Post session depression

Does anyone ever get depressed after a long session? I’ve found that particularly after 5 day or longer sessions, I get depressed. I love working and often am pumped full of adrenaline throughout, so some of it is obviously the physical comedown.
After 20 years I’ve become accustomed to it, so I recognize it and know how to deal, just wondering if it happens to anyone else.

It hasn't happened to me, but I did find several articles online where it's been determined that there's a connection between stress and depression.

Could it be that you are becoming emotionally attached to your studio projects? Happened to me...I fixed my psych by switching to mixing live events and am much happier...

Yeah, kinda. But in my case it's a sort of loneliness. The recording will be great fun, especially if the musicians are good and everything went well (although it's there in a different way if things don't go to plan), but once it's done and everyone leaves, I find it quite sad and lonely on multiple levels.

Is that something similar or are you talking about something completely different. Can you clarify more what you mean?

It could be partial loneliness, but I think it’s more a come down from days and days of adrenaline, combined with general goid feelings and vibes with the band. So loneliness could be a factor in that.

It sounds ridiculous but it may also be connected to sunlight (Vitamin D) deficiency. It affects our feelings more than most think.

Gym, videogames, icecream and some herbs after that kind of stuff tends to fix it.
