I am scared that I am falling into depression again, atleast the symptoms are all the same as the last time. I feel as my life is just all the same, and that I have nothing at all to look forward to. I feel this despite the fact that I have a GREAT family, a GREAT boyfriend and recently even got a promotion that I worked very hard for. I was depressed a few years back and I was on meds as well. I did recover from this - but like I said - i am getting scared that it is coming back to haunt me. I had some problems in my life back then - however I have worked through them so that should be solved. I have been feeling like this for the past 3 weeks - and I donĀ“t really know of I shoudl ask for help or if it is just a temporary downhill. awww, why is life complicated???

i know someone who suffers from depression , It is good that you are seeing these things for yourself , Go back to the doctor you saw before and explain how you feel , you might want to go back on the medication even if only for a short time , the new job might take a wee bit of breaking in , good luck . you are half way to getting better just because you can SEE the symptoms xx

congrats on the promotion hon!! you are right, it may be stress and you may need to take time out for yourself a little more but i would go to the doctor and speak to them about your fears. its better to get on top of it than let it get worse till it engulfs you completely. it may be temporary but it also may be something else...a chemical imbalance that you cant control...im no doc so have no idea.... try getting more sleep and taking some 'me' time and do something that makes you happy...even something as simple as a long relaxing bath and reading in it or listening to music....pamper yourself at least onve a week...that may help too....even though im not workin at the moment, i got told to do more for me...to treat myself better...not always easy. hope you feel better soon hon lotsa hugs your way

Life is not easy, and you need to get back on your meds. It is a chemical imbalance my dear. Please seek some help before it gets worse. I suffer from it too, and I must stay on the pills. I go off, it starts again. Blessings my dear. Feel good.

My heart goes out to you. I understand what it is like to live in fear about your health. I sugest you go ahead and ask for help before things really get into full swing. That way you don't have to keep wondering on your own and those who really care about you won't suffer with not knowing how to help you out,
