It has been probably 6 weeks since I started to feel a lot better and this has continued to progress, but it has not been without its down days. But these perhaps are just normal down days instead of depressed days, but I do get very worried when these come about and think this could be the start of depression again. This road to recovery has not come easy, it is difficult knowing how hard to push yourself and when to go back into things full blown, I do feel I am that stage now.
The fear of the illness coming back though is quite a scary one, everytime I feel a little down I think this is it, I am going back into that hole again, but I try to get busy and this seems to help to keep it at bay and because of this I think this is definitely not depression, just feeling down. I dont feel like my full recovery will come until I get back into the full routine of work, which I am not quite there with yet.
How has your recovery been from depression?? leave a comment and let me know what you think.
