    Ive had depression for 16 years the anxiety only started 4  months ago and its been constant so I dont know about it coming back personally but Ive read a lot of post on this forum and it does tend to come and go with a lot of people just when you think its gone boom its back kinda thing

    I think you are stressed at the moment with your son and stress brings anxiety on.

    Im sure you've just had a blip
