    Lauren - what you are describing is perfectly normal. Coming back from holiday is a comedown and you will have a reaction to it. Being away from your usual routine and being able to relax is like a drug, so when you come back to "reality", it hits you, and often quite hard. Bit of acceptance and self-compassion is needed here. Try to reflect on what was good about your break. You will be very vulnerable at this time.

    If you had bipolar, you would more likely be making decisions that you wouldn't normally do, compulsively spending money or making plans that you normally wouldn't consider. It is a different condition to the rollercoaster of depression. You have a very valid reason to be feeling the way you do, but it will pass. I am sure if you ask other people (with or without mental health issues) they will also tell you that they feel a little "down" after returning from a holiday.

I'm loosing hope.. I went to the doctors for a review an they told me give it another 3 weeks because it takes up to 6 weeks for thdm to kick in but when i see some improvements it doesn't last that long i feel like I'm going out of my mind because I just wanna get better but I'm starting to loose patients....
