    Yes it is normal for your mood to be up and down.  Recovery comes in patches so expect some days or weeks feeling good, then maybe some days feeling low.  Slowly the low times will get less and disappear.  It's how it happened for me.

    Skin problems ...... make sure it's not something else you've used ie different cream, soap, shampoo etc.  Happened to me when I changed my face cream ... was a few weeks later when I noticed my eyelids were dry and a bit red.  All ok now.

      Hello Marf, I completely understand how you feel. Yesterday for me was like I had my life back! And last night I slept through the whole night without waking up once which I have been doing for over a month since all this happened to me. I had no feelings of anxiety or depression yesterday.

      When I woke up this morning without getting up through the night I said to myself I'm finally over this Anxiety and Depression. Then the dreded anxiety in my chest came out of nowhere! I am having anxiety right now! But as beautiful Kate said, it is a up and down thing. As time goes on you WILL get better for good. The fact that you have had all those good days is proof. It's just very scary to feel it come back after feeling good for so long.

      And I am starting to remember three years ago when I went through this I would have two or three weeks of feeling good and then I wouldn't feel good for a day or two. But it all worked out and I was fine for 2 years until this recent loss of my 21 year old son.

      And for people going through a loss, the meds won't take your grieve away, but it makes it so you can handle it so much better. I can cry now, but the pain is different. It's sad, but I am able to handle it. Where as when the depression and anxiety are there, I can't handle it and feel I am going crazy.

      TIME is the answer!!! And God!!!!!

      You will get better!!!!

      Oh yes, it is cruel.  When you're feeling good everything looks roay and you can see this illness for what it is.  Then you you feel low it all goes out the window again!

      It is indeed cruel.

      Oh I'm so sorry for your loss .... so very sorry.

      I lost my parents 6 years ago, both within weeks of each other.  Yes the meds don't stop you grieving but they help as you say.

      When I recovered from my depression-anxiety many years ago the early morning anxiety was the last thing to go.

      Time is indeed a healer.

      Robert, that's is so sad.  Am sorry for both your losses.  Yes it is hard, very hard.  Think I cried every day for about a year ..... time is a healer.  I miss them every day but am no longer sad as I once was.

      I do feel for you. x
