Hi all. I was just seeking advice and possibly reassurance. I went through a really bad depressive episode 2 years ago and after what felt like a lifetime and lots of trial and error I found medication that helped me, anyway I was doing really well until a week ago. Had the odd bad day which I could cope with but a week ago I started having that horrible sense of doom and sadness wash over me again. My question is.... is this normal? Am I bound to have dips like this or does it sound like I'm relapsing? I've managed to pull my psychiatrist appointment forward and see her next week but I'm worried that she will want me to try new medication because I'm already on highest doses of my meds and they was working great until recently, this scares me because of the hell I went through finding a med that suited and also the hell I will go through getting off my meds. Does anyone else go through blips like this and manage to pull through? I'm really hoping I'm not relapsing as I don't know if I can get through that hell again. Any advice or input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks... Leanne.
