I recently posted about wondering if I've fallen out of love with my boyfriend though I feel like my depression has gotten better. But it got me thinking... how can you tell if your depression has really gotten better or if it is still sticking around?
I feel good! I'm friendly and want to go out with friends again and I'm finding interest in things I used to love to do - I lost those major points of my personality when I went into my slump of depression. To me, that makes me feel like I've gotten much better. But what if I haven't? How do I tell? I feel like that is such a simple thing to see.
I've read a lot of fourms about people who have gone through this but all that I've read involve the person still having depression or not even being treated for it. Falling out of love seems to be very common when people have depression and/or are on medication. I'm on Wellbutrin XL 300 mg a day but, what gives me doubt about it being my depression or medication's fault is that I haven't found anything online or from my doctor that would suggest it makes you fall out of love.
For a little while I was numb to feeling because I was just so exhausted of being depressed but that isn't the case anymore. Can anyone tell me about their experience snapping out of depression for the most part? What was it like? How did you know? Were there any signs that you thought you were getting better but you really still had depression?
