name changed as I was scared of being outed from other MH threads etc.

I was getting over my depression and moving on to being a functioning member of society again and looking forward for the first time in about 3 years.

Then something happened that sent me back to square one. So now what?
What the hell do I do now? It hasnt hit me yet but when it does I fear I will be as bad as I ever was.

Yes, what about the Samaritans? You can talk to them in confidence.

Can you look at the work you have done to overcome your depression up to now, and try to do things in your daily life that reinforce them? I am trying to do this at the moment. It's hard, but I am determined not to relapse.

I find it very helpful to focus on life as one day at a time. Also I say to myself that I'd prefer not to fee like this, but I know I can handle it.
