DD is going to Uni next week. DS at Uni about to start Y3 but had 2 years of depression, he is still at uni but still finding life tough. Heart is breaking with fear at DD going too. I know she's different but I can't help but worry. Anyone out there in the same boat, or with advice?

What a tough situation to be in ,I can understand why you must be feeling like this ,poor you .
Wish I had some practical advice to give ....maybe DD will have learnt from DS's experience ?
Is there any comfort in thinking how unlikely it would be for both to be depressed ? Bit like lightening striking twice ?

Hope your DS is getting help and support .
Oh ,and maybe also post here
