Had serious depression/suicidal thoughts for 5+ years
Recently had like 4 to 5 months where i felt great
Thought my pain has healed
Past few weeks it has crept back

I have a birthday party coming up in 2 days, and my anxiety is spiralling out of control again

I know things will get better, but these bad times are so unbearable!!

Hope you guys are doing well, a lot of us are in the same boat

I'm glad you had a few months feeling great, but I'm sorry the depression has crept back. Do you have any idea why it returned?


I find that when I can tell people that I have anxiety, my anxiety becomes much less.
No idea why it returned
Nothing much changed

My anxiety and negative thoughts just came back out of nowhere and its terrible
Before i could block it out easily, now its been stuck in my head for hours and days

Was there also no change when it left?
I fixed up my sleep, started regular daily exercise, got medicated, meditated, quit drugs and cut back on alcohol for it to leave
I still follow those steps, but the days are getting worse all of a sudden
