I'd really appreciate your insight.
Last year, I went through a large number of personal crisis events which seemed to keep building up. Eventually, I ended up with depression symptoms (including lethargic, in tears for days, demotivated, tired, sleepy, suicidal thoughts). Throughout the process, I have been seeing a psychiatrist and it's been incredibly valuable.
Over the last 8 months, I've tried to own the situation and move it forward. Until recently, it felt like I was in quick sand and couldn't get traction.
Since New Years, things have changed. I've made great headway towards getting my lifestyle back and solving a lot of the issues. Then suddenly, out of the blue two days ago, I started shaking, crying, wanting to sleep and couldn't motivate myself to get moving. Wow! I didn't see that coming! I feel strong again now - my family and friends moved quickly and supported me.
My question is - have you seen this before? I feel like I'm making great progress ... I feel like I'm getting momentum and things are getting better - so why have I had what feels like a huge set back?
Do you have to go through what you went through when all the drama started to pull yourself back out? Is it possible to become so comfortable with living in a depressed, dramatic world that you suffer extreme anxiety when you start to leave that world?
The last few days have really shocked me. For someone who felt great and was moving forward, I hadn't seen this coming. I'm off to see a medical professional tomorrow to see if they have any thoughts.
In the meantime, I'd really appreciate your thoughts
