I had a very short relapse recently, but I was able to talk myself out of it. I haven't really been depressed since I moved back home (I consider anyways). I think for the most part my medications work also. I have been working with my Mom cleaning houses and most of the time it's rewarding (even though I resist going). I've noticed that I got depressed most often when I felt things were "out of control" and, often being afraid to talk to anyone I avoided the problem, which of course made it worse. I think living on my own with limited contact with others was a downfall as well. I actually had a pay as you go phone that would lose its signal on a windy day.
