Most of my feelings of anxiety etc especially towards my boyfriend weren't present!
 
I had a good weekend and managed to enjoy myself lots thanks to the absence!

Scotsgal,

Depression is a fickle thing. It'll give you a take of how you were before all this happened, and then hit you in full force. It's happened to me many times. I'd have a number of days when I felt like I had finally got over it, and then out of nowhere, the following morning, I would feel horrible. All I can say is take advantage of those days that you have a "high" in life. I don't really have anymore advice, so good luck :)

Hi Scotsgal
I am really glad that you had a good weekend.
Depression does have it's ups and downs..plus you have to give the meds the amount of time needed to take full effect.
Remember though,meds don't cure the depression they help you get through it. But, you have to figure out what triggered it in the first place. So continue with the counseling and be patient.

I know it just gets me down though how I've been so happy and it felt great, at least I know that deep down I can be happy with myself and I CAN be happy with my boyfriend. Pity it wasn't like this all the time. Sometimes my life feels at a loose end with bits of it flying here there and everywhere and others its all makes perfect sense!

It sucks :(

Scotsgal, just because we are depressed doesn't mean that we are not thinking correctly about everything in our lives.  Is it possible that your emotions are trying to tell you something like being in a relationship isn't right for you at this time.  It doesn't mean that your bf isn't a great person or that you can't see each other occassionally but I have to wonder if things were better on your own, perhaps your emotions are trying to tell you that you need to be on your own for a while.  There is nothing wrong with that.

Just take things one day at a time scotsgal, that is really all you can do.
And remember the good days and try to forget the bad. (easier said than done I know)

Today has been even worse! My boss has been awful with me all day! For no reason, I havn't even done anything! Shes been ok with everyone BUT me but whenever I speak to her she either nods or I get a one word answer, worse thing is we have a works night out tonight, one of our collegues 50th. I have been looking forward to it for a while, but now I don't want to go. I don't feel comfortable.

What should I do??

My boss gets that way when she is overwhelmed. Then she apologizes later,so I have learned to ignore it.
I would not worry to much about it unless she tells you there is a problem.
Go out tonight and enjoy it,you might see a big change in her once she is out of the office.

Relax scotsgal...rocky days come and go..and as long as you keep up the good work with counselling etc there will be less of them I promise.. tongue
When things are unsteady with our emotions we tend to take every little thing very seriously..we are way over sensitive to other peoples moods and actions..trust me I know lol..
There is no rule that says you have to attend a night out with your work colleagues..the choice is yours..do what feels comfortable..it's kinda cool to help celebrate a special 50th birthday - leave work stuff at work and allow yourself to enjoy.
