Can I just clear up a langauge barrier issue here? What do you mean by regress? I know what it means to me and it doesnt seem to fit what you are saying so it might be a UK/US language thing.
Either way, you need to talk to a doctor about this. He/She should be able to get you back on track.
I am in agreement with the other wise ones who have posted before me. You need to make an appointment with your physician to take care of your issues.
If watching your friend go through a depressive episode is causing you concerns and affecting your mood you have to take a step back and help her as a friend and not get so emotionally involved that it is tipping you into depression. This sound like her depression is a trigger for you.
If your depression is becoming worse, you must take care of you first. That is not being selfish. Each person is responsible for seeking out help if they can and I feel you are a person that can do this.
I am so sorry that we were not able to come up with a suitable suggestion that would work for you. I understand that you are doing what you feel you need to do. Gentle Hugs.
Please take care.
