Hiya Sad & Angry,
I think a mood stabaliser would be a good thing to try. Most AED's (Anti-Epileptic Drugs) are also used as mood stabalisers so I do know about most of them. Carbamazipine / Tegretol (The one I take) and also Lamotrigine / Lamictal are common ones and have fewer side effects. Bi-Polar is not the first thing that enters my mind IMO but we have a Bi-Polar forum as well so if you are worried, you could throw an idea out over there... they are fantastic. It sounds more like a depressive relapse but since you seem to have caught it early it is likely that it will be easier to treat. When you had depression the first time, did you have any therapy or was it just meds? If you didnt have therapy, then maybe this would be a good consideration (Assuming this is depression).
Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.
