hi carmel. jamie here.
you have done well in recognising that your depression has come back. i feel a chat with your dr. would be a wise move. a clear dx will aide in co-ordinating an effective response in your recovery; this maybe counselling, medication and or a similar allied response.
one day at a time is my motto, and something i learn't from a good mate on this forum is to focus on the here and now. deep slow breathing is effective, meditation, yoga, and or anything that can stimulate you is also very carthartic. may i suggest you do a daily journal, helps get it out. pen from mind mind to paper. also this is a very effective tool you can use when you are engaging with a new counsellor. you have reached out here, and a mum of 4, well..........that's some hard work in itself. i wish you well and hope that you are feeling better soon. with compassion, jamie.
ps welcome 2 the forum.
