I recently quit my job and am sooo happy right now. I feel like it was my job that was doing it. I had been feeling that way for a while, but it just boiled over.
I was hoping that my depression will not come back when I get a new job. I don't want to go back into that hole. It's scary. I am still seeing my doctor and taking my pills, but i have gottne afraid it may come back. I also have anxiety, so it may just be my anxiety.
What odes everyone else think?

Gee....wish I could quit my job but I have to work to eat and have a roof over my head. Don't you? Also, productive work is good for one's self esteem and self worth.....all which are important in keeping depression at bay. Lesley

Bubblyboo, You were indeed in a terrible work environment.  I hope that your depression doesnt come back but sometimes it does...it is hard to say, perhaps try just living one day at a time and going from there.  This will help your anxiety greatly I know.  Please keep us posted.  Take care

I agree with elisha (as always!) - try and take one day at a time.  I think when something bad has happened to us, we always worry it will happen again.  Its good to try and get out of the negative thinking if you can and try and challenge your thoughts.  Why would it happen to you again?  Is there any evidence that it will happen again? etc
I know how you feel as I have often worried that if ive had a panic attack in a certain place, I ll have a panic attack there again and things like that.  I try and talk myself out of thinking this way if I can but Its not easy.
I think that the work environment you were in cause you a lot of stress but if you find a job which you enjoy you should not have this problem again.  Be selective in looking for a job and I think you will know when you have found the right one and it will feel right.
Take care
