Being able to just "pull it together"? or "just get better" is unrealistic..you are right - it's a bit of a long road to recovery..but it is achievable in time..thank goodness
The fact that you can still act like there is nothing amiss in your life and that you are still working is really good..now you just have to convince yourself of this lol.
So what part of the day is the hardest for you? When I am feeling down like you are just now I always detest mornings!
Tell your doctor exactly what you have told us I'm better than when we began...but you would expect to feeling a lot better than this in the very near future - It may well be that you need an adjustment in your meds just to get you over this bad patch.
Don't forget to praise yourself for any small achievements during each day..small steps lead to big strides when it comes to recovery..I think you are doinf remarkably well just going from what you have told us so far Keep up the good work!
