That is one of the things that I'm afraid of; making my friend's depression worse by telling her that I'm depressed as well.
I don't want to talk to my doctor about my depression because the last time I did that he related my depression and migraines to me being an attention seeker. Of course, being called that doesn't help the depression at all.
By regress I meant going backwards. I went through severe depression, eventually got better and now I am going back into the depression. Does that help clear up the confusion?
Knowing how depressed my friend is, I don't really feel that I can step back and worry about me first. It would make me feel guilty, which is another depression trigger for me.
Thank you all for your posts, I really do appreciate the advice, even if I don't think I can take it at the moment,
