The main indication that you are depressed anymore will be that you feel better!
You have hope
You may have good and bad days, but that’s a temporary feeling not a constant state
You enjoy activities
You’re sleeping more normally
You feel good about yourself
You enjoy relationships again
You have hobbies and activities that are interesting and exciting to you
Work seems absorbing and interesting again
The time it will take to recover from depression will vary. A big factor is how long you’ve been depressed. Also whether there’s a family history of depression. Each person is unique.
The use of alcohol (which is a depressant) can make it more difficult to overcome depression.
Exercise is a helpful component. Learning to have relationships with people that are not overwhelming or controlling. Learning to identify what is a double bind situation in your life, where you feel stuck. This can often lead to depression.
Depression is a treatable condition that is often helped with therapy. It can be a complex condition with no one solution. Sometimes the longer you wait to get help the more stubborn it is to leave.
