Does anyone else live in constant fear of the next episode? I recently came out of a depressive episode and mine are typically very long and severe so it really takes a toll on my life. I’m currently trying to fix everything from the last one and I’m so scared that any day could be the start of the next one.

    I relate to this fear paradox.

    I relate in a different way - for me it’s not depressive episodes, so much as suicidal spirals, but yea, definite constant fear of the next one…

      that comes along with my depression. My episodes are completely debilitating at times and I can’t get out of bed for days at a time and I’m scared to be alone because of what I might do and it’s ruining my life

    I can definitely relate to this I am always afraid that they will come when I need to focus especially but I've learned to mange by having volunteer work to look forward to to feel that I have a purpose

      I recently decided that I wanted to change my career path and I’m extremely excited about it and I’m hoping that will help keep the depression away. But I’m also so scared having another episode is going to ruin everything
