I am new to DS and I thought I'd ask others if they can tell when depression starts to really hit them. What things do you notice? My daughter will notice I am not myself long before I ever realize it. It hurts to know that I'm obviously not myself and stressing the family. I have not yet learned to detect the signs. I am not even sure I know what the signs are. When I go completely down, it is time for a medication change. Knowing that it will get better with another medication is what keeps me holding on and stops suicide attempts. Medication is my hope. The only time I hit bottom is when it is a medication issue. Unfortunately, I am not aware of it. I have one friend that can bring me out of it and I'll listen to him. My family calls him when it gets bad. Anyone else have a similar experience?
