I've suffered from depression since I was 19 and now 49. It's been almost gone for periods and it's lurked in the shadows often, but it's only been serious three times and I'm currenlty recovering from the last bad one. I've worked and supported myself until the depression cost me my last job. At the moment I'm living in government housing on disability. My income is very little, but it pays my bills and keeps food in the cupboards. I don't have much, but I do have security. As I get better I've found myself afraid to get well and chance losing the security I have finally. Has or does anyone else have this experience? I've been much better off financially in my life, but I lost all that because of my depression. I feel very insecure in my ability to take care of myself again.
