Little signs of depression :(

Oh no

10 years ago, I was diagnosed with depression and I was on medication. It was a terrible phase.
This week I have not been able to go to work or get my work done from home. It tookk me four days to update just my CV.

The only thing I can do is go to Bikram yoga and the gym. At least I am still moving.
I went to the doctor, initially to say that I could not sleep (for 6 weeks now). Instead, insomnia seems to be the result but not the cause. Stress, lack of self belief etc...

No prescription for now. Thank God. Just days off work and finding balance again.
I am still worried, I still have not even started my work project.

Anyway could this be linked to my weightloss?
I do have a past with Eating disorder. (I am going to therapy now)

this is what I found so far:

Must stay positive.
I have achieved so much physically;
Must keep smiling

    Take it slow. Don't jump to conclusions. Wait and see what the next few days and weeks have to bring.
    I was treated for depression several times in my teens through mid-20's, both in-patient and out.
    There have been times since then when I've been worried that I was starting to slide back into a deep depression - it hasn't happened.
    I am much better equipped now to deal with it and see the signs and take action. We are not helpless and just being cognizant of what's going on is half the battle.
    Hang in there kiddo. Keep trying to do what you know works. Exercise, keep on as regular a schedule as possible, get out of the house. It's your daily medicine right now.
    Above and beyond all else, if you do come to realize that you need more help, get it ASAP.
    No reason to needlessly suffer. No shame in treating a chronic medical condition just as you would any other.

    It may be true, you are changing your lifestyle and your body is adjusting to the change in different foods you are eating. Exercise increased the endorphins, and so does sunshine and fresh air. Make sure you're getting plenty of both. Finally, talk with your therapist you're making changes to your eating habits and their may be a connection with your past eating disorder. emoticon emoticon

    everyday is a new opportunity my dear - please do not give up on yourself. things change all the time - you are strong - dig down deep - have confidence - you do not have to 'dread' what will come next. YOU WILL MAKE SURE that everything you go through will make you stronger - and you in turn will help others - that is a gift.
    i know cause i understand -
    treat yourself as well as you can - eat well, exercise - rest and LAUGH - even when you think there is nothing to laugh about. there always is something to savor - the sunset, a light summer rain.
    do you have a pet - they are so THERAPEUTIC and you can never duplicate their love and devotion - all for free - just for the taking. i have two pugs and they save my life everyday. i am in a very difficult situation and if i did not get up every day to see their little faces and hear them 'talk' to me - i would have been in the grave long ago.
    i will remember you in my prayers - please keep in touch and anytime you want to talk i am here. you can do this - you have a life and are entitled to happiness - keep strong - BB
