51, it's not depression that breaks things for me WB, it's severe trauma while severely manic, you must realise that the end of long term relationships and friendships and the complete loss of environment and independence are all massive further traumas when severely manic with psychosis, trauma on trauma on trauma on trauma, so many successive major traumas, while severely manic, well WB, there's no coming back from that, unfortunatelyDepression does have a knack of chipping away at you, taking pieces every time, huh? It always leaves me that little bit more worn out than the last time, even the smaller episodes of it because there's that resigned sickness of it and feeling that yes, this will again one day return. It would be so nice to be rid of it forever. Sadness I can handle, that's natural, but depression...sheesh!
How old are you both @Mav2126 & @Comorbidity if you don't mind me asking? (A 5 year range will suffice if you don't want to give away particulars).
