Is this recovering from depression?

I'm not sure how to explain this but I feel like I've come out of somewhere dark. Things have begun to "matter" to me again. This all started when I decided to take some time off and improve my maintenance, experiment with new hobbies, and explore different possibilities with my life. The most important thing was to take action and experiment with doing things that were pleasurable. After several weeks of this I feel very different, more like somewhat back to my "old self". I don't think I've felt this way in several years, possibly longer. Have I been depressed this whole time?

hi x that sounds positive x im not sure if you were depressed the whole time but it is good you are starting to feel better
I guess sometimes it isn't easy to tell how we are feeling when we are going through it ,sometimes others recognise a difference in us while we do not
welcome to the forum x love Lu xxx
