Just when I thought life was getting better

Finally got a job after two years of depression/mental illness. Have been there nearly 4 months. Things have been going fairly well, have had feelings of self worth, my job is my life, sort of thing. But recently... Things have taken a turn for the worse. SH for the first time in months. Have even been drinking tonight, on a Monday! Know it's a shit coping method, but I have to work tomorrow and SHing again can't happen. Need some other way to cope. Feel like it's all falling away again. Still single, the reason I fell into depression in the first place, can't see ever being in a relationship. Really struggling to see being alive for much longer. No plans to do anything drastic, but worried that things will get worse and worse until I see no other option. Yet again

Have you had any therapy? It would help you with your coping methods and stopping things before they get really bad.

The conditions you are suffering because of your extreme thinking. Be normal. Don't think in extreme. Try therapies or exercises that gonna help you.
