Depression is back, having dark thoughts

I was depressed for months this winter, it finally went away, but it has come back recently - I spend a lot of my time on the couch, sobbing.

Also been having dark thoughts and intrusive images of me cutting myself (wrists).

I had my Risperdal dose lowered a bit about a month ago - I do know that Risperdal has antidepressant properties, bet you that this could be the cause of my depression returning.

If I continue to have these dark thoughts and images, Im going to call my psychiatrist early next week.

The days are now getting longer and brighter a bit and I am feeling very low again - this sux!

Oh I’m sorry @Wave this sucks!

Hope it lifts soon.

Best of luck.

Hi wave just know it will go away again.
When Younare in depression it’s hard to think you’ll get out of it but you will.
Do you have any professional help at all?

Put on some bright colored clothing. I have on a bright orange turtle neck to combat the blues. It’s called the February blahs and it’s very common. So don’t feel alone. They made Valentine’s Day in February on purpose.

Wishing some sunlight reaches you soon.

Maybe a short walk outside if the weather is nice would help raise your spirits and endorphins.
