In recent weeks I have felt that I may no longer be depressed. Yes I am still self harming but that never goes away, depressed or not. My social worker and old CPN disagree (strongly). I saw my shrink yesterday and she also disagrees. When I think about our conversation, I can see why. She asked me to rate my mood on a scale of 1-10 (3 was my response) and if I was getting pleasure or enjoyment from anything (my answer was no). I can recognise depression even if I rarely admit to it but at the moment I just don’t know. How do you tell or do you let them decide? That is what they are paid to do, what they have spent many years training to do.
