I know it doesn't seem possible but I am..I'm happy but I can feel that tiny bit of depression deep within..It's sounds crazy but it's true like it's trying to suck me back in...

I have felt that way before. Usually I am really happy but then somehow within the happiness there is some depression. For me it eventually "sucks me back in" and it takes a little for me to get back out. I look at it like this. Depression is like asthma. I will always have it and it will always be there, but I won't always have problems with it. I won't always have an asthma attack but I could at any time. I will have problems with my depression and it will get the best of me, by I can do things to make it better and prevent it and keep it away as long as possible. Same with my asthma.

Yes I feel that way right now. I feel okay but then when my mind wanders it wanders towards depressive thoughts. Its like I have to fight to keep the depression away.

When you start to feel the depression creep in a little, stop, think of all the wonderful things you have in your life.

Another idea is ask your doctor about Abilify which gives the antidepressant a boost.
