This was taken one year ago today. It had been almost 4 months since I was hospitalized, I found a great new therapist, and changed my medications.
I remember this day well; I had the lowest PHQ-9 score in over a year, and I felt hopeful that I was getting better. And then COVID hit, and the stable ground I thought I had found disappeared.
Currently my PHQ-9 is categorized as moderate. It has been 20 long months, but I’m climbing out of this depressive episode slowly.
Be well, be kind, take it one day at a time.
