Default Cyclical Depression

It has been a long time since I posted in this section. This is the very reason I am creating this thread.

My Depression is cyclical and I wonder how common this is.

I look back at my mental health history and I observe that I am at the lowest of lows on each approach to summer. This is when the Depression is debilitatingly bad. My hospitalizations have been at this time of year. I have watched entire Summers go by from a psych ward window on more than one occasion.

Anyway, I have concerns this will be one of those years yet again. I feel myself slipping rapidly.

The thing is I have good to look forward to. I have reasons to be joyful yet the inklings of despair are creeping upwards.

I had a therapy session this morning which accomplished nothing but a hell of a cry. My psychologist wants to see me more often (great except her schedule is full). She also wants a chat with my psychiatrist about tweaking my medications. She is obviously concerned.

I am not just sad but scared.
