    I was hoping someone can give me some advice on how to get out of this again.

    I used to have depression in the past and when I reached a certain stage about a year ago, I realised all the work and techniques I'd put into overcoming it had finally worked and I felt stable and normal and content with my life once again.

    However during the start of this week I noticed warning signs of my mental state not being great again, and by the time it got to Thursday I had a full-blown mental breakdown and plummeted into one of the worst depressive states I've had for a while.

    And now i'm stuck with where I am. I'm in such a bad state that I think that if I overcome this again, I'll probably just fall back into it again in a years time. I just do not know how on earth to actually '''motivate''' myself to try and become sane again, when it just seems like a battle I'm going to lose.

    So ye tl;dr relapsed into depression, need advice on how I'm going to try and drag myself out of it again considering the first time was so hard.

    I can't as nothing seems to make me happy/give me pleasure lately. None of my interests interest me anymore.

    I've adjusted myself back into a normalish routine but I still just feel terrible.

    Never taken meds for my depression, got over it with CBT and such.
