A lot of people are in depression and never reliezed it until after they got sober, but 16 months is a long time for dep. to show its head. I have suffered from depression on and off my whole life, i was clean untill 04 for twenty five years. The way I know that my dep. is about to show up I will start getting emotional at the slightest thing, a song, a story, my own thoughts, any thing will make me want to tear up. Good luck you may want to talk to your DR

Thx to both of you...never had been diagnosed with depression, definitely wanted something for anxiety at times lol but the doc said normal stress in the working world.  I'm pretty upbeat most of the time so this came around and the only time I can ever remember  getting emotional (where I wasn't controlling it), especially over a commercial, was when I was coming off meds so this just made me wonder.

Thx Again...
