It sounded like you are still not feeling "content" yet with how things are going, so that's why I said it would be helpful to talk with your therapist since that may be a good place to put things in perspective and see which things are symptoms of clinical depression and which are "situational" and can still be addressed in therapy (she should be able to help you with distinguishing these).

Regarding "not knowing what normal feels like," you'll know when you get there, kind of like the realization that comes with finding "normal" sleep again... you just know when you feel it. So, if you don't "feel" OK yet, aren't "sure" you are there yet, then you aren't. And that just means it will take more time and investigation to reach. And don't worry too much about figuring out an exact time to increase the remeron; if in 3 weeks or so you are still on an upslope of the recovery curve, there's no hurry to go up on the dose just because it's there (I think the mountain analogy just got out of hand). The time to think about raising the dose is when the improvement has leveled off but you feel that you haven't reached "feeling really good and/or normal" yet.
