Hi is there any mature folks that have found relieve from depression once they get older?
I have been going through a very bad patch since last October and seem to take one step forward and then three back!
At the moment I cant even leave the house, and don't understand why? just that I wont. I have gone off sick from work for a week now and really must return before I loose my job and income.
Does anyone know how long you are supposed to expect Sertraline to work? I have been taking it now for two weeks and definately feeling worse now than before and really want to give up.
I don't have any support around and as I have difficulty comunicating sometimes, so it's hard to seak help in person. I still have a daughter in her mid twenties that needs me around even if she is only home once or twice a week, but she has no idea about my anxieties and I dont want to frighten her as I have scarred her in the past with my history of self harm.
I want to fight this, don't think that these pills are the answer but willing to try them, but would be grateful of any advise as I think I have tried just about everything to no avail in the years gone by.
I must be able to get past this cloud as after all I somehow have got to 60!
