Are you on any medication? Do you have any emotional support?

I'm on medication not sure how much it's helps and my support is not the best I'm just trying to hang in there.

I know sometimes that's all you can do is try to hang in there. Sometimes everyday is a struggle. I get it. Which medication and how long have you been on it?

I'm currently on zoloft and effexor I've been on zoloft for about 10 years or so and the effexor I just started a few weeks ago.

Did the Zoloft help when you first started it? Will you keep taking both ?

Zoloft works well for people who can take it. You may just have to stay on it.

I will support you use this to vent at will

Thanks

Hey Matt. You said you were fine for a long time and then it came back. Sometimes identifying the "trigger" can help work through it. I'm glad you're here.

Yes I was fine for along time all I did was take a couple of days off work to do things around the house and then I went back and this all started.

Are you on meds? I have had anxiety and depression for the past 8 months. Some days are better than others. Do you have a therapist ? It's really important.

I've been on medication for 10 years or so. And ya i have a counselor

Hi! My name is Brenda & I've posted a few times about my thyroid. However, this is a different problem. He now has me on Xanax because I'm dealing with several problems. I live with my mother who is 95 yrs. old & I'm 65. But now I'm concerned about some of the signs of dementia she may have. My sister also sees some of the same. Also, I'm disabled from an accident & it's really difficult for me to share some of the responsibilities of cooking, cleaning the house; but I do all I can. Mother still drives ..no problem but I do worry about her. I guess I just need some moral support & lots of prayers! Merry Christmas! Brenda

I would see a therapist that is what I do go on psychology today and look for one in your area

Hi Matt. You are not alone. I have been going through the same exact thing for the passed 6 months. We can definitely get our life back. Have you taken the step to see a therapist? I finally took the first step to see one. We are here to support one another. Do it for your little one.

I have a therapist but things don't seem to be better I'm just here going through the emotions every day. I feel like I'm drunk all the time like it's depersonalization I don't know just hate all of this.

Do u see anybody

Hi! I've not posted for a while. I'm still on antidepressants (25 years+); now I am also on Xanax. .5 mg. Some of my problems are associated with a fall down stairs--stroke, displaced bones in foot, hair coming out & many more. I am so distressed. My faith & prayer life help me get through the day, plus the 8 different meds I'm on. I can't remember any happy days. Thank you! Brenda
