Hi everyone! I'm completely new to this, but I've been struggling with anxiety and depression for quite some time now. I'm a current college student, and I've had an especially hard semester. I really ended up relying on my best friend a lot to get me through all of my suicidal thoughts and tendencies to not really care about myself, and I know that I hurt him a lot in the process. I guess what I'm struggling with most now is all the guilt that I feel. I'm working on trying to forgive myself and to be a better person, but everything can be hard and frustrating and overwhelming. I would really appreciate any advice that people have on how to forgive yourself, how to be happy, and what it means for you to "deal with things." My happiness is important to me for the first time in awhile, and I want to learn to be independent and to live the best life I possibly can for myself, for my best friend, and for my mom. I'm also taking 50mg of sertraline each day and have found it to be not too effective for my anxiety especially. If anyone else is on Zoloft/sertraline and has any experiences to offer, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance.
