I'm 24 and have dealt with depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember. But I still feel like I need to prove I need help, or I feel like I'm not worthy of accessing resources. But today I finally went and saw a doctor and got back on antidepressants. When I took them for the first time four years ago, I had trouble accepting that I needed to take them. Each pill felt like defeat. I feel better this time around about taking them, because my ability to function has gotten really difficult, anxiety attack are rampant, and I just need help.
Maybe someone can give some insight into what restarting antidepressants feels like? Also, how do you handle anxiety attacks?
