Not a choice

CuseFan3212 profile image

I have been moody and snapping at my best friend lately. I’m angry then I’m sad. I can’t control my emotions and thoughts and feelings. I went to the doctor to find out the anti depressant I have been on for 5 years wasn’t working. I’m in the process of switching to a new med. Its rough and a struggle. My best friend is no longer talking to me. It’s like I chose to have depression

I can relate to this. I snap on family and friends & feel sad & lonely. It definitely sucks. My medicine is not working either. I've always had to increase dose. Then switch medicine. Recently I started using CBD oil w/o THC. It's helped a lot. Lozapram helps when I am having a real bad anxiety attack. It work very fast. I hope you find the right treatment!

You are not alone!

Thank you Brianna for your reply. I was on Paxil for 5 years and didn’t know it wasn’t working. It def explains a lot though and makes sense. I am on day 4 of Wellbutrin and it’s a struggle. I’ve been sick from side effects and a mess bc it’s not built up in my system. I have no support it seems. I’m hoping this will help

The problem with meds is that the side effects vary so widely from person to person. I was on Prozac for two weeks once, and it was the worst time of my life. Yet many people have been helped by it.

I hate to say it, but you need some patience to see if and how any med will work out for you. I hope your current med will come through for you.

A good heart-to-heart with your best friend should help. Explain that it was your depression talking, not you.

I am def gonna tough it out with this med until it reaches the proper level in my system. 3-4 weeks. I have tried to talk to my best friend but she won’t respond to messages. Has just pretty much said she doesn’t want to deal with it and won’t allow me to explain my recent doctors visit or anything. So hard without your friends

Give it some time, and let things cool down. Focus on getting yourself better now.
