Welcome to this support forum Spoonish6. As "063" said, it's okay to cry

and let your emotions out. However, you do need to seek professional

help if the depression has gotten that severe. Since you are new, we would

need to know what is happening in your life right now to cause you feeling

that you are being held hostage by depression. Stay safe.

I’ve taken Zoloft for the last 5-6 years and it’s helped. I’ve handled my depression fine. Up until last week, I had the flu and was home in bed for most of the week, once I got better I realized my depression has crept up on me. I woke up today before work with the craziest panic attack. I need help. Bad. I just cried in the bathroom at work. I think I’m going to go to the emergency room after work to see if I can talk to someone

Spoonish, I think that is a good idea to go to the ER after work.

When mental health issues take over our lives, it's time to reach

for professional help. It may be that the Zoloft is no longer working

for you. It also could have a lot to do with you having been sick. If

you were on antibiotics, they too, could be the culprit. Good Luck

in finding some answers tonight. Let us know how you make out. xx

Sounds like a combination of Zoloft not working like you need it to and antibiotics. Being sick for a week is enough to cause me to feel depressed and crying is usually a sign my meds aren’t working. I don’t mean tearing up occasionally or being upset about something specific. Usually I find myself unable to stop crying at odd times or when everything is ok. That’s a clear sign for me that if I’m not feeling better soon I need to see the doctor.

I appreciate your reply. I’m going to head to the hospital now. Maybe there’s someone I can talk to. Also, I never too antibiotics. Just daquil, nightquil, and ibuprofen

So I ended up going to the emergency room and I got transferred to another department. I spoke with a doctor which slightly helped. He gave me contact information for another doctor that he believes can help. I’m going to call the first thing on Monday .

Go ahead cry. Crying can be therapeutic. You aren't alone. I struggle too with depression. You don't have to let those feelings take over. Tell them what to do. Don't give up. There is hope.
