Hi

I have been on antidepressants for 9 weeks next Tuesday, I don’t have the low mood, I am sleeping better and able to eat after almost six weeks of not eating.

While I feel much better than I did, I don’t seem to have a positive feeling, and I can’t say I feel like I did before like the happy me, will this improve still, before depression I didn’t worry but now I am constantly thinking about my health.

Try to just appreciate the mental difference now. That’s huge that you’re feeling better from the meds. You should be very proud of yourself!!

Thank you, yes I am I am pleased I feel a lot better, it’s just I would love to feel really happy again.

I have got to go for a ultra sound scan next Sunday, and I think that has been on my mind, not helping matters.

I think it’s great you’re now focusing on your physical health. Enjoy your mental health too! You’re doing so good! That’s awesome 👏🏼Best of luck next week. Keep us posted!! 💕

I will thank you for your help, I am 77 years young

Hi. I'm glad that you are feeling better and the antidepressants seem to be working for you. In my experience taking medication, I've found that they get rid of the negative thoughts and feelings, but a side effect is that they negate the positive and happy feelings, or rather our ability to experience those emotions. It's always a plus to be kind to yourself, or treating yourself the same as you would other people. Doing something nice for yourself. Or get involved with something you enjoy. It's there inside you, just got to bring it out

Thank you.

Yes I think you are right, I have had depression before, but I cannot remember when I got better what it was like, but I can remember when I was really better I felt good and nothing worried me.

I have to go for a ultra sound next Sunday and this has made me feel a bit anxious.

Hope all goes well

All went well bladder and kidneys working normal, emptied the bladder completely, so good results.

Thank you

It means a lot when people reply.

I am pleased I haven’t got the low mood, I just want to get back to being me again.

I have had depression before but it was so long ago I cannot remember when I came out of the depression what it was like, but I can remember feeling happy and confident.

I have had a slight problem with my bladder / kidneys so I am having a ultra sound scan next Sunday I think this has made me a bit anxious, and that probably isn’t helping me.

I had the ultra sound today on bladder and kidneys, she said no air in the bladder and kidneys and bladder are working fine, so it was a relief, just thought I would let you know.X
