Positive

Guys and gals , I had my last meltdown in 2007 , stress cultivated in total insomnia , etc etc , anxiety overload.

I just wanted to share that after 14 yes of Prozac , in 2013 I paid to visit a pyschiatrist , 3 sessions , she swapped me to 100 mg sertraline , and it is amazing.plus zolpidem instead of zopiclone.

I hate to say this but in 2008 I recall a conversation with an NHS gp , where I was advised to stop researching Google and trust them, after I suggested other SSRIs and the potential use of ambien. I also recall one Go picking up his hand book and looking up the depression page....

Another told me to pull myself together and get on with things , after literally total insomnia.

Yet another GP said if she prescribed me anything to help me sleep it would be on my record permanently , like a threat....

Well folks I'm here to say that you should not trust the NHS with regard to mental health , they offered me confusion and 14 years of unnecessary symptoms , plus disdain.

I now have 2 children , marriage , a house we own and a well paid job, company car and a hunger for life.

Don't let yourself be misled by uneducated Muppets. If you can scrape together the cash then head for a private psychiatrist.

Much love
