Hi all, I've had a few bouts of depression in the past but this time it's really hit bad to the extent I've had to take time off work. I was on Citalopram 40mg for 2 months but it didn't seem to help, so I'm now on Mirtazapine (30mg) which has helped me to a least get a night's sleep, for the past 12 days.
I am one of these people that on paper 'has it all' and I am grateful, yet I still feel so low, despondent, numb and helpless almost all of the time. Ive tried altering my routine a bit and exercise must days, yet I just can't seem to shift. Looking for people in similar positions to chat to and compare coping mechanisms.
