New Here

Hi Im jackie and thought I would join this forum as I feel so alone in my battle with depression at the moment, Im currently taking Diazepam, propanolol and doctors put me on Mirtazapine but just stopped them due to suicide ideation and now on Fluoxetine on my 3rd day I guess what Im hoping for is some light at the end of the this dark dark tunnel. Life hasnt been an easy journey but I was always the strong one, now I don't feel strong anymore.

  • Hi Ali

    Thank you it does help when you realise you are not on your own . I've now got a good psychiatric team in place I'm on Californian rocket fuel now which is a double whammy of 2 antidepressants weaning myself off diazepam and propranolol. But some days the overwhelming feeling of just wanting to disappear takes such a lot to control. Nearly a year and very small baby steps. Had to give up my job. Life sucks but we keep on going
