New girl blues

Hello all, I am new to this forum scene, I have joined because I have depression but my support network struggle to understand it. I am lucky to have people around me who really care but I feel very isolated sometimes because they just can't understand this wholly engulfing disgusting illness which I wish every time it reappears would just leave me alone. I have just increased my sertraline dose from 150-200mgs and I am hoping to feel better soon. Does anyone have any advice about sertraline? Or, does anyone feel as pi$$@d off as I do at this monster?

Hi I am sorry to hear that you are feeling the way you are, I have anxiety and I sometimes feel like that. And with the sertraline if it don't help then I would go down to 50MG as that's what I am on and it helps but I have a few very hard weeks and still am at the moment, but yes not everyone understands, but I do as I know where your coming from. If you want to talk message me x

Hello, sorry, perhaps my post wasn't that clear, I started on 50mgs sertraline earlier this year, I have just increased it to 200mgs, 3 days ago, if you are feeling crappy still, perhaps you should think about going up? It's so hard sometimes, I have two littleones also, it is sometimes really tough but thanks for your reply 🙂
