As I've previously posted, I am bipolar and in March suffered anxiety that basically put me out of my mind - I was hospitalized for seven days. After I'd been home two weeks, still suffering terrible anxiety, doc gave me Zyprexa which knocked out the anxiety within two hours. I now only have to take 5 or 10 mg once a week which keeps my anxiety at bay but prevents some of the side effects, like uncontrollable hunger. I get enough of that from the Depakote. I also take Lamictal and Lexapro.
Since my recovery from anxiety, I find that I have no ambition in life or work, none of the joy in life or work I used to have. Although I am taking an antidepressant already, maybe I need more or different.
Do you think this lack of joy and difficulty facing the day is still depression?
I just want the joy back.
