I have been where you are; worrier, depressed, feeling like you are the only one who feels that way... I went on Lexapro 6 years ago, I was 32 then. I wish I had been put on it when I was a teenager!!!! I would have handled life so much better. I am often way too full of pride adn thought I was handling things very well, until a day or a moment came and I snapped. Then it all came crashing down adn I realized that I wasn't handling it well at all adn I wasn't like a normal person should be. My brain was different. I thought everyone had an opinion about me and that they were judging me. The lexapro seemed to make all those absurd thoughts disappear. I will occasionally have a bout with depression, but it is only 10% what it use to be and last a few days instead of a few weeks or months. I think when you are in constant pain it can really bring you down a level. Getting good rest instead of my brain churning all night really helps. God Bless you and hope you get the same wonderful results from lexapro that I did. It took about 6 months to regain my libido. Being a healthy minded person was well worth it.
