Hi Jenny,

I can relate to what you are saying.  I will be having a good time, or just being happy and I get this dark feeling coming over me like I am doing something wrong, or like something bad is going to happen.  I think that it is a form of anxiety or panic.  We just aren't use to being happy and we aren't use to feeling good.  I just try and put that thought or feeling out of my head.  Sometimes it is hard but sometimes it isn't.  Just keep practicing to push that bad feeling away.

Fatigue goes along with the depression.  Also the irritation goes along with it.  But it sounds like you are recognizing it early and that makes it easier to change the moods.  Try to relax, and continue getting out.  It is a good thing that you are working.  You can keep your mind busy that way.  I think with you catching this early you can get help faster.  Maybe you need a different antidepressant.  Sometimes it takes a long time to find the one that is right for you.

Keep trying like you have been doing.  Feel free to write any time.  We will help you however we can.  There is always somebody around who will talk to you when you need.

hugs,

Karen

Jenny it might be sometning as simple as a dose increase.  Being that you feel bad when you stop, I am sure you need the medication.  I would let the dr. know that after a while they don't seem to be working and the dr. should adjust your dosage.  I guess we have to realize that not every day is going to be good, but we should have more good days than bad. 

Try to keep a positive additude.  You sound like the type of person that can do that.  I think if you talk to the doc that you will end up doing well.  In the meantime keep posting, we are here for you.  Do you have any special interests or hobbies, that helps a lot.  Though I know when you are working that it is hard to find the time.

Good luck, and keep us posted.
