Hi - I am wondering if any of you can try to explain to me what it feels like when you are coming out of a mde - like is it baby steps of feeling better - wanting to do more things - etc.  Is it kind of a progression?

I think it depends what kind of medication it is and whether you need it or not. Some medications are really hard to come off of and some are easy.

What are you taking and why do you want to come off of it? Either way, do it with the help of your doctor. Many meds you have to wean off of slowly. Please do use caution with this.

I am concerned about this.

thisbites,

Good Morning.  Perhaps if you share  with us which med you want to come off of it would help the members to know exactly how to respond to your question.

Thank you

Kitt

Sorry - I didn't mean coming off meds but coming out of the dark place so to speak. Last night I saw my xdbf at a concert and he smiled and waved and when I was watching him talk to a former classmate his face had expression and he looked relaxed. I saw him again at the end of the night and we had a hug and visited for a bit and he sounded so much like his old self which I was happy for- he just seemed to be smiling for "real" if you know what I mean. I don't know if he is finally on meds or what but he just seems better. I hadn't seen him other than once a couple weeks ago when I stopped by his house quickly and dropped some brownies off. I had been sending him a text, e-mail, etc. occasionally to lend support all these months but upon advice from this board I sent my last one last week saying I wasn't going to bug him anymore but if he ever wanted a sober person that cares a lot about him to do something with to just holler and told him to take care and that I really did wish the best for him. In my opinion he was in a mde when he was at my house last August and things had already been way worse than usual since that May. I'm hoping he is on the upswing and just wondering if there is kind of a progression as far as that goes . I guess I am wondering too, if he ever realized or ever will that I was not the cause of his unhapiness like he thought???

I guess I thought you meant meds. What is an mde? I don't know what it means.

It sounds like he is doing better. I don't know if that means that he will contact you or not if that is what you are wondering. Maybe he doesn't have plans for you in his future. Which is really his choice, and doesn't mean that there is anything wrong with you. And you didn't cause his depression either. He may have been depressed when he was around you, but you didn't cause it. That isn't how it happens.

I hope that things work out for you and that you are happy.

Best wishes to you for a lovely day.

They refer to major depressive episodes as MDEs on a different site.
