Hi I am new here. I just wrote a long post about myself but I think it got deleted somehow. Anyways.... I am here cause I need to be. I need to talk with people who understand. I am 35 and I have had depression for as long as I can remember. I also have had a thyroid condition since age 11, age 23 I had it removed. I have two kids, boys, ages 14 and 8. I had post pardom each time after birth, then last October I had a miscarriage and felt fine, but slowly got sad, mad, and felt myself falling in to that dark hole. I was so glad I caught it before it got bad and swore I wouldn't let it get worse. Well it did and I had to start on Buproprion this week. I still feel a little sad during the day, but my thoughts aren't racing like they were. There is so much more, but I just basically wanted to introduce myself and I will read some posts to see what I can get from them.

Thanks,

Hey there Wishing4Happiness

I am glad you found the site also, I have only been on for about 2 weeks but already I have had tremendous help and support. So I am sure you will find the same on here.

I am so sorry the you suffered a miscarriage, I don't know the pain but I can only imagine how terrible it must be. However, it is good that you have taken positive steps to get your depression under control. It is only natural that you will feel sad, that is a natural human feeling especially after such a terrible loss. I am sure your two boys are of great comfort to you and no doubt keep you very busy and on the go.

I hope you will keep posting and that you stay well.

Hi Wishing4happiness,

Welcome to the HealingWell depression forum. You definately have come to a good place. All of the members here are so kind and compassionate.

I think that you have gotten some very good advice from Harrington. She is a wise lady. And so supportive.

Depression is an ugly beast. And it can be so overwhelming at times. I am glad that you started on buporprion, is it Welbutrin? It does take a good four to six weeks to reach it's full effect. I have taken it before and it was so good for the mind and thinking. I was sharp as a tack. Though not so much anymore, since I get fibrofog from the fibromyalgia. And getting older, lol... But I hope that this medication works for you. It should give you some energy too.

Take care, keep posting. Often the weekends are slow, but we go full force during the week.

Hugs, Karen

thank you both for your replies. I am taking the generic for Wellbutrin. It has given me a lil more energy this week and has been clearing up the rambling thoughts so I can think clearer. It said I am supposed to take two a day after the first few days, but I am not sure I want to do that because I do not want to have the tremors. It has been working well for me too. Except that at that time I am supposed to take the second one, I am feeling a lil sad and unsure of myself again. I will see how it goes in the next couple of weeks. I cant wait to get the full effect. :)

I am glad that the welbutrin is working for you. I couldn't take a high dose of it, it started to effect my sleep. But at a low dose, it worked good. I went on to effexor and then now pristiq. So I have been on a lot of different antidepressants in the past. Prozac, zoloft, buspar, serzone, just to name a few of them. But the pristiq is working marvelous for me now. I also take abilify and xanax.

I always liked welburtin because I could think really clear on it. It should just get better for you. And I hope that you don't have any side effects.

Best wishes to you.

Hugs, Karen
