Hi guys, I posted a couple of weeks back after being recently diagnosed and staring a course of prozac.
I'm happy to say that it seems to be finally working and i am slowly starting to feel like myelf again.
My emotions are now under control, no suicidal thoughts or self-harming inclinations, my mental faculties
are returning and although sometimes i digress, i am alot more optimistic and better at dealing with
situations that previously would have upset me.

Although i know i'm knowhere near 'better', I guess i wanted to post this just to show for people just
starting meds and wondering if there going to work, or thinking about not taking them that they can
and will work and that you have to stick with it. I know when your down you can't imagine how you
can feel 'normal' again, but it is possible and it will happen if you keep trying.

jimi :-)

Welcome, jimi,

I hope you will find the comfort and care here as a lot of us have. It's the best site and everyone is wonderful. Read the posts from back a few weeks and lean a lot. Look for a lot of support.

Welcome billy,

Please contact your doctor and talk to him about that. You shouldn't be feeling any worse than you were.

Let us know what happens.

Blessings!
