So here is my story. about 3 months ago me and my girlfriend of 4 years broke up. I was the one who initiated the breakup, but after talking it out with her it kinda became mutual. about 2 weeks after the breakup (maybe sooner) I started to learn that she had been doing some pretty bad things (sexually, emotionally, physically). Since I learned this I have been having severe episodes of depression. Things have gone better lately for her (as far as I know), so I havent had as much trouble, but I still have many episodes. But I had multiple nights where I would just spend the entire night throwing up because of what I learned.
For about 2 more weeks I was having alot of stomach problems. I constantly felt sick and usually felt like I was going to vomit even though I never would. I went to the doctor and we talked about all that was going on. He actually did a CT scan of my stomach and other organs down there to see if anything was going on. So this led to the conclusion that the depressive state I am/was in was the cause of the problem. He put me on 150mg of Wellbutrin XL per day. This helped the stomach problems greatly, but I still had many issues within my head. I was bumped up to 300mg about 2 weeks ago (everything I am talking about seems to be in 2s), but didnt stay on that very long. I was constantly getting dizzy and sick to my stomach. All the time I felt light-headed. So my doc decided to move back to 150mg of the XL and put me on 75mg of the regular Wellbutrin. I am also seeing a counselor. I have been to 2 sessions and have my 3rd on Thursday.
While everything has been little help here and there I still find myself having lots of trouble getting motivated to do stuff. Even the simplest of tasks seem impossible to me. Is there anything I can read or do that might help me with this? I am willing to learn as much as I can, but I get very frustrated with all the junk that is one the internet when I search. I am always looking for new people to talk to (I am very friendly, but recently have trouble talking to people). I get very lonely and feel so isolated sometimes. Any help or information yall can give me would be greatly appreciated.

I am glad that posting has helped. Congrats on your new fish tank. I have a beta fish so not to much work there except keeping my cat Normandy away from the fish bowl. I hope to see you around the forum again.....
