Hello, I just came across this site decided to sign up.  Might be nice to connect with some "like-minded" people from time to time.  I have OCD with panic attacks, which is cyclical, and at the moment I am going through a rough patch.  It lead me into depression my freshman year of college and I took a slight detour from my studies to pursue alternative treatment options in the form of alcohol and generalized debachery.  about two years ago, after losing my scholarship and financial support from my parents, I decided I had enough.  I quit everything, enrolled in therapy, and took out a student loan.  Since I have been posting excellent grades and generally doing well but my approaching  graduation date and worries of the subsequent future triggered an episode.  I am currently experimenting with SSRIs, specifically zoloft.  I am still in the adjustment period so I haven't received any benefits other than some delightful side effects.  Regardless, I am optimistic and know I will get through this in some way or another.  :-)
 
 
P.S. I am not aware of the ins-and-outs of this forum so I apologize if there were errors.
 
Thank you for your time.

Look at resources and get to know the "family" here
You prolly know it can take up to 4 to 6 wks for meds to kick in

Thank you for the quick response.  I'm still roaming around the site, trying to get a hold on things.  I should be up running soon.
