I've had a really bad time with symptoms of seasonal affective disorder for the last 6 years, for which I didn't seek help until this past January. I was also diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder this past week, which is the main concern by far in these summer months. I have been very opposed to medications that "mess with your mind" for a long time, but finally caved today, my therapist called my GP and she put me on Prozac. I'm really hoping that this was the right thing to do and that it will help me face the scary reality of going off to college in the fall, but I've had friends who have gotten messed up from antidepressants and I'm so scared that I'm messing up my life and doing the wrong thing and this medication will change who I am and worsen my anxiety... so I guess I'm just looking for some support and reassurance as I start this scary process! Or affirmation from any anxiety-sufferers that have done well on Prozac?
thanks for anything you can say
