I'm sorry that you are struggling right now, it does happen to all of us at times when stress is higher in our lives. Keep discussing options with your doctor and keep posting and reading here, you will get through this rough patch and get to the place where you feel better. Keep using your positive self talk, that always works best for me, and hang in there, this too shall pass!
Just remember this Machelle, even though you have a set back, it does not mean that you are starting all over again with your recovery. It's simply a set back and you will get back up from it. My therapist is always telling me this, as well as telling me to take things a day at a time, when I have a set back and I've had several, especially with the meds. But he is confident that I will get through it and continue to grow.
I believe the same will happen for you. Get your meds straightened out, try to take care of your recent stressors and slow down a bit during the holiday madness and take it all one day at a time. You will get through this - just be as confident in yourself as possible.
Keep letting us know how you're doing. Don't forget that you can come and vent any time you need to - I know I have!

A slip of the foot you may soon recover, but a slip of the tongue you may never get over.
I am so glad to hear you are on the Lexapro and that it is working better for you. I am sorry I have been missing lately, but I am back now and I will be watching for your posts.
