I am a 51 year old woman who has been on paxl for 12 years, anti depressants for 18.
I can't speak for everyone else but each time i have weaned off of them, and i encounter multiple stressful situations,
i have a complete breakdown. I have one daughter living in L.A. who is so busy, and on Zoloft herself, she can't be of
much help. My husband is here when i need him, but otherwise clueless.
I just started back on my paxil (generic) about 5 days ago, after being off of them for 5 months. I absolutely
cannot function without them. I was suicidal 18 years ago, and within 2 weeks of being on a tri-cyclic called PAMELOR,
I was almost 50% myself again.
I am not PILL POPPER. I can only speak for myself.
I just know that the horrible depression im going thru right now is almost unbearable. I too, abb was thinking about checking into somwhere, where i could have people all around me, just taking care of me. I'm dreading tomorrow, when hubby has to go back to work and i'm all alone.
Where i live it's 114 outside right now, so that doesn't help at ALL. I'm a fresh air, outdoor person, and this heat and having to keep the house locked up and dark is killing me as well as my depression.
My back is killing me from sitting around all day, but i just can't get out it's too darn hot. I'd pass out, the way i'm feeling.
How are you feeling abb?
I am on Paxil and have been for two years now. I've tried counseling several times but the counselors are rude. We only have one center in my area and everyone who I have spoken to has gotten the same rudeness. I do try to limit what I worry about but when I'm having a relapse, everything gets to me. It can be from someone at church chewing their gum too loudly or the weather, anything.
