Just wanted to know if anyone has had good or bad experiences with anti-meds??? I have had boughts of depression all my life that i can remember but this time im finding life pretty difficult I went through a traumatic experience where my life was almost taken about 6 months ago. Im not sure if I will be myself again and am considering medication. I am seeking phycological therepy but cant see that this will help rid me of this depressed state that comes over me now and again. My head is always fuzzy and find it difficult to take in conversations and meetings are awful as i start to panic with evryone talking and I dont seem to take it in but I have no other option but to work full-time to support myself and my daughter to give us some type of future to look forward too. Last time I took a lexapro (just 1 anti-depressant) i seem to have gone a bit loopy for nearly 2 weeks where i felt paranoid anxious and out of my mind (something I have never felt before and Im not sure if it was a breakdown i went through) but this has scared me and made me anxious from trying meds again and i just hope and hope that I can get through this on my own and telling myself that im strong enough to get past this with out meds but im finding it to hard.
I look like an normal 29 year old mum that works and cares for her daughter and nobody would probably know what im going through apart from being pretty quiet sometimes.
My daughter is the only thing that gives me stength sometimes.
If anyone can relate me and has any advise on medication i would love to hear from you.
