Welcome to the depression forum. You have definately came to a good place. There are a lot of caring and understanding members here, I think you will be glad that you came.
Yes writing things down does help a lot. I find the forum really helps me, because I feel like everybody understands. So I am so happy that you dropped in.
It can take up to faour to six weeks for your antidepressant to get the full effect. So be patient. You didn't mention what the doctor gave you. What kind of antidepressant I mean. So don't give up just yet.
Keep posting, we are here for you. I am sure that other members will come along with their opinions and advice.
Have a great day,
