I am going to call you Peace because that is what we will strive for. Welcome to HealingWell. I believe that you are going to find this a very helpful place to come. We will help you with our experiences and as much advice as we can.
First of all ...relax. Let's put the past behind us and start with a clean slate. You know that you are showing your anger and can't control it, that is a start. A lot of people can't see that far when they are depressed. So now that you know what the problem is, let's work on stopping it. When you feel yourself getting out of control, you should try some breathing exercises. Slow deep breathing, in through the nose and out through the mouth. It is called smelling the roses and blowing out the candles. That will calm you down enough to catch your behavior before it starts. Know that this is something that you haven't been able to control, but you are going to get a grip on it.
Prozac can take four to six weeks before you feel it's full effects. So give it a chance. I think that your moods are a part of the depression and they will gradually change with the use of the medication and your thinking process.
Try to stay in the now. Don't beat yourself up for what has happened in the past. And try not to worry about
the future. Only think about
the moment at hand.
Most of all, keep coming here. There are a lot of wonderful members who have been through the same as you. And they are so kind and compassionate. They will listen and help you in any way that they can.
And love yourself. That is so important. I know things feel helpless and hopeless, but they aren't. This is the depression causing you to feel this way. You are a wonderful person and you should treat yourself that way.
Keep on keeping on. We are here for you.
