Welcome to the forum. Well it sounds to me that you are on the road to wellness. You are doing all the right things, making appointments, going on meds and coming here. There is a lot of support on this forum as you will see. Everybody is here for eachother.
It will take about
four to six weeks for your medication to reach it's full effect, but in the meantime, you should start to feel better gradually. But you will get there.
Sometimes it is really hard to trust people, I am sure that there is a reason for this, you may just not be ready to
open up to others, it probably makes you feel vonerable (sp). But if you don't learn to, at least to your counselor, you may become paranoid. I did, and then I realized that I would rather be hurt once in a while by people, than live paranoid. It is a terrible feeling not to trust people. So begin with your counselor, and then maybe somebody you are close to.
I think though when we get depressed we tend to seclude ourselves from others and that is okay too. You need to work on yourself first and then gradually you will feel comfortable being around others and being yourself. Which is a wonderful person, I might add. Know that you are special and good. Don't be afraid to be who you are. And like Raniah said, don't be so hard on yourself.
We are here to support you through your healing, you are off to a good start. We will help you continue.
