Misdiagnosed over a year ago.  For one year took med after med after med that was not right.  Finally after having a severe allergic reaction to a med I should never have been on, I found another Doc that really took the time to listen and figure out my problem.  Being a stupidly optimistic person, I never gave up.  I never will until I get "me" back again.  I have major depressive disorder and high anxiety.  Was just put on Celexa, so I will give it time to work and hope that it is the right one for me.  My depression manifest itself in all over body aches, unable to remember or concentrate, headaches, not wanting to eat and can not sleep.  But everyday I wake up and hope that today is the day that the fog will lift and I will be a happy person again.

Hi Gem,

I've got a lot of drug allergies myself, and I know how it is to have severe reactions and be oh-so-sick! You have my sympathies. You're right - you should never give up! Keep working on things and moving forward as well as you can. There is ALWAYS HOPE.

Hi Gem,

Welcome to the HealingWell depression forum. I am glad that you have joined us. I am sorry that you were misdiagnosed and was treated with the wrong medication. That must have been awful. I am glad though that you have found out what your dx is and now you are being treated properly for it. Try to keep in mind though that sometimes it takes a while before you find what is right for you. I hope that it comes with the first try.

Keep posting and remember that we understand what you are going through and are here for you.

Hugs, Karen

Thanks for the warm welcome!  I am lucky enough to have a very supportive husband but I feel it is not good to overwhelm him all the time with my issues.  I knew I needed somewhere to go to vent, to offer help to others and get the support I need from people who are standing in my shoes.
Again, thanks for all the well wishes.
