I keep going through various phases of "OK, I think I can beat this depression" to "Everything is terrible, what's the point of living, I'm never gonna be back to where i was." Right now I'm stuck in the same rut again and it's hard for me to see a chance of regaining my optimism. I'm still waiting for my zoloft to do something, to at least help me. It feels like I'm the only thing that's going to be able to pull me out of this and its very very hard.

Any ideas on how to ignore my negative thoughts and focus on the positvives?

How long have you been on the zoloft? It takes four to six weeks to work. So if you haven't been on it long, have patience. Things could get better for you.

Keep posting, it helps. Writing things down is therapeudic. Not feeling too good today, hopefully somebody else will come along with some answers for you. Life can be good.

Hugs, Karen

I really fight the thoughts of 'lifes not worth living', and I do this as soon as I become aware that I am thinking it. Once this thought pattern has a hold in my head, it is locked in for a very long time, and then the 'fight' is unbelievably hard. Not to mention, very dangerous.

So, try and fight that thought patter as soon as you become aware of it, I tell myself, that thought is not an option, and I really dig my heals in.

Good luck
Karen, (((((HUG))))))  Let it be, be still, stay strong, this too shall pass, I promise you, xx

I'll have been on the Zoloft for six weeks this Thursday. I'm hoping it will at least help a little bit, I understand it won't solve all of my problems but I need something. I feel like i've lost myself and my touch with reality. I know I'm not crazy but holy hell I feel like I am.

>Karen, I hope your day has gotten better.
