Hi To All!!!
I am a newbie to this site, and I am so happy I found it. Finally, have folks to chat with about depression and all the harm it does. I was depressed once before about 30yrs ago, because of a severe stress incident. Then, last year,in January, another severe incident happened, and bang I was depressed again. I was put on Lexapro 10mg a day in Feb. I was already taking Elavil 25mg once a day for Sciatica and Neuropathy pain. I had to increase the Elavil to 75mg, to treat the depression. It took until about April till I felt good again. I was able to maintain my depression free life with 10mg of Lexapro and 25mg of Elavil. For some reason the depression has returned. I don't know why - stress - maybe? I worked so hard at healing and now back to square 3 ( because I am not as bad as I was last year ). Does anyone know why this happens? I remember when I planted my spring bulbs last autumn, and was thinking when they bloom in the
Spring of this year, I will be blooming too. But, alas, this hasn't happend. I know I will get better, but wonder why this has happened. Thanks to all who read this and respond.
