Hi thank you for replying. I cant really pinpoint what went wrong, there was a co-worker that I really got along with that left in September, but I knew that person was leaving as early as mid-August, and wasnt depressed then. My first depression was from a family matter, nothing from work seemed to enter into it. As I said in my post I went back to work Oct. 14, and everything was fine at home and at work, until about
Nov. 13-14. That same week is when I found they were bringing in a new staff member, and that our office manager was going to be off for 2 months starting Nov. 28 for surgery. That weekend I began to worry, and by Monday was very depressed. I was able to function at work, but my stomach hurt all week, I had panic attacks, and havent slept well since. I can fall to sleep, but wake early every morning worrying about
work, and full of dread. I admit I was worried about
the manager being gone that long, that I would have to handle more duties, and that the new worker would be someone hard to get along with (that turned out to be wrong, he is very nice and very competent). I have helped train him and that has gone well. I became so depressed my wife took me to the doctor Nov. 19, and I didnt return to work until last Monday. Im not doing anything different at work than I was doing a year ago, but now I am so down I just keep wishing I had never taken on the new position, and of course I cant go back to my old job now. Im driving my wife nuts, and my daughter knows somethings wrong as well. I just want to feel normal again. I am seeing a counselor weekly. This sadness and anxiety is killing me. Besides Prozac, I also take Klonopin 3 times a day, and Trazodone at bedtime. My doctor says it will take a while to get the Wellbutrin out of my system, and of course a few weeks for the Prozac to kick in.
