This is my first time ever on a message board.
My doctor has been mentioning depression for a couple of years now, in December I finally went in crying, ready for help. She gave me a sample and perscription for zoloft.
I started taking it but did not tell my husband until three weeks later. We had been in counseling for almost a year,
he has a temper, I hold everything in to try to keep him calm and happy. I have spent 15 years trying to make sure he was happy, and have neglected myself. No physical abuse here, just me growing up and him not.
Anyways, one day he told me what a miserable person I have been, so I told him about my doctor visit and that I am taking Zoloft and trying to get better. He did not even know what zoloft was!!!! Now, he says that he does not like me taking it, that our society can just pop a pill to make everything better.
Also, oh boy, I have absolutely NO desire for sex anymore, which makes things worse for him.
I lost five pounds my first month on zoloft, but now I am gaining!!!! And I have no willpower to try to stop gaining.
Does anyone understand???
