I to want to welcome you to the forum. As you can see there are so many great people on here with great advice.
I am sure you will find the support you are looking for.
You have taken one of the biggest steps in healing,going to the doctor and telling them what is going on.
I am sure they told you this,but it does take 4-6 weeks for the meds to take full effect. It will be a hard 4-6 weeks too. It is very frustrating as I know you just want to feel better.
It is not easy to learn to like yourself again. That is something that does not usually happen overnight. You have to give it time and really work on what actually triggered the depression in the first place.
I too have been living with depression most of my life (I am 37) and am just getting to the point to where I can wake up and not hate myself.
Stay strong and keep us posted.
