hi, i havent been on here in ages, which i guess in some respects is a good sign. I found this site when i was first diagnosed with depression altho it wasnt too long ago i had been suffering for years. it was such a great help especially as i was so confused and felt so alone, i cant thank everyone enough for being supportive and helpful.
i actually came on here today to see if anyone had posted anything about withdrawal symptoms of zoloft. not coz im comin off them but i was feeling a little dizzy before and i realised i hadnt taken them in a couple of days (ooops!). anyway ive just taken one and shall remember tomorrow!
anyway back to the reason im posting. I really hope im not out of line but i wanted to give some people some hope. i know i am not you, and cant say that we are going thru the same thing but here goes...
i was put on prozac at first which worked for a short time but soon stopped working then i was switched to zoloft 100mg which made me feel slowly a bit better.
i recently lost my friends as they couldnt cope with my moods and thought i was just a pain in the you-know-where! but good came from it. i had to learn to stand on my own two feet, i pulled myself up and began with the small things like tidying my flat, then moved onto bigger things like completing my essays (im at university). Then i looked around for any friends i had not driven away and vowed to strengthen these frienships. little by little the meds improved my moods, as did my new confidence in myself, and things got better. so much so that i have met a wonderful guy (which i never thought possible). im really not trying to make people feel bad or rub it in how im feeling good whilst others are not, and maybe some people might not like this post, so im sorry.
i just wanted to send a positive post to let people know that even in the darkest moments when it feels like life is not worth it, and things will never improve, there is light (no matter how far or small) at the end off this terrible tunnel. and what ever you believe in, believe in yourselves (coz god never gives us anything we cant handle- if u believe in god) because we are in control of our lives - even when we feel powerless.
again im sorry if i have depressed anyone further by my post - i truly am. and my thoughts and prayers are with each and everyone of you. (ps sorry for the long post).xxx

Hi Lilly,

I think it is great that you can share your story. I lets people know that there is always light at the end of the tunnel, even when it seems a long way off. Hopefully this will let you provide support to other people because (IMO) people who have shared an experience are the best at providing the support.

Im gald to hear that the meds have helped you improve and you really should remember tomorrow! lol
