You mentioned that you watch a lot of t.v. I do too. I've made myself watch only the positive, light, happy programs. I steer clear of all the cop shows, violent dramas, Dr. Phil (hahaha), anything that will bring on anxiety or depression. HGTV is one of my favourite channels. I like the funny sit coms, reality shows like Survivor, Big Brother, etc. I keep my viewing entertainment as light and enjoyable as possible. What do like to watch?
I'm starting to take Zoloft. This week actually. I was on Paxil a number of years ago, and it was a nightmare. So another SSRI is something I'm a bit nervous about taking, but I'll give it a shot. Like the others have said, keep trying different meds until you find one that works.
I'm just going to put this out there for you..... No pressure, no need to respond, unless you want to.... If you want to talk about faith, God, etc, with someone who will not force anything down your throat, just give you information, and a sensitive ear to listen - let me know. I'll give you my email address and we can talk away from the forum.
Lots of love and understanding,
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
