Pixydust - I just started taking the Zoloft, and my doc said it would take 2-6 weeks to see any noticeable effects. So I can't really comment on it now, but I'll write a post if I see a difference. I was scared to take it, too, but the stress/anxiety/depression caused by this disease just became too much to bear. I have a toddler son, and I just can't afford to be pissy all the time. Its not fair to him or my husband... or myself. ;-) If you're suffering that much, you should really give some new meds a chance. That's no way to live your life. You deserve to be happy!
Daniella - Thanks for the good vibes! I appreciate the support! ;-)
Peety - I haven't heard of SLO-FE, but I'll definitely look into it. So far (after two days) the iron tablets haven't caused any stomach upset, but if they do I'll keep your recommendation in mind. And thanks for the well wishes!!
