Hi everyone hope all is well and good with everyone!I'm doing ok I was supposed to go to my first support group this morning but I slept in due to the new dose of seroquel I take so I guess i'll start next week. I'm kinda bummed about it cause I was really looking foward to it. I'm so tired of being depressed it's driving me crazy I wish like i'm sure we all do that there was some sort of switch or you could just snap your fingers and it would be gone. I'm trying to stay strong and fight my way through but it does get hard sometimes. I've been trying to find ways to keep my mind busy and to change my thought patterns which does help even tho sometimes i just want to crawl back into bed and cover my head and hide from the whole world. I really try to get out of the house a couple times a day and do things I don't want to do so that I don't isolate. I'm very bad at isolating but i'm overcoming it slowly. Anyway thanks for listening to me ramble once again....April

You have started this med, now is the hardest part, which is waiting for the med to kick in. Just take it one day at a time, and things will get better.

Nanners is so right! Give it time and go easy on yourself!

I just read in a book that a psychiatrist said, "it's impossible to be depressed when you're active."

Make sure you're busy. Not crazy busy, but the usual daily things. Also, get outside. Listen to the birds, watch the neighbors. Maybe take some pics in a park. You need to find things to do to keep your mind off of yourself. Let us know how you're feeling!
