Janetlee, I don't know anything about
changing meds cuz I've been on just the xanax since nothing else works for me, for many years now. But I just wanted to say, I'll be praying with you for wisdom on what to do or wisdom for your Dr. to know what to do. I feel like I've been pressed against a wall with nothing left to turn to but faith for a while now. I wanted to "bail" too, but of course would never do that, and for the same reasons you mentioned. It hurts to many others and it's just morally wrong in my beliefs also. So all I can offer you is my empathy and prayers and know that sometimes we are pressed in like this sometimes for just that reason, to increase our faith. To show us Who really Is There for us - in the long haul.
I fight depression by being "others minded". That is what I was taught and I found it is the greatest way in the world. When I was physically not sick, I loved volunteer work.
It's important to talk with people who bring you up and boost your faith, rather than freak if you tell them you're depressed. I found that out the hard way too. If you have a good friend who understands you, that's worth all the riches in the world. They always know what to say and when. I hope you have a buddy like that, that you can call and be uplifted by.
I love laughing too. I think that is another saving grace.
Well, I've talked your ear off enough.
Don't give up hope and others will be by with a positive word for you and any experience they can share.
You're in my prayers and hugs from the heart.
