Hi, I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression for many years. I had 6 years success on Paxil and 6 years success on venlafaxine. 18 months ago I had a breakdown and been trying different medication and therapy but it just won’t shift. This has left me frustrated but now I am questioning if it is depression or I just have become lazy and need to push myself more! My symptoms are:
-feeling miserable constantly
-aches and pains in my back/neck and shoulders
-tired and fatigued
-weight gain due to confirm testing at night
-always frowning and look miserable when I look in the mirror
-things seem to require a lot of effort to do even the simplest tasks
-feeling flat and nothing
-future seems bleak
Does this sound like depression? I keep worrying and questioning if it is or not as this last episode has gone on so long! Im seeing pyschiatrist on Monday. I can’t work because of all the above and spend a lot of time in bed. I do push myself to do something things but it doesn’t change how I feel.
