    HI there Elise

    I've just read your post

    You must have been to Dr's by now..

    Did they prescribe you anything?

    I have been on many antidepressants the key is getting the right one for you.

    It took me years to get the right ones for me everyone's different.

    If you have been prescribed anything take it easy they may have a few side affects but they go in a couple of weeks.

    Maybe let me know how you got on??

    Take care
