    I don't know how old you are Tammi but women of a certain age 48+ have the menopause to deal with and the worse symptom of  that is brain fog, but be assured it will get better. Its normal to miss your mom but if you are going through the menopause too, everything will seem worse.

    hi Tammi, just seen ur post, ive been prescribed sertraline for a few months, maybe upto 6, they took a while to settle in, i've just turned 40, so they may react sooner with yourself,

    whats important you ensure to take them daily and not miss any, as i had trouble focusing when i had not taken them,

    4 days in regurly taking sertraline, just got home, n this is a reminderr to myself i needs to take mine today,

    hope things clear up for you, and ur 2016 becomes bright,
