I've been severely depressed for a long time now and recently just started taking celexa for this and it sort of seems to be helping but the depression is still stronger than ever. However the one thing that's driving me over the edge and making me extremely suicidal is its effects on my speech. I'm not even sure if that's what's even causing my speech problems but I find that speaking is extremely difficult for me almost like as if I have no fuel to speak or the act of speaking is almost impossible and it seems like my speech center in my brain is damaged even though I've had an MRI and nothing was found.
The best way to describe this is that I know what I want to say but saying it is almost impossible and when I do get it out it seems like my brain doesn't want to cooperate. Long sentences are almost impossible All I can get out is one one word answers. It's extremely frustrating and causing me to have serious suicidal ideations.
The depression I can maybe tolerate but the speech problems is what's driving me over the edge.
I don't know if this can be caused by depression or anxiety or even lack of dopamine etc but this doesn't seem like a common problem with depression.
Please offer insights!!!! Thanks.
