I brought my prescription home yesterday but can't bring myself to start taking it. Its such a huge step for me - admittting I have depression/ anxiety and actually taking medication. I feel like if I start taking Fluoxetine then I am admitting that the problem is mine - when my illness has been caused by 'chronic levels of stress at work'. I resent having to give in to a drug when the cause of my illness is someone else's responsibility. If I no longer worry so much (something the drug will help me with I understand) then I 'worry' I won't be able to continue the long fight ahead with my employer- that I'll lose focus on that. I was touched by the kindness of people's comment's on this site. Thank-you for reading this.
