Are their ladies out there who are seriously depressed and going through menopause/perimenopause?
Im almost thinking at this point that it may not be 100% hormonal. Im thinking I may have just fallen into depression given my lifes stressors right now,
Are there people who are finding relief with a good antidepressant? ive tried a few very briefly but did not like at all.
I may have not given them enough time, but Im open to them if they at least get me out of this.
I have moments where im feeling ok..and it lasts maybe 4-6 hrs
then i'm down into the depression again. No joy, absolutely no zest or love for life. What in the hell happened?
I am doing as much research as I possibly can. Im studying about nutritional therapy and epigentetics which seems to be the way the health care is going..instead of sick care..
Im using bio identical hormones, seeing an awesome clinical social worker, meditations and affirmations, knowing that my thoughts create my emotions etc. Eating fairly well with limited resources to eat super healthy..
I have never been depressed like this before in my life and im 53. Ive been down and had sadness etc. all of which i bounce back out of in no time.
This is a very no bueno place to be. Dark dark dark.
I can not role model this for my boys. I feel helpless.
Anybody have a magic bullet? My doc suggested a few things, but he thought that Effexor might be suitable for me.
How do we even know whats good to take? Zoloft and Lexapro didn't do well.
