Desperate need of encouragement

Posted , 3 users are following.

This is my first time posting so please bear with me. I have been on fluoxetine for many years for depression and anxiety. A few years ago I tried to come off them because 'I was better' and I was in an anxiety hole for about a week. About 2 months again I stupidly tried to come off them to have a baby. Since last week the anxiety has hit me like a tonne of bricks. I'm a mess. I have been taking my tablets again for 7 days but still don't feel any better. Because I recovered much sooner after the last episode I'm scared that I will never get better again. Can anyone offer any similar experiences or encouraging words?
