I am so tired of talking about feeling bad and unmotivated and having symptoms jump from just sad to migraines to aches and pains. I have been on Lexapro for 6 months and added seroquil to it at some point. I think the meds helped for a while but made me so sleepy and gain weight. I was glad to get a little weight back after having lost 40 pounds when this thing started. I had gone through spine surgery which went really well but left me physically healed from surgery but completely and totally helpless with my racing thoughts and panic attacks. I since have had panic attacks at least once a week. Every now and then I wake up one morning without all the aches and pains and think I feel good, almost too good. Every time I have hope but in just a day or two or maybe mid afternoon the gloom and sad are back. I have been off all medication for about 3 weeks and thought I was going to be fine but low and behold all my previous symptoms are coming back. I think they are worse this time. I hate to admit that I have started abusing alcohol badly. I have become socially withdrawn again. I used to have cookouts at my house every weekend and now I close the gates and hide in the house. To top it all off, my wife has gone through menopause and is some what depressed too. She has lost interest in sex and seems to be as low as I am. I wish I could help her but I am not in a state to be able too. I have said enough for now. Anyone else with just one thing after another until completely bogged down and not knowing where to begin... Again
