    Hi Omeara,

    I know exactly how you feel. I was exactly like that last October and November. It too about a good 6 weeks for the medication to fully kick in. I was in a terrible state, did not think I would feel normal again. Believe me you will feel like this forever. Hold on there. Its hard, but things will be fine.

    Good luck

      Thanks For your reply 😃 I keep having good days and bad days, was your depression bad? I had a wobble last night, thinking about death and suicide even tho I would never ever do that, don't no what happened to me something just took over my brain it scared me, I will give it to the 8 week mark and it I am still no better I will go and see my gp, don't really want to increase my meds as already on 100mg so will ask for a mood stabiliser or another anti d, I have come along way to what I was 3 weeks ago tho I was the lowest of the low, so pleased u feel better x

      Ash,

      I know exactly how you feel. I remember that when I was at my lowest ebb I did not want to wake up in the morning. I am sure they will subside and you will feel normal. I had good and bad days with my depression.

      Good luck

    Hi Omeara, I too understand what you are experiencing and it is awful.  I tend to sleep a lot to avoid thinking.  I switched my antidepressant recently because the other one, which had worked beautifully, was suddenly no longer working.  

    So you have a fear of dying?  Are you unable to do certain activities due to this fear?  When I was younger, I had the occasional fear of dying, but pushed it out of my mind by remembering that once I am dead, I will feel nothing.  Then I worried at times about the way in which I would die and decided that no matter the way, my body most likely could cause me to black out during the worst of it.

    However, I have spent more time wanting to die than the fear of it.  Depression is a beast that grips me tightly at times.

    I hope this lets up soon for you.  It WILL let up, thankfully.

    Hugs
