    This is the place to off load, so absolutely go ahead ... nobody minds one bit.  We all need to do the same at times.

    I know exactly where you're coming from ....... I used to be Mrs weepy, Mrs angry, Mrs wtf, Mrs everything!  Now I'm Mrs happy, Mrs grateful for everything in life and Mrs yeeeeeeee-ha!  Soon you will be too ......Mr that is, not Mrs :-)

    Day 52 and you are so nearly turning that corner of feeling that happy warm feeling.  When it comes it'll visit you for an hour or so then disappear.  But just wait as it'll come back.  Each time it'll stay longer and longer until it moves in and lives with you always.  This can take a few months of ups and downs and the ups will get longer and longer.

    Keep going, you're doing grand.  biggrin

    K xx

      I also felt like I was in a bubble.  I used to look at people at think why wasn't I able to be like them, why me, what had I done to deserve this.  I had no reason to be ill either, but think some of us don't cope with emotions and stress very well and mixed with brain chemicals it just happens.

      Depression attacks anyone regardless of age, sex, race, wealth ....... it's not choosy.

      You will recover on this medication.  Just persevere and the results will happen. xx

      My children were small when I had this, so know what you mean.  It's very difficult for anyone to understand what we go through and they expect us to get better as if we had a cold.  If only it were that simple.  It's not that we're a bit flat, fed up ...... that's how most people view depression.  We can't go on holiday and come back all refreshed .... we take it with us and bring the dam thing back with us too.

      People don't understand that this is an illness, and it's debilitating.  Ok it's not life threatening, but it takes our life away in other ways ... depression steals our soul and leaves us an empty shell of our former selves.  It's often not talked about and when we do people just dismiss it, expect us to either pull ourselves together or take a magic pill and be better in a few weeks.  Yes .... and so do we!!

      Continue on this medication ..... just persevere through everything, and you'll come out the other side.

      I took fluoxetine initially then had my meds changed to Citralopram which I'm taking now.  I know many recover on fluoxetine too - each SSRI suits different people.

      My son has taken fluoxetine for 4 months now after he had a melt down, and is nearly back to his usual self.  He couldn't work for 4 months and has just returned to work.  He went through hell on this medication too and it's great to see him back.

      i had depression years ago and Citralopram helped me recover, and only stopped my meds last year, but restarted them this year because I needed to be well to help my son as could feel the stress taking it's toll on me.

      So yes, we're both on different meds, but they're both SSRI's which give the same side effects etc and the same outcome.

      Glad ur son is feeling better smile 

      I tried CIT after my son for pnd but I was crazy on it so yes we all react differently. Serterline gave me great results in little time too but I tried to go back in it and was really ill so I was put on flu. The only thing that worries me is that the dream / spaced out is the meds and won't ever go away whilst taking them or that it is from the illness and the meds arnt cutting it. I also feel shakey with moments of depression but only last a hr. Thank you for ur kind words x

      I also took Seroxat once too but that I felt really angry on it all the time, so found Citralopram was the one that suited me.  Yes all SSRI's suit different people, and it's often trial and error finding the one for you.  They all give the same side effects though.

      ​The spaced out feeling will go away and the shakey feeling too.  xx

      I always say the same ...... would rather be poor and happy.  Wouldn't wish this illness on my worst enemy.

      Yes the leaflet is a bit naughty giving false hope, though some do feel the benefit after a few weeks ..... the majority of us though it's more like 2 months plus, not 2 weeks.

      I did see I difference quickly but it soon dipped up and down. I'm a bit nasty I like to think I'd like people to feel it for just one day just so they stop the stigma and silly comments of pull yourself together. But I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Nevee . UV given me hope thank you. Just hope I feel OK for when my baby is here in 2weeks time

      Actually you're right - it wouldn't hurt people to experience a bit of this :-)

      Ooh a Christmas baby!  Well, nearly.  A New Year one then - how exciting!
