Free from depression after 7.5 months on citalopram and 14 weeks' CBT :)

Posted , 6 users are following.

One of the things I came on this site hoping to see when I joined was good news stories about people being treated for depression and/or anxiety as I suffered from both. . . so here's mine! 

 For the last 2.5 months or so, I have felt happy, relaxed, free from panic, with practically zero anxiety and free from any negative thoughts whatsoever.  . . It's fantastic!! 

I guess it's good to remind myself of how far I have come. I plan to come off the medication in the next few months but for now I am just happy to have come so far. 

So be patient and have hope those who are just starting!! Don't forget about therapy though! I believe it was an essential element of my recovery and an invaluable tool for ensuring permanency in my stable and happy condition!!  cheesygrin

Goodluck and peace out to all!!!
