    Bless you Megan, anxiety and depression etc are horrendous!

    Unfortunately unless you've suffered from it people find it difficult to understand the intensity of the feelings.

    The antidepressants will take a while to kick in and sometimes can make you feel worse at first, but not always.

    Which antidepressant have you been given?

      Hi Karen, 

      I feel like I am not getting anywhere it's only been a few days since it happens and I have only took two tablets, all I feel like doing is crying. One minute I am ok then when a family member starts going on at me I just break down. I am on Fluoxetine the now to see how they go.

      Sounds like you are depressed too Megan.

      Let the crying out, keeping it in will make you feel worse.

      The drug you have been given will take a while to have any effect.

      Are you feeling stressed about starting college or starting your new job?

    I had a breakdown at the dentist office yesterday!!  I'm so ashamed!!!   Stress will do that.   The best thing you can do is to keep up your Dr appts.. And take the medication.  Sometimes it needs to be tweaked.  Journal how you feel and thoughts..  Your family loves you!!   There is absolutely nothing wrong with helping yourself-- I applaud you for that.  Life can be hard- please keep talking with your therapist...  It helps!!   Best of luck in college-- stay true to yourself and you will be fine.   Don't forgot there is counseling at college if you need extra support.   When I went to college I joined group therapy and still keep in touch with a couple of them.   It's really nice to have a good support system.

    Hello megan...

    its sad that you have suffered from such a problem. Mental illness is a condition or a disease that effects our human nature in many ways such as how we behave, feel, think and our ability to do something. However, this mental ill leads to serve condition if not treated at the right time. The reasons for mental illness can be: stress, anxiety, depression, genetic, work pressure, brain injuries, by birth and poor nutrition. As you said you are about to join your college and job and you are already on antidepressants. So, you must try some other treatments:

    Treatment at home:

    Talk to your parents, friends and loved ones or whom you are comfortable with. Take their opinion and advice and spend an average time with them, take proper meal, proper sleep, exercise, prefer physical interaction rather then social or digital, do extra curriculum activities to make yourself busy, plan a outing with someone, attend family gatherings. Spending time with family and friend is the most convenient way to fight against any problem.

    Other than this you may take therapies or counsellings. At-last, medication and proper medical treatment is the only choice.

    Hope this may help you. Good luck for your future.
