People who have come out the other side

Posted , 2 users are following.

I am now in the end of my twenties and suffering my third bout of depression/anxiety in 6 years. Life is currently good and has been for the last couple of years, so to be cast into a state of severe depression and anxiety has been incredibly scary. After breaking down in the doctors and declaring i could not cope any more, i have been told to continue taking the Citalopram i have taken for the past couple of years (although i have been very laxed with taking pills over the last month). I am also taking 5mg of diazepam 3 times a day. I am now just about coping, however the days are horrible and i can't face work. Some hours i can smile, some hours i just cry. I have been in this position before, and after time have got through these horrific feelings, however this is little comfort at the moment.

I would be really keen to hear any words of support or encouragement or words from people who have suffered severely like i have in the past.

All the best

    It sounds like you are depressed and maybe on the wrong meds. So try reviewing your medication with the Dr and see if you need to change it.
