Hi everyone I'm new to this site, I thought I would join up because I really don't have anyone to talk to that can offer unbiased advice to me as they don't personally know me. I was told by my doctor ages ago to join a forum but have only just got around to it.
Basically last year I hit an all time low, I had been dealing with depression since as long as I can remember but last summer I was officially diagnosed by my doctor and was put on fluoxetine. Now almost a year later I am still on this medication. I find that it definitely helps, I'm the most stable I've ever been and the only side effect I've ever had from this drug is the fatigue.
However, I can feel all the feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness and self loathing creeping back. I am lacking motivation more and more everyday and my college work is suffering, sometimes I feel too low to attend classes so I often skip them. It's starting to get me into trouble but the teachers don't seem to understand that this is a real issue for me. I've had these feelings and much worse before (I have attempted suicide in the past) and it is a very very dark place, I'm terrified of going back. I am also on the waiting list for CBT and have been since last year. Does anyone have any advice? Would be nice to have someone different to talk to about this. Thanks x
