After a relationship break up 3 months ago I've slowly slipped in to a severe depression.
I wake up feeling beyond low and filled with dispair and spend most mornings crying for 2-3 hours.
I have no motivation to do anything and have to force myself to do simple tasks.
I'm still dealing with the heartbreak from the relationship ending but on top of this no find no joy or even relief in anything I do.
Everything reminds me of my ex and our time together and it's debilitating, I'm avoiding simple things like going to the shops or taking a walk as I just feel so sad and the thoughts won't go away.
I have never felt this low in my life.
I was prescribed sertraline last month but after 2 attempts to take it gave up after 2 days each time as the side effects were so bad And I have a young child to look after and even the sound of someone's voice was hurting my brain, I felt so spaced out I couldn't get off the couch and was shaking non stop.
I went back to my gp and have been given citalopram on a low dose of 10mg I've taken it for 2 days so far and have had no noticeable side effects which I'm happy about.
I guess I'm just looking for some support and for someone to tell me that this feeling will get better and the antidepressants will help as I'm not sure how much longer I can go on feeling this way.
