hello, I've never posted on anything like this before... just looking for some help/advice?
I'm 25, have been suffering with depression on off since I was about 15 probably, but only in the last couple of months have I really started to feel it was time to do something about it. About 2 months ago I went to my doctors who threw everything at me, tried to sign me off work for two weeks, told me to self refer for therapy, and prescribed 20mg citalopram. I decided against sick leave straight away as its a new job, I enjoy it, and dont want to fall in to bad habits and find I cant go back? I am doing CBT group therapy for mood management... not sure on that yet, 3rd session out of 7 is this week. And havent yet started taking citalopram?? not sure why either!? however since going to the doctors, my boyfriends mum has been diagnosed with lung cancer and it is now terminal, my boyfriend used to be my support, but now he himself is quite understandably struggling, so with both of us like this life is just a living hell. Feel it may be time to go for the citalopram, but we are also trying for a baby! yes crazy maybe. doctors said it is fine to go ahead and take citalopram whilst trying to conceive? on the one hand I feel so noraml, im ok, I have a lovel family, boyfriend, friends, home, job, cat, life... I never know why im so so down. but I am, most days i feel so numb and empty and just focus on making it through the working day, I dont want this to effect my relatiosnhip. or my life/health. please help me!
