I have been suffering with anxiety over the past 7 years and it's got a lot worse. I'm currently taking Beta-blockers x3 (20mg) daily. My doctor recently prescribed me Citalopram and I'm terrified about taking them. I recently lost my younger brother in April of last year hense, my anxiety getting worse which has now made my depression a lot worse. I was due to start my level 4 in counselling in September of last year but had to differ as I couldn't cope with my grief. Could anyone please share with me their own personal experiences of anti-depressants...I don't know why I feel like such a failure but I do. I have no drive, energy, motivation, I cry all the time, I feel hopeless and sad constantly, I hate leaving the house etc. Is this just grief or depression? I know my doctor has prescribed me the anti-depressants...I guess I just want people's thoughts, do they really help without turning you into a zombie or is that just a myth? Any feedback would be very warmly received x
