    Hi Crazy Dave,

    I also had thoughts of ending it all, thinking it was easy to do but realised that its not easy at all.

    I think its harder to face up to the fact that you need help and have made a positive start by seeing someone.

    Ive been on the tablets for over two weeks now and when i look back at my state of mind, I feel like i never new that person. I never thought i would think the way i did but the tablets will help, they just need time to get into your system.

    Ive been through some side affects but thats just the body adapting to the new levels.

    Stick with it cause it will get better.

    Didnt belive it when people told me but it will :wink:

    Hi Valley girl

    thank you for your reply

    i suppose i just need to give it time, do you have a diary that you have been writing?, i thought about it last night and have started to write one about my feelings it may help i dont know, i do hope things will get better but at this time it just feels like it wont...... i suppose reading peoples thoughts on this stie has helped me to know that other people do feel the same as me and i'm not insane......

    thank you again for your reply i hope things are good for you.

    Take care

    Crazy Dave

    Hay you,

    I havent done a diary, but it sounds like a good idea. When you start to feel better, you can look back to see how low you were and how well you are doing.

    Its not going to be an overnight thing but it will get better with time.

    I found it good too, reading about other people, you dont feel so alone.

    Hang on in there crazy dave 8)

    Hi all

    There really is light at the end of the tunnel.

    To read of my darkest/weirdest moments during a bout of depression (aruing it was anxiety) please read the Citalopram forum right back to February of this year.

    Keep on fighting it - the demon known as depression really is weaker than the inner you.

    Good luck

    Dave, I am on day 8 of fluoxetine for the first time and having very bad side effects and thoughts. I went on the web to see if was me getting worse and i was so relieved to read your note, so thank you for doing that. I hope you can stick with it to get the benefits after the two weeks people talk about.I am going to try and do that, after talking to my GP. Dont give up. I know my children would never understand if I was not there for them.
