    Prozac

    5
    I am taking Prozac for depression and OCD. It has had its pros and cons. When I first started the medication which was 20mg, I became exhausted. After a few days I had a derealization on myself and life, and became suicidal. I decided to half the medication and I am now at 10mg, which has helped me with my motivation and OCD. I notice things I never questioned before and now I see my unhealthy...

    When it's time to seek medication?  I've struggled with depression since my early teens.  I don't think it ever fully goes away.  I've just dealt with it throughout my life but I am currently at a point where I am in a not so good place.  So much is going on and it gets harder each day for me to cope.  I've never been on medication but I am wondering if maybe I should.  Curious to know from...

    Afraid to start over

    7
    unfortunately I'm at a point where I pretty much no my marriage is over. My anxiety and depression played a role in it however, being married to someone who has anxiety and anger issues also played a role. I'm scared to start over because I don't know where to start. Im a weak and insecure person who's scared to be alone.

    It's been months......

    I don't know what to do. It's been months and I've experienced my first death of someone close to me and I'm having stomach illness with no clear diagnosis and just other problems. I take my medicine and I go to counseling. I get up and get my son ready for school and I even make a pale attempt at working. It's so hard though and I can't do anything extra. I go days without a shower and ignore...

    Letting it out

    I am a 30 year old male, turning 31 in about a month. I was diagnosed with Social Anxiety & Clinical Depression around when i hit my twenties but have felt depressed, lonely and hated myself since early school years. Meeting new people is very difficult because I always worry what others think of me and feel I don't have the social skills needed to carry a conversation or hold one's attention...

    Sitting here with tears streaming down my face, angry because I woke up and wondering how I'm going to get thru the day. I am an alcoholic who after years of drinking now has chronic pancreatitis. I also suffer anxiety and depression. The days that I am not in constant pain I drink. When I dont drink I feel depressed and my anxiety levels shoot up. I cannot stop losing weight and am...

    I really think I'm going to end my life soon.

    There's really no point in me living in this world. Had a chance to meet girls and not be FA in four years of college, and I blew it. Now I'm in grad school and I'm not meeting anybody there either. Not that it matters, because I'm not physically attractive or interesting. It's basically going to be impossible for things to change as time goes on. And living in such a judgmental world where I...

    Hi I'm 15 years old from England, when I was 12 my dad died from cancer and I guess that's what started off my depression. I've been self harming since I was 10 and it's the only way I can calm myself down. I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks and just wish I had someone to talk to. If anyone walks to talk I'll listen and give advice, you can rant to me and I'll rant to you
