Ok so to start off I was diagnosed at age 15 with depression I have dealt with it on off since then.I have tried different meds some good and some bad some helped others did not,9 months ago I went off the meds I was taking at the time,everything seemed to be going ok,2 months later it was like my world was ripped away from me,my ex and I broke up things seemed to go bad from there I started drinkg alot and doing drugs something that I have never done,I mean yeah I used to drink but not to the extent that I am,the type pf drug I choose though was not something I would have ever seen myself doing. I have now decided its time for a change,its been 7 months and I want to go back to the person I was before,I made the call to my doctor today and we are going to sit down and come up with a plan that will help me,I know I have the will to go forward with this and I want to succeed.I am going to be going back on meds I have to decide between PAXIL or EFFEXOR not sure of either one of these I have not tried them yet. Not really sure if what I have written belongs in this group but I wanted to get it off my chest and doing it here makes me feel safe and know that I will not be judged. So if anyone has any advice it is greatly appreciated.Thanks for reading,take care and wishing everyone a bright future. For as of right now I live in a dark world with only small glimpes of sunshine.
