Thought I would give a quick intro. Was formally diagnosed with depression and anxiety in my early 50s. Many people over the years suggested I need help and medication. Tried everything but meds, reached out for help many times, but never made inroads. Started on meds after a major family crisis 6 years ago which is still continuing. First med didn't really help, 2nd one made a huge difference but effect started wearing off after a couple of years. Started seeing a psychiatrist last year and was diagnosed with cPTSD from a combination of childhood trauma and what is happening in our family.
Meds have been a life changer for me. Wish I'd gone on them sooner. Am now on a combination to help with different symptoms.
Starting to feel myself slipping again, but loathe to change meds. Just have a constant low mood, sleep heaps, struggle to get going.
Hoping to get and give support.

She is not aware of this. I'm sure she is going through a hell of a lot. She messaged me that she wanted to get together and go to a comedy...
