Has any one ever ben prescribed cipralex, i have just been diognosed with mild depression, more compulsive thinking, ive been under a lot of pressure in the last year and cant seem to stop thinking about stuff that shoudent matter to me. I will stress over things what other people dont even think about like, did i say the right thing? why did i say that? and totaly beat my self up about been a bad mother, in reality my kids have every thing, im a single parent and try really hard to please my kids, my doctor thinks im trying to hard, i plan what i would do if my daughter got pregnant at 16, i go right in to it getting really stressed over the situation, thinking what if i dont cope and saysome thing wrong and she leaves home and i never see her again, and she ends up hating me and loving her B/F family more. my daughter by the way is 5, as you can see i have a big stress problem, its ruining my life, do these meds really work with out turning you in to a cabbage, i still have goals i want to achieve i just got my A-levels ans im hoping to go to uni, if i can get over this in one piece, any ideas ?
