Okay let me try to sum up what has been going on with me lately. I was diagnosed with Mono in February and I had a really bad case. I had to miss a week of school. I thought that would be the end of it, but here I am, 9 months later and I'm still tired all the time. I just recently moved away from home for the first time to attned college. I'm really stressed out/have high anxiety because it's hard for me to concentrate without any energy.
Now I was just informed by my mom that both sides of my family have a history of depression. My mom is on anti-depressents and so are my aunts and uncles. I'm currently having an extremely difficult time trying to figure out what's wrong with me. I'm not sure if it's the mono that is still bothering me causing me to be tired, or if it is depression. I haven't slept good in awhile, I always wake up early in the morning and then can't fall asleep. I just don't know what to do anymore! I'm seeing a counselor on Thursday, and I was wondering if anti-depressents would be the right thing for me. I just am new to the whole depression thing because before I was diagnosed with mono I was the happiest, energetic person around. What if I'm not depressed but I go on the anti-depressents anyway? Does something happen? Thanks.
