Ok, today is my 4th day on 10mg Lexapro and I have to say this is my worst day. I feel terrible. I just want to go home and go to bed. I know it takes time, but words of encourgement would be very helpful today.
As sadness and depression sets in, the mind wanders to the edges of the universe and latches on to floating thoughts of self destruction and demise. As you turn to look at the world again, you will see that you are wanted, needed, cherished, admired and greatly loved.
You just have to remember that things WILL get better. Sometimes its hard to remember that, especially when you are having a really rough day. I know that people suffering from depression are supposed to try not to lay around and sleep too much, but I find that a good 2 or 3 hour nap in the afternoon seems to "reset" my brain, and I wake up feeling much better.
