I just can't seem to get my mind right.

Need some help... Been on 20mg Lexipro for past two months and 10 MG before that for three months. I just can't seem to get my mind right. I get very nervous and uppset and then I can relapse into sleep and do nothing mode. I hold a job, but find it harder and harder to function on a day to day baisis. I have been single for the past four years but can't bring myself to make new close friend. Still have the feeling of no hope, but am told to take it day by day...is getting hard to keep up a front.

Re: I just can't seem to get my mind right.

wow- do we share alot in common! Sadly, I too am on lexapro, and dealing with the same issue's... I meet someone and give them my number hoping i will actually answer when they call but don't. I lost my job a couple weeks ago because of my anxiety and depression. Which has made life worse for me... So, you are not alone- I am sorry I cannot help you but know I am here..

Re: I just can't seem to get my mind right.

Sure seems like we are in the same position in life. I have been lonely for the past 4 years and find harder and harder to find the ambition to meet and then have no idea where to start. This whole depression thing is hard to understand. Will it ever end? I can feel for you in the loss of your job. I have questioned the Lexapro med,, but I cansee some improvememnt. Stick with it and pray that we can find ourselves.

Re: I just can't seem to get my mind right.

I can reach out to you and the others that feel like you too. I suffer from major depression,bi-polar,etc... see notes if ya wanna and i take ALOT of meds but i still have REALLY bad days too. I have been on SOOOO many different meds since 1992 it blows my mind to even think about it. I keep hoping for some "miracle medicine" that will make it ALL BETTER. I realize a pill can't cure everything but i sure would be willing to take it to try along with my therapy of course..... TAKE CARE!!!

I know how you feel. My brain has turned to mush. I don't take any meds. I feel like I'm coming unhinged mentally.
