Hi!
I am brand new to this board. I suffer from depression, and have for the past (well as it is documented)six years.
I have been on and off of Prozac--partially due to funds. ( I am a college senior on my own, trying to finish school, hold two jobs in a college town and take care of my pups. I am also 25-years-old trying to live in a world of spoiled, "daddy-pays-for-everything" type of crowd. (Ok--so I am a bit jealous! But I have learned more that they ever will by living on my own! And for that I am proud).
I have found when I am off of Prozac--like now--I tend to "self-medicate" with weed or alcohol--mainly alcohol. I just cannot deal with life itself and feel like I need to hide by clouding my thoughts and memories.
Is ther anyone like this? Am I alone in this freaking battle? Where do I find my peace? Will I ever be able to live without Prozac? (I want to).
Please! Someone give me some feedback. We are all in this together--and it sucks!
Kimber
