Glad I found this place.It's a long story,but to make short,I have been under alot of stress for several years. My mother in law for 1 has driven me crazy for 14 yrs(she BLOWS Raymonds mom away,on everyone loves Raymond",LOL!)
My dad was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer 4 yrs ago,& I have been his total advocate.He is my best buddy,besides my mom. I have 3 kids,& all I can say is I am aware that I've been "losing it for some time now. I call it "flipping the switch sometimes.....
I have to hide my fears&tears around my parents as this horrible cancer is destroying him ever so slowly,& I have just found out that he has lungs metastisis as well now,yet I have not told them,because I had read his chart....& Thusday when we go to dr. they will tell them....yet I had discovered this myself while waiting with my dad for some radiation last week.
I have always been a caregiver in the family ...& I am aware how all of this has made me neglect my own family(3 kids,13,9&5)....& mostly,myself.I realize I do need strenghth for what is ahead,& I am just falling apart. I dont know how my husband can stand me,as I take it out on him mostly,& my poor kids,yelling& lashing out at I dont even know what or why .....DEPRESSION"........
SOOOOOO....my sister in law went with me to my md yesterday & he gave me ZOLOFT.50 mg...& said to start today with half (25mgs) for a week,then take the 50&come back in a month. My brother &his daughter are also on zoloft(100 mgs).......& they say it runs in families....well....I have not taken my 1st zoloft yet today,as I hate to start on anything that may make me gain weight(more than I have already w/depression)....& considering trying SAM-e 1st,as it is natural....
Any one else try SAM-e....also anyone else can PLEASE tell me your experiences with zoloft.Side effects,etc?
THANK YOU THANK YOU
