Something's getting me down...

I stopped taking Celexa a little while ago. I started weening off of it maybe 8 months ago and have been completely off of it for about 2 months now.

Anyway, I need some advice. I'm feeling very down lately because of something that's going on in my life right now. I hate the way I feel but I don't want to go back on medication because I know this is something that will pass with time.

I'm also afraid that this could be the start of a downward spiral.

Does anyone have experience with a depressing event happening after you've already gone off of the medication? This is the first real problem I've come across and I'm not sure what to do.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Re: Something's getting me down...


I suffer from depression, but I have never been on medication for it. I find that I now know when I am starting to get really bad and stop myself. I surround myself with people I love and make sure I am busy and I generally wont get as bad as I normally would. I mean, it does not stop me from feeling depressed totally, but it does help a lot.

I am sorry I cannot help more...
Good luck and keep in touch

Re: Something's getting me down...

Lifesa*****andthenyoudie.....No, thats not
what I meant to say at all. Just slipped
on the keyboard, you know.
Life in general is a series of ups and downs
and good and bad events (and people).
So are you supposed to get depressed when
something bad happens or something you wanted
gets taken away or not even offered?
HELLYES..but not depressed in the clinical
sense. If you did'nt you would be considered
abnormal and a "cold hearted" person.
A psycopath is concened with him/herself only. They are the people you don't want
to mess with because they don't get depressed
they get mean and do or say terrible things.
So, if your not cold hearted or a psycopath
you will get depressed (sad,upset,down,hurt)
many, many, many, many times in your life.
So you just got to learn to bend and not
break, lean and not fall and all those other
good sayings that mean that you just got to
reach down and pull up a little guts and
common sense and get on with the rest of your
life. Feeling sorry for yourself as my mom
used to tell me does'nt solve or help anything.
End of lecture...test tomorrow.

Re: Something's getting me down...

Thanks guys! <IMG SRC="">

You really make a lot of sense. I guess that I thought I shouldn't have felt as bad as I did. I feel much better today.

The person that this "problem" concerns and I had a long discussion last night. I guess that I thought one thing and he meant another. That's what I was so upset about. Miscommunication!!

Anyway, all is a little better. I'm still not exactly happy with what is going on, but it will work itself out.

I know now that I don't want to turn to drugs (the legal kind) everytime something gets me a little down. It was just scary! I'll make it through with your advice.

Thanks again!

Re: Something's getting me down...


I am glad to hear everything has worked out as much as it can right now. I am also glad to hear that you are not going to go onto medications, what you are describing sounds as though it does not need them at all.

Anyway, keep in touch
