I think this is an extrodinary set of posts. Really honest and comforting to read. Thanks to everyone. Depression can be so overwhelming especially when you first expereince it and realise what it is. I was shocked and ashamed of my inability to fix myself...It's been hard work but I am proud of my journey so far. My mind is 'broken' too and I took zoloft for about a year and was doing OK. With the support of my D psych I had a break and fell in a heap rather quicky. I think he knew I would but it was a way of reassuring me that I was doing the right thing by taking the AD's. I'm back on the zoloft and beginning to feel like 'l' am emerging again.
Hang in there all of you. I really do beleive that it's two steps forward and one step back with depression and in the end we will all be better people for it.
Kaytee, I know it's been quite awhile since you made this thread but I feel like I am going through exactly the same problem. I've started Zoloft but it's making things worse. Did you ever get on an antidepressant and if so, did it help? I'm having really bad panic along with my depression. Thanks.
