Re: Not wanting to live.... but not wanting to die.

Hiya! Aww! Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a genuinely kind and thoughtful response. It really does mean a lot and I appreciate your honest insights. :) I think change happens when we are ready to make it. It's all about slow and steady, baby steps and doing what's right for us e...

Re: Not wanting to live.... but not wanting to die.

Hey, Good to hear from you, too. Thanks for taking the time to reply. I have signed a six month tenancy which means three months left. Unless the landlady can find someone to replace me. She's nice and we're meeting next week to discuss so hopefully! Worst case scenario, I have to make two more paym...

Not wanting to live.... but not wanting to die.

I came off my meds this year. I'd been on 200mg sertraline for two years previously. It helped me to cope with depression but eventually emotionally flatlined me. I felt NUMB and DEADPAN. :?: During the time on meds, I had 70 (!!) sessions of structured therapy (which is still drawing to a close in ...

Re: Work

Hi Ihsan! :) Thanks for posting. I appreciate your empathy and advice. I actually wrote this last year.... I'm still in the same job and settled there. I'm in my comfort zone in a job I can cope in and I would go so far as to say that I'm quite happy there. Asserting myself, revealing my actual pers...

Re: Coming off Antidepressants

Hey :) Thanks for replying. That's a measured way of viewing it. Very apt, too. I've still got until March to complete my current course of therapy before the CMHT look to discharge me. The aim is to reduce the meds from March. Although I would like to do it in January, sort of a 'new year/fresh sta...

Coming off Antidepressants

Has anyone had,(or does anyone know of others who have) experience the sensation of being 'real' and 'like my old self' once they've safely reduced and stopped taking their anti depressants? I've been on 200mg sertraline for three years in this coming January. I am no longer depressed. I've had lots...

Re: How long does depression last?

Hey So, Just do the best you can in the situation you're in. Allow yourself to feel your true emotions without the pressure of 'I should', 'I must' and 'I wish I was more....' It's natural to feel the sense of loss and grief regarding your therapy. That shows that you made a strong connection. You'v...

Re: How long does depression last?

Hey Minnie, That takes real patience, endurance, maturity and self-awareness to come to a point of feeling more acceptance and control. I'm glad your life doesn't feel like a roller coaster these days. I'm happy to be back in my old job. I'm also writing this from my new place. I moved in today. My ...

Re: How long does depression last?

Hey, Thanks for posting. How are you? I'm feeling the aftereffects now. Like a deflated balloon. Just really brain-dead and empty. :shock: It will pass..... *sigh* At least now my depression is reactive . Anyways, tomorrow I am viewing a shared house. My mother wants to tag along. I know this will m...
