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...

Re: How long does depression last?

Hey Minnie, Sorry for the late response. Life. :roll: Don't feel embarrassed. We each have our own individual response to different stressors. What is paramount, is that you DID 'manage'. So go easy on yourself, be proud of yourself and allow yourself to feel. :) Besides, we learn from experience ab...

Re: How long does depression last?

Hey Minnie, Sorry I didn't reply sooner. I hadn't realised that you had messaged me. Thanks for checking in on me. I've been at least stable since my last post. I've enjoyed moments of joy, genuine laughter and feeling relaxed. No episodes since last month. I met my cpn again this week. She noted th...

Re: How long does depression last?

Hey Minniemoo, Thanks for your message. I agree that with time and a growth in one's self awareness, it is possible to lessen the severity of symptoms and to increase the time between episodes. I hope that it is possible to go away forever but I think probably it's more about being able to manage th...
