Re: Experience of using anti depressants

Hi cookiemonster, Thanks for your insight, any type of cookies in particular? The doctor did advise me to be aware that after 2 or 3 weeks I may experience increased anxiety for a week or so and the urge to act impulsively, but to be aware this is just a characteristic of the medication and ride it ...

Re: Experience of using anti depressants

Hi, capitalt and emloja and thank you for your kind words, they are really helpful for me. I know it is early days and I understand the need to be patient, as there is no quick fix. It just feels good to take positive steps towards a solution. The doctor I saw initially wasn't my doctor, but another...

Re: I can't take it anymore!

Maybe picking up the phone and talking to the samaritans will help in the moments when feel the urge to harm yourself free...

Re: Hi I'm new here!

Hi James, welcome. I am new here too and have been welcomed with some kind words and useful advice. I guess what led me here in the 1st place was a need to seek the help of others, as I was no longer able to cope on my own. It's early days, but I've found by reading and relating to the posts on here...

Re: Hello, 1st post & not sure what I am looking for.

Hi, I have spoken to my doctor who has started me on an anti-depressant and I have self-referred to the local heath care trust to access talking therapies etc.. I am waiting for an assessment call from them over the next few days. I know both of these will take a while to have an effect, but by aski...

Feels like I'm moving in the right direction.

I finally made an appointment with my doctors surgery this morning, could not see my doctor and had to wait around a while, but I had nowhere else to be. Got to explain my situation and how I felt to a professional, who was very sympathetic and helpful. They gave me details of how to self-refer to t...

Re: Hello, 1st post & not sure what I am looking for.

Hi, Thanks for your reply, it helps me to remember I am not alone, and everyone's situation is relative. I received the call from victims support, which I found really helpful in actually being able to talk to a person about my current issues. Unfortunately the information on help they mailed was a ...
