And I just hate the thought of taking the meds again... I'm on so many as it is... And I know I fear gaining weight again (I've lost so much and still have aways to go)... But thank you :)


Perhaps a trip back to the DR for alternative meds. Yes Anti Depressives are hell on a body, but you should be on them a minimum 6 months, and you should not mess about with them. My Dr's advise was it takes 6 mo to correct that chemical imbalance then after that time period you either increase, reduce and remove the dose. As well keep busy, mind and body this helps greatly.

A couple sessions or agro beat a life time worth.

I really sympathize with you...I am bi-polar so have been there and have to remain on the meds, like it or not...they are a pain to take as I have so many other things I have to take meds for...my advice is find a "good" psychiatrist and go tell your story once more...they are the only ones who can properly perscribe medications...it has such a bad rep telling any one you are going to a shrink but when I finally did, he got to the problem and gave me meds to help...I haven't gone back to one for about 4 years but have moved and have a new appointment on the 15 of this month which means I have to tell my whole story over again only add in the death of my husband of 59 years...don't look forward to it but must if I don't want to continually look back...I plead with you...go see someone ...you are not going to bring your friends down...if they are true friends they will be praying for you and supporting you all the way...
