    Today II

    hey man, its been awhile. good to see you're still with us - sorry to see you're still here. I dropped off for awhile - geeze I guess I was feeling better - but the dark clouds are looming on the horizon. started my slip by searching the web for answers to life's problems or other solutions. I’m afraid I’m starting to run around with scissors again 8( new Doc new meds (off zoloft & on lamotrigine) which must have worked for awhile as I kinda forgot about you all. anyways saw you name and thought I’d say howdy.

    How Do You Feel Right Now? #7

    I haven't been around the forum much - that is a good thing as I am gaining the upper hand my attitude has done a 180 degree turn - it is nice not to think of death every 30 seconds. thought I'd share some goodness best

    Return to Zoloft?

    @MarkintheDark IDK - I just upped my dosage as I wasn't getting results.... without my Dr's knowledge. The ramp up is so long I can understand that you want to jump in.

    Should I wait to increase or not?

    @Illusions144 its all about what you can deal with. If you can muscle thru the side effects, go for it. To make things a little easier on your body, you may want to step yourself up by breaking tabs so that you're only increasing by 25mg every few weeks....

    Return to Zoloft?

    @MarkintheDark Why not ask these questions to your psychologist on Monday? It's only a few days away, can you hold out till then? maybe they'll have a different suggestion?!?

    Who to see?

    I have been under the care of a GP for meds for the last 8 to 10 weeks. It's time to go check in and I just got the bill for the first two visits. due to my insurance deductibles etc - it is as expensive to see a Psychiatrist as a GP. I'm starting to get frustrated as it's been a few months and I'm still in this spiral (although I have not gone to a therapist). Anyone have any thoughts on changing it up and going to a psychiatrist (vs my MD)?? thanks in advance

    How Do You Feel Right Now #6

    I continue to have anxiety and I still have not gotten started getting started. Everyday I have a list of things I need to do but zero motivation to execute. I think I'm starting to sound like a broken record.... Urg. I know I need to stop hoping that the meds will kick in and do the simple things: vitamins, eating, exercise, shower, look for a job. Why can't I get going?!? Zero discipline.

    When You Feel Like A Failure

    I think there will always be "someone doing better" than you (and me). Unless you have "everything" then life would be pretty boring... right?!?

    How Do You Feel Right Now #6

    I'm closing in on 11 months. I keep telling myself "I need to change something if I want change". It's hard when getting out of bed is an effort.

    How Do You Feel Right Now #6

    It's Friday. I feel bad that another week has past and I have accomplished very little. I am stuck in a rut of nothingness, going nowhere.

    Getting Started Doing Right

    If you have an iPhone there's an app / check the preinstalled health app. It doesn't monitor heart rate tho distance, steps, stairs etc not sure who collects the data (Apple?!)

    Getting Started Doing Right

    Two weeks later and still asking myself the same question: how can I find the energy to get started?!? I am tired of having no energy - being depressed and feeling like a blob of nothingness.

    How Do You Feel Right Now #6

    thinking about the pointlessness of everything tired of the anxiety - I want to run & hide obviously not doing good
