Talking

I have good ideas on occasion. We'd need a catchy name, like Don't Bring Me Down
or Let Me Be Me, something fun, eye catching and to the point. Continuing to think of names or titles. If anyone is interested, then let us know

HEY Sabra & Cinderellen! Can I join your club? I think I have all the necessary qualifications! LOLOL Gypserose, I too am on mediations for asthma and depression and do not find that they interfere with one another - I agree with Sabra, talk to your pharmacist. ((((Gypserose))))
If you ever need to talk, my Inbox is always open!

About 12 years ago, I simply stopped doing things. I would come home with groceries or just general shopping bring the things in and put them down and walk away. Melted ice cream,spoiled milk and meats, it didn't phase me a bit. Then it grew from doing this to fixing dinner and not doing dishes, didn't put things away, laundry piled up when I did it. I would lose days of time. My home looked like a yard sale, then a toxic waste site. Very strange.

But I can now remember back when I was much younger and note long periods of time I had no memory of events.

I could function at work, do my profession well and admirably and have absolutely no memory of what I had done that day, week, month to almost a year of time I lost. I went no where but work and occasionally shopping. I withdrew from my family, laid on the couch, reading or not. Began to self medicate with alcohol. More time lost. Fortunately after I began anti depressants I didn't often drink to excess anymore. I would alternately sleep every chance I could or would pace, be somewhat agitated and not sleep.......for days at a time.

Thought of suicide almost constantly, even had the process all worked out. Attempted suicide several times and the final time is what awakened in me I needed help. Even with therapy and medication, I go into downward spirals, but at least I'm aware enough now of the signs to know it's time to get the medication changed. All I can say is I'm grateful for antidepressants

I don't have much to say at the moment, but just wanted to thank you for sharing that.

(((everyone))) Menopause brought on my depression. I had never experienced anything like it. All I wanted to do was stay in bed all day. Everything was an effort. I didn't care about anything and I cried constantly. My doctor prescribed Sarafem and it made all the difference in the world. I too am thankful for antidepressants.

(((((Sabra))))) I've been there too, sometimes I have downward spirals. It's a real victory to just realize that I'm heading backwards. When I was depressed, I didn't realize that things were so bad. I lost periods of time too. It's scary in that it's so insidious. I'm just glad that I finally sought help.

Depression

Well I have not been myself for awhile now and thought it was either a midlife crisis or stress. When I couldn't take it anymore I went to my doctor.
She calls it depression and gave me the drug Celexa.
I went on the net and the reviews are pretty scary.Before I take this drug any personal insight on it or any other anti depressant would be welcome.

sunflower, it's good you did research on Celexa but all medications should be taken with caution. Talk to your doctor, explain your concerns and ask questions. All antidepressants and all medications have potential side affects, however from what I've read on Celexa, it has less side affects than many do. Good luck

Then you should immediately do two things, stop taking the meds and contact your doctor, don't wait two weeks!
