I so hope i haven't got depression again. - September 15th 2010, 09:01 PM

So,
As some people may already know, i stopped taking my Anti Depressants around three weeks ago or something.
I'm not sure if the symptoms can come back immediatly but i've started feeling a bit shitty again. I can't remember what my depression was like before, as you know, i was depressed. :P
I'm always tired. Never want to do ANYTHING. I can't really socialise again anymore, and for some reason i just keep crying. Like, all the time? What is up with that.

I don't count myself as having a relapse as i only burnt once out of curiousity and i forgot the feeling of cutting so i made a little scratch. But i mean, that's nothing. So it's still been 8 weeks since i last properly SH.

I don't want to go back on the tablets and things have only just started looking up again at school. I just want everything to go away, but i don't know if i'm depressed again, or getting there.

Please help


How come dumb stuff seems so smart while you're doing it?
Good friends get drunk with you. Best friends hold your hair back when you've had a bit too much to drink!
There's no such thing as good girls gone wrong, only bad girls found out.
I've learned...
that maturity has more to do with what types
of experiences you've had and what you've
learned from them and less to do with how
many birthdays you've celebrated.

Hey there,

Did you talk to your doctor about the fact that you want to go off the medicine? If not I strongly suggest you get in with them. I know that that might be hard but going off of a medicine cold turkey can be really dangerous. If you explain to your doctor the reasoning behind wanting to go off your medicines I am sure he/she will try to accomodate you.

I want to remind you that being on medicines is not the worst thing and usually doctors do not insist that their patients stay on it forever. There are a lot of doctors who get their patients stable for a while and then slowly talk about weaning them off medicines. So, you might need to be on medicines now but that is not a forever thing.

Please hang in there and feel free to pm me if you need anything!

Jenna
