It's been an entire 7 days that I've been on citalopram! I cannot tell if I've had any bad side effects due to my whole body already feeling like poo from before, so I'm hoping there are none! I think the idea that they will work is making me happier in this plight of mine.

I think damsel was taking the same kind? I think I had bad side effects from prozac and zoloft in like 2011 or 2012. Haven't tried any since then.

I'm looking forward to getting through my injury and maybe not needing antidepressants in a few months, but we will see. Maybe I should stay on them so I dont drink cleverly day like I was before. Thatd be good.

Mental health is srs. I'm finally confronting it at 27.

27 is tumultuous. For everyone I think.

It becomes more streamlined after you start to accept your tendencies and limitations.

I’m complacent though. Don’t trust me.

Yes. Citalopram is what I was prescribed for postpartum depression and I continue to take it. It has really helped. I have no side effects from it, personally. It has really helped balancing my moods. But one thing it doesn't do as well as I would hope is to alleviate anxiety.

I would just take it day by day. Get through the holidays. Reflect on the wonderful things you have in your life and try to stay positive. You'll be OK.

I think the hardest thing I found about starting anti-depressants was I thought it'd be short-term, and found it difficult when I realised I wouldn't be 'fixed' that soon.
So maybe try and assume you'll be on meds for ages, then you'll be prepared, but also feel better if you're off them sooner?
Anyway, glad you're addressing this

I was worried about my anxiety, too. I was having attacks nightly a little over a week ago. I couldn't sleep because I felt like I couldn't breathe. I have been sleeping a lot better now that I'm on it. But my body is in all sorts of disarray from my surgery and healing. So who knows if it has helped the anxiety or if my body is just healing more.

I think I'm feeling better just because I've finally DONE something good for my health. I've spent so many years punishing my body through an eating disorder that I'm finally caring about the mentality I have instead of just my physical body.

I think not drinking has helped with the clarity, too.

I've been thinking a lot about the time I was in the behavioral health hospital and during one of the groups the therapist played Count on Me by Bruno Mars with her guitar and we changed some of the lyrics.

Now that song has stuck with me. I cried when she sang it. The only one in that room that was crying. I never asked for help in all my years. Having people to help me has been my savior. I can't begin to let them know how grateful I am.

And likewise, good luck with the anti depressants. I went through 3- 4 before finding one that i could tolerate the side effects

Look at all that metal! You're like a super human!

You should have come to Westmead hospital and then I could have been your case manager.

So far I'm thinking they're not giving me any bad side effects. Today marks 3 weeks on this one. I was crying every day and now I've only cried once in the last 3 weeks. I've had less anxiety, but I think it's slightly still there when I think about it.
