This is my first time posting here I suffer from depression and anxiety. I went to my doctor and he gave my laxapro. I still feel so hopeless I hate my life. I just hate feeling this way.


I am taking my life back!

lynne, how long have you been on the lexapro? it does take some time to feel the effects. if you have given it enough time and it's still not working, you might need to try something different.


no, I can't take one more step towards you...cuz all that's waiting is regret...

there's just too much that time cannot erase

Has anyone ever dealt with acute panic attacks from the effects of infidelity? (ie. rapid heart rate, extreme anxiety, Panicy chest pressure) Already on Lexapro but wonder how long this will go on (been 5 weeks since I got the whole story) It's been debiliating at times and I really want to figure how to get over this.

i have had a few panic attacks, but not that bad so i have been able to handle them. have you told your dr? perhaps you need some ativan or xanax for those times. how long have you been on the lexapro?

boohoo, agree with its. You might need a low dose of Xanax to help with the anxiety.

I'd also get a complete physical as well.

I think my meds are beginning to kick in slightly. I don't feel that rage running through my veins as much. (PTSD)

The doctor said it would take two to three weeks to feel the full effects of the medication.

Now I wish she would give me something to help me sleep, 3-4 hours a night is killing me.

This A crap is devastating. I am so, so tired.

does anyone know an antidepressant that doesnt cause weight gain? I havent taken any before, but I go to the doctor in a couple weeks and was going to talk to her about it. Its been almost 1 year since D-day and I still have panic attacks and still cant push the images and feelings to the back of my head to get through a day.

So, for the first time in a while I am feeling almost human. I think the increase in ad's is just starting to help. Not there yet, though.

I am back in ic for childhood issues, which are really beating me up. We are also dealing with the depression and my weight, since they are all related. Unfortunately, my ic is on vacation next week, so I have to wait another week.

How is everyone?

So, I had a couple of really bad days early last week.

But the last few days I have been feeling good! I think the increase is working!

How is everyone?

I recently spent five days in a depressive spiral after finding out even more A related crap. The dosage increase has been a tremendous help for me. I wish I would have called immediately. I could have saved myself a lot of grief.

Me, too. I should have called way sooner, and maybe I wouldn't have gone so low.

However, we both finally made the call and now feel better, so we can't dwell on the fact that it could have happened sooner, right?

Right...that's what I'm trying to do. My IC is helping me to accept that I am not perfect and when I Eff up, to actually say "Tah Dah!, I'm a human being. I made a mistake! What have I learned?" It's all part of my lessons in life. I can't wait to get my degree in "Surviving Infidelity". Heck, I'd even settle for a "Certificate of Completion" at this point.

The last few days though, I've set fewer, smaller goals with amazing results. I can succeed without a plan, a contingency plan and a contingency plan for the contingency plan. I have an idea what I want to accomplish in the long haul, what small things can I do in the next hour, few hours or day to work toward it?

((((itspjw))))

I just made a very few very small goals for myself a few days ago. When those become a habit, I will be adding more.

I slammed hard into the wall of depression! It started out with extreme mood swings and insomnia and progressed into unstoppable crying, couldn't get out of bed, sleeping all the time and having very dark thoughts.

I reached out for my doctor and started taking an anti-depressant again. These are NOT miracle cures, but at least in my case it's helping to keep a balance. I don't have the extremes like I did before I started the medication. Now of course I still have a bad day sometimes but I'm doing much better.

I would encourage anyone feeling completely overwhelmed to contact their doctor for advice and possible medication. There is NO shame in admitting that something is bigger than you are and that you need help! It takes great strength and courage to reach out for help when you feel like life isn't worth living. I've been into the bowels of Hell with depression and I am so thankful that I recognized it and got the help that I needed. In addition to medication we are in MC, the combination seems to be working so far.

Hi everybody, my heart goes out to all of you. I didn't sleep at all for the first three months after I found out about my H's A. I really mean NOT AT ALL. It will be four years next month & I still have insomnia. I sleep now, but it's difficult to get to sleep & I wake up often. Most nights I only get a few hours of sleep. It's 3:44 AM as I write this
