fed up of feeling numb again and not knowing why. fed up of not being motivated to do certain things and so scared about 2009

Anna...usually doctors first put you on SSRIs. http://www.patient.co.uk/showdoc/23068871
There are soooo many drugs out there that it can take a while to find one that suits you. I was put on Fluoxetine and I was fine on it but I know others, such as raspberry, who have had horrible side effects and felt even worse on it. You have to be very careful and depending on symptoms and side effects, doctors will choose different drugs for different people.

I'm so upset I've been paid for my 4 days at Tesco but I swear the company have paid me incorrectly. Got to ring them tomorrow and deal with reclaiming tax and stuff. I didn't even fill in a P46 like I should have. I only know I should have because I've just looked it up online. Grr! So upset More hassle to be dealing with and I just can't be doing with it at the minute

Some people find it can make them more anxious. It will stop the racing heart and associated symptoms but some find that it slows down their heart enough to make them feel cold, sweaty and dizzy. If you don't mind those as a side effect, they're quite effective in treating anxiety in the short term, but if you know it's likely to make you panic more, it's not worth it.

As for SSRIs, they're not to be taken lightly. I personally wouldn't recommed them as anything other than an absolute last resort. They can often leave you feeling even more depressed than before when you have to come off them. An overwhelming number of people wind up being on them for life.

Im not being rude, just asking!

Do you suffer with depression personally? as the idea of this society is just support really for those that suffer from it, we get advice from healthcare professionals all the time..

I've suffered with anxiety, panic attacks, health related anxiety and the resulting depression. My mother is bipolar and my father is depressed and possibly alcoholic. So, yes I've experience of it. Personally.

My advice comes from both a professional and personal position.

I've been on citalopram before and have come off it twice, currently the second time. Off to the doctors at 10 to see what he says. I just need to not feel like this all the time .

Can one only claim to have depression if they've been clinically diagnosed with it?
