    Mind is more important than everything. And your family knows that, that is why they support your medication. Have you any support with a diet plan? I mean just to maybe minimise the effect of the medication by avoiding certain foods? As long as you do not develop really bad eating habits, in the long term you should loose the fat again and don't do your body too much harm. I know it is like choosing between rain and hail, but at the end, the mind is what will bring you the furthest in life and more happiness, hence I would allways place that first.

    I don't have a diet plan or anything. The problem with this drug is that it mucks up my metabolism so even if I try eating less it won't really help too much to avoid weight gain. I'm already eating way under what I should be. However, I'm taking metformin after every meal to try and reduce weight gain but it's still early days so I don't know how effective it will be. Hopefully it will help. :crossedf:

    You are right though, I have to prioritize my mind right now. Thanks for the advice



    And btw, I watched the Prozac Nation movie, I see what you mean about her - she just seemed like an ******* regardless of depression.

    I agree with Panda that writing stuff down could be useful. Do you think you can make any notes right now so that your doc realizes how bad things are for you?

    cant sleep and its nearly 2am. Lovely.

    I think the fact that maths went as crap as it did its completely thrown me off... I need this for college and I doubt people understand how much it means to me to prove all the idiots wrong... And I've completely ****ed myself over because I just froze in the exam hall. The barriers went down and I just couldn't continue with the bloody paper.

    My head is absolutely spinning.

    Can't sleep. Am staying up pretty much every other night at the minute. Been in work sometimes 12 hours or more per day and still can't sleep. Only getting 8 hours worth of work done though cos i can't sit still and have to go outside, write emails or look things up online and make plans. Can't stay still or stop speaking or writing or thinking. I'm full to bursting with thoughts, like I'm on a merry-go-round. Getting the urge to sing out loud all the time, tunes circling in my head.

    Jay, this sounds a lot like mania, I think it would be a good idea for you to get in contact with your doctor just so they know what's going on.

    With studying or day to day life? Try to remove the thing that you use to procrastinate when you want to carry out a task, eg what I do when revising is to leave my phone downstairs. Hope this helped x

    Studying and sometimes both ... Problem is, that as soon that I hit home, I stop doing things. And I cannot really ban my phone or laptop from my room... (only have one and need my laptop constantly for looking things up)

    I used to be like that, maybe if your next exam isn't soon then take a break for a bit so you feel refreshed and then try and work, you literally have to force yourself, and think about when it's over x

    There are a lot of horror stories around about antidepressants but its not the general experience I dont think. People are much more likely to post bad experiences on the internet for example...

    When I was on citalopram I didnt really get any side effects other than having a dry mouth which was more annoying than worrying. I know that Ive been quite lucky and many people get some sort of nausea or other effect in the first few weeks, but they do decrease. I would say definitely go for it - if you do have a reaction that worries you for any reason you can go back and discuss it with your doctor - you never know it might help to solve your problems

    wow, okay so I could feel it after an hour! This is the weirdest thing ever. Everything feels slow, I also felt a little bit nauseous but it's okay now.
    Could you share more about it? Did it help you? How did you feel? Sorry im just interested

    Phoned Mind and my hometowns local CMHT today already. Found a lot of useful information and hopefully will be able to put it to good use. Just need to get out of this thought pattern of "I don't deserve help because I'm [insert insult here]".

    PS thanks everyone. You're all amazing to me even when I'm an incoherent mess, not sure what I'd do without you guys.

    And thank you sabertooth for the script, haven't got it to work yet, but my brains still not totally in gear. :lol:
