Depression!!!

I have a birthday party to go to tonight and I can't even get myself in a good mood for it. That's how bad my depression is, I just can't seem to get rid of the depression

Re: Depression!!!

Go it will force your mind off things even if its a only for a few hours,I know its easier said then done but if you force yourself you'll be glad you did and maybe will feel better about yourself.

Re: Depression!!!

There are things we can do to cope with depression. Sometimes we just have to take care of ourselves like we were a sick child. Think about the simple things that would make you feel better; treats like sweets or a nice cake, ice cream, bake some cookies, drawing and painting or just colouring books and pens, a soak in the tub, soft comfortable clothes, funny movies and books or comics, a walk in the parkÖ. The list goes on. You decide.

Is this depression brought on by the "crash" off of meds or is this just plain old crappy depression??

I have both... neither one is fun. I am sorry

Re: Depression!!!

It's the Lexapro that's making your depression worse! Trust me, I'm in the same boat...depressed, drag myself out of bed everyday, have no motivation, no interest in anything, I feel like a zombie but...because of that I take Wellbutrin XL 150 twice a day. That's what you ought to do - you need something more activating then Lex.

Just my 2 cents

I'm sorry to hear that you have yet to find the light at the end of the tunnel. I know how you feel. I can't recommend anything that you probably already know.

I'm not sure how long you've been on the anti-depressant, stay the course, and see where it goes.

Writing a daily mood journal helps, not only in helping you cope with the past - but, in helping the psychiatrist / doctor help you.

Re: Depression!!!

Depression sucks. I get it in cycles (right now I feel OK), although I'm not diagnosed with Bipolar or Depression..I think it's a waste of money right now for me to get another diagnosis.

So I deal with it on my own when the Depression comes back. I try to exercise more on those days and feel a little bit better.
Sometimes I just do nothing and try writing down what I feel in a journal.
