  1. Hello to all the amazing people in this forum I am not sure if I'm okay being here as I have just started taking ssri yesterday. This wasn't a easy choice but my quality of life owing to a long term battle with depression has become hard to live with. So begrudgingly but knowing I had tried other methods with limited success or none I had to do it. I have been on and off anti depressants since I was 12 years old. My mum remarried and my stepfather was abusive so instead of trying to help a tablet was given to me saying it would help me sleep. Thanks mum ...not. during this time I was very suicical and constantly seeking psychological treatment. I was on this tablet for most of my teens and tbh can't remember if I cold turkeyed or tapered. I am now 47 yes old. I had post natal depression that was incorrectly diagnosed for tiredness, so I was given heavy duty sleeping tablets until I changed Drs and was given allergron. I was in this for many years and decided one day to taper off. Things were okay. Last year I suffered from a emotional breakdown and am still ruminating badly, my therapist is great and helpful but in the last 6 months have been suicidal and very negative and finding no joy in life at all. If it wasn't for my daughter and our cat I would not be here. So I am sorry if I am not allowed here in this forum but it has been so helpful reading about everyone and their thoughts and lifepaths. I don't want to be on these new ssri drugs but really feel I'm slipping. The dr selected them as I haven't tired this type before. The others have given too many bad side effects but after reading some of the long term effects I'm not sure what I'm doing now. I just know I need help. Thanks for reading and please let me know if I'm not allowed to be on here Cheers Twiggy????
