I think when we are in a wave it makes us feel like we have always been unwell, with no progress. Maybe after this wave, you will see more improvements? 



May 2016 - Aug 2016 - Prozac 20mg


March 2017 - June 2017 - Sertraline 100mg. Horrific withdrawal 5 m onths.


July 2017 - Aug 2017 - Mirtazapine 15mg. Horrific.


August 2017 - December 2017 Fluoxetine 10mg for 2 weeks ghen Escitalopram 20mg for 12 weeks. Never felt normal since this. Or baseline.


March 2018 - June 2018 - Escitalopram 5mg for 12 weeks. Stopped and here i am full of symptoms i never had.

Hi.  Oh, I have been in that state so many times.  It’s hard for me to believe that I am through with experiencing the doubt that I will heal, but it appear that I am.  It’s “cold comfort” to hear “It will get better,” or “You will heal,” I know, and yet you need to hear it over and over and over.  Whilst in a wave, the thoughts about the future can’t be trusted.  You know that, but you have the doubts regardless.   Even those doubts will go away.  

I’m glad that you have the dogs.  Having someone who depends on you is both frustrating and very, very important.  

I don’t know when you will stop having SI, but I do know it will stop.  I take it for granted much of the time, but every so often I think, “This is so amazing.  I can live through all sorts of days, and moments, that used to take me so low, and there is no SI.”  It’s an absurd thought, no?  How many people go through life never thinking that thought?  And yet, it’s a wonderful thought for me.  You will see that sort of life again, Erell.  If I can, you can.

Hang in there, dear.  I’m so sorry this happened to you.  I hope it will make you appreciate life on the other side so much more than many others do.  For now, you just have to bide your time and get through it.  I’ll be thinking of you.
