I have tried so many things and at this point was against anti depressants. I gave Pristiq a shot because my doctor gave me samples. It was hard to start, and I had to switch to half at first. Anyway long story short I'm really glad I stuck through it because now I can take the full dose and honestly my life has changed. I can socialize, but for me the depression was also a huge thing. I actually feel pretty happy most days and am able to do things. I am active every day, and even my ED is much more under control. I didn't realize how ****ed up I was till I felt the way I do now.
“People don’t really want to know anything about you. They just want to put you into their little preordained slots. They decide what you are in the first two seconds, and they only get nervous or upset if you don’t live up to their snap judgements. That’s the only way the normal world’s like the Real – it all depends on who people think you are. Figure that out, play to what they expect, and it’s clear sailing.”
