What has been your experience with zoloft? Any answers are appreciated, I am afraid.
I am extremely scared. Today, after years of this back and forth cycle of being "okay" and extremely down. I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. I knew things were bad, but every time I started to feel better, I thought that things were okay, but I'd end up right back in that downward spiral. I was really good at faking it until I started isolating myself more and picking fights. I couldn't enjoy family time, I dreaded it. I didn't and still don't have anything to look forward to. I dread things that I have to do for the masters program, especially presentations, but it is the only thing that I can think of that can make a difference for my future. I am alone. I dont have family to talk to about it. Instead, they ask me for money and get ****ing mad at me because it is not the amount they wanted, so I took it back until we talk, needless to say, they won't be very supportive. I am struggling trying to put myself through classes and now this. I am afraid. What if I don't get better? What if I get worse? What if I become dependent? I am scared. Im asking myself, what if it is just me? What if I can get better on my own? What if one day things work out for me? I don't know. I say I want to try things, but not motivated to do anything that isn't required, shoot even the requirements take a lot out of me. Can anyone share their experience with antidepressants? Specifically, this one? What did you have to do (e.g. dietary restrictions, work out, etc...)? Long term or short term? Did they help or make you worse? I have not taken it yet. I am scared out of my mind. My family is mad at me and I have no support outside of the medical/counseling field. I'm just scared.
