I've been taking Zoloft for almost 2 months now, up to 150 MG now. I'm just a little more confident around people and simultaneously calmer, if that makes sense. It's hard to explain. I also don't get stuck in thought as much like I did before, it's more of an easy transfer from thought to thought. Today, my parents hosted a going away party for my brother, who's moving to Florida, and I was pretty comfortable and talkative with everyone, for the most part. Of course, there still are those instances where I wanted to say something and could of chimed in, but, I didn't. For me, the problem is more of the anticipation of the social event, being very hesitant to go to social gatherings, etc. Once I'm actually there and in the social setting, I'm never as bad as I thought I was going to be. Hopefully, I continue to see incremental improvements with this drug.
