Depression, how long and how bad was it?
If anyone else has dealt with this, can you tell me how longs yours lasted and how bad it got?
I too suffer from anxiety and depression which is usually controled with meds. I noticed a few
months out of surgery (10 &1/2 months now) having more issues with depression. I am feeling much better now. Change is hard, even when most of it is positive. I think I was having
issues with not being able to medicate with food when feeling stressed. Hang in there things
will get better!
Also my depression was the worst about 2 years ago. It got to the point where I was hospitalized overnight for suicidal thoughts. I wasn't on lexapro at the time, I was on effexor and abilify. It was the abilify that tipped me over the breaking point. I had pretty much every side effect from it. One of my "friends" kept telling me I had to find my trigger that was causing my episodes, last year I found out....it was her.
So far i have not noticed any real issues with absorbtion of it. I am also going through lots of changes..will be an empty nester next year, just started a new job, hubby is gone a lot and i just found out he has been smoking behind my back for 4 years. Not a big deal to some but this means my issues with trust have been blown. But i have handled it all pretty good i think.
