Saw my doctor today

As I’ve mentioned before, I struggle with a variety of mental health problems. I’ve really gotten bad lately so I had to make an appointment to go in. He ended up switching my anti-depressant from Remeron (that stuff made me feel so much worse) to Celexa. I’ve been on it before, but he said I’ve been on everything else. I’ll try it again and see what happens.

I was supposed to go see War of Ages tonight, but after having so much anxiety all day over the doctor appointment, I’m drained. Plus I’m having some car trouble. I don’t feel safe driving that far until I get it checked out. I just want to relax tonight, I have stuff I have to do tomorrow (laundry, grocery shopping). It’s been really hard doing things since I was on that Remeron, it made me just want to not leave the apartment. I hope I start feeling better but it can take a month for the medication to fully get into my system. Here’s hoping.

  1. I hope that the medication change will help you! I am with you in that it can take a while. I was recently on a medication that did not work for me and was having a lot of negative effects, I had to change back to one I was on before and took a while to adjust.

  2. I struggle with mental health problems as well. I was actually in a hospital for four days several years ago because it which was…intense but very much needed (plus I was able to be assigned an amazing psychiatrist). I started out on Zoloft which eventually made me sick after being on it for a year. I was prescribed Celexa and, honestly, I never noticed a difference being on it either way. I was then put back on Zoloft but I realized that, while I do suffer from depression, I don’t believe I was depressed enough to be on an anti-depressant right now (that definitely wasn’t the case the last four years though!) My problem right now lies more in my anxiety and panic attacks. I don’t see my psychiatrist until February because he’s reenlisted in the army as the main psychiatrist and he won’t be out until January :(

    I hope everything starts to get better for you :)
