Recently i was diagnosed with severe depression.
I was on anti depressants again for a while but now i just seem to be immune to them. I get these feelings where nothing seems real and i have to think about everything i said cuz i can’t seem to remember anything. I feel like life is pointless and I have completely lost all hope in everything… I was fine for a while but all of a sudden i just got the feeling that im going insane and i cant remember anything… can anyone help me or give some advice???

You need to find a hobby that takes your mind of everything. Even something as simple as reading can help.
reading does help a little. but as soon as i stop, those feelings come back :(
yes, he said he’ll have to monitor my behaviour or something to see if i need a higher dosage
Is there anything in particular that is making you feel this way? Anything causing you stress?
not at the moment but i was in jail recently for accidentally assaulting someone. lol. that could be it…
When I get stressed out and depressed I go to the park and walk the trails alone.
It makes everything that is bothering me seem like it doesn’t matter and that it will pass and that I will
be a stronger person for dealing with whatever it is and going on with life.
Makes me feel like I’m not drowning in all of the thoughts that stress me out,
its a good feeling to get away from it all and breath.
I feel the same way and hope to get help soon . I’m on wellbutrin and it seems to mellow my mood swings. I found native people cree and ojibwe to be very helpful in the spirit circle. Sometimes I feel I,m in the wrong place living in niagara falls,CANADA.I lived in Montreal before and felt at home there. I find the french have more joie de vie. Please correspond with me to find solutions. I find going into the woods, forest,lakes gives me some joy. It really helps me that my parents are in the area. I think because we depend on computers to do everything for us we lose ourselves. I’m still looking for myself…..AMOUR…LUV….ALAN
Lol accidently assaulting someone. Perhaps thats it. Do you feel liek you’ve let anybody down, including yourself. Have you considered counselling.
it would help if we had some woods or forests here. :0
:S Why’s that?
no there was no court case or anything cuz when he found out i had a counter claim he dropped the charges against me. lol. i dunno why this happened. i wasn’t stressed or anything
10mg of lexapro
ok. thanks for the advice
I have the same issue, except my doctor said that my nerve endings are so burnt off from being under critical stress for 5 years straight that I can no longer properly process seratonin or endorphins correctly, rendering feelings of physical happiness impossible, even if good things happen to me… *hugs* Find a reason…
I have known anti-depressants to throw people’s emotional balance out the window. You need to find more people to hang out with. What are you doing? If you’re a student then take some classes that would make you do group activities, if you’re working do something beyond your usual work hours that will make you connect to more people. I have found good friends to be the best cure for depression
