I have been down that road all my life. I was dagnosed at the age of 16 and am 34 now and still struggle. Been through years of theraphy and medication. Right now I am in a rut but it helps to have someone that you are close to. A family member, spouse or a friend. Being alone is not a good thing and though you may want to be alone at times, all the time is not healthy. Try a support group either in person or online like here.View Thread

I have been suffering for depression most of life. I was diagnosed at 17 and I am 34 now. I have been to theraphy and been on meds. I have been in a relationship for 8 years but depression is the cause of a lot of things gone wrong. I struggle every day and just want to not have to struggle with depression. within the last year i have moved to another state and have been lonely. i do not have friends and it seems like any friends i had in life ended up turning against me. i am tired of theraphy and meds but not sure what else to do. there have been times where i thought about suicide and i attempted it once. I don't know where to go.View Thread
I was taking Effexor for a few years and when I tried to stop cold turkey, I went through withdrawal. I was a bit nasueated and felt off -almost like a headache but not quite. I have been off Effexor for about a month now and I weaned myself off. One week i would take it every day, the next week every other day and finally one week where I went three or more days without taking it. It can take about a month or two for it to leave your system but everyone is different and it also depends on how long the drug was being taken. hope it helpsView Thread
I was on Wellbutrin and Zoloft years ago but not at the same time but I had awful side affects. I am also in a long term relationship and fear that it will destroy it since my significant other is at her wits end and really does not want to deal with it anymore.View Thread
Psychotherapy can only help but so much and after awhile I just don't want to talk about it. Have tried at least 4 different meds and I am currently on Abilify and Effexor XR 150mg( 2 pills once a day).
Is there anything other kind of therapy that may help?View Thread
I was officially diagnosed in 1996 with clinical depression and have been seeing a therapist as well as taking Effexor XR. I am currently looking for a new therapist because the one I had left the company and trhe one she went to does not take my insurance. I have also had Abilify prescribed within the last month. Because I have such horrible mood swings and a friend said I may be bipolar which I am not, leads me to believe that there is something else going on. I tried to commit suicide once in 2001 and promised my mother that I would not ever attempt it again but there are times where I think about it.View Thread
