    Trying Not to Look Back

    Even now @ the age of 30 I thought these feelings were passed me. I thought they were gone & I am cured. But I am not. When these feelings come back they come back hard & strong. What is worse about it now is that I have tagged on more responsibilities which I cannot lose...

    So I am increasing my zoloft

    because I am too anxious lately. I've been using my anti anxiety medication more often and to me that's a sign I am not on the right dose. I titrate up and down by 100mg or so depending on my response. Lately I have been getting more anxious. Maybe it's spring or my healthy diet...

    I used to cut because I didn't know how to cope,

    then I thought I had gotten past every thing in my past, but now it's back with a vengeance...I just don't know what to do, all I want is to cut but I don't want it to come to that. Any ideas?

    It's been worse recently.

    ..but it has also gotten better (or less frequent anyway) but man when it hits...it nearly breaks me and I hate it. It's so difficult to try to struggle through those times. Especially when I already have such a difficult time communicating my emotions to my boyfriend. I know it...

    So every now and then I take these test just to

    I guess check up on myself, and I just took it, and this, made my day. Because it's the best I've ever done, and I was answering the questions honestly! Idk, when you've been depressed, stressed, and anxious it's just nice to not be for a bit.. 😊

    I looked up depressing pictures

    and now I'm pissed. The internet an a few others make a joke about it. Like the depressing comic book week. It makes me mad. You don't know how it feels unless you have it. It is not a laughing matter.

    Since I was a child, I've struggled with

    depression. I didn't know what it was until I was an adult and sought help from a psychiatrist. It took trial and error to find the right medications and dosages to relieve the sadness, fatigue and anxiety that had been part of my daily life. Now I look back after being...

    I feel myself falling again.

    ...I want to withdraw myself from the world around me. I want to neglect my duties as a wife and mother. It has the potential to destroy the life I have built with others. Just trying to stay in the light and keep reaching for the stars. Try not to let it drag me down.....

    Along with struggling with anxiety

    and depression...I was just diagnosed with OCD. I want her out. I want her gone. I want the drugs gone. I want the alcohol gone. I can not do it anymore. I am beginning to break again.

    Two years on from first being diagnosed

    and refusing to take meds, because I was sure I could sort this out myself. Well that hasn't worked and I went back to the doctors last week and he's prescribed two weeks worth of Sertraline (50mg). I've read the side effects, and a good few of the common ones look like they'd...

    I always feel so trapped at home.

    And everyone always put the blame on me for everything. I end up in my room all the time just so I don't have to feel like a failure. I don't know how to handle all my stress and anxiety. I feel physically sick from it.

    Always Have

    I remember in the 7th or 8th grade, trying to figure out why i felt so sad. Even stopped listining to my music because I thought that was the reason. I'm going through that same pattern again. I think I can overcome it though. In a different way then I did last time.
