Go back on your meds; you shouldn't have attempted to do this withour your GP's supervision. Go back on them, and you might also try doing that I *originally* said below to try an calm yourself down. If you do or if you don't doesn't matter, what DOES matter is that you to straight back onto your med.s</b><br />
<br />
Sit down, even if you have to force yourself to do so. Close your eyes, relax your body starting at your toes, concentrating really hard. Then your feet, your lower leg ... all the time keeping relaxed what you have worked on. Breath nice and slowly and work your way up your body relaxing yourself in small portions. It's hard to do if you have never done it before, but you should try it. Relaxing your body whilst you are feeling as you do is to claim it back; think about that as you relax yourself ... you are claiming it back under your control.<br />
<br />
I'm so sorry that you are feeling so bad.<br />

Get some rest, observe the sadness, nervousness and anxiousness without judging them if you can. They should go away after a few days long enough for you to see that other emotions possible. Get some exercise, call a friend, talk to people here on EP. If possible, change your location even if just for a few days. <br />
<br />
If the above doesn't help and you've given it a couple of weeks, you might want to reconsider the meds. Sometimes a person's brain chemistry isn't able to compensate on its own. There's no dishonour in continuing them.<br />
<br />
I went off mine about a year ago and even though there are days that are pretty appalling, overall I'm glad I did. I used to assume that happy was our normal state. I've come to understand that it's learning to deal with everything life throws us, good and bad, and if I can do it without the meds, great. That doesn't mean however, that I think meds are a waste of time. They did help me through a rough period and I'm glad that the option is there.<br />
<br />
I wish you the best and I hope you find a balance that works for you. :-)

Try to keep busy. Do you have an animal? Play with them. That helps with depression. Do you have any hobbies? If not, find some. I looked at your profile to try and help you. Go out. Get way from your husband. (If he doesn't help with your depression) Take your children to Chuck E Cheese. That should definitely keep you busy. lol Take a nap before you do all of this if you are tired. Go on Amazon. Type in Rescue Remedy spray. That stuff works! I take it before I go to bed and it really helps me with my depression. I hope this helps...........

Why did you go off your medication?

Best Answer

I just wanted to feel some emotions...I've been on medication for 6 years. I felt ok...I thought I'm gonna be ok, but I am not and I don't want to go back on medication. How can I fight depression?

Best Answer

With the information you are putting out now ... then you *need* to go back onto your medication. It takes time and you can feel OK from anywhere between a few hours or a few days, but sooner or later you body will be in denial. Go back onto your medication and to visit your GP; you should *NOT* be doing this without being supervised; you have more chance of hurting youself than you have of feeling better. Take youe meds as you would had you not come off them! ~F~
