I have been struggling with depression for about 10 years and Ill be honest, its exhausting.  I have been on MANY different anti depressants, currently I am taking Cymbalta.  However, even though I am on medication lately with some of the stress Ive been under I can feel myself slipping into what I like to call a "rut".  This is when I get down and no matter what I do, no matter how hard I try I cant seem to get myself out of it.  Sometimes this will result in me staying in bed for days at a time just getting more and more depressed.

Well I took Effexor for a while but it ruined my sex drive...which for me, is a problem lol So thats when I switched to Cymbalta which helps most of the time but every now and then I see that "other side" of me come out...luckily my wonderful boyfriend has learned how to deal with it. <br />
And as far as me doing stuff to get out of bed, I do most of the time, its just when i get into my ruts when its hard. I felt myself slipping into one the other day bc of stress and my boyfriend is in the Army so hes been having to work a lot and it made me upset but luckily I got up and ran some errands and was able to pull myself out of it.
