A Legacy of Depression

Hello everyone. I have suffered from depression since childhood but was not officially diagnosed with it until I was in my mid-20's. I currently take Zoloft to manage it. Depression is an old friend of the family. My mother along with several other relatives have depression as well, some treated for it and some not. Right now I'm having a really hard time with it, partly because I reduced my dosage of Zoloft to make my pills last a little longer. I knew when I first started doing that that it would be a mistake. My relationships are suffering and I'm finding it more and more difficult to function when I'm at home. I keep waiting for it to pass but I don't think it's going to unless I go back to taking my original dosage amount.

Thanks so much for your supportive comments. I feel the need to cry right now but I can't. I hate feeling this way and I can't do it anymore. Tomorrow I'm going back to my 150mg!

I've done the same thing to make my pills last longer. It doesn't help you in the long run. I hope that you get to feeling better!<br />
