Severe Depression....

I was diagnosed with Severe Depression almost 2 years ago...the reason I went to the doctor for it was because I started hearing voices. I could never really make out what they were saying...it was just a lot of noise. It got so bad though...to the point where I couldn't focus on anything...I couldn't even have a conversation with someone because I couldn't hear them over the noise in my head. Nothing seemed to help. And at night I couldn't sleep...all I could do was sit on the end of my bed and rock...and cry. I started taking anti-depressants and the voices went away.

I'm not taking the pills now and to be honest it's a little scary. But I'm watching myself...very closely...I don't ever want to go through that again but I hate pills and would rather not be on them ya know. So I'm seeing if I can and hoping I can make it without the pills...wish me luck.

I hear voices too but mine talk & shout at me sometimes they make noises too. Anyway I'm really scared to tell the doctor because I don't want to be put on medicine because it may make me slower when it comes to thinking. What do you think I should do?

Good luck. My advice is that if you begin to hear the voices again that you go back on the meds and if you can't stand the ones you were on, maybe try another kind. There are a lot of good drugs out there these days. I wouldn't be able to survive without them, but if you can make it, more power to you!
