  1. How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    A bit relieved because I resolved temporarily some massive stressors in my life. Also, I haven't been sleeping so last night I broke down and took 1/2 of a tablet of Remeron which I've been off for a while. Wow, did I sleep! I slept all night very well and all evening this evening. Debating whether to take another 1/2 tablet tonight. I have a MASSIVE sleep debt.
  2. whatever the weather

    Humid with occasional heavy rain. Tropical weather.
  3. I think the anxiety you are experiencing is most likely your own endogenous anxiety will a little bit added in from the Effexor start up. Effexor is not going to do much at 37.5 mg. You need to be on a therapeutic dose before you can judge whether the Effexor is helping or not. 37.5 mg is not generally considered a therapeutic dose.
  4. Hello Black80 and welcome to CB! I'm sorry about your dad. That really hurts, I know. You are describing some fairly typical depression symptoms, and I encourage you to find a psychiatrist if you don't have one. Therapy is helpful too. It can get better because my life got MUCH better when I found the correct meds. Not saying you would need to be on meds long, but you need a lift out of the abyss. I'm glad you found us, and there are many of us here who can relate. I look forward to seeing you posting. Welcome again!
  5. I wish I had some good advice for you, but I have the same problem. It probably won't be feasible for you, by I found out by happenstance that stimulants improve my confidence. It kind of goes against conventional wisdom which is that stimulants increase anxiety, but it works for me. The only problem is whether your doctor would be willing to go that route.

    I'm sorry you are feeling no better and that the hospital and doctors didn't help you. Hang in there and don't give up. Please!
  7. I'd just like to remind people that this is a first person site, and it is not a site for picking up friends for third parties. If your friend has mental illness issues, she is more than welcome to join us and post for herself.
  8. I'd like to repeat that, like notloki, I didn't feel anything until I was on 10 mg.
  9. whatever the weather

    Very, very humid again today.
