nyota Posted October 2, 2007 Share Posted October 2, 2007 I've been lurking around the boards for a few weeks, and I thought it was time to stop being a wallflower and step up with a firm, hearty handshake. Hi. Let's see... I've been treated for depression, semi-successfully (meaning I do get out of bed, but I'm still not thrilled about it), for about 15 years. I very painfully made it through school and a couple of degrees, constantly wondering how I could let things get so bad. Now I'm getting the message that it may have been ADD all along, which is very interesting and maybe puts a whole new spin on things - except that I've tried 4 stimulants in just over a month and I'm still stuck sitting on the couch crying and agonizing over all the things I'm not doing. As usual, it all feels like a chaotic mess where I let everything worthwhile just sort of slip away. And I want to try to get pregnant, which ideally means getting off most meds entirely - and that's scary. Well, anyway, I think this site is great; informative and occasionally even hilarious. So many strong people with all flavors of worry who respect their complicated brains and make me want to try harder. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
