brokenrecord Posted February 13, 2009 Share Posted February 13, 2009 I came across this board when looking for information on Lexapro which I was just prescribed yesterday. I was told I was clinically depressed in my teens and had always ignored it, I am now in my mid 30's and it seems to be destroying my life, I'm doing sloppy work at my job, my wife wants me to leave (in all fairness I threatened to leave first about 4 months ago). I have repetitive though patterns, dwell on everything, hate myself, am constantly explaining my actions to people, write out long angry e-mails to people over the smallest things, have a short temper and hear that a lot of people think I'm an asshole, and I seem to constantly seek validation and can only remember feeling happy when someone pays a lot of attention to me (or focuses all their attention on me) if I had a dime for every time someone told me "everything is not about you" I'd be a millionaire. So, here I am, now seeing a therapist and on my second day taking Lexapro, which so far feels like a caffeine buzz. Hi everyone. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
