I also believe my doctor had me on Zoloft at one pointFebruary 25, 2020 at 2:55 pm #339996
I’m glad to hear from you, then. I’ve only recently began Wellbutrin. Previously I was on Effexor, but found that I’d plateaued, and wasn’t reaching much further than managing.
I can’t really be certain how far meds will take me by themselves, but this is also pretty genetic in my family, and my mom has been very antidepressant positive because of the effect they’ve had in her life. It can be hard to get an unbiased opinion based on my own experience, hahaha.
To be honest, the whole previous relationship made me realize how on autopilot I’ve been. I’d be interested to hear your experience with all this.

You could be right. Meds I’ve taken in the past have put me into more numb states. Though, before them I felt too manic to consider dating at all. It’s a hard balance.February 20, 2020 at 8:01 pm #339208
It’s funny how this story still resonates. This week was the first time I had really pushed away someone who had real feelings for me. After months of trying to feel the right way about him and the way he treated me, I just knew I was feeling more anxious and depressed trying to hold it together. Today was the first day I felt the weight of what I was leaving behind, and began panicking about my choice and where we’ll be without each other. This was really the first time I’d tried to be with someone in a serious way in years. After college, depression kept me out of a lot of dating opportunities, so I already felt like I was making up for lost time.
I’m glad these posts stay up, because the advice works very much in my own situation as well, and I know I have to trust why it didn’t work and give myself adequate time to heal and learn from it. Before we’d started dating, I’d become really comfortable with being single and dating in the new age. Now though, I’m just disappointed in my inability to stay with someone kind and real.
