Makes you think

pills

Facebook thoughtfully told me that I posted the above photo a year ago, I had made a cheeky comment about the size of the tablet vs the tablet package, I sounded fairly upbeat.

But you see this photo also reminds me that a year ago today, I had just started on anti depressants and I had high hopes that I would be back in work fairly soon, but now its a year later and I am still in the same place. Lots has changed in the last year but lots has stayed the same

  1. I’m sorry the meds aren’t helping enough. Sometimes you have to try everything before you find the right thing.

  3. Been on mine since 2006. I still have crushing lows but bouts less frequent and depths not so deep. It takes more than meds though. Being of service to others , my arts and crafts stuff and reading a great deal has helped keep me “out of myself” which is a breeding ground for misery. Best wishes for your New Year.

    • I am not on anything at the moment, we were finding that they would work very quickly, and then I would build up an immunity to them and they would up the dose to the max and then we would have to start on a new drug

      • That’s difficult. Have no experience or advice on meds on this. But exercise and engaging activities help. Sometime I can’t to either and if I push myself at just little things it validates my efforts and fortifies. Key is try to avoid being immobilized.

      • We got a dog to make sure I would have to go out, if I don’t he goes nuts, I do have days when I really cannot do it, and in those times my partner steps up, but the dog (max) has been a very useful tool in helping me get out, along with my toddler as well 🙂
