Take it off your chest...
Read Rules

When I was a teenager I was very depressed because... well I was a teenager. I was alone in the world, no friends, no one loved me. So I went to the free clinic and got a script for an anti-depressant called Selexa/Citalopram. This thing didn't make me feel better. It made me numb, So numb I could not write creatively so I quit doing music. So tired I fell asleep in class so I quit college, so spaced I couldn't hold a job. Than it made my shoulder length 90s rock star hair fell out and I gained 50 lbs. I did miraculously find a woman and get married and lose my virginity at age 24. She wanted me to get off it. It was beginning to make me impotent. After 3 years clean I lost all the weight, I'm back in school with a 4.0 GPA, I'm doing well at work, and sex. It pisses me off that I didn't quit sooner. This medication was garbage. It doesn't fix depression, only finding what I lacked my whole life did that. Love. Now I have a better life than I ever dared to dream of.

  • When medicated, sometimes you can not make good decisions because you are inhibited.

  • That's what depression meds do. They don't make you happy, they just level you out. For some it's better than the pain, for others it's not.
