... me. I was able to really enjoy life and was able to handle all that life threw at me. Last summer around the anniversary of my daughter's birth/death I found that I just was not bouncing back the way i had in the past. I felt depressed and anxious. Kind if tingly and uneasy and kept waking up early which is so not me. In November The doctor started me out on 150 of Wellbutrin and I kept taking the 20mg of Celexa. We ended up increasing to 300mg of Wellbutrin in the morning and 20mg of Celexa in the evening. That really seemed to do the trick and I was feeling really good. We stayed on that until April and she suggested I could wean off the Celexa, we did it really slowing and it seems to handle it really well. I did start noticing in late May that I was waking up early again, but didn't put two and two together. At the same time my father got sick. It was a roller coaster ride for 5 weeks, but he passed away in late June. During this time my daughter that lived with me, moved across country. So I had two big events at the same time. I really thought I was doing ok, but after my Dad's funeral I really started to spiral down. I finally talked to my doctor again and we are starting back on the celexa 20mg today. I am really hoping that works! Thanks for letting me vent, i needed it
Hi, saparsells! It sure seems that you have an excellent grasp on your medications and how your life events are affecting your mental health. Good for you! It's also good to see that you have a doctor who is working with you to keep you as stable possible.
As far as *venting*, always feel free. We're happy to listen and give what encouragement we can. :-)
Best regards, Wildcat
saparsells; You really do sound like you are handling it pretty well. You have had a lot to deal with but just remember You like myself and many others this is a chronic thing and it is best to stay on the medication then the rollercoaster ride up and down and I swear you will feel better much better in the long run. Best of luck to you and know you can always come back here for some help from those of us that have had this for years. And so sorry for the loss of your dad and your daughter being so far away for now. Just take it a day at a time. chuck
