Living in a small community, experienced all kinds of occupations, 2 colleges and 2 universities, out in the public with people now,, chronologically challenged just dont fit. Shy when it is centred on me but outgoing with anyone else. Uncomfortable about going places by myself. "How come she doesnt have a husband/boyfriend?" I know what I would do if the shoe was on the other foot but this area does not provide anyone to do that for me. Dr. put me on that drug but wondering if it really is appropriate for me.
We all do not fit the same mold. You are you and a good person, let people say what they want. You will only know if Escitalopram is appropriate for you if you try it and you feel better. It can take 4-6 weeks if not longer to reach a therapeutic level. But it could happen sooner. You can research the many antidepressants that are available. Maybe talk to your doctor that you are wondering if it is really appropriate for you.
Wishing you the Best :)
