For the last four months I have been dealing with anxiety and probably some depression. I have rumenated most of my life as well. My doc has advised me multiple times to go on Lexapro. I am seriously considering it but have some bad childhood memories of my mom being on an antidepressant. She became very insensitive and cut off from her emotions. She did not emphasize anymore. What are your experiences?

Thanks for everything everyone is sharing. It gives me a lot of hope.
