Ive been suffering from disgusting/intrusive/ obsessive thoughts, depression, and anxiety for about a month now and it's ruining my life. Reality is blurred and I'm starting to question what is real. I'm completely hopeless and alone, like I'm the only one who has dealt with this. I've already be hospitalized and have a therapist but nothing's help, in fact it's getting worse. My therapist and psychologist are both suggesting I start taking Zoloft. If you have any experience with this, please share your story with me, I'm desperate for help
Hi, meg! Believe me ~ you are not alone. For the sake of your sanity you really should try what the doctors are recommending. Others here will tell you the same because we've all been in the same boat. You may find that it helps you back to a normal life. I wish you all the best! WC
I can relate to your experience except the depression... I thought no one can help my intrusive thoughts.. And for a for a few weeks it did get overwhelming... I never took medicine before that... But i knew i needed some help... So i went to a pychiatrist and he started me off on fluxoetine... At first if felt like everything got worse... But then whola! The thoughts dissapeared as I was very joyus with everything... My life resumed.. Im telling you it was airacle drug to me... I was ocd free for almost 4 years... But me like a dummy stopped taking my medicine because I was feeling really good and i did not see any need for medicine... Now i am experiencing stronger anxieties and insomnia... But it was my fault for getting off it without the consent o a doctor
Hi megla. I have been on zoloft 200mgs for 5 wks now. Yet to see any improvement with my anxiety but seems to work for the ocd side. Everyone is different though. My psych says I need to give it more time. If I was you I would give it a try. Try and keep yourself busy which I know can be difficult when you have no motivation.
