I feel down all the time, VERY high anxiety, and I have a high pressure job so that doesnt help. My ex-wife cheated on me 6 months ago, we have 2 kids and now I'm living alone, and my depression is worse than ever. I havent seen a doctor but my mother has had the exact same feelings and gave me some 100mg tablets of zoloft to try out.
I am worried that it might not be the right medication for me... I should probably see a doctor first. I took one 100mg tablet 2 days ago but felt too scared to take another one last night...

Just called my mom, she said that she changed her mind (we were both a little bit drunk when she gave me the zoloft)
She wants me to see a doctor first... just so an actual doctor can confirm if I need it and what the dossage required is. I mean I cant just jump into the unknown and start taking 100mg a day I might REALLY do some damage.
I do take half a valium from time to time to help sleep, but I really think I need a therapist. I feel like the simplest things are IMPOSSIBLE to do (getting up, making food, eating, seeing my kids) And am tortured not by "voices" but by my own brain always worrying about whats going on....
I just want to be myself again. The past while I thought all I wanted was to get her back, but really she betrayed me so Im finished with her... I just want this depression to go away so I can MOVE FORWARD.
I try really really hard, I work every day despite this condition, and still... I guess its time to seek professional help. Ive never been evaluated before.
