I know I need to take it. I am so scared. I don't want to be dependent on a drug for my sanity but even more I want to be able to take care of my daughter and function.
I also am so worried about gaining weight. I sound selfish.
I guess I am just looking for some "been there, overcame that" kind of support.
BTDT :) Zoloft worked really well for me, I had some weird symptoms and anxiety when I started and when I weaned off 8 months later. Overall it was such a positive experience, I wish I had started taking it sooner...
Thanks everyone! I am on day 2 and so far so good. I am so happy I decided to finally take medication. Even if for the time it is placebo, I am feeling much better about it all!
I was concerned about taking it at first, too, but it made my life significantly better and it allowed me to build an awesome relationship with DS because I was finally feeling able to cope with myself and him again.
I didn't gain any weight during the time I took it, but I also didn't lose any. Other than that and headaches early on I didn't have any side effects. When I weaned Zoloft after 10 months, it was much less worse than I expected, too.
Try not to think about being dependent on the drug, but view the the drug as a means supporting your ability to lead a life that is fulfilling to you and your daughter. GL.
