going back on Zoloft

597 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  cheyennemama
I met w/my therapist again today, I go once a week and we decided that I need to go back on Zoloft. I'm dealing with a lot of cra* from my ex-dh. and am truly feeling depressed/overwhelmed/anxious etc. I've been unable to sleep too..

I'm feeling so isolated right now. Ex still controls a good portion of my life, he's harrassing me nearly everyday, and that's really upsetting me right now. Not to mention the fact that I don't have any family here in CO and just a few "new" friends, I don't want to overwhelm them with all the junk that's going on in my life right now.

I sit here typing this in tears.. I just need to get some sense of control in my life, no matter how big or small that maybe..

WOW! Hugs to you. Hang in there.

I know great people who are on meds. similar to that - you have no reason to feel bad or funny - it does not sound like you do. That is great. If this will help you get through some of this stuff, then I am with you. If it is a lifelong choice, then that is great too.

I actually started on birth control pills to help regulate my ups and downs and it has helped me immensely - not to mention my face is not breaking out anymore!!!!

It is a lot of adjustments and cr*p we have to endure when making major life changes.

Keep up the good work and hang in there! Green
Hope all the crap lets up soon
I think you could find some sympathetic listeners here.

just know it's raining here (tears, pain) too, but remember after the rain stops the sun always shines... take the zoloft until the sunshines in.

I hope that the Zoloft will help. I have been on meds since I was pregnant due to marital stress/situational depression and it really has been key for me, in addition to therapy.
Keep yourself strong, know that you control your life no matter how it feels like your ex does-you control how you feel, what you say and what you do. Forget about him and what he is doing and worry about you and your kids. Reach out where you can, I found once I seperated from my husband, there were outlets for single moms, LLL even led me to some great single mom friends...there are people out there and surround yourself with who you can find and in the meantime come here. Hang in there mama.
Jenn S- hugs to you!

I'm on Prozac but didn't refill my prescription the other day because I feel great. I don't know if I should continue it or what! (Not that I'm expecting YOU GALS to tell me. LOL) Good to see a lot of other people are in the same situation. I just feel it helped me get through the very rough times and I should adjust to not having it anymore. ?????
