Feeling like I'm going to lose it.

Just generally feel shaky, want to cry, not tired but want to go to bed.

Hate it when I feel like this. I am taking ad's I'm on 40mg escitalopram.

DH doesn't even have a clue how I'm feeling, if he did he would say 'wish I could help' but then does nothing to help.

Hi Lovemyshoes

Sorry you're feeling bad. Has anything kicked this off today?

Don't know what's kicked it off really, been fed up for a while but it's got worse today. Kids are in bed now and there is a shite film on tele.

I might go to bed.

maybe its because of school holidays?

How long have you been on the AD's? 40mg is quite a high dose. So sorry you feel like this. Speaking as someone who once suffered from depression, I know how you feel but thankfully am on the other side.

I did find that the AD's worked for me but after a while I needed to come off them and I actually felt better not taking them. Not advocating coming off your tablets of course because that could be dangerous but maybe you are adjusting to a new dosage or need it changing?

I am on my 2nd month of 40mg per day, school holidays aren't bothering me as such as I have been working. I have a weeks annual leave soon to spend with the dc which I am really really looking forward to
