Shelley- I identify so much with what you've written. I'm new to this website - I 've only been coming here about two weeks, I think. I just feel like I have no one to talk to that understands what I'm going through. Finding this website by accident was a godsend. Everyone here seems to know so much about depression and all the meds and terms, and I feel kind of stupid cause I don't know all this stuff, but I'm learning.

I feel embarrassed that I'm seeing a psychiatrist. I feel like I should be able to get off all the drugs and just handle my life like everyone else. There really isn't even anything wrong with my life - a lot of it is just the way I respond to stress. I've got a lifelong problem with overreacting to everything. Now I'm trying celexa too. I start on 20 mg tomorrow. I'm praying that it won't have awful side effects like all the other ad's I've been on. I feel like there's something wrong with ME because I have weird strong reactions to every drug the dr tries me on. When I even make an attempt to go off the drugs, I just cannot sleep. Forget the depression and anxiety, which are bad enough, but the insomnia is enough to drive me out of my mind. I can't take another six or seven hour stretch in bed trying to sleep. I just can't take it.

Anyway, I don't mean to keep going on about this, but thanks for writing. Good luck with the celexa.
