This thread has been really informative. I did not
even know that there was such a thing as Atypical depression.
I've been seeing a therapist for a few months now and we have been
trying to determine what it is that I have. I am depressed,
yes but I just got out of a really trying relationship with a man
that I was very much in love with, but he was having major guilt issues
about leaving his former partner - he left her and she of course played
up the total victim and he is a co-dependent/rescuer and well anyway it
was really messed up but it has sent me into a depression that I can only
find very temporary relieve from - mainly from the bottle, but sometimes
from other sources like family/friends etc. Anyway, after reading so much
on the websites about all kinds of disorders, I've decided that I have them
all - Adult ADD, OCD, depresssion, anxiety attacks,perhaps maybe even bipolar
and now Atypical depression, which I think of the above describes me the best -
that and the ADD. And, I'm just kidding about thinking that I have them all
but I do think that I have stumbled across something on this website with the
atypical depression. It describes me rather well and my ex too, believe it or
not. Anyway, I have tried with little success, buspar, paxil (did try long
enough), xanax, and zoloft (only a few days). I took it for two days and felt
really anxious or something - it was just uncomfortable and at the time I think
I was suffering more from anxiety and fear of the unknown (of how my relatioship
was going to go) so I decided to quit, but now that I'm more depressed than
anything else and just a little bit anxious I'm wondering if I should try the zoloft
again. Also, is it good for atypical D and if so, is a rush characteristic of zoloft
in the first week. I really want a cure for this illness whatever it is and I have
pretty much been living with it my whole life.
