hi anne,
yes, I guess any break up would be hard for anyone-it just seemed to hit me bad-on top of the other things. How did you feel after your break-up? Did you go on meds shortly after? I gained a lot of weight pretty much because I had been so active all my life-then BAM stopped and devoted my time to my fiance.
May I ask what you went to school for? Grad School!! That is so awesome-what did you major in?
As for sports, I played Volleyball, ran Track, Tennis, Soccer, and danced. It really makes me so damn depressed because now and for about 12 years, I am living in a body that isn't mine. I miss those sports and all the activity. I miss the feeling of thin. I am not meant to be a heavy girl! When I was in high school, team sportsmnaship was required, but I had fun also, as I've gotten older, I have become lazy and have the attitude that -well, I don't have to do it, so I won't-same thing happened with me towards colllege. I'm almost done with that BA, because I have hung in there through all this stuff. lol I am going to try Lindora and see how much that is-to help me along. I have a lot of deep-seated issues that I know affect the weight so I have to work out those also.
Yep, I have felt happy days, usually when I am living on my own, no pressure from my mom, and when I'm busy, and of course, on the right meds.
I have found in all of this that Effexor, Seroquel, and Klonopin are the only thing that seem to help me. Celexa did at one time, but I have a problem with med compliance but I am getting better at that!
I want to make a point here. I was on meds before and my life was different. I was seeing a guy, etc. what I mean is that meds aren't going to solve my unhappiness, and I'm glad that I realize that. I wish I didn't have to be on meds, but I guess I do. I have had a hard time accepting that-a very hard time.
Anyway, sorry for a rather long post, did you like basketball? I never played that sport. I love to play sports though:-)
All the best, Kristen

> hi Kristen-
> Iknow how you feel about living with your parents. It is so relieving in a way but also you feel like such a loser. I lived in chicago for 6 years ( went to undergrad and 2 yrs grad schoool there) and then just last month the depression caused me to move back to a really small town and live with my parents. It is quite a change, esp considering i have no friends here so i either hang out by myslf or with my parents.. fun :)
> Your experience with your fiance reminds me of a horrible period of depression i suffered after breaking up with a long term boyfriend - it was the first time i had really neem dpressed. I couldnt function and have never really been the same since.
> I am sorry to here about the other illnesses you suffer from. That must be really rough. I hope you are doing allright. Have youever felt back to normal or have happy days? I hope the lexapro can do something for you. You dont deserve to feel bad or have these things happen to you.
> Jus twondering .. what sports did you play? I played basketball.
