I've also been to a therapist twice now. Have another appt with her in about two weeks. Other than the Effexor XR, just stayed home for 3 weeks, and did some walking a few times a week.
Really was great to get away from work for awhile. I work in I.T., and I find that depression and anxiety and stress had really badly effected my concentration, memory, and ability to retain info. I was increasingly feeling like I couldn't do my job, and was more and more reclusive after work. I really was at the end of my rope, and something had to give.
Today was first day back to work. I'm still not really feeling up to it. I'm hoping the Effexor will kick in. Think this is day 20, but only day 5 on 150 mgs. I definitely had a fair bit of anxiety today at work. Felt fine once I left. If I can just get somebody to pay me for not working, I think I'll have this depression thing licked :-)
