This is my worst time of year also. Actually from between March until August. My suicide attempt have always been in spring or summer. I also have had depression for 10 years. I've been on and off too many medications to count. Some have helped, but nothing ever really got rid of my anxiety/fear which I really felt I couldn't face another season of.
As a last attempt my Psychiatrist suggested a low dose of Zyprexa, about two weeks ago. Its been a miracle. It hasn't made me just so numb I feel nothing, its actually made me feel well, and things are in perspective. I really thought there was nothing left for me.
I would definately suggest it, but even if its not something you want to try, I want to at least offer you hope, because to say I was at the end of my rope is an understatement.
I'm sending you good thoughts, please check back and let us know how you are.
