TG, I too am really having a hard time and I did go on a AD even though my last one was hell getting off and I swore I wouldn't do it again but I got in exactly the place you are now. I must admit it is helping with the anxiety. Not totally because a trigger can set off a panic attack but I can control them to an extent. The depression or despair at the bottom of the pit is not so bad, it is better or manageable. I think I could get it better if I increase the dosage where the neuro said I could go but for now I am leaving it alone. I have some relief not all I could probably get but little side effects. No weight gain, in fact I am left with no appetite. So for now I am better than I was. My T is supportive of this AD but only in the short term. I will eventually taper off. That is another reason to stay low. I must admit although I didn't want anything it has helped. Just an FYI for you to consider as a different point of view. I am journeying to the deepest recessions of my mind for all that happened to me as a child and I know it was ugly I just don't have the memories. I have dissociated for so long I have no memories of most of my past and my T says I have been depression all my life. And anxiety ridden and not medicated for it. So really I do understand where you are. I have thought more about suicide than ever . So far now that this AD is working. Which is good. Anyway, I hope you find your way. I wish I had more advice I can offer much support. This is tough but you are strong. I feel that all of us are stronger than we actually realize. Take care, rk
