Hi. I have been depressed for along time and I was really thinking I had to live with it. I am an Alcoholic and have been  sober for 9 years and I have hit my mid life and I have no joy. As of June 22nd have been diagnosed with Dysthymia and it all makes sense. I have done a lot of reading on this site and Hoping I can get some answers about my drugs and how I am feeling. Thanks!!    

 

 

*****And THEY have found a name for my Crazy.

I just want a little peace and joy.. :grin:

Hi beenthere... welcome to this world.

 

I too have the "pleasure" of the dysthymia dx, but my primary dx is MDD Recurrent ... basically means i feel no joy all the time and sometimes go from bad to worse then back to just bad again.

 

I'm also now taking bupropion (wellbutrin) ... how's that working for u? Not done much for me... yet. then again nothing does.

 

Anyhoo... hi.

Hi, Thanks for the Welcome.....

 

I probably should have been here along time ago, but I always thought, this will pass. I have been on Zoloft 200 mg in the past and then I took a holiday and then I went down hill. Its been 19 days on this med and still have ups and downs...I am going to see how it goes and give it some time. having a lot of different side effects on different days.....

Yes, I just came upon this place not long ago myself... lots of info!

 

And I've been dealing with this special brand of misery for a long time also, and sometimes i think i've have gotten used to it, so much so that it's hard to imagine actually improving my outlook on life and living, and would I even recognize that if it did happen. But I keep trying this and that, anyway.... in case I'm wrong.

 

If you put all your pasts meds and what else you've tried in your signature, then people here have a better idea what you've already tried and can better suggest alternatives.

Welcome, beenthere:

You picked a wonderful name for this site because, even though we all have different issues, we've all been there in the depths of depression, the highs of mania, the panic of anxiety or the self-medication with alcohol, drugs or food. That's why we all to try to help each other. I hope you find peace and joy here.

Other conditions: COPD, from smoking; fibromyalgia, which started as polymyalgia rheumatica; scoliosis with leg length discrepancy; hypertension and hypercholestremia, both now controlled by medication; extreme klutziness (I can trip over my shoelaces while I'm barefoot).

Prior Meds: Paxil CR,* Lexapro, Effexor (none of which seemed to do any better than the Paxil)

In youth, it was a way I had
To do my best to please,
And change, with every passing lad,
To suit his theories.

But now I know the things I know,
And do the things I do;
And if you do not like me so,
To hell, my love, with you!
