This should be a milestone post

So close to my 1 year mark. But man do I feel low. . .
2020 has been the worst come down ever.
I made it this far but I don’t know how to move forward.
Don’t know if I should see my doctor and maybe discuss about going back onto my antidepressants. But I dont want to be on medication again I made it so far without it.


Congratulations on your almost year!! I can relate to feeling off …I had the same feelings around a year or so…just couldn’t quite feel settled, anxiety was ramping up. I decided to go on antidepressants again to see if that helped. I went back on Lexapro for about 5 months and it helped me feel much less anxious…which continued after I tapered off them. I think for me I had lived my entire adult life being drunk or high on some substance …so I really did not have ANY baseline for what emotions felt like or how to process them or feel them. Taking that time on Lexapro allowed my body and nervous system to heal more and my brain as well. Anyway…it was a helpful experience for me.

please know it can and does get better and we can and do heal ourselves, body mind and spirit. You have so much to be proud of. :heart:

What do you think hurts, or what feels like is holding you back?

It’s been a rough year for sure. Props for sticking the thing out despite all that. :pray:

I struggled with isolating as part of my drinking, so this year has really tested my sobriety. But there are other ways to reach out, and at least sober I can remember to find them.

As for meds, it takes what it takes. No harm talking it out with the doc about where you’re at!

Thank you for sharing.
After crying at my dr for an hour he put me on a new antidepressant that hopfully will be better for the mood swings I’ve been having…
Its rediculious hes my biggest support compared to anyone close to me. If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t be here.

Looks like I’ll be back on meds for a long while now. Every time I try to come off I relapse so heres hoping it works and sticks this time.
