i have been off anti-depressants for a few months. my psychiatrist said maybe i dont need them and to go ahead and try it without. i'm ok, but then again...not really. i always feel on the verge of tears. i am very anxious about lots of things and worry incessantly. it is hard to enjoy things because of my sadness. Although i dont have much to be sad about. my physical limitations make me sad. i am almost always in pain....my back/neck/shoulder/arm/head. many days i am nauseated. i go through the days and do the best i can.....work....play....tend to my kids....but it is hard, everything is always so damn hard. sometimes i get tired of it. i have no patience for any type of minor illness that comes my way because it is all i can do to manage with the routine aches and pains that accompany me each day.i am strongly considering going back on an antidepressant. what the hell.....i take so many medications anyway.
