Hey guys, I've been on zoloft for about 10 weeks now and abilify for about 3 weeks. This combo has cleared the fog and given me a clear hope and feeling of inner peace. I've lived with anxiety for so long in my life that I don't know if I've ever known what normal is. As well as depression. I have tried many meds and usually give up around the 4 week mark but I think that has been my depression telling me its not working or going to work. This time I was patient with the zoloft and all the sudden its like my mind has been pieced back together.
Patience is key with meds guys. It's so hard I know to give yourself proper time and care when we feel like such shit all the time but that's really what you need for the meds to work. Be kind to yourself, keep hope that things will be ok and try to be optimistic that your med will work. I went to a job meeting today and felt connected to the lady and things went smoothly, I felt like myself.
I've been dealing with 5 years of chronic dp so I'm in quite the hole as far as my life goes but now I feel like I will be able to move forward and try to find something I will enjoy again. Don't let the depression that comes along with dp stop you from staying on your medication long enough for it to work.. That's my advice and good luck to all.
