Contemplating suicide

I have both dp and anhedonia. I guess both are connected. SSRI use (which I took for social anxiety) is what triggered them. I'm extremely devastated. I thought by going back on an SSRI, they'd resolve. Instead, It made them much worse. Wellbutrin did not do shit. I feel my life ended here. I was a successful motivated person but now I'm very dysfunctional. Dp is affecting my abiliy to drive. I'm ashamed of myself. What I'm gonna say if my relatives ask why I'm not driving? I swear if I don't find a med for this, I will kill myself.

How long did you take the ssri, and how long have you been off it? Protracted withdrawals are fairly common from long term antidepressant use, with such symptoms as yours, but many people get better with time.
About 7 years. I've been of them for 3 months. I know it gets better with time (several months-years I read) but how would I be able to support myself during all this? I was like a mad bitchh during withdrawal. I can't let even a day pass me by doing nothing and not enjoying life. It is 24/7 torture. :cry:
