well im new here so i figured id get my story out there. I was diagnosed with clinical depression at the beginnning of this year. I had depression before that but i never had enough courage to ask my dad to let me see a doctor. I was diagnosed in a mental hospital where i spent a week do to the fact that i wrote a journal of how i felt for a week and my therapist said i had to go there immediatly. The journal basically talked abotu how i was going to kill my family and kids at my school then kill myself and the whole deal. AFter that I was out of the hospital for about 8 weeks and was taking 10mg of lexapro with mild success. I then tried commiting and was re admited to the hospital for another week. They uped my dose of lexapro and put me on an anti psychotic for psychotic symptons, I was hearing voices and I was not responded to things with the right emotions. I was also diagnosed with anxiety but not pout on any meds. I was then realeased and recently I have been experiencing severe DR experiences do to my increased stressz and anxiety lately. I am not taking any anxiety meds now but plan on talking to my doctor next week. I also suffer from compulsive eating which today is my first day of recovery after ballooning from 180lbs to 202lbs in a month. Im starting a diet today and hopefully i can become healthier. Well thats my story any comments or related experiences are welcome thx for reading.
