    Any time! I hope it all works out... Mental illnesses are a PITA. And people who don't understand make it seem a lot worse than it can be...

    Btw just an update on my end... No baby yet, but my DP and I finally have a house! Only downfall is we can't move in till march as it's being occupied... So 3 or 4 more weeks with us living cramped and then freedom! With the ability to have things the way we want, not how my mum wants! So excited!

    I suffer from GAD & depression. I'm on 75mg of effexor & doing CBT, have been on effexor for around 6 weeks & it has made a dramatic difference but the day I got AF - it feels like I've taken a step back with the depression - very upsetting as I was doing so well - I'm also on the depo. Does anyone know its normal for AF to make depression worse ? Should I ask the doctor to increase the meds or just wait & see how I feel when the bleeding stops ? Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    It can. I would give your meds another month to see if it helps, unless your depression is severe. If it's really bad, talk to your Dr now and put your mind at ease.

    I know that my moods act up whenever I'm on any contraception that involves hormones, and being pregnant has really not helped my case. Lol. But I have bipolar and borderline.

    Hope this helps. We are all here to support each other, especially through the cr@ppy days

    Yes my depression hits new lows around AF. I would find myself feeling so down and bawling my eyes out for no reason.. Eventually i worked out it was always around that time.
    I'm on zoloft. The first couple of months i was on it i experienced the same depression around AF but it's actually seemed to eased off the longer i've been on them. Hopefully this will be the case for you too.

    Dh's mood has been up and down a lot this last week.
    Really happy then really down and quiet in short periods of time...
    I thinking starting to play on my health this time too... I have already Beebe to a psychologist to deal with my anxiety about the situation but feel like it's differerent, like I'm stressed or something-clenching my teeth a lot and getting headaches.
    Does anyone have say good relaxation techniques I could try?
