I'm posting this to show others who may be struggling that AD's can be a really good thing.
My depression began after my first miscarriage. I piled on the weight, cried frequently and was very very unhappy. I then endured another miscarriage which sunk me deeper. I had relief from my symptoms during my pregnancy and the first 6 or so months after DS was born but around 7 months things got on top of me and I struggled with almost everything in my life. I became really anxious after realising I had to go back to work, I couldn't keep my house in order, I struggled with DS and my relationship with DH suffered greatly.
I knew something had to be done so I went to the GP. My edinburgh score was 22 so things were really bad for me. I've been on Citalopram for just over 4 weeks now and life has gotten so much better. I can smile again, work was a breeze and I didn't even cry leaving DS with my mum when I had been bawling in the weeks leading up to it. I'm coping with everything so much better and while things aren't perfect, it has been such a huge improvement.
I just thought I'd share my story to show that things can get better!

Well done on taking charge and going to the GP. Sometimes that is a really difficult step to make
I am amazed at how much anti-depressants turned my life around as well.
Thanks for sharing

Fantastic news. I've taken Citalopram for anxiety during 2 phases in my life and both times it has been life changing. Well done for looking after yourself and taking that step - sounds like you're doing really well.
