so i'm finally seeing my doc next wed to discuss how i've been feeling down for the past 3 yrs. i've been hesitant about seeking help thinking it was just me and i could make myself happy but i can't take it anymore. i don't have fun doing ANYTHING anymore, i don't sleep b/c i can't turn my brain off, i always just feel sad and i'm never happy. its causing a lot of stress in my relationship with my husband. So my question is, how many of you take antidepressants and how did it change your life? did you have any side affects? i'm really worried about weight gain and a decrease in sex drive. i just can't go on with my life anymore the way i'm feeling. i want to enjoy life. right now i just don't have motivation to do anything and everything feels like it takes so much effort to do.
