If you ever need a friend to vent to, you’re welcome to shoot me an email @ anonagencyfish@gmail.com. While I haven’t been in your exact situation, I’ve been on (and off) practically every antidepressant on the market, so I’m super familiar with the rollercoaster of emotions. Sending you lots of fishbowl hugs 🤗

That’s really rough. Good luck. Expect some lingering side effects. But enjoy the life experience you’re going through. It’s a huge step. 💪

@social strategist Viibryd for depression. The best SSRI I have been on. My doc said Zoloft is safe for pregnancy so if I struggle to call and I can switch. So far I am feeling my feelings way more deeply than I have been, fingers crossed I can get through the holidays.

^Sorry, meant to add that I mention that in case you end up struggling. But hopefully you won’t — pregnancy hormones can be wonderful. Good luck!

Thank you!!!

Yeah I’m already tired of feeling feels ... oy

If you don’t mind sharing, what meds are you coming off of? (Been thinking about this a lot for myself lately) they say some meds are safe for pregnancy, but idk..

Tips: Taper slow. Like 1 mg a month slow.

That’s great to hear, SR1, those are 2/3 of what I’m on now...(Lamictal, on the other hand, is horrible for pregnancies 😭)

Moms, I am 14 weeks pregnant. At KPMG, the new year starts in October and basically by spring of the following year, so April 2021, is when they put people up for promotion for the following year.

Anyone ever had trouble with a doctor not wanting to certify a family member’s condition, in order to take a leave of absence? My brother attempted suicide via drug OD (he was addicted) and he’s been hospitalized for over a week with seizures, psychosis, peeing blood, etc. We have visited him every day, driving 100+ miles round trip. The doctor is giving my father and me grief, saying (quote) “you aren’t providing care, the hospital is” and “there’s no reason you can’t go back to work.”
