Tell yourself it’s only work every day. There’s more in life and it helps to keep things in perspective. Don’t get wound up by other people being competitive. It’s only about what you think matters and like.

Hi all, I have a more general post and would like to hear about your experiences - How do you know if the dosage of your anti-depressants or anxiety medication is too strong for you? How do you know when those medications don't work for you at all and when any new ones do?

Have you ever felt even more depressed and unmotivated on these meds? What other treatments has your psychiatrist offered aside from prescriptions?

(3rd yr on Klonopin & mirtazapine. Am suspicious that they're not helping)
