I need to add something that will give a motivational boost. I wish there was a med that evenly balanced the neurotransmitters.
Helen has started a petition to try and get our Government to take notice and start funding Effexor-XR again, Enlafax (the generic medication) has badly affected a lot of people but trying to get anything done about it is near impossible. Being on Effexor-XR is now very expensive as it is no longer funded at all, and many people with mental illness are on limited income.
Please sign and share this petition.
I react with awful side effects to any medication I have tried and am looking into the Fisher Wallace Stimulator to help with anxiety/depression/chronic pain. Does anyone know if anyone has had success with it? I've seen mixed reviews and don't trust their own website to be honest ;)
After having major problems in 2017 changing from Efexor-XR to Enlafax-XR, we want to try and get the process around funding of alternate brands of medication changed to make it less restrictive.
Please help by signing and sharing this petition.
There is also a Facebook page for people who have been affected by this - "ENLAFAX - problems with medication brand change NZ" please join if you have been or know of someone who was.

I hate having to clock in and out every day, hate all these Corporate emails about nonsense, having to do all these elearning stuff in a timely manner, completing an employee appraisal evauation, etc. all this stuff that comes with being an employee… read more
So over the last 2 years my life has gone from comfortable and happy to complete mess, I had a home, a job, a Wife, 3 amazing children, amazing friends, and was truly truly happy.
I now am single, homeless ( sleeping in my mates house), penniless, jobless, I only get to see my children every 2 weeks.
I have really battled with this since 2014 and was feeling like at the start of this year that I was going to get myself back on track.
I have never been without a job in 20 years, since 2014 i… read more
So I am curious, I have now had a IUD in for coming up 10 years (well technically this current one is my 2nd one) and I have been thinking I am going to need to have it removed next year - this causes me major fear as the first and second ones were both inserted under general anesthetic (I also had laparoscopies at the time), I have also never given birth and I am terrified about the pain of having it removed.
Also on doing a bit of reading this evening I have started to wonder if… read more
Hi, anyone in South Africa?
As I look at the symptoms, I believe I might have depression, I would like to know what I can do to start off with the treatment process. How do I get a diagnosis? I am unemployed currently, do not have money for to see a doctor, no medical aid, can I go to the clinic? Its difficult to talk to family and friends as I feel they would just advice that I should pray on it and it will all become better. Thank you for your time.
