Did any of you ladies find a change in your menstrual cycle since you started using an SSRI Antidepressant?

Did any of you ladies find a change in your menstrual cycle since you started using an SSRI Antidepressant?

I was placed on Nuzak (20mg) about a month ago and I am currently on my period (Day 5). My usual period cycle is 28 days with an average period length of 5 days which means I'm supposed to be finishing soon, however, I've noticed that my period pain has increased and so has my flow. Could this be because of the antidepressant or am I just having a bad month? I would like to know from my fellow female… read more

Depression/Bipolar II (hypomania)

Depression/Bipolar II (hypomania)

Many years ago I was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder. A couple years ago, due to symptoms I described to my doctor, he added a diagnosis of Bipolar II (hypomania, which is characterized by fluctuations from depression to "just above" normal - not manic episodes as in Bipolar I). My particular type of Bipolar II is called ultra rapid cycling (ultradian), which means there can be several significant mood swings in a single day. Here's a typical day: I wake up feeling… read more

High sex drive

High sex drive

Hi all,

Thanks for taking the time to read my message, I am at a point of being desperate and don’t know what the solution is.

I have suffered with depression all my adult life (I am 31) and have had periods where I have been perfectly in control with medication.

However when I am not in control my sex drive is dangerously high. I have been in a (generally) happy relationship for 13 years but in the past 18 months since turning 30 I have been uncontrollable. I still love my boyfriend very much… read more

How can I deal with her?

How can I deal with her?

My mother emotionally abuses me. Im scared that her anger is aggrevated everyday and that she'll end up physically hurting me.
Last time she nearly punched me in the face because I said she is a little aggressive. Ironic, right.
I tread carefully around her, I say about a maximum of 10 words to her a day because Im always anxious of her reactions.
Im always in my room because I avoid stepping on her toes, but honestly, I miss being able to sit in the living room with everyone else and… read more

Therapist dumped me

Therapist dumped me

How do you go on when your therapist tells you that they can no longer see you that you need to find someone else. This happened a week ago & I'm still having a really hard time with it. Then she tells you to find one & of all of the therapists around are not in your network.

When I talk to myself, I call it thinking out loud. Sometimes I have to do it to keep my train of thought. Or I might forget what I was talking about.

Background info: I've been depressed for over 25 years, was married, and had 2kids. I have been alone for over 16 years now, and can't believe that someone would even want to be with me. For all my shortcomings, depression and lack of self esteem. My kids mean the world to me, but they are older now and moving on with their own lives.
