That was me for the first three years of college. The health center at my school thought it was just minor depression and GAD (generalized anxiety disorder), and ended up putting me on a medication that made my body as tired as my brain already felt. I spent a semester almost entirely in bed, while managing to put on a good show for my brother (he goes to the same school), and assuring my parents that everything was fine. Sometimes I would avoid taking to them for weeks, because I couldn't bring myself to lie, but I didn't want to tell them how bad things had gotten.
When I finally worked up the courage to tell the truth, all of it, I got help in the form of a psychiatrist and a psychologist close to home. As of right now, I can actually *do* things without over-thinking them or stalling. It's ... it'd actually nice to be able to sit down and do homework. I still have rather "hollow" days, but they're generally manageable.


Point is, there's a way out, eventually!

If I could post pictures, I would use the one wit the rainbow that says "not everything is ********". I like that one, it's nice.

There certainly is a way out.

Does the medication help? I haven't been doing so good lately

The one I've got now does.
Paxil is what I was initially given, it's not so good for college students because it tends to make you extra tired even when it works, and when it doesn't ... well, lets just say your bed is a very comfortable prison for a while.

However, Paxil and other SSRI's work just fine for most people, and if they don't work the next step is a combination SSRI & SNRI, which treats both low seratonin and low norepinephrine, improving both mood and goal formation/ direction. That's what I've got now, in the form of Cymbalta.

I have ALL THE EMOTIONS now. it's a good kind of weird
