A Misunderstood Illness

Posted on December 29, 2007 @ 2:01 pm

I was embarrassed the first time I got a prescription for antidepressants. I had to go and buy Zoloft and I was so concerned about what people must think of me. Now that I have come to grips with my illness, I realize that it was silly of me to think this way. The reason these drugs are prescribed is to help us, not make us feel worse.

I was lucky enough to only have to take them for a short while and was weaned off quite easily. After the birth of my son, I experienced a relapse, in the form of post-partum depression. This time I chose to order Paxil and it, too, worked well and I recovered rather quickly.

After the birth of my daughter, the same thing happened. Only this time, it wouldn’t go away. My doctor suggested that I order Prozac online and hope that would work. It did work and I was happy that my family was complete. It has now been three years and I am a happy-go-lucky mom and have not had a relapse at all.
