If its okay i'm going to write a little blog about my progress with treatment for my disorders but i don't want it on the official blog...not yet anyway.
today i was put on sertraline for Post Natal Depression. its not my first anti-depressant, i've been on prozac and citalopram. my gp is going to refer me to therapy once it kicks in.
lots of nausea and drowsiness. dont feel well at all. less appetite than normal. i normally always start to feel low at dusk and get really depressed at night, not sure why, i do feel low during the day too but the night-time depression is usually guaranteed. but i've not felt particularly low yet, just a bit lonely and very tired. good sign already! one thing was i felt irrationally angry a couple hours ago but i could at least recognise it was irrational and it passed quickly.
trying not to be too optimistic but i've got good feelings so far.
bad thing unrelated to ADs: i relapsed with self-harm quite badly today before i took the first pill. hoping it is my last experience.
