Is it worth the pain?

by Jaeline

I’m not sure how to describe this feelings, but if you’re here, is almost certain that you understand, I’ve been here since two years ago but I never took the courage to write until today that I just felt the necessity, I take antidepressants and people tell me I’m doing better, but I just feel that I have my emotions on stand by, it just doesn’t feel right.

I think after taking antidepressants, it just blunted how i feel emotion, which has lasted.
Im not sure if it’s worth the pain.

I wasn’t on antidepressants (yet) but I have used weed for depression and I get that feeling. “Oh you seem to be doing better” I’m told when really it just makes hiding them easier and kinda pushed them off to the side a bit. I still know they are there though.

They aren’t meant to make them go away unfortunately. Just supposed to make them more manageable I guess while you figure out how to rewire your brain.?

Antidepressants create a “living in two dimensions” effect. They’ve altered levels of certain chemicals in your brain, and the result can be a feeling of flatness. It’s odd. Personally, I’d rather deal with the normal feelings that accompany depression – at least that way I feel something.

I don’t think it feels right to take antidepressants either, but my dose was basically shoved down my throat, onward to other problems such as the rx med made me gain 50 pounds in four months!! I read that antidepressants do nothing other than take your personality and make you feel numb. I’ve been off them for 4 years, almost 5 and still seeing if the numbness will last forever. I’m not sure if it will clear up and if I’ll ever feel like a human being again.
