I've felt really depressed for the last month or so. At first I thought it was PMS; then I thought it was because of the dog sadness; then I was sick. Now I'm not sick, it started before the dog died, it went on too long to be PMS and would be DMS now.

And I still just feel .... just plain depressed. I'll be sitting around reading or whatever, and suddenly have this panicky feeling of dread and start flipping out. Or I'll start sobbing over nothing. Or I'll sit on my couch and stare at the wall blankly for long periods of time. I don't understand what's going on. It's so incredibly frustrating, because I'll be crying and saying to myself "there's nothing wrong, why am I crying? There's nothing wrong." It's interfering with my life: I'm struggling to study, struggling to get anything done around the house, struggling to maintain a happy facade at work.

I'm hoping it was PMS, then it was because of the dog, then it was because I was sick, and now it's because when I was sick I forgot to take my happy pills for about three days. I'll give it another week or so and if it's not better I guess I'll go back to the doctor. I feel like I'm going insane.

    It could be not taking the pills for a few days, don't they need to build up, so if you stop the amount [in your body] drops off?

    I hope you feel better soon - you really seem to be a happy, upbeat person and it saddens me to see you struggle.

    Good luck [and I pray it isn't raining where you are like here - rain never helps nuthin' :D]

    Prozac has a fairly long half-life, so it's not supposed to have the kinds of ups and downs that other meds do. I don't remember how many days I forgot it, though; I'm hoping that's it because otherwise I'm just plain losing my mind! When my screwy brain chemistry is modulated I am pretty happy, so hopefully I'll get back to normal soon.

    Rain, though? That makes me happy. :) It's my favorite kind of weather!
