I went to that interview this morning; I hope that it has gone okay.  As long as I have tried, that's what matters?

You should feel proud of yourself for going for the interview - I hope you get the job and succeed in your future career with them, no matter what job you get, it'll get you started on the ladder to your dreams.  Reward yourself with a mug of your favourite drink and a take-away for tea... you soooo deserve that!

Too right, today is a clean page in the book of your life so you should feel proud of everything you've achieved today 'cos I certainly feel proud of you!

Keep at it Lost... you are doing so well!  I know there are days when you prolly don't want to get out of bed because of depression and that's totally OK, but tell yourself how much you've already achieved this year and you'll get there in the end!   :happy0158:

Just been the GP surgery, they changed the medication.  Took ages to get out of that place this morning.

How do you feel about changing meds?  Have you got to slowly change or is it one day you take the original one then the next you take the new one?  I hope the new one helps more than the other lot - there will prolly be a flood of emotions as you change.  That's just your body getting used to the switchover. You can do this, Lost... just remember that you aren't alone and can come to the forum to let off steam whenever you need to!

That's awesome!  I hope they kick in for you soon, but it could take like 6 weeks before you notice any improvement, I hope they kick in sooner than that though.  Which ones are they and are they brand name or generic?

The way I was feeling isn't normal and I hope it changes soon, because I've had enough of it.

So do I, I had been on Escitalopram for years, I'm guessing it had lost its efficacy tbh ... it was making me tired and very cranky and I used to obsess about silly things, which again... isn't normal behaviour.

How are you feeling now?  It's too early to notice any positive effects, I realise that, but has the previous dose of Escitalopram started to loose it's effect yet?  Did your doc say how long you'd have to wait to find out if the new one is helping?  Is it a sort of days because you've gone straight from one to the other or is it still the standard 6 weeks?  Has s/he suggested any way to cope with any rough times during the switch?  I hope you get lots of positive effects from your new meds asap!
