*gloom*  

I don't know what the deal is. I feel as if my antidepressants decided to quit working while I was asleep or something. A bug, squashed under the uncaring heel of fate without even a hole to crawl into.

It's going around. Seattle's being hit hard.

Me, I'm taking magnolia leaf or some damned thing, trying to soak up my extra cortisol. Cortisol from stress beyond the breaking point. And then, the gloom. But we have to fight it, no matter what.

Thanks. You're right. Must ... fight ... it.

As far as I can tell (which includes a bit of unsystematic reading) antidepressants will (or can) work if you're depressed because of chemical imbalances. They won't do a damned thing if you're unhappy about something external.

Also, it's common for a given antidepressant to stop working for a person after a few years. So it may be time to talk to your doctor about switching prescriptions.

Both your statements are true. However. While I was (and am) rather unhappy about a number of things, I carefully checked for that. This was I can't wake up, I don't want to wake up, it's all dismal anyway depression. While antidepressants do become less effective over time (which is why I'm now on Celexa rather than Prozac), it's usually a gradual slope. This was like waking up and discovering I was at the bottom of a cliff. But I'm better today. Thanks.

Do remember that there's a lot of people who care about you, and are wiling to offer what help they can.

And a check-up on the meds probably wouldn't hurt.

Re: Hugs
The thought is usually about as much help as I can stand, but it does help. Thanks.

Still feeling low?

Thanks for asking. No. It got ... different ... the following day, and now I seem to be back to my current normal state -- slightly depressed, kind of unhappy, but nothing I haven't been dealing with for years. Life goes on.
