I have a question for any of you feelers that are currently or have ever taken any anti-anxiety or anti-depression medications.
What was/is your experience with it?
I've never actually taken any meds like this (though in my early twenties and late teens there were sure times I considered it!) but I was talking to my mom the other day about it, she is either infp or infj.. and she had gone on prozac for about two months a few years back. She was telling me that it was a complete emotional blocker for her.. she didn't feel anything, goor or bad. This concept of no emotions at all is hard for me to grasp, because so much of my personality is emotions. I honestly couldn't imagine who or what I'd be like, what the world would look like to me without an emotional undertone. I also wonder how I would behave towards others if I did not have any sense of emotional impact. Its just such a strange concept to me. I had an ISFJ friend go on Zoloft while she was also taking Acutane because it caused a major depression.. and her personality changed drastically! During that time many of our friends had a hard time being around her, because she would say alot of rude things, seemed to have little concern, etc. for the people around her. Ofcourse we all knew it was the meds, not HER, and supported her still. When I was asking my mom about the prozac, she told me the reason she went off it is because it turned her into a zombie. Not someone that felt bad, or crazy, she just didn't feel anything. I understand that meds are helpful and sometimes neccessary to balance certain people out.. so this isn't meant to be a "bash scrip users" thread. I am looking for honest experiences from a feelers perspective.
