    I'm not understanding the bigger issue here. My problem is that I was in a major depression for 6 years that consisted of me being in my room, inactive and disinterested in life except for my computer.

    Right now my problem is that I have constant general anxiety that prevents me from functioning 100% normal and I have fears of falling back into my depression from years ago that is triggered by things that reminds me of it. The memories put me into a few minutes of doom and gloom thinking it's happening again.

    I've noticed while on the antidepressants that I let a lot of things just slide, I don't overanalyze nearly as much, and I actually WANT to talk to people for fun!

    If you are looking for an opinion from someone who has been there, find an anti depressant that works for you. You need to be able to function, focus and move forward first and foremost. It doesn't matter if it costs you orgasms while you are looking for the right fit. It may take you a while - but please don't let yourself backslide into depression because you get impatient and discouraged. Sometimes, you need to do a little trial and error with your physician's guidance.

    I see my doctor on the 11th. I guess until then I'll have a for the most part good mood from 75mg of the Effexor. I'll see what he says then. He said something about trying to work around it with Viagra or some other additional medicine. I'm just wondering if I'll be left with the choices of either a) Try another antidepressant to keep trying to find one without the side effect b) Add another medicine to counter the sexual side effects c) Deal with the side effect staying there indefinitely. It sounds like kinda hard choices to make, you know?

    Your doctor continues to sound mentally retarded.

    Viagra will make it more difficult for you to come, not less difficult. That's actually one of the nice things about PDE5 inhibitors like Viagra, Cialis, etc.

    He may recommend a stimulant, which could help, but could cause other problems.

    How do you feel NOW vs. how you felt on Paxil?

    I'm noticing small bursts of getting off on small things, like something triggering a good feeling that I wouldn't expect. I went to the gym yesterday and while I was on the elliptical and treadmill, I felt like I was at a club. It felt amazing and exhilerating, compared to a few days ago when it was work. It's hard to really remember what happened on Paxil. I just remember small things like clothes people are wearing or things like that making me feel good, which is happening again.

    Right now, I just feel...confused, anxious, scared, lonely. I'm not really sure what's wrong that's making me feel like that. It's snowing right now and I'm stuck at my sister's house with 3 siblings and my parents. We can't go out at night so I'm just left at my laptop, and really I just want to sit here staring into space listening to music. I saw a bottle of champagne my brother has and thought maybe it'd feel good to feel nothing from a few drinks. ><

    I just get into this intense moods where I feel like my life has no purpose, I have nothing I want to do for fun, I start overanalyzing my family thinking they're the stupidest people on the planet and the cause of my pain. I feel like I could be doing more to feel more relaxed, but I just don't know what and it's almost like it's impossible to get the willpower to try to find solutions on my own. I just feel like I'm quickly heading nowhere. Then I start thinking about school and how I'm stuck from quitting, I can't get a functional relationship because I get anxious around girls, and it's like I can't control my weight lately.

    Oh then I sit on the fact that the antidepressant MIGHT help a few hours a day for now, but then the orgasm issue pops up and then I wonder if I'm doing something wrong for making orgasms equally as important as general happiness. I start feeling like I'm doing nothing right now but going through therapy and medicine switching, and I try reading a mood therapy self-help book but all I want to do is criticize the author for expecting me to do things that feel impossible.

    My mother and sister are on Paxil for anxiety. My grandfather took Lithium, and my grandmother was on some other anxiety medicine. I just really want to sit and play video games all day because I feel like life is too....confusing and hard. ><
