    I don't know anything about your situation, but drugs are not fun, I agree. I had to take zoloft for anxiety/panic attacks for a while and just stopped cold turkey. (I'm a nursing student. They say nurses are the worst patients ) I didn't see many terrible side effects but I don't like drugs in general. I don't like having to take a pill 2X a day.

    If you are very very depressed I would reccommend trying to stick out the drug for atleast a few weeks and see where that gets you. It takes about 3-8 weeks for some of them to have the desired effect. (I know that seems like an eternity.)

    And, not to sound preachy, but exercise definitely is an anxiety/depression killer for me. It totally puts your mind on a clean slate, besides its other obvious health benifits. Vitamins, eat right,.. blah blah blah...I have to force myself to do these things on a regular basis, but its totally worth it. I haven't had major signs of anxiety or depression in a long time.

    (Will read more when I have more time!!)

    hang in there!

    A nurse who hates drugs? How will you live with yourself?

    Yeah, I intend to try it out for at least a month or two. I guess my main concern is that the effects stay the same but I become desensitized to them. I'd hate to come to think of this current state as normal.

    Yeah I exercise pretty regularly and eat right when I remember (INFP). It helps a bit I think.

    It's kind of inspiring in a weird way to see a life well-lived come to an end. Maybe I won't think that in a month, I dunno.

    Unfortunately, you probably will.
    Losing someone close to you isn't something that you'll forget about in a month, but hopefully will come to more of an acceptance.

    I don't know honestly.
    When you ask the people ahead of me in nursing school "how they cope with the stresses of the rigorous schooling"

    they all have their own little concoctions.

    "valium! klonopin!"
    lol.

    That's just not that. Your whole life is transitioning and the feelings of sand beneath your feet can be disconcerting. Be aware that others sense and send not only their condolences but their best wishes for you & your family, including a newb here like me.
