I have been deciding for awhile whether or not to share this, but I admire the bloggers who blog so openly and truthfully about such personal things. So why can't I do it?
The answer is fear.
Fear of being judged or ridiculed or told that I'm crazy or stupid or wrong or should be able to deal with my problems without medication.
But you know what?
I've been taking zoloft in increasing doses for a few months now, and I feel so much better. My anxiety has lessened, and I am not as snappy (well until I got pneumonia). I feel focused, and once I am physically well I think life is going to be so fantastic. Because I won't be so worried about everything within and beyond my control.
I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and I am being treated for it with Zoloft.
This is not a bad thing, and we need to talk about these things. People do not need to be judged or put into a special corner because we need a little help.
