I've had a pretty bad year of it and have been feeling really low of late and have issues with all the things that are out of my control - which are really sending me under. I haven't been such doing a good job of the things I can control either to be honest.
Anyways I finally went to the doc's a couple of weeks ago and he's referred me for counselling. I've been back again today for an update and things are no better for me. We had a chat about medication until (but I guess it carries on) the counselling comes through. I'd been against it cos I have fear of it affecting my performance - particularly at work. He's given me a prescription for Citalopram and left it up to me whether I want to 'cash it in'. From what he said and what I've read I'm gonna feel crap for the next couple of weeks - but should be fine after that.
Anyone got any experience of using it and can offer any reassurance I'm gonna be ok? I'm currently thinking that I will start using it cos I need to do something.
