Im 43, and lately havent felt like myself.....i've been jittery and even the smallest tasks seem overwhelming sometimes. I am in a new relationship too and the thought of it feels overwhelming...even though it should be a good thing. I feel I may be a bit depressed/anxious. I have been to a doctor (psych) and he says I have a touch of GAD and wants to put me on a low dose of effexor. I have had 2 bouts with major depression in my whole life , but never did the med route. I feel like taking meds means I am admitting I am weak or flawed or a 'failure". Can anybody relate? AT the same time, i feel my brain chemicals are a bit wonky right now.....Depression runs in my family though. My father has had bouts of it, but he never talked about it. His father did too.
Am I just genetically wired to have to deal with it too? Because I really feel things have been going well, and I was fine up until about a month ago, feels biological.
