I was diagnosed with depression 4 years ago and again about a year ago. Withdrawls only happen if you stop suddenly. I went through withdrawls my first try with medication (the medicine was making me suicidal), and without talking to a doctor I just stopped taking it.

I HIGHLY recommend proper diet and regular exercise if you aren’t already. It makes a huge difference and it’s something you can continue while pregnant. Counseling has also helped quite a bit.

I hope you find something that works for you, just be patient 🙂
I completely know what you’re feeling.

The most important thing for those meds is to not change anything or take new stuff without talking to your doctor. Also making sure that all the people who may be perscribing you medication (over the counter and herbal supplements count!!) Have a full up to date list of what you take so they don’t give you something with an interaction. And sometimes it takes a lot of time and trying lots of different things to get it under control. You realize you needed help and are getting it which is great! I think it is great your SO is supportive, that is another important part of treatment, obviously your SO loves you, make sure you let them know that even when you don’t seem like it, you really do appreciate them for what they do. I how your treatment allows you yo start feeling better!
