    Antidepressants have stopped working and I'm feeling depressed again

    I just wanna lay in bed all day and do nothing and speak to no one. Completely zapped of all my energy and just feel like shit. I'm glad I'm not feeling very agitated though, as that's a lot worse for me and is when I start self harming. Not sure what to do. Fluoxetine and Sertraline send me...
