Feel So Awful

I feel so depressed and worried. I really hate myself as I cause problems and arguments. I upset my husband frequently by not being very nice which causes arguments and upsets my son. I’ve been on antidepressants for years but keep changing as they give me night terrors and I scream. I switched to Mirtazapine nearly two months ago but struggled with the drugged up feeling all day so halved the dose as my gp suggested. That’s helped but now I don’t think they’re working at all as I feel so low. Shall I go back to the normal dose or try a different one? I’m so mixed up and confused about everything in my life even though I do try to do yoga once a week and voluntary work once a week.

Don't hate yourself, just try to be more mindful of the things you do that cause other people distress and try to work on those things. I am glad you are doing volunteer work, that is really good for your mental health--generosity of spirit is very good for the heart. You might want to try breathing exercise (light meditation) as well as taking up the five buddhist precepts if you haven't already (don't kill anything, don't intoxicate yourself, don't cheat, don't steal, don't lie).
