Getting worse again

Hi all,
I'm back :unsure:
So I've been on Sertraline about 2 months now; on the whole it's working. Still not sleeping with it, still got night sweats.
Been back at work about 3 weeks now and that's been going well for me.
But the last few days I've felt myself on a downward spiral again. My brain's obsessivley thinking over everything again; I'm having major troubles with my landlady and I just don't feel able to cope with it anymore, it's too much. I'm spending all my time outside work in bef, not eating properly again and I just want to cry and hide under a rock.

I'm fed up of feeling like this, fed up of always having a rubbish time and attempting to cope with it. I really do want to just go crawling back under a blanket and block everything out - in turn I then pee myself off that I'm gonna let myself get defeated again.

Hi worthit, i hope you stick with the sertraline if that's what you want; i've been on it for almost a year now with my intense emotions. A lot of the time i think it's not helping me, but it's a little blanket.

Hi,
I'm also on stertraline, have been for over a year now unfortunately it's not working for me atm, but stick with it, if that's your choice x
If your on a downward spiral is there anything you can do to stop it now? Taking positive very small steps can be empowering! I'm thinking things like making sure you go to work, taking some time out of bed to do something you enjoy? Making an appointment to speak to your pdoc or gp about how your feeling?

Thanks for your reply. I was having a particularily bad time last night/this morning, lack of any sleep at all did not help. I intend to stick with the Sertraline, or at least an AD, if perhaps my doctor suggests a change after my next appointment.
I had work today and immediatley broke down to my manager - thankfully she is very supportive and a friend, sat down with me and tried to calm me down. Whilst at work as my tablets kicked in for the day I picked up, just hoping it can stay that way now that I am back home.

I'm going to try as hard as I can to sort out as many of these life issues as soon as possible, but perhaps without stressing myself, too. And I will try to continue at work as I do despise having time off; but it's rubbish when all i want to do is hide, sleep and panic.

What a horrible horrible cycle this is!

Thank you both very much for the support x

Good to know you're doing ok and that you opened up to your manager;
that you don't have to hide from people and your feelings, and the support is out there and on here.
Keep well. x
