I’ve just came off citalopram. I don’t think antidepressants do anything for my anxiety.
If I’m being honest they make me worse.

I was at the point where I was questioning my sanity. I’m was imagining strange things. At one point I actually thought I had psychosis, because I was experiencing delusions. Until I realised it was only anxiety. I honestly didn’t realise the depth of anxiety.

I think I have suffered from every form. I have suffered a lot in my life. Looking back and sometimes I can’t believe I’ve made it through some situations!

About 2 week ago I began to have an episode, which my first thought was psychosis. I was experiencing a vivid delusion.

I had changed my medication a month before to a stronger dose. I do think it helped my mood.

However that episode that I had, put me off medication.
