    I'm Julie (19) and I live in Florida. I've had depression and anxiety for years, and also a few OCD tendencies. I've also been suicidal for a while as well. I finally decided to go to the doctor about two weeks ago and he diagnosed me with depression/anxiety and gave me citalopram. It's literally been HELL. =/ Hopefully the medicine stops giving me bad side effects and finally starts to do it's job. He also referred me for counseling (hopefully it helps). I just found this site searching google and I'm glad I'm here. So yeah, :hieveryone: ! :santa:

    Hi Julie,
    Welcome to the forums.. It takes meds six to eight weeks before they start helping.. If you are having bad side affects you need to tell your doctor so he can change your med.. Everyones body chemistry is different so it takes a while to find which meds work for you..I think you will find therapy to be a great help to you.. Also again it takes time to build a bond of trust.. Sometimes you have to go thru a couple before you find the right one.. It took me three before I found Gina..I wish you all the best!!
