Hi everyone, I'm new.

Having a very rough time so was searchng 'suicide' in Google (as you do) and came across this forum, I am SO relieved.

So I'm Samantha, I'm 21 and from Wales UK. I've grown up with domestic violence and emotional abuse and am still living at home. I started having panic attacks at age 17. Age 19 I went to Uni already struggling with depression and dropped out of my course on a medical leave of absence a few months later after becoming suicidal. I have been on 40mg of Citalopram (celexa) for over a year now. It's losing its effectiveness and I hav found myself back at square one lately so on the advice of my doctor, I cut down to 20mg two weeks ago and a week today I am switching to 50mg Sertraline (Zoloft) which I am scared about as meds terrify me.

Anyway, I hope to get to know you all better and hope i can be of some hep round here.

Take care

Hi Samantha, and welcome to the forum.:smile: I've been on Zoloft for several years now and it's helped me tremendously. Come here as often as you need for listening ears, a shoulder to cry on, and arms to reach out to you when you can't find your way.

love,

least
