Feeling really suicidal at the moment and would like to share my story. Maybe even save someone from suffering. I think I have been depressed my whole life, 26 years that is. Few months ago I went to see doctor because I felt really depressed but not suicidal. She prescribed me SSRI medication for my depression. Took medication for a month and first weeks I felt more alive than ever. But after few weeks I came crashing down and felt worse than ever in my life. Doctor told me to stop taking the medication. I did so and felt horrible but wasn't suicidal. It wasn't until few weeks has passed after stopping when I realized that I have lost my sexuality. I now suffer from condition called PSSD, post SSRI sexual dysfunction. Doctors don't have a clue what to do and there is no way of knowing will my sexual functions ever return. Sex has always been very important to me and first time in my life I feel really suicidal. I feel that life without sex is not worth living. So as I first said, I really had to share this with someone and I'm also hoping that maybe someone will think twice after reading this before taking SSRI medication. But if you already are on SSRI medication, don't stop until you contact your doctor. Never ever stop cold turkey. Antidepressant doesn't cure depression it only hides the symptoms. Medication is not the answer and people should seek other forms of help. Therapy is much better choice.
