    @El Guepardo - Bullet is right here. My missus is on a long wind down off these drugs and it is not something you should just stop overnight. You should definitely consider going back to your doctor again and I'm sure they'll advise you the right course of action.

    @El Guepardo I hope you are safe & well & feeling more positive after the response from various posters. i take anti depressants & anti psychotic medication to try & keep me on a level playing field & at various times I've felt better so stopped medication which then sent my mental health spiraling out of control. i would recommend always talking to your gp or find a psychiatrist ( they understand what meds do to the brain) as the meds you were on might not be working the way they should or there might be a better option for your specific needs.

    i have found not drinking alcohol, exercise, healthy diet & talking to my psychologist & psychiatrist on a regular basis really helped me. Talking to someone though difficult at times can really help. if you ever feel you need talk i'm more than willing to listen

    Hope your feeling better this morning buddy.

    I wonder if it is worth emailing the club a link to this thread, a business with a high percentage of male fans might be interested to get involved.

    At the very least something like posters at the urinals with that calm helpline phone number on them might be able to help people. The club has a huge reach in getting to fans. Does anyone know how you would go about getting them involved, what department you would need?

    Stay strong mate. Taking up the exercise regime was a great thing. Try to set up some short term goals to give you something to look forward too. I'm a single dad of two teenage daughters, one of whom is autistic and I got into a rut of always putting my responsibilities ahead of myself, I slipped into this routine of work, house work and caring for the kids. I would go months, not going out, not having any me time and I reckon a lot of men slip into this without realising it. Anyway you are dealing with things pretty well in my book and there has been some great advice in this thread.

    I have been through all of the above since Jan 2016, i recognise everything you have said.
    I still feel it now, although it has diluted alot.
    I know this feels atrocious right now. And i know you are reading this thinking "i know you know how it feels, i know I'm not alone. But that doesn't make it hurt any less, i just want it to go away."

    I'm going to PM you. If you have the strength, pm me back. If you don't, that is fine, i know how much energy it can take to even think about reaching out. It is an open ended offer too. If/when you want/need to, press that keyboard.

    EI,

    I have a cousin who is on Citalopram and he was on the high dose I believe was 40mg and wanted to come off it quickly. He was advised to gently reduce so is now taking 30(20 + 10mg). I think is the best way instead of going straight cold turkey. So far he seems to be ok and is now looking to reduce by another 10mg.

    If you can follow the same this is probably a better way to gradually reduce.

    Check your PMs mate. Your bravery, courage and honesty convince me that you will make it through just fine. Having read through a little further since I sent message, I would further agree wholeheartedly with people who say decelerate slowly from medicines. One other thing; if ever you feel social anxiety creeping up on you suddenly and oppressively, excuse yourself to a bathroom for a minute, a few deep breaths and think of positive social moments in your life. Then get right back out there! Good luck and keep posting...

    This has been one of the things i do even now ( at my age), i always feel better after running and working out and it makes me feel so good. I find if i set myself a routine and aim for something ( half marathon/ marathon) it keeps me focused and gives me a reason to get out of bed on the bad days.

    I am lucky because i have always had a inner strength but it works for me and its something i will always strive to do. Good luck mate its not easy into todays world ( what with all the doom and gloom, bad news etc) in fact its harder to be happy then to be un happy but never give in.

    I've been there too, mate. PM me any time. I had moments were I thought I would never go back to being the old me again but I got there - it took a while but I did. That was 12 odd years ago and I've been fine since.

    Get back on antidepressants. You need them at the moment and they will do you good. My advice is stay on them until you have felt better for a long time - at least a year - and then taper off really slowly; maybe over two years.

    You'll get there, honest, but you'll have to give yourself a break sometimes, try to accept that things won't improve in one long upward curve. You will always be moving forward - even if it feels too slow from time to time.

    I find the Nationwide adverts are making me very angry, every time one comes on t.v. I start swearing at it which is obviously not normal. It is difficult when you know your behaviour is not reasonable but you still do it.

    @El Guepardo check your PM's mate, sending you love, not the gay kind, unless your into that and as attractive as me.

    Up and down.
    I got away for a few days last week and going away again next week - I've found a change of scenery to be very cathartic.
    How you doing mate?

    Pretty good as Saturday all to myself, so it's a big welcome back to football that matters, watch the boys at 3pm, a poke around in the garden after (and why not... it's spring time), then a stroll along the beach to the pub for a pint.

    And i must say..............thank you for asking.

    Hope alls good in the GGG world?

    Sounds good to get away matey.

    I'm good thanks. Had a few dodgy days as got on the alcohol at work a few times, bit of a scare with the mrs yesterday at work and she was sent home but all fine in the end. Just been to my gym and now feel better. Consuming zero alcohol this weekend and chilling big time.

    Weekend are always better and now that it's spring I must say I always feel better about life in general. Football is back, relax time (and squeaky bum time too) but I'm back in the gym and eating healthy all weekend, and from now on.

    Glad you are good dude.

    I could fall into a depression on saturday evening.

    I did kick a womans car in car park, she had parked across two spaces so sort of deserved it but am wondering if my mood system is going off kilter which is why I do not think I will post in the general election thread.
