  • Has anyone "lost their creativity" on antidepressants?

    I am an avid, DAILY writer of fiction. It's almost an obsession but for me it is a healthy one because anyone who has known me long enough can tell you the pattern, when I am writing, I am generally happy. When I stop, I go downhill. When I start again, I get better almost immediately. It helps me to get out of my own head and world and problems and into someone else's.

    But since I have started a series of antidepressants over the past few months, I NEVER write. I think twice in January, three times in February and not once in March or April--and never even a full page. I strated with a tricyclic, followed by two others, Remeron, now Cymbalta. Does anyone have any such experiences as this? Losing creativity on a variety of antidepressants? It's like I can't even break into my fictional world anymore when I used to reside there half my life to escape being alone in my own head all the time.

  • I'm stuck

    Lately I've been feeling stuck, like I'm not improving. I'm not getting worse either. But it seems like I've been doing better. But I'm not sure if it's because I am getting better and the working on myself is actually doing something. Or I'm only feeling like I'm doing better because the main trigger for my anxiety and depression is momentarily gone. I just don't know what to do. The working on myself is expressing my emotions and feelings more, and trying to reach out to my friends. I've been figuring out what Happens during an attack and what helps. I know myself pretty well in that area. But I want to be able to do more then just coping with it. I want it to get less. I only have no idea how
