Zoloft and antidepressants
The stigma surrounding antidepressants is unreal and sad! Many people do not understand how important it is for people with Depression or Anxiety Disorders to be treated properly. Zoloft is the best decision I ever made for not only myself, but my family! See, I was diagnosed with a severe Panic Disorder. Before Zoloft came into the picture I was struggling to function as a normal member of society. I found myself getting terrified throughout the day for absolutely no reason.
It could be a car door closing out in the parking lot and I would feel this immense feeling that someone was out to get me. I remember calling 911 over 5 times in one week and getting rushed to the hospital because I thought I was having a heart attack and Dying! The sense of doom you feel during an episode is something I would never wish on anyone.

I finally couldn't take it anymore, I began to see a Psychiatrist and that was when he diagnosed me with my Panic Disorder. He prescribed me Sertraline (also known as Zoloft). At first I was scared to take it, " What if it makes my anxiety worse? " and "I don't want to have to take something everyday of my life to feel normal!". These were the thoughts that kept crossing into my head. It took me a couple days before I finally had enough courage to swallow that 1st pill. 1 month later......



I felt like the Queen of the my world again. I was ecstatic, I was happy, I felt 'NORMAL' again! It was a beautiful thing. Zoloft Saved My Life! The thing about it was, that the Zoloft actually let me look at my life and analyze things through a different perspective. I was able to learn more about my disorder without freaking out about it. I was learning how to handle the Panic Attacks and what they truly were. It allowed me to learn new skills to handle them in an appropriate way! (Remember Zoloft does not Cure You, It is a way to help balance the chemicals in our brain)
So if you have been fighting with yourself about whether or not you should start taking antidepressants, I hope I have given you some relief. Remember hope is never lost, it is there always trying to find it's way to you. It is up to us to heed the advice of our doctors and ourselves to do what is right for us. If taking an antidepressant is going to make you feel better and help you function, DO IT! Don't let the opinions of people scare you or deter you from doing what you need to do to make yourself Healthy and Happy! So Thank you Zoloft and The Big Pharma that made you. You saved my life!
