The first thing that I did was to get rid of all the pills that the doctor had subscribed for me. As I wasn’t able to sleep, he gave me Xanax to use at night, Ascitolopram  to use every morning to get me in a better mood and Lexomil to use 3 times per day.  Lexomil was to calm me down because I was panicking since I didn’t know what had happened to me. I always loved life, I like to live and move forward but the pills knocked me out completely. I was very tired and I didn’t have the will to live anymore. That is the reason why I stopped taking the pills.  But if you have treatment and it works well for you then you shouldn’t stop and it is not good to stop suddenly anyway.

Second thing, I started to run every morning, it didn’t matter how stressed or how bad I felt, the first thing that I did and that I still do now, is to get up and to make my bed nicely so that I won’t want to get back into it. I put on my running clothes and I get out of my house and run for 30-45 minutes, depending on how fast I do it.  I have chosen my running route and I always go the same way.

  1. I’m glad you found something that works for you. But sometimes medication is the only thing and it may need to be used for long periods of time. Also talking to a therapist in conjunction with medication maybe useful. Everybody’s different and I glad to see you found what works for you. 😁😁

  2. Hi Ilona, that’s a lot of meds the Dr had you on and I’m happy that you were able to find an alternative solution.🏃‍♀️ A lot of us do not exercise enough and it took me a LONG time to realize that the walking I did was simply not enough to regulate my mood on a daily basis.

    Since August 5, I started doing HIIT (high intensity interval training) in the comfort of my home. I did not subscribe to any programs and figured out what to do by observing other people. Once I figured out how many mins a week I should be aiming for, I’ve incorporated into my daily schedule. I can now say that I’m medication free now and will be telling the Dr this week. Pilates is what works for me (with some yoga) and it’s the endorphins from exercise that makes me feel better about myself. This is Day 25 of working out.🧘‍♀️🌱


    1. Good evening, yes it was long way to go for me, but i was tired of trying different treatements. I started to google and to read other people experience with depression, it helped me much more than pills🤗🙂, i have heard about pilates and it helps for getting a better body too🤗🙂i should try one day, but some postures looks really difficult😁, i m very happy for you, work out are good, running also, everyone can find the alternative in the physical activities, even a faster walk sometimes can be good😊🤗are you sleeping well? Have you stopped to drink that tea? Remember you told me ones?


  3. All I want to say is treatments relieves the physical threats a such state of mind does to my body but they don’t fix the mental ones at all, not everytime. Shrinks are not here to help people to overcome, medicines are efficient by themselves according to them. They always acts with the urgences of the patient’s situations by giving you pills and potions without helping differently, in a different way. You have to cope with your own if you need a therapy , I don’t know what are they goal except of pushing you down when you speak of the secondary effects you have to bear, all they want to diagnose is the selling point of the treatment they give you. In addition you were too much drugged. I only got one pill.
