Day 6 and depressed

5 posts in this topic

On day 6 and I don’t remember the depression being so prominent. Feels like I have a pit in my stomach, along with anxiety, apathy and depression. Hoping for some advice. When does this subside and is there anything you’ve done to help combat it in the meantime?

@NurseAddy  I weirdly remember Day 6 because I felt the same way that day.  My day 6 fell on a Sunday too and I felt super depressed and anxious....honestly I felt like complete crap.  You're in the thick of it right now, just hang in there. The last 2 weeks for me have been going quite well but the first 30 days were solely about doing nothing except getting thru work and putting time between myself and my last adderall. I know that wasn't much advice but just a reminder that things will get better...

@eric Honestly, I just appreciated the reply as it can get quite lonely fighting an internal battle. It’s nice to hear from someone who’s been there and done that. Even if it is the brutal truth. I’ll take it. So thank you. Congrats to 48 days!

@NurseAddy  CONGRATS ON 1 WEEK DOWN TODAY!!! Hope your having a good day. For a stressful Monday, I'm performing better than I have in years (even when I was on meds).  So again just hang in there and realize that stimulants may help a lot in the short term but they screw you over from real happiness in the long run.

Good luck and congrats!!

- Currently Day 49 :-)

@eric Thank you! I appreciate you stopping by, it’s definitely feeling like a ‘Monday’ on this end. I’m glad to know it gets better though! Again, appreciate you stopping by! Congrats to ALMOST 50 days!
