How many of you are on anti-depressants for CFS related depression and does it work? Right now, I'm in college and 500 miles away from home and dealing with CFS. I am having a lot of difficulty as I took last semester off and have always had a high GPA. I am putting a lot of pressure on myself to maintain it, however it is not so easy. I didn't do so well on my last test, but I'm really working hard to keep up, even though it seems impossible sometimes. I COULD transfer somewhere closer to home, but I am only 2 semesters away from graduating here and a transfer would add another year or two until graduating. I am also having trouble with my sorority, etc. because I am having trouble committing to things and its been difficult. I've had to go on limited status, but sometimes people don't understand why I seem energetic and choose to do homework or do laundry instead of going to a sorority event. I have tried to explain it to as many girls as possible and while many are VERY supportive, I've had trouble with a few who don't believe it exists or just thing i'm doing what I want to do and I don't want to do sorority stuff that's not fun. Also, my first love who I am no longer dating has transferred to my school and is scheming to get into my social circle and I just want him gone. His behavior is somewhat creepy, actually. So all of this adds up to a lot of issues...and I'm wondering if you think that medication is going to help or if its just situational? I have been crying pretty much every day and I'm in therapy....but my mom has had it with my weepiness and told me antidepressants are what I need, however I don't think its going to magically make me feel better. What do you think? What has been your experience?
