I was taking Lexapro but my sex drive was so bad, my doctor even lowered the dosage but it still didn't work sex wise. Well I stopped the lexapro and stopped going to therapy, while doing both I still had my episodes and I still felt like crap. I also didn't want to take the pills at night and then fall into a deep sleep in case my DD needs me. Today I just felt like I wanted to die and make it all go away. DD woke up throwing up,last month she had fever for like 3 days. We are having major financial issues and all I get is bad news. Im so tired of feeling sick myself, I have no energy at all. Im not a good mom for my child. I love her but I don't love the feeling I get especially when she is sick. I had a dream where I saw my daughter doing something and my DH saw her doing something completely different. I explained to him that it symbolises real life, he never believes me when I tell him how I feel.I want to run away

    At least you realize you need to get help. I know my DH loves me and really wants to help me, but he doesn't get it either. He knows that I feel miserable, but thinks I should "fix" like he fixes his slumps.

    Make that appointment ASAP, it will be the best for you.

    have you tried therapy? ive found that to be overall more helpful than meds (although i am once again on meds). a lot of anti depressants cause sex drive side effects but some dont.

    i hope you find a way to get through your depression :)

    maybe they can put you on something that wont affect your libido and wont knock you out at night. discuss this with your therapist or dr.

     I'm glad you are going back on your meds and going back to your theropist.  Maybe you can get your husband to go with you for a few session.  So he can understand more of what you are going through
