Day 80 and dealing with depression

Hi all ! Well I am still moving forward but I hit some rough spots along the way . Dark depression  really has a strangle hold on me today . Starting to fade away as it gets into the evening hours . Taking Lexapro everyday and I am wondering if its not working or I just have more time to recover and eighty days really isn't that long for recovery . I went on a drive in my convertible thinking this would help and I just felt like everything in Los Angeles was so ugly and glum ! Any of you people been threw this at this point in your recovery ? Thanks in advance for your responses . Your friend  Jimmy

Congrats on those 80 days Jimmy and sorry your having a tough day. How long have you been on lexapro now. Also check out the PAWS info in the health pages here, that could be contributing to the depression too. I don`t know a lot about anti depressants, but I think most take awhile to start working. Hang in there and hope you feel better. Are you still running a few miles a day. Your doing great and almost at that BIG 90 day milestone:)
