| Hi, all -
You'd expect that relief from depression would feel
good, wouldn't you? Sometimes it does. But other times,
feeling good comes *after* our first reaction, which is
feeling very depressed, even suicidal. Feeling better
kicks in later.
The key word here is "sometimes" - not every
time. If it happens to you, call your doctor right away.
Adjusting the dosage might help. And remember: I'm
*not* a doctor!
I've been reading about this sort of thing with anti-
depressants. And I've seen it happen in life situations,
when somebody escapes from dreadful living conditions.
First they crash. After a time, they feel good.
I have an idea about why this happens. Suppose
you're leaning against a wall, holding it up. Then
somebody moves the wall. You're using all your strength
to resist something that isn't there any more - so you go
flying and crash. I don't know if this is how it works, but
maybe it's a reasonable analogy.
(who is *not* a doctor!)
