So after that shitshow that was Spring semester, and the realization over the summer that I was still not in a good place mentally, I started on an SSRI. It's been about three weeks now, and the bizarre side effects have gone away, but I'm still not sure if it's doing anything for me. I know these things can take a few weeks to set in, and I have to call my doctor and talk to him.

But once (if) it starts working, I'm not really sure what all it's supposed to do. I feel like the random sobbing should go away, and I'd really like it if I had an easier time letting bad things go. But I'm not sure what else. Do these things keep you from feeling like crap all the time? Or just take away the edge?

I just don't really wanna walk away from this disappointed. But I also don't know what I should be expecting.
