Songbird, I like your post. The world "vulnerability" jumped out at me. Partly because as I deal with generalized anxiety,
it does make me fee vulnerable and not quite in control.
I can relate to the question of will I be the same me, am I becoming an alien. How do I get back to the real me?
You're still pretty new to the meds. When I first took meds for depression, it took some time to kick in.
But once it did, it was great.
