hmm i think ill take part in this conversation!
I myself have been diagnosed with social anxiety and take zoloft for it. I tried to kill myself several times, and afterwards upped the dosage, and now im at a comfortable 50mg a night, and have no problems. in fact its been quite a while...almost a year! since ive felt and sadness out of the ordinary cycle of emotions called "life"
I'm also afraid of spiders. I saw one in my room one night and couldnt go to sleep until i killed it...i was up until 5AM until i gave up and just went and slept on the couch. yeah...that was fun
