Default Medication stopped working :/

I was diagnosed with Anxiety and Depression about a year ago and i've been on Anti-depressants for about 5/6 months, things were going really really well, the medication was really helping.

I used to not be able to leave the house for weeks and now I have a full time job for example!

I spent 5 weeks in hospital recently due to a unrelated physical illness and noticed then that my mood was becoming more like it was before, I was feeling more depressed then I had been for the last few months, I thought it was just from being in hospital.

I came out from hospital about 5 weeks ago and I still feel the same, honestly, I feel really really worse. Ive spent hours crying, I can't bring myself to even shower, let alone go to work. (I've managed to get my managers to be okay with me not coming in due to an accident at work but I can't keep using that as an excuse forever). My anxiety levels are much much higher, I've considered self/harm suicide for the first time in months.

It doesn't help that I also discovered I was pregnant while in hospital. It just adds to the stress of everything as I have chosen to have a termination but to do so I have to wait weeks as I have to go to a specialist hospital for the termination. I just can't do anything anymore. I've asked to have less hours at work, but that can't start till next months but honestly I don't think i'll make it into work before then.

Any advice would just be reallly really helpful, thanks!

First off, I'm very sorry to hear that you're dealing with all of this in such a short time. I'm obviously no doctor, but is it possible the amount of stress you've had over this amount of time has overrid your current dosage of meds? I'm assuming you've talked/are talking with a doctor about this D:

Definitively talk to a doctor/psychiatrist. finding the right medicine and the right amount is a very tricky process. even the professionals struggle with it. best of luck to you
