Ive been feeling disconnected from the world lately. Im afraid

Customer Question

I've been feeling disconnected from the world lately. I'm afraid to leave my house. I have not been able to drive cause I get panic attacks. I feel afraid of everything. I feel like I died And I don't exist and I want to cry and sleep and not wake up. I feel alone and nobody understands me or what I'm going thru. I went to a doctor And they put me on zoloft but I don't think it's working. I'm more afraid now than I ever have been. What do I do?

Customer: Hi
Luann :

I am sorry to hear you are feeling so depressed. I don't know when you started the zoloft but it does take several weeks to build up to a therapeutic level. If it has been a few weeks, go back and see your doctor.
