You are correct. The celexa should help in a couple weeks. The ativan should help until then. In the meanwhile, try to exercise, avoid alcohol, be around friends, do things you like to do. You are likely on the right track (it is what I would have recommended) so hang in there, knowing there is a lot of reason to be hopeful you will feel better soon.
