AM I loosing my mind?
I broke up with my fiance a month ago. The problem is that I miss him so much. We were together for 3 years. And the past 2 months things have just been going badly for us. He was always willing to work things out. Then he started ignoring me completelt and he treated so badly. He made me feel like a piece of rubbish and he really brought me down. I was on Prozac for 3 weeks and then I met someone else, so I threw the tablets away. I like this new guy but I still miss my ex. I want to phone him and try work things out but then I think of all the times that he treated me so badly. I can't belive that he turned so ugly on me. What am I suppose to do about all these feelings?

Dear N@s,
Maybe it's important to deal with the realities even more than the feelings. You describe a nice guy "always willing to work things out", which implies that there were things that needed sorting out, and then suddenly he stopped being so understanding and changed in his behaviour towards you. Nobody else can guess what that was all about --- you really needed to ask him, and to talk it through with him.
Personally, I would never prescribe prozac for a situation like that, as it is only intended to help a severe and lasting Depression, and not to solve interpersonal problems. If within a short space of time you were able to feel well enough to decide to throw the tablets away, it was not a Depression.
Don'tyou need to decide what you want from the man in your life ? And doesn't that necessarily involve calmly talking things through with them ?
