Re: Fear of taking Zoloft
Can you get a close friend or family member to spend the night and sort of "babysit" (or at least hang out and keep an eye on you)?
Do you have anyone you can trust to do that?
Tell them your fears, tell them you're starting a new medication. Do it on a weekend night, and have a friend sleep over. Watch movies and have pizza. Try to relax and take your mind off the Zoloft... but let your friend know your concerns with starting a new drug, and just have them sort of keep an eye on you for any strange or serious side effects.
I'm sure there will be none, but it might make you feel less scared if you weren't alone the first time you took it.
