I totally disagree the "full disclosure" part.

It is easy to join the anti medication bandwagon and very hard to then say 'maybe I could benefit from medication after all',

 

Most of us are here after taking medication  and while all of us trusted on doctors who prescribed them.

Pardon me , but I am not talking for myself here.

 

Eleven, 

My memory is terrible as I have read your thread, but forgotten your past comments. IMO, you can see a doctor who is open to all alternatives. For drugs, it is road always there ... and sometimes we have to.chose easy path.

Hi all.

thank you and I agree.

 

i think I have been so low because Iv suddenly realised the situation im in and it feels futile. 

I had a very difficult life that become not only easier but very furfilled on Prozac, it had it's down sides as I was quite emotionally numb and I could not cry but overall I enjoyed life and was very healthy. The withdrawal was excruciating and drove me to almost take my life to get away from the symptoms and after 4 years I know I'm still suffering the nervous system effects but I also now recognise feelings and behaviours I had prior to medication which I wouldn't acknowledge up until now. I have a constant overwhelming feeling of guilt and heaviness in my chest it feels like a thousand tons weighing down on me, I can't make a  decision even the most simple and spend my days wandering aimlessly around my apartment. I feel too unwell to work but the guilt I feel for not being productive or providing is off the scale. All feelings I had before meds. 

 

I will speak to my dr, my ultimate ideal would be to put me in a coma for 6 weeks put me back on meds and wake me up when I feel better. Of course that's just a fantasy. 

 

Thank you for your support it's more helpful that you can imagine

So now go and reclaim your life!  Life is meant to be enjoyed and not endured, it is a gift to each of us and not to be wasted.

Considering the situation and your own statements I'd say you are doing what is right.

 

The transition will be a rocky road like any change is, but it will pay off sooner than you think. I hope you get functional again, start looking for a job and do your runs in 2018.

 

Bless u my dear

Don't forget to come back and tell us of your outcome Eleven10.  This feedback is important for everyone, as I have said before, too many people just stop posting and leave so many questions unanswered.
