Well, at least I know I am not losing my mind! I really thought I was earlier this week. It came to a head on Thursday night. But after a late night call by a friend and crying and weeping and talking for a few hours, I have figured out I’m not losing my mind after all! The medicine I am taking for depression and anxiety is actually causing a whole bunch of side effects. I went to the website for this drug, I have 14 out of 18 side effects! Including nausea, diarrhea, headache, tingling in my hands, drowsiness, excessive tiredness, loss of appetite, weight loss, and more!
I am also just finishing up an amoxicillin prescription, which also causes nausea and diarrhea.
The combined effect has completely knocked me down. A friend today asked if I feel like everything is in slow motion – no it’s more like a dead stop. It’s like the plug has been pulled and all the energy I would normally have has completely drained out of me. I take 3 hour naps and wake up feeling just like I felt before laying down.
Please pray that these drugs would work through my system quickly. I expect it to take at least a couple weeks for everything to get back to normal. But even a slight improvement would be hugely helpful!
