I started taking this SSRI (10mg) 2 days ago. It is to help with anxiety and stress around exams and studying.
I am so reluctant to take medication of this kind as it feels like I am giving up. No longer fighting. And potentially losing a part of myself, as i dont know how the pill will affect me. I dont want to feel numb.
I am usually a very happy person and i bring that happiness into the lives of many. Now i cant even find 1 positive thought for myself. Everything is negative. I see no upside, and dont believe I am good enough to pass exams and remember things despite evidance to the contrary.
All this aside the pills have increased my anxiety alot. I am currently in bed and cant get out. Crying. Shaking. And scared as i no longer want this feeling.
My partner told me today "i cant do this anymore, I am here for u and I will listen but I cant help you" she is drained and past her limits. Makes me feel even more alone.
I am seeing a psychologist for the first time in my life tomorrow and I am very scared. I need help and want help but I am scared of t as well. Possibly be ause gettin it makes me feel weak.
Any advice. Stories. Is anyone else feeling like me?
