Iv been on flu for 6 weeks and a few days and i thought i was getting stable after going through all the horrible side effects etc Iv been posting on her trying to offer support then yest and today the most i feel totally down again. Back to crying and feeling worthless and not being able to talk to anyone. Why is that? do you think i should up my 20g to more or just keep going on what im on and this stage might pass? Any suggestions would be gratefull as im at a lose end today?

    Sorry your having a tough day. I am now starting to feel a bit better after a few days of 40mg after taking 20mg for a few months. I will keep you posted. Maybe see how it goes, sometimes it doesnt get to its best til week 8. We all will still have good and bad days, just like everyone, but obviously our bad days are hell.

    Hope you can keep hanging on. Take care.

    I just read my post again and realised it didnt make much sense. Sorry. What I mean is I think you should wait on 20mg for a few more weeks to see if it gets better. Sometimes it take 2 months to get to its best level.

    As you can see, I cannot keep away from this site, even when I'm feeling not too bad. Although saying that I am having random panic feelings everyso often, where I feel like I want to cry but cant. Its odd, but at least I feel a bit less 'desperate' if you know what I mean/?

    Listen to me, rambling on about myself. I hope you are feeling better. Write back as soon as you can. ,

    Hi Nicki

    Thanks for replying to my post.

    I'm sure a week in different surroundings will help lift your mood. It seems like the point where things will improve is always just out of reach.

    I had a good weekend away and despite the cold weather i went to the seaside today. It did feel strange (and comments were made by strangers) to walk along the promenade eating ice cream!!

    But now i'm back home the thought of going back to work hasn't put me in the greatest mood. I haven't managed a complete week for 3 weeks now. Will have to wait and see.

    I'll be glad when this nauseating headache has gone. It's really outstaying it's welcome.

    Have a lovely week back home and i hope the snow stays away.

    Take care and keep in touch. xx :x

    Hi again Nicki

    Was hoping a change of scenery would lift your mood. Works for me.

    Still can't shift this damn headache. 5 days is a bit excessive don't you think? It's not there all the time, just hits you in waves of nausea, really horrible.

    Work was predictable. Mood still about a 4 out of ten. Chucking it down with rain all day so could only sit in the park car park. Didn't fancy splashing in the puddles and getting soaked. Maybe it'll stop soon.

    My counsellor rang today and i have my first appointment this Friday. Pity it's Friday the 13th! Still, i shouldn't forget the date, just everything else.

    Well, i hope you have a relaxing time and are able to get some good nights sleep.

    Take care and speak soon. xx smile
