I know that I am only on day two and that the flu hasn't fully built up in my system yet but did anyone else have moments in their first couple of days where you briefly felt back to normal and happyish? I had about an hour yesterday where I felt okay and then after work, I couldn't stop sobbing. Today, for about the last hour and a half or so I feel the same way. This morning, I was a wreck..couldn't eat, had to keeop taking deep breaths and right now I feel weird happy. I am still having thoughts churning and I know in the back of my mind that it is all going to come crashing down in a bit because that is how this medicine works at the beginning. I guess the point of this long post was to see if anyone else had these brief feelings of relief at the beginning but still feelings of negative/anxious thoughts and just waiting for the other shoe to drop and go back to being a basketcase.

      It really didn't last. I got very antsy and had a small panic attack and have been crying off and on since. 😞
