I have been to the doctors today as I lost my dad 7 weeks ago and coped very well for the first 5 weeks then went downhill.
The doctor said I have had a nervous breakdown from my symptoms which are the following.
Too scared to sleep then wake up screaming
Jumping at every noise
Paranoia about people
Feel really unsafe in my house and out places
Shaking hands and knees
Head shakes up and down
Feel people are sick of me
Real fear for no reason
Mumbling when talking
Pulling eyelashes out
Confused a lot
Crying for no reason
I've also started using a comfort blanket again which I haven't done since I was 4. I took a liking to a particular feel of one of our pillowcases and used it very single night till my husband bought me a child's blanket in the same material. It started just using it at night but now if I can't find it when I wake during the night I go crazy and very anxious till I find it. Also it's started coming with me around the house and today I took it to the doctors with me in my handbag so I could put my hand in my bag and feel it when anxious.
Sorry for the long topic I just wanted to explain what's been happening and see people opinions if I should start taking these tablets. I am not nervous about trying them but I am nervous about the potential of being hooked and having a very hard withdrawal.
In the next year or so me and my husband would like to try for a baby so would defo like to be off them by then if possible.
Does anyone have any thoughts?
