well, we have survived to day 16, from day 9 i noticed the change in her, i saw her smile, and sometimes laugh, aswell as the black moods that seem to be a side effect, along with the nausea, belly pains, headache, shakes, not being able to sleep, sweats at night, and the list goes on. BUT each day its a diffrent side effect, so that does seem to help in a weird way,
she managed her weekend away, only had one meltdown and anxiety day, and by the afternoon she had got through it. she just woke with thourghts again that she shouldnt be with her boyfriend( of 3 years) that maybe they should finish, these thourghts then faded after a few hours, which is brilliant as before they were 24/7.
its hard being a parent, and watching your child ( i know, she is 19, but still.....) go through the pain of depression, and know i cant make it better, or make it go away, it hurts everyone.
so, i will stop waffling, day 16, we have survived, still got side effects, but she is smiling, 16 days ago she just cried, and sat curled up, didnt much function,
she take a rehydration drink daily, ( lemon& green tea) she takes a probiotic( 20 billion bugs) daily, and a vit b tablet, since being on this combination, her side effects do not seem so strong,
i hope this helps, and you have happy thourghts today. xx
