I feel broken. I feel like a squeaky toy that has lost its squeak.
I was on 20mg Citalopram from January til March, and I thought that I was doing well; I was back in work after being off for a long time with physical illness then depression on top but then I asked to go up in April because my Dad had had a stroke, and it affected me (crying, staying in bed, no appetite) then he had to have a Carotid Endarterectomy because his carotid artery had become calcified, which could have caused the stroke. A gp put me up to 30mg but it's not really having an effect.
I have now been off work for about 2 1/2 weeks because I had vomiting, sickness and diarrhoea then a viral infection effecting my tonsil.
I don't know if its phyical illness that causes the depression to step up. I just want to stay in bed.
As I said, I feel broken. I don't feel right in myself. I'm having CBT next week (I hope its a session because the last two have just been questionnaires).
Can anyone relate?
