Hi all - been a while since I logged in so I thought I would see how everyone is doing. Having a bit of an anxious day today but my anxiety is definitely better after almost 2 months back on fluoxetine. Side effects are now pretty much gone except for tiredness (which could also be from my heart issues) and a dull achy head. Definitely got my appetite back and gained enough weight back to show it! I am having heart surgery this Thursday so I'm certain that's why I am feeling on edge. How is everyone else doing?

      Ugh...I know that's frustrating. I hope they can get that figured out soon.

      I'm ok. Weaning off of the fluoxetine so just hoping it goes smoothly with no withdrawal.

      Keep us posted about the date for your surgery. Xxx

      Hi - I did end up having the surgery on Thursday. Apparently the doctor was thrilled that it went as smoothly as it did. However I might still need a valve replacement so I have an MRI on Tuesday. So I'm happy to have it over with at least, although it's my understanding that it takes quite a few weeks to get back to normal. Honestly I feel pretty much no difference post-procedure. But I keep telling myself I need to be patient. I'm so glad you're able to come off of Flu. Sometimes we just need a little boost! I hope it continues to work out for you. Keep us posted xoxo
