So...I'm one of those people that laughs through life, I have bad times but also lots of good times. I have been a single mum with 2 beautiful children for 10 yrs, they are my world and my life. I've muddled on, worked 2 jobs and gave my kids some fantastic childhood memories. Last year, I sadly lost a parent, my rock. Did I grieve? No! I cracked on and made sure everybody was ok. I then started to date thinking 'this will take my mind off it'. Did it? No! 12 months on, the guy I was dating was a cheat! Did I grieve for the pain it caused me? No! Did I still grieve for my mum? No! I got a different job instead! Suddenly, about a month ago, I felt weird, I didn't feel right, I wanted to sleep all the time and felt very agitated, like I can't describe! The headaches were unbearable and I couldn't stand noise! I didn't feel sad, I felt ill! I didn't want to talk or be with anybody, and I actually thought I was going to die! Then one day, I walked in to my kids arguing (as teenagers do) I actually flipped, I couldn't stop crying and screaming, hurrendous! Next day I finally went to my gp! He mentioned anti depressants as he thought I was suffering from anxiety! I laughed! Me? Never! He gave me 10mg of citalopram..I reluctantly took one and within 6 hours, the headache that I'd suffered for weeks, had started to lift! I couldn't believe it! After 5 days I felt so much better..then BOOM..the headache returned! I rang my gp who was fab and told me to up the dose to 20mg..headache gone within hours! I am now on day 12. Fingers crossed I have had no side effects at all! I sleep like a baby, and wake up feeling like I have actually been to sleep! None of the nightmares I was suffering before the tablets! It seems I had all the side effect symptoms before I took the tablets, if that makes sense! I still feel a little confused, but nothing like before! And my memory is shocking, but I'm hoping that will change the longer I'm on it! I never realised I was so anxious, till now I can think straight! So far this has been a life saver for me! I wanted to throw a positive out there! I've even cleaned my house daily again since taking them, that had left me too. Good luck everyone, I honestly hope these tablets work for you x
