Hi, I've been suffereing from anxiety and depression roughly since Jan (I had about 1-2 years of severe anxiety as a child but the past 7-8 years I had only mild anxiety). I was put on fluoxitine 20mg as I've been on it in the past. I'm only on my 4th day and I can't take anymore. My head feels constantly light, tingly, itchy, sometimes burning just unpleasant. My thoughts are all over the place, constant nasty or horrid thoughts. I keep thinking stupid things like everything isn't real and I'm hallucinating. For example my mum was in hospital but she was fine and recovered but I keep thinking maybe she didn't and I've gone mad and am hallucinating or something. Thing is, these thoughts upset me but i dont fight them nor do they cause a proper worried/panicked reaction so I'm scared that I'm accepting it as truth. Everything looks odd or weird, if I try distracting myself I just get more weird or stupid thoughts. I can't do this much longer, whats the point if this is the rest of my life? I'm sick of having stupid confusing thoughts.
