So last night I messaged my work and told them about how I had been feeling the past few days, I said to them that I wouldn't be in today due to my side effects.
I feel guilty for calling in sick, it's the second time I've done it. But my managers have been understanding about it, one in particular who has had a lot of experience with Fluoxetine.
I just want to feel better, the side effects keep fluctuating: up and down, up and down. I keep telling myself it is temporary, but part of me keeps wondering how much more I can take.
This morning I woke up feeling alright, some small racing thoughts of anxiety, the nausea felt reduced this morning too. I still think quite a bit about my side effects.
A lot of people have told me that I should be nearing the end of the adjustment period. My manager said that if I had been feeling incredibly rough for the past few days then is should start working soon. And my GP told me that the effects should be wearing off too.
I get small blips of positive mood, along with tiny thoughts of enthusiasm. I'm still eating, it can be a slight struggle sometimes but I can finish meals. I still have shaky moments from time to time.
I'm trying to brave through it, a lot of the time I just distract myself with videogames, youtube videos and television, it helps. I just hope that I will come out of my shell soon and be back to being more sociable and bubbly.
