I have been on citalopram for roughly 6 weeks. I was originally on 10mg for the first month then I crashed and my doc moved me up to 20mg. From where I was 6 weeks ago to where am now is like night and day. I have come so far . When all this first started I was a complete mess. I could not work eat or sleep. I was unable to function properly. Now I am on my normal routine again with most days pretty good. The problem is now I am still not quite feeling like me. I feel very emotional and that's not me. I'm a 25 year old male who before this bottled all my problems up. The feeling is hard to explain. I don't sit and cry but I do start thinking about something and dwell on it for far to long then it upsets me. I try so hard to stop but I cant. I'm wondering if I had such a severe case of anxiety that now that I'm taking the meds if it has lessened my severe anxiety to a typical axiety disorder. I really don't know. I'm so lost and so confused. I try to explain to people what I'm going through and they really don't understand what I'm dealing with. I really wish I could explain my feelings so much better but they are so unexplainable. I really feel like my friends and family are tired of hearing about it. This makes it so much harder on me because I need to the support. I get the same old response just breath and stop stressing about it. You'll be ok they say. I'm so thankful for you guys helping me on here. I really feel like talking to you all has helped me so much. I know I have a long way to go and I know I need to be patient but I just feel so lost. Please if anyone has advice or any similar problems please share. I could use all the help I can get. Thank you!
