...it’s been a while. I’ve actually been trying not to post on here- as it’s like admitting that I’m struggling again!
Actually feeling anxiety as I write this!
I last wrote on here in April/May when I went through a stressful period and decided to increase my dose from 20 - 30 then to 40! (Big mistake!) lol eventually I went back to 20 and my body seemed to balance itself out... all was good- went on holiday, felt good... happy days!
Recently, I got into a new relationship- it’s been 2 and a half months. I really feel strongly about this person and I’ve started stressing, you know how it goes constant ‘what if’s’. It’s making me ill, can’t keep food down, constantly anxious, stressed, tight chest, headaches.
Prior to this, I had felt fine and only been taking my tablet every other day, sometimes not taking it for days at a time. Felt absolutely fine. Then, at the beginning of the November I panicked and thought- what if I get ill while this relationship is new?! Ever since, it’s been a downward spiral... anxiety attacks, panic that I know is unwarranted... but it feels so real.
So since then, I started taking 20mg every day again, have been taking it again for about 8/9 days now and still feeling absolutely crap... really worry how this will affect my partner as he is so lovely and I feel he doesn’t deserve this as he’s had enough to put up with!
Do you think this could be related, to me not taking my tablets and then starting regularly again?
I honestly feel like switching medication... as this is the second quite bad blip I’ve had since being on it...
Or should I give myself a while to adjust to taking them regularly again?
All advice welcomed and hugs to everyone!
