Is this the beginning of the end of getting onto Fluoxetine? Yesterday I was happy! First time in an age but I remembered it well!
First I noticed in a particularly trusting, tender moment with my cat - the one I thought was dying a few weeks ago - I'm happy, glad to be alive to experience this moment.
Later in the day I played a Thea King clarinet concert while I did the ironing then sat in my armchair to listen to the second half - and realised that I felt content and happy, rejoicing the quality of sound and playing - and that the ironing was done! - and the other cat jumped into my lap and settled down, letting me stroke her - extremely soft fur. I felt happy and - dare I say it, Kate? - perhaps even a little joyful!!
A good night's sleep and this morning I'm happy again - despite computer frustrations that would normally drive me crazy. Just coolly and calmly sorted them today. (How many 'l's are there in 'coolly'?)
So is this it? Am I there? In five and a half weeks of taking Flu? Oh! yes, please! Anyway - this is good and I'll accept as many days of it as I get - three forward, two back - but right now all I can tell you is that my life feels good again. Right now, this minute, this second - and that is all I can ask!
The support I've received talking with you guys has been a large part of getting here - thank you for your time and effort in posting. I hope all of us get to this place soon and carry on recovering and find joyful lives again. Good luck on your journey!
