I just started PROzac within the month (as well as finding out I have OCD) and I've started noticing a few moment where I don't have any fear during something that is usually very triggering. For example: my 3 yr old climbing things he "shouldn't", I usually feel so anxious and feel the need to make him stop, but last night all I noticed was my lack of fear in the moment and I was totally chill. In which I then cried bc I assumed the meds must be working 😅 I haven't started ERP yet, but I'm interested. Especially nearing a transitional place with therapy.
Also, it has been about 3 weeks and I'm just now noticing these things. Also noticed I've been able to start tasks knowing I won't finish them in that go, and been totally ok with it 🤯
@ptr0nzor Wow that's incredible! I've been doing erp for a while but feel like I need a combo of that and meds. Last time I tried ssris I didn't wait out the side effect period so never got to see if they really worked for me. Now I gotta stick it out and see it through. I'm hopeful though
