Hey guys...i just started the Antidepressant: Fluoxetine.
I'm on my fourth day today.
I've been diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and mild depression.
I've had anxiety for two years now. Started off with severe panic attacks and ongoing intrusive thoughts. Was afraid to sleep, afraid to be alone, afraid of my thoughts and mind. I started having compulsions. I was on the internet everyday, searching....trying to figure out what's wrong with me?. Started wondering about my existence, started wondering about death and afterlife. I was searching near death experiences day after day. I started having existential crisis. An ongoing cycle of anxiety, overthinking everything or overanalyzing. But after june this year, i started having out of body experiences. Feeling detached, feeling disconnected, feeling unreal.
For about 3 months of this vicious cycle. And all those symptoms have calmed down now except one. Overthinkng.....overthinking still haunts me but the things my makes up, ain't scary anymore. It's slowly losing a grip on me. I'm slowly returning to normal.
I've told that Fluoxetine helps calm the mind, intrusive thoughts and restores balance in hormones.
All i can say is.....be strong.....anxiety doesn't kill. It doesn't have power over you. It's gonna get better. Just seek professional help, not from the internet....Real help and you'll break the cycle.
