I've been on Lexapro for almost a year as well as Klonopin to control my anxiety. Something is amiss because I haven't been happy for the past week or so. I walk around work "angry" or just looking "pissed." I don't really know what is causing it. I am seeing a therapist and will be seeing her tomorrow. I've gained 15 pounds of what I've lost last year. I just don't feel well. On top of depression and anxiety, I suffer from IBS and Ulcerative Colitis.
I just don't want to do anything lately. I love my job (I'm a 6th grade teacher), but lately I rather be anywhere but here. We've dealt without a contract for the past three years, and I cannot go to Board meetings, picketings, etc. due to my Ulcerative Colitis. I've noticed that once I overdue it, I pay for it by getting a flare-up and then taking off from work.
Is it possible for the medication to not work anymore? I am not going to see my doctor until January. All I feel like doing lately is crying. I also have my period, so I don't know if its hormonally related.
Any insights? All I want right now is some Starbucks Frappacinos, my bed, and tv!
