I was told by the Doctor that part of my anxiety and depression is from drinking 2 cups of coffee in the mornings and a can of Soda in the evenings. I have cut back to a cup but can't seem to stop taking it. It is the only thing that makes me feel better from this horrible depression..
I was prescribed Cymbalta, but am frightened of taking it, because I don't want to lose my job, if I am getting nauseaus and sick every day from it. I know they say it takes 4-6 weeks...that seems so long. I can't afford right now to lose any time from work. There are potential layoffs and I fear I may lose my job if I take time off being sick from medication. I am increasing the SAM-e which I have been on for three years (which was okayed by the Doctor) to see if that will help, will give it a week, but then will probably have to go on the Cymbalta if increasing doesn't help, because I can't take feeling this way any more. I wept this afternoon..my chest felt so tight and I just felt so down and miserable. Have been restless and pacing around..feeling very distracted as well. This is the pitts.
I am fine when I am at work, but coming home from work, I have this sense of dread of coming home to an empty apartment and trying to find something to do on weekends..I just feel so lonely, I was never this way when SAM-e was working and I am back to the same way I was before I started taking it. I try to get out and walk..but I still feel down and plain old awful. Thanks for listening.
