Victoria has given great advice..best to go back to your doctor...6-8 weeks is very early on to be feeling steady on these meds, however best to check. You are doing extremely well dear and yes counselling will stir up things for a while - from experience, I had to learn that it was ok to examine past events but two things to remember to do...
1. remind myself that these are just memories now, traumatic as they may have been - they are history (thank goodness)
2. once I had finished looking back, it was time to pop these memories into an imaginary package and tie a large piece of string around it and stuff it in the wardrobe - right at the back!
In other words..let it all go..because without these events happening in our lives - how can we possibly be the compassionate and understanding people we are today..we have life experiences and we are survivors!!
Keep posting, and lavish yourself with heaps of self praise for your bravery
