1 week on meds isn't enough time to feel a difference. It can take up to 4-6 weeks. Hopefully sooner but medically speaking, a good 4-6 weeks. I too find myself asking "why me?", "why/when is this going to go away?" I'm pretty sure every. single. person. on this forum have asked the SAME questions at some point in their journey.
You are not crazy or alone or the first or last person to go through this. I know it most certainly feels like it but you are not! I've been praying a lot, on my knees bawling kinda prayers, begging for relief. It occurred to me to day, like a (kind, not crazy lol) voice in my head to just "listen." Listen for the answers. Look for them! I've been so caught up asking, begging and praying that I've forgotten to listen! That's my new M.O. right now is to listen.
I pray for relief for you today,
open ears, wisdom and courage. I also pray for you, me and the rest of us, to learn!!!!! from this trial bc guess what, it WILL end, it WON'T be forever but the challenge will be if we LEARN from this so that we will be able to add another tool or 10!, to our utility belts of life.
God Bless You SOIA!!! I have faith in you!!!
