Hi everyone… I have been around many years but only really drop the odd post between December and February each season.
As it turns out I am able to look over old posts here and elsewhere and gauge where I am in my seasonal affective disorder which as always is dragging me down. I have however noticed that I am better than 2006 from reading old posts
I kind of feel a bit better posting and there is always the chance someone may read and relate and feel better about themselves too as even now I still get confused about the way I feel now compared to Summer.
This years’ side effects (started Fluoxetine, late October 2015) plan to come off March 2016.
Fidgeting – Typical.
No sweating – Very unusual.
Do not care attitude – New.
Inability to determine consequence for actions – 1in4 times.
Sleep pattern moved to 0200-1100 – Unusual and a pain with work starting at 7am!
Unable to take alcohol – first time ever., Cry! PS. Tablets not for depression so not counter-productive.
Paranoia – New
Mood swings – Not this time.
Here’s to nights getting lighter and thanks for reading this far through.
