I’ve been doing nothing but sleeping for the past couple of days. I was taking an antidepressant medication called Fluoxetine but found that it made me sick and feel like shit a lot of the time so I’ve decided to stop taking it and it is taking a bit of time to get used to not having it in my system.
I’ve read so many horror stories online about how people who take it will need to be on it for life and that long term usage can cause damage to your internal organs. Not that I care about that, I probably did more damage with the two recent overdoses.
The side effects were also quite worrying. I found myself being sick a lot and feeling nauseous pretty much all the time, I felt drained all the time from doing the simplest task and I noticed I had started to pile on the weight again.
It is just not worth the hassle of taking them anymore.
To be honest I only took them to make certain people happy, which didn’t work anyway.
Although I stopped taking them a couple of days ago I am still finding myself getting easily tired. Hopefully once it is out of my system my energy levels will return to normal.
Just writing this has tired me out. Time for sleeping.
I am running the 2018 London Marathon to raise money for Livability UK in memory of my dad. If you can I'd appreciate any donation you can spare. http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/deansaliba
