I am feeling so broken today. Like my pieces are scattered everywhere, and I can't reassemble them. I just went off Cymbalta on Saturday after tapering down over four days from 60 mg. My head is spinning, I'm nauseous and I'm feeling so sad. The drug just wasn't working anymore. After 17 years of being on different antidepressants, I'm moving on to yet another one. Will this next one be the answer? I've tried so many over the years, I can only hope and pray.
After reading through some of the posts, it seems that my doctor may have taken me off of this drug too quickly. Am I at the start of a rough ride? How can I make this transition and hold my job and love my family? I can't take a 'time out' from life while the old drug exits and the new drug kicks in. I'm just feeling so lost today. I feel like I'm letting my family down. I feel like I'm on the outside of a party, looking in through the window...watching everyone laugh and have fun and wishing I could do that, too.
I just want to feel good again. I want to feel whole. I want to join the party.
