I'm totally off Cymbalta for almost a year now. I will have to re-read it to see my timeline since I did start this thread almost 3 years ago.
Am I better? I wish I could say I am. The brain zaps are gone, but the depression is still here. Maybe it's the holidays that are coming up that causes/continues my depression? The fatigue is still here. All I want to do is sleep and eat.
I had a fairly major surgery in September to try to stop some of the same side effects that C causes, maybe it's rebound depression from the anesthesiology drugs? I am 98% recovered from surgery. Those who want to know what kind it was, please PM me, I'm not keeping it a secret, I just don't want to splash it all over the internet.
I'm bored with my life, I don't like my job only because it's not busy enough for me. Remember I'm older, 63, almost 64, I lost my job a year ago and I've been consulting with a former client but it's turned into a part time remote job. I'm not good with remote work. I have another part time client stating in February, and I am dreading it. Why am I projecting negative feelings onto this? I really would like a full time job in my city, but I feel I'm too old to interview and get a job like that.
I really need a life! All I do is sleep and read the internet. How do I find hobbies/friends at this stage in my life?
Thanks to those who read this far!
