I started Prozac in 2010 when life handed me multiple lemons. It basically helped take the edge off, and I wasn't so down (although, life DID stink, so I had plenty to be down about)
Fast forward to 2012. I tried going cold turkey off Prozac. I got dizzy spells and was really irritable. Went back on them and all was well. I had just moved with wh at the time, so it probably want the smartest idea to quit Prozac then.
In 2013 I was at a stable point, asked the nurse practitioner, weaned myself off. Felt good. In 2014 I started really packing my kids schedules with activities (maybe to be so busy i dont have to deal with feelings?) , and found myself worrying about stupid stuff (do they have enough friends, will their recital be OK, etc.). I am also feeling very anxious about them growing up, as in dreading driving, dating, etc... (They are preschool and elementary school age???!!!)
I have also been snapping at them a lot.
All signs point to, I need to go back on Prozac.
I just don't want to be Dependant on that forever.
Also, in 2013, I was thinking I'd like to try for another baby in 2014, and I didn't want to be on Prozac then. Baby plans have been shelved indefinitely (I'm just not emotionally where I need to be with me or wh to have a baby now)
Any advice? I'm letting minor things get to me and really getting irritated with little stuff. I just LIKE myself and life in general better on Prozac. Should I try stress relief activities before going back on ADs? Any natural remedies?
To be honest, I think I still need some therapy regarding the fall out from my bad year 2010. Could therapy be what I need not prozac
