I hope you are all doing well. I am not too bad since I am at home with my boyfriend to support me and I am in vacation ( I am a student if you dont remember... I come here very often but I dont write often) I know I am lucky to have this oppurtinity to do nothing but just take care of myself - I stay busy but i dont HAVE to do something and this is a big relief if I dont feel good. I was in school for the first part of my weaning and this was horrible!!! I sympathise with all of you who have to work/take care of children while doing this... I am now at 2.5 (I was at 20 mg for 5 years, start weaning in february)...
2.5 is a rough one... I am always tired and weak, but, thank god I have not too much nausea! I am trying to do everything that people recommend here : drinking a lot (water!), exercice, rest, take multivitamins... but there is one little thing that bothers me a lot... I can not manage the heat! I live in Montreal and it is beginning to be hot and humid out there and I can not stand it!!! I immediatly feel like I will faint, and I feel tired and bad... I dont understand that because I never had problems with that before, I never had an insolation or anything like it. But now I am beginning to fear the sun and the warm weather.. it is crazy!!! Does somebody feel the same? what can I do????
I went to play tennis the other day and it was horrible... I had been awake for like 2hours and after 10 minutes of tennis I felt weak and SSSOOOO tired I would have sleep on the court if possible... Let me tell you, getting out of paxil is something..... sometimes I feel despair and I feel like I will never be my hold self again... I fear more things now that I did before taking the drugs and I hate to be afraid like that! will this stop one day?
sorry for the long email but it feels good not to be alone... any support is accepted with joy!!!!
