Adjusting to new prescription of Citalopram. Anxious, shaky and dry mouth. Feel horrible but hope it will be worth it if I can stick out these first few weeks.

Definite lift in mood over the course of the morning. Sat outside in the sunshine for a little while watching the puppy play

More sleep so not quite as anxious this morning

Doctor warned me that meds could make anxiety slightly worse for the first week. I'm hoping that explains why I've not had my more usual upswing as the day went on.

SSRIs the side effects can last a week or two. As well as the anxiety, if you get nausea don't worry it won't be forever.

Having an anxious wobbly episode. This puppy we got is exhausting me and I keep having automatic negative thoughts that this has been a huge mistake.

Got through the day and felt better about things as the day went on. Mood slipping down again now though. Maybe linked to tiredness?

Sticking to my OH like a limpet. Feel weak

A river will stick to the rocks below tighter than any bond, yet the water is far from weak. Let feelings have their time and place, but don't judge them one way or another because we can never see the full picture all of the time.
