I have social anxiety and OCD (and depression, but that doesn't really apply here). The combination leads me to ruminate about every social situation I encounter. I am constantly worried that I said the wrong thing, hurt people's feelings, made people mad, creeped people out, thinking the person hates me and is just pretending to be a friend, etc. 99% percent of the time I haven't said anything remotely bad or that could be taken the wrong way. But in the moment, my brain goes there and it all feels so real. As a result, I am constantly asking for reassurance. "Are you mad at me?" "Did I do something wrong?" "Do you hate me?" Now, this can be annoying for people, and stressful as they feel pressured into always having to reassure me. The thing is, I ask these things because I genuinely feel I did something wrong, at least at that time, and I want to make sure I'm not burdening people. Because if I am, I want to fix it or leave them alone or whatever. How do I balance being a good person and ensuring I didn't do anything wrong with not acting out of anxiety?
Im sick of this!
Has anyone else who has taken Prozac had an abnormal EKG? My pdoc ordered it and I was told it is "expected" with certain medications but I am wondering if it is as common as was implied? So just curious if anyone else out there has experienced this. I've been on Prozac for about a year. Now of course it is being discontinued but I'm curious why I wasn't checked for this previously or even warned...
