Having a Hard Time Transitioning
Ugh! I am getting sooo frustrated. Today is Wednesday. Monday night I had a hard time sleeping. Tuesday morning (yesterday) I woke up feeling sooo very down. I actually got weepy and had to leave the office for a while to gain control of myself. By evening I was just a bit blue. Last night, I woke up after about 3-1/2 hrs and couldn't get back to sleep. Yet, I got up feeling like I had slept all night, felt upbeat, happy, on top of the world, until about 7:00 am. Then my emotions started to take a dive. I don't understand what is happening except maybe the fact that I am weaning off of Paxil and onto Cymbalta. My emotions are all over the place after not having much emotion for a few years on the Paxil. I called in sick today thinking maybe I need a good cry. I haven't had a really good cry in years, even when my daughter-in-law, who I love, and my sweet grandson were going through life threatening medical issues, I mentally hurt but my gut (emotion center?) was numb--I wanted to have a good cry and couldn't. Maybe, my body & mind is trying to sort it all out and catch up? Oh, I can't wait until Saturday when I'm totally on the one med, Cymbalta. Maybe these mood swings will stop. I don't think I have ever experienced this before and it's just a bit scary.
