I don’t know what is happening with me anymore

Postby raksturtle » Mon Jun 14, 2021 5:52 pm

Hello, this is the first time I’m posting here and I’m asking for help/ opinions because I just can’t think straight anymore.
I’ve been taking antidepressants due to depression and anxiety for three years and stopped taking them one and a half months ago. The first few days were the usual withdrawal symptoms and then everything went back to normal.
Approximately a month ago my problems started :
One day I suddenly started to experience this weird burning sensation in my head, stomach and chest and I was shivering on my whole body. One time I even woke up in the middle of the night and I couldn’t stop shaking for an hour. And I don’t know why this is happening, they feel like some anxiety symptoms? But the thing is, at the beginning, I didn’t have any (intrusive) thoughts while experiencing these symptoms, they just came without particular reasons.
After a few days I started feeling worse, lack of motivation, feeling depressed came on top of these other symptoms. When I’m with people or generally in public I get overwhelmed and start to feel out of place, wanting to leave as fast as possible.
Recently, on top of all problems, I’m starting to feel this way with my partner (3 and a half years relationship). Like I get these thoughts: Is the relationship the right thing for me? Do I love him? Is he still attractive to me?
This gives me so much anxiety because I can’t answer these questions. I feel I don’t know anything anymore, it’s like I can’t form any answers or opinions in my head because everything is foggy. I don’t know why I even get these questions, like there weren’t almost aren’t any problems.
The only problem in our relationship is my loss of libido after taking my antidepressants, that’s one of the reasons I stopped taking them. And my libido problem felt like it was getting better in like the first two weeks, after that my symptoms were starting.

Now my question is, what could be happening to me? Am I having a relapse? Or is it still withdrawal symptoms?
Could I have these thoughts about my relationship due to my mental state? What can I do?
Please help me, I’m really desperate and I don’t know what to do anymore.

Greetings from raksturtle

hello. What antidepressant are you taking? I take silunex 225mg and i think it doesnt cause a complete libido loss but im not sure. The tricky thing about ads is they supress the thing they cure libido loss by depression. There are much more wise people here they may help you.

I'm not a big fan of prescriptions, especially if they are something you will need to take indefinitely.

That said, presumably you were prescribed antidepressants for a medical reason by a licensed therapist, right? Assuming I'm correct, am I also correct that you did not address the libido issue and subsequent ceasing of the medication with your therapist? In other words, you decided on your own to cease the medication?

The reason I'm trying to clarify, is to better answer what you can do. On the surface, it seems like the best option would be to work with a licensed therapist.

Given the complexity of the situation, involving medication, potential withdrawals, a relationship, and multiple ongoing symptoms, it doesn't seem like a very good path to try and figure this out on your own via communications in forums with strangers.

What does your partner think you should do?

Hello,
Yeah I regret taking medication a lot because they made my feelings numb and took my libido BUT without them I probably wouldn’t be alive today.
I actually did talk with my psychiatrist and she made me a plan on in what steps I should cease taking the meds and I followed that plan.

I couldn’t talk with her this whole time because she is on vacation... and the reason I’m writing on here is bc I’m trying to find people who experienced similar things to get a bit of clarity. I know this doesn’t substitute it but I’m so anxious and desperate right now.

A close friend of mine recently had surgery. He had to stick to a rehabilitation plan that required medication and physical therapy. He didn't know if his body was healing correctly. He would not know for some time.

He could call the doctors, but there was not much they could do other than tell him to stick to his medications and physical therapy. Until they took off his bandages they would not know to what extent he would fully heal.

Understandably, my friend wanted clarity. He was anxious, he was desperate to know if he would be better. His emotions were up and down. It was frustrating, because it was basically impossible to gain clarity of the future.

But, my friend was an impressive guy. He repeated to himself, "Stick to the plan." He wasn't clear about his future, but he was 100% certain that he could stick to the plan, that he could take his medications, do his physical therapy, and then whatever happened in the future was outside of his control.

Now, I know your situation is not a physical injury, but there are some similarities. I understand being anxious/desperate to gain future clarity, but that is not always possible. What can you be clear on today, right now? What can you trust? It sounds like you can trust that you have a plan and you can stick to that plan.

I'm sorry, the times that we live in prompts me to ask you this question: Did you take the "vaccine"?

Yes I actually did get my first shot of AstraZeneca and a week later my symptoms started. Why? could this be in correlation?

Thank you, your comment actually makes me think not to lose hope.
I will talk to my psychiatrist when she comes back.

Absolutely. There is a reporting system called V.A.E.R.S.(in the U.S.) to self-report or for physician reporting of vaccine adverse events. Historically, about only 1% of adverse events were reported. The system today is overflowing, to the extent that censorship is taking place even with this system. See this channel —Tim does extensive reporting on the V.A.E.R.S.

He also set up a search engine for accessing the records in the system here. Notice that the second tab one can click is for "shaking".

I forgot that scrolling down on the main page at this site, he posts relevant VAERS videos.

My thought exactly. I didn't plan to ask about it, though!

Blimey!

It astonishes me that a huge majority is having the rushed-out experimental and clearly dangerous jab. For raksturtle to ask so naively whether there could be a connection boggles my mind. I've lost count of how many videos I've watched of constantly shaking jab-havers.

Then again, it also astonished me that so many people happily muzzled themselves and that most have stayed muzzled. I think the muzzle was a complicity test for the jab, which we know they'd been working on for years before they announced there was a Very Deadly Virus.

Oh well. There's no cure for stupid.
