I am not sure how to start.
This is my first post here. My name is Lucy and I am a 49 yr old wife and mom to 3 ( plus one son in law). I have been on Effexor for 9 years due to anxiety/ depression. I am questioning now if I should talk to my dr. About changing. Can your body just get immune to a drug?
bottom line is we have had a rough couple of years with lost jobs, lost family and friends, etc. What I can't seem to do is get all the parts of me to come together. I know rationally there re so many people worse off than me. We are healthy, fed, clothed, and love each other. I do know this but my mind starts telling me that things are never going to be normal again ( my husband is employed again after 10 months less money but he has a job) . I find myself wanting to sleep except at night. I cook and eat tremendous meals because it is something I can do and I am good at it. I am distancing myself from my husband but I really don't know why. Have you ever just told yourself he really doesn't care how or what ou are feeling? I am in that stage because he sees he positives whereas I see the negatives.
I guess I just hate the fact that I can't be thankful and trusting when I know I should be. Thanks for listening, Lucy
