What's your experience stopping antidepressants? #prozac #Depression #Fluoxetine

Hey, I've been in a good place lately and I've been thinking about quitting my #Antidepressants
I'm pretty sure I'm having some side effects to the medication and I've been thinking about quitting for 4 years. I'm just scared to try. The what ifs and all.
If you have any experience in quitting to take antidepressants, please share! Or any info at all about it

Anyone experience COVID rebound?

So I had COVID a couple weeks ago, returned to work following resolution of most symptoms and 10 days of quarantine, still wearing a mask. But I had a persistent cough that I was controlling through cough suppressants and expectorant (I have a history of post-viral bronchitis) and was still very tired. I’ve been dragging through the last week and a half at work and thought I might be getting through it. I figured the lagging symptoms were an ME crash from getting sick. But this morning I woke up with a low grade fever, completely exhausted, and a much worse and highly productive cough. The CDC has some statement out that COVID rebound can happen to anyone regardless of paxlovid (which I wasn’t taking), so I’m just wondering if anyone else has experienced this or had a worsening of ME or Fibro symptoms after COVID? #MyalgicEncephalomyelitis #Fibromyalgia #COVID19

Mundane

I used to take the mundane tasks we do day to day for granted before I developed Chronic Fatigue. I used to think that doing tasks such as going to work, doing the washing, making dinner, cleaning etc were second nature and I’d be doing them until the end of time with no second thought.

Chronic Fatigue affects my day to day life and I never imagined that I’d have to ‘ ration’ my energy to last throughout the day. For example sometimes I need to decide between taking the washing in and/ or putting it away, sometimes I need to decide if I could factor in making my bed with clean sheets or if that would send me into a crash.

One of my biggest fears is that one day I won’t have any energy left to do things such as work, clean up after myself or even make myself food! what would happen to me if that were to happen? how would I eat? how would I support myself financially?

I hope I never have to answer those questions. I live day to day trying to ration my energy and trying to not live one of  my worst fears.

Wish me luck!

Just a quick question

Does anyone else get physically ill whenever they get upset or angry? Everytime I have an argument or disagreement with family or have any kind of upset, I instantly start feeling ill. My fatigue gets worse and I get pain all over my body.
I just had an argument with a sister and now I'm lying in bed feeling like I have the flu. I hate m.e and fibromyalgia!

Describing fatigue

#MyalgicEncephalomyelitis #ChronicIllness

Something which frequently crosses my mind is the desire to be able to truly convey to someone what I am feeling when I talk about fatigue/exhaustion. It’s hard for me to find the words which describe how phenomenally awful it is, as every tiny portion of energy produced by each cell just evaporates. I fondly remember the days when I felt a ‘normal’ tiredness or fatigue which one could push through, and after a night’s rest it would be gone. Anyway, just wish I could help people who aren’t suffering from it to understand how it feels more effectively.

Does anyone have any hacks for like apartment living and stuff?

I hope that makes sense. I’m hopefully moving into my first apartment in 2021 and I’m looking at hacksaw make it all easier. I also have a service dog. So hacks including service dogs also work. Sorry if this is all confusing 😅
