Felt like I needed to give a wee update after a couple of months of utter hell and several years of feeling off.
After 5 weeks on 100mg Sertraline I finally FINALLY finally feel like I did way toward the end of the last decade. I feel energetic, happy, empathetic and most importantly all the years of cynicism appear to have dimmed and faded. I’m no longer a judgemental prick and am able to engage and start conversations.
It’s SUCH a relief because honestly, with the odd exception, the last 7 years have been such an incredible ball ache for me that I thought it’d never end. It was like being held hostage by the version of me I didn’t like. The tired, judgemental prick that’d be unsociable and rely too much on self-deprecating humor to talk to anyone, still early days but I’m hopeful that this happy, perky, confident and motivated me is here to stay.
