Cheers, will do.
Just keep having doubts now about whether medication is right for me or necessary. I’ve been in my current funk for about 3 and a half weeks, can feel my head clearing now that my health anxiety has been addressed and I’m no longer panicking that I might be dying, I just have this lightheadedness/dizziness following me around that I want rid of, which might not necessarily be anxiety related anyway.
Outside of these panicky spells which are infrequent and usually triggered by health paranoia and have in the past only ever lasted a few weeks at a time, my mental health isn’t usually too bad - I can be a bit of a socially anxious person prone to nerves and awkwardness, quite lazy and unproductive, and can occasionally feel a bit existential or isolated but spend most of my brain time obsessively nerding out about music or whatever and can usually distract myself from worries relatively easily.
When the doctor mentioned medication I jumped at it but wondering if I’ve jumped the gun now, feels like a bit of a commitment that I might not need. Just feels like I’m voluntarily signing up to feel rubbish for another week or two (and potentially again in a few months if I come off them) when I might be on the mend already?
Though I guess if it improves those negative aspects of my everyday life listed above (which it’s never occurred to me to medicate for) then it could be worthwhile? And a four week lockdown might be a decent time to give it a go.
Think I said yes to medication immediately as I was feeling rotten and hoped it would just be a quick fix but it feels a little more complicated than that now.
