So after a horrendous 2013 with failing health I’ve decided to have a go at making 2014 a better year. I have been up and down for as long as I can remember after a bad childhood, sexual abuse and an abusive marriage. It got to a point where I went to my doctor begging for help as I couldn’t make it from one hour to the next let alone get through each day. I was put on cymbalta 30mg and apart from feel sick, the side effects are no different from what I was already suffering from. I started seeing a counsellor again after four years. One week after I started seeing her, my husband (we’re separated) tried to hang himself and my kids are really suffering despite best efforts to keep things ‘normal’. I start a new job today after 2 1/2 years of no job and school starts in a few days and I also have a specialist appointment to pinpoint whats been making me sick for a year. The last few days I’ve felt manic, talking fast and compulsively cleaning and sweating heaps while nighttime means no sleep, anxiety, biting my nails and my mystery aches and pains coming back. Today I have just been binge eating and feel tired. I am doing a bit better this time because I have a small support system of friends and family, a counsellor and the doctor so I’m really hoping I feel better soon.
