Do you hate the job? The people? Or just the process of getting up every weekday, going to work, coming home, rinse and repeat.
That I hate work I hate the process I hate been a ******* slave and having jack s**t to show for it. I hate where I live and hate ******* Melbourne. My actual job I like and want to continue just not sure I'll be able to get work in 3 years interstate because I want out

Feeling like a drain on my partner. Life is getting unbearable.

Well that’s a crappy feeling. Can you talk to your partner about it?

My anxiety is a constant companion and a drain on my family.

If only there was a magic wand.

Yeah, but she's starting to get exhausted. I know she'll always be by my side, but it's a rotten feeling to know you're burdening someone.

She's not being nasty or anything, but I can just tell she's getting stretched a bit thin.

Have an appointment on Saturday to discuss medication with my GP, at the recommendation of my psychologist though. The last 3 days have also been my first days sober this year. Small steps.

I’m glad she’s supportive.

Getting the right medication can be challenging.

I’ve been sober for 18 months, and not going to lie those early days were tough but * me Im so glad to be free of it.

My therapist kept saying that I needed to learn to sit with my feelings and I really wanted to say you sit with these ******* feelings!

I had to think of it like going to the gym with zero fitness and working my way slowly towards fitness, increasing my strength etc, but there were some really tough days.

Sounds like you need to change something up mate. Get a new job, move towns, book a holiday, just something to mix it up. If you're hating everything about your life then focus on making a couple of big changes and start planning on how to make them work.

Started on Lexapro yesterday. Will take a few weeks to kick in, but I think it's going to help.

Weird side effect - took my first dose yesterday and my eyes had the same feeling as you get when a MDMA or an LSD trip is about to start lol

My vision was a bit funny, and it felt like my pupils were super dialated. I checked in the mirror and I looked fine, but it felt weird.

ssri ok , hope you feel the effects soon, I believe you can feel immediate effects but it is generally known to take weeks / months
