It’s been sometime since I last posted.There is an event I would like to share with you all,I went to visit my psychiatrist three days ago and I told him about my Body Dysmorphia symptoms.After that,he prescribed me fluoxetine but I didn’t take it and threw it in the dustbin on my way back home.It’s not that I don’t trust my psychiatrist,I trust him very well and I like him and he cares about me but I don’t want to take a whole load of meds.I am on Abilify and Mirtazapine,I think I am doing okay and are improving everyday slowly
I still had some body image issue which I think with more social life and therapy can help me overcome.I just don’t want to take the fluoxetine because I don’t hope to depend on it forever.Anyway that’s my story,how are you guys doing?
Stick with what you are doing then… I think slow recovery leads to solid changes.
I’m doing similarly… Have to work in 3 hours… Just woke up… Sleeping on the futon here at a friends which is only a few blocks from work.
I’m hungry and considering getting a coffee before I work but it is cold cold cold… The house is cold. Its still dark out (5 am)… and it’s just cold all around.
I keep my place pretty toasty… Feels like I’m in a space ship and the life support systems went out. Which is cool in its own right… But still. Wish I could bike somewhere and get some food and a warm coffee.
Good to hear from you GTX… It’s me Oddjob/SoitGoes…
If I may ask, why did you report symptoms to your Pdoc if you didn’t want him to act upon them and prescribe medication?
That’s prozac right? It looks like the right type of med for BDD according to google. That and CBT therapy.
i am fine mah…
on increased 10mgs zyprexa…
Yea,I should have wait for my therapy appointment.The psychiatrist is mental health related so I told him
