Pills effect: 10 days later
When did the pills start to take effect ?
I started to take my antidepressants on a Tuesday, without any significant effect for several days after that. Only the Saturday (or was it the Sunday ?) of the week after did I begin to feel something.
The first feeling that came to me was euphoria. I was watching some episodes of “How I Met Your Mother” with my lady and I found the show funnier than usual. Very funny actually.
Since then, I feel “removed” or unconcerned from everything. That was one of the expected result from what my physician said. Being a little less close to the emotional aspects of things to be in a better position to face my issues.
I think I can say that it is working. Yes, but ! There is always a “but”.
When a feeling occurs or disappears, should I put it on the result of my reflections or on a chemical reaction ?
Moreover, I am scared by my own self. I feel so distant that I am able to have some very strong (not extreme) and express them without any circumlocution or tact. I feel like a very cold and calculating. I am really scared by myself. I do not like that side of me.
Let’s assume that this is a positive aspect for the current time. I am less concerned by my emotions, I think, I act, I move on. What will happen when I stop taking the pills ?
My doctor tells me that there will be no “bouncing effect”. Ok. But my emotions will come back, eventually ! In what condition will I be when I will run on emotions (what I usually do apparently) again ?
My “me” is my intellect plus my emotions (plus everything else). Will my “me” be happy of the situation he is in ?
I want my Hyde and Jekyll sides back ! I want my Bruce Banner and my Hulk sides to be back together and merge into what is ultimately “me” !
For that, I need to wait until things are “back in order”. That means a lot or on the contrary in may mean nothing.
Since the antidepressant started to take effect, the sensation of being “removed” only grew (at a rather slow pace though). I wonder where this will get me, I am a little worried. I feel paradoxically unconcerned enough to face any coming complication when the complication occurs.
