Thanks for your thoughts Ian. I am in the medical field, I'm seven years into my career as a physician assistant. My biggest challenge is saying goodbye to my patients, I work in family practice so you really develop an attachment to these people over time. But I'm looking forward, I had an interview that went very well at another family practice yesterday, and have a promising prospect next week with a hospitalist internal medicine group. May be interesting to switch gears for awhile. It looks like we won't have to relocate which is an important thing for me.
My psychiatrist bumped me from 20 mg to 40 mg last week, and in the last two or three days, I'm starting to think maybe this might work out for me. In spite of being darn near a nervous wreck today and yesterday just plain due to the stress, I actually felt calm in the midst of it. I don't know if that makes sense....but I said to myself "Just about anyone would be having some of these symptoms in this situation, not just people with anxiety. I'm pretty much in agreement with you that the fatigue is probably not med related, but we'll see. My end-date at work is June 13th, and I told my husband and my psychiatrist that no matter what I am committed to taking 3-4 weeks off before I start with whatever new job I end up with. I think it's critical to my mental health and they were both in agreement.....might make finances a bit tight for a few weeks but it's worth it. I'm rather looking forward to seeing how Prozac does for me when I'm out of that work environment and can catch up on some rest.
I had actually started back on fish oils rather sporadically and am doing so more regularly. Thanks for the suggestion :)
