    I stopped taking my fluoxetine pills on Sunday, but apparently it takes a few weeks to leave the system, so I still have increased anxiety and other side effects.

    So while I was talking to her today, I just noticed my anxiety was sky high - unusually high, and I blame it on the fluoxetine. Suddenly, I started feeling sick while I was talking, I broke out in a cold sweat, and I became very dizzy. It was fucking scary as hell, and my psychologist helped me relax by getting me a glass of water and telling me it was a very normal reaction to have in her office.

    I've never "fainted" from anxiety before, and the whole ordeal was obviously very scary.
    I was afraid I wouldn't be able to walk home without falling to the ground, but when I finally managed to leave the office, I was surprisingly OK.

    She actually told me that it's a positive thing to experience almost fainting/having an anxiety attack while talking to her, because it means something's "moved". And as odd as it might sound, I think she was actually right. I called my dad on the walk home to tell him what had happened, and we had a really good talk and now I actually feel much better.

    I feel lowered anxiety, and more importantly, I feel "happiness" because I feel better. So I'm feeling really good now for the first time in a few weeks :)

    I've gone from my lowest point (almost fainting from anxiety), to a high point now where I feel I know what I need to do to help myself out of this hole.

    I think subconsciously I've just been incredibly stressed the last few months from not working hard at school, not hanging out with people, not working and making money like I should be, etc, and all the subconscious stress has built up and made me feel worse about myself. I'm going to force myself to turn things around now, because it's the only thing that will make me feel better.

    Personally I'd avoid any of those brainfuck pills. Hang in there.

    What 20 something has anxiety? Get a decent job, spend less than you make, get laid from tinder and live life.

    If you have anxiety at 20, just wait until you are 40.
