I am on Crestor, Prilosed, Premarin, Vesicare, vitamins, and, of course, the Fluoxetine.
I am a RN but have been retired several years. I live with my husband of 49 years. In another area of our large home my son, his wife and two daughters live. Other family lives all around us. We get along well...are not an argueing family.
Yes, for the extensive psych. testing
I am on 80 mg Prozac daily. No, I don't believe they are under control, but strangely, I am able to be smiling and responsive with a friend or a group, or, for that matter, with my children and grandchildren. I am open with my feelings with my husband of 49 yrs.
I sleep well...in fact, too well. Lack of energy? That varies according to the job to do and the pressure behind it. I keep a clean, attractive home, well stocked kitchen and serve wholesome, tasty meals. My husband is very supportive, kind and gentle. I feel loved by him and by my five children, their mates, and the nine grandchildren. I have always been a leader, but am not as comfortable being so now. I do attend church and women's Bible Studies. I think I am probably less eager to speak up there, but the groups are small and younger women have many questions, so I either listen or respond to them.
You asked about appetite...about average or less, I would say. I fight with myself to avoid a "quick fix" with carbs/sugars for I know that is a temporary relief. I am within a few pounds of my ideal weight.
As for managing my day to day life... I can function but am quite forgetful and write notes to myself and keep an indepth calendar of activities. Sometimes I feel as if my head is full of mud and bells. I have a constant ringing in my ears...loud. Tomorrow I am visiting Beltone to see if I can get help from a hearing aid.
