I used to take Prozac and my goodness, the difference was beautiful!!!! However, I gained weight and I had sexual side effects that made me stop taking them. You see, I have MAJOR health anxiety. I have had cancer twice - both caught before it spread. Had surgery to remove, but did not need chemo or radiation for either. Both related to smoking. I stopped smoking and it has not returned....yet. My awful brain feels like I am caught in a Final Destination movie with death being cancer. Every ache, every pain, I instantly believe it has come back and this time it will kill me. I am at the doctor's every couple of months over a new obssession that I feel is THE ONE. Each time I get checked out and I am perfectly fine. I think I have some ovarian cysts right now that really hurt and I am now convinced I have ovarian cancer. I constantly have to tell myself that I have experienced this same exact pain before, but it doesn't help. I am jumping out of skin until I can get in to my doctor. (Who has also recommended I get back on my prozac). So, I have determined that the side eeffects of the medications are better than living my life in constant fear of when I am going to die. This is just not a fun way to live and I am really scared that when my time is truly up, I wil realize that I had spent all that time worrying about when it would happen. And it certainly seems to be getting worse lately and I don't know why...age, maybe? Anyone else have the same issues?
