Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.


Not taking any more Luvox.

Felt so ill all day. Exhausted, nauseous to the point of not being able to eat anything, massive headache all day, jittery and trembling.

I can’t handle it.

It’s my son’s Birthday tomorrow and we have a day out at a theme park planned on the weekend. I can’t get through that, feeling the way I do today.

Day one of new medication…. not good.

Contrary to what I was told would likely happen, I had even worse trouble getting to sleep than normal, probably only slept for about 3 hours. It definitely did not make me sleepy. Quite the opposite.

And this morning I feel very tired, headache, shaky and nauseous.

There is a part of me wants to say screw this and stop taking it. I’m already exhausted enough.

And there’s another part of me thinks I should give it time, as these side effects may ease.
