Hey all, new to the forums, but have been a long time sufferer of Obsessive Compulsive Dissorder and the intrusive thoughts that go along with it. Recently, after 7 years, I decided to get off of Prozac seeing how it made me feel completely emotionless at times. Currently it has been around 2 months since I stopped taking (doctor said it was fine to stop all at once because of the long half life that it holds) and I have been more anxious than ever before in my life (asside from the one other time I attempted to wein off of it). My thoughts as of tonight are about me forgetting who I am and becoming someone else, almost as if I am the same person with completely different interests staying here and wondering what I am doing. Of course my logical brain tells me that I am still me and knows what is and has been happing in my life as well as who I am. I just can't seem to shake the anxious fog of worry about this thought. It feels like it's just hopelessly surrounding me, of course it doesn't help that I have been at home sick today and my brain isn't functioning all that well to begin with. I think it's about time for Xanax. Thanks for the support and conversation ahead of time.
