After a bad experience in 2019, I ended up on Amitripiline for flashbacks, anxiety and insomnia. Thankfully, they worked well.
However, in June of this year, my beloved father passed away very suddenly. My Mum was completely unable to do anything for weeks after. My eldest DD and myself sorted out the funeral and all the legal stuff and I was more than happy to do this as I wanted to keep busy. I was devastated to lose him and did shed a few tears, and expected to completely break down once I had nothing more to do. But I never have.
My Mum, sister, and my DD’s are often recalling a sudden memory that has reduced them to tears, but my tears never come.
I feel pretty emotionless and heartless, although I know I miss him dreadfully and always will.
I used to cry at programmes (think Children in Need etc) but I just don’t anymore despite knowing that what I am watching is terribly sad.
Do I risk my flashbacks/anxiety etc again and come off of the tablets just to feel emotion again?
Has anyone else experienced this weird experience when on such medication?
I really can’t be bothered with phone consultations which is all I can get at my drs at the moment
