Are you listing all the food that you eat in your symptom diary?  If yes, then low blood sugar from not eating regularly throughout the day may be contributing to your symptoms/making them worse.

 

It's important to keep your blood sugar level throughout the day.  You don't have to eat a lot but having small, nutritious amounts of food throughout the day might make a difference with how you feel.

 

From https://www.newhealthadvisor.org/symptoms-of-not-eating-enough.html

 

Symptoms of Not Eating Enough:

 

1. You Have Low Energy

5. You Experience Quick Mood Shifts

8. You Cannot Sleep Comfortably

9. You Feel Depressed

12. You Experience Headaches

This webpage has a diagram showing where and how the body can be affected:

I'll try to list it. Maybe it affects me...

malu, it appears your sleep has been better the last couple of days, is that so?

 

Do you use a computer or tablet before you go to bed at midnight? That could keep you from falling asleep for a while.

Yes, it was better, but today I slept less than 7 hours at night. I managed to sleep again in the afternoon, but I don't feel the sleep was so restorative today. I used both computer and phone yesterday when I was with insomnia.

5 or 6 hours of sleep isn't bad. Computer or tablet use can keep you awake.

 

So it seems you are slowly improving?

You may be recovering from all your drugs and drug changes over the years.

 

You take mirtazapine at 11 a.m. and then sleep during the day? Why do you do this?

I started taking it in the morning because the akathisia was getting stronger in the afternoon so I took it to see if I would be more relaxed throughout the day. I think that maybe taking it before sleeping at night would be better but I didn't changed it yet. How can I change it?

Move it later by an hour each day until you are taking it before bed. A more normal sleep pattern may be better for you.

My sleep is messed up right now. Also I'm worried about when I'm going to change my med, like I'll have to decrease it. But I'm also afraid of it. Doubts about increasing and decreasing.

Hi malu,

Yes, your sleep cycle looks like it is changing a bit.

I'm seeing maybe 4 hours in the early morning and then a big old chunk of sleep, almost 8 hours, but in the day.  You did note lots of little awakenings, but overall.......that's a lot of sleep.

 

Are you able to work with someone locally on the trauma responses that come up?

 

I would vote for decreasing your medication, but not right now.  It's been about 3 weeks on the same dose and so you could go another 1-3 weeks before the next taper.  I mean that's what I might do, if it were me.

I think you've had some improvements over all.  And I know it's still far from great, but you seem to be coping okay too.

 

I mean I feel awful that you are stuck in trauma and low feelings some days.  Some of that may even improve with just time too.

Neuroemotions  are really common WD symptoms.  And although, no doubt you've had depression or low feelings before, and have had trauma as well, the neuroemotions make them even more supersized, if that makes sense.  Just saying that, as it does get better.  And sorry if I asked before, about if you had a therapist or someone to work with......... but sometimes finding a good ear, a counselor, or friend to listen and comfort, can work wonders too.  Some will go on, and later do specific trauma therapy too.  Others find ways to deal, or self help, and acknowledgement, etc.

 

So.....don't let the tapering fears overcome you.  Maybe you'll want to taper every 6 weeks, instead of 4.  There's no huge pressure to go quickly here malu.  You could even just HOLD now, for a few months, if you'd like........while working on just basics, sleep cycles, good nutrition, continued outside time, pick up some pleasant daytime distractions/hobbies/creative outlets, etc.  And just be for now.  Hoping that some of your "depression" is just of the seasonal variety too.  As you move out from trauma, timewise......that can help somewhat too.  It sounds like you are in a safe and beautiful environment for healing.  And that's good too, malu.  Work on that sense of safety now........be it some internal work, or with a therapist.  Allow yourself to relax.  Sometimes even just learning more meditative practices can and does help, mindfulness-staying in each moment, letting the emotions just flow in and out, and grabbing hold of the easier ones, any little joy or beauty.  Non-drug techniques to cope is a good place to start to explore.  Look at the indexed list in the first post and see what might appeal to you, now.

 

Okay, thanks for the updates.  And notes.

Best, L, p, h, and G,

Hello.
 

"Are you able to work with someone locally on the trauma responses that come up?"
 

I started seeing a therapist, but I don't feel understood. She doesn't seem to get the extent of the trauma and not being able to function that I'm into right now, how my health physically and mentally is very compromised. The first days I had sessions with her there were times I couldn't even hold a conversation properly because of the akathisia. Now I can talk better (not so much I think, because I can't think straight all the time and the symptons, the trauma, the anxiety, the inner restlessness are present and makes it difficult) but I feel she doesn't get it, I was thinking of saying that to her. But I also can go to another person, I don't know.
 

"I would vote for decreasing your medication, but not right now.  It's been about 3 weeks on the same dose and so you could go another 1-3 weeks before the next taper.  I mean that's what I might do, if it were me.

I think you've had some improvements over all.  And I know it's still far from great, but you seem to be coping okay too."
 

Yeah, I even thought of increasing it too, I'll keep this dose for now.
 

"Neuroemotions  are really common WD symptoms.  And although, no doubt you've had depression or low feelings before, and have had trauma as well, the neuroemotions make them even more supersized, if that makes sense.  Just saying that, as it does get better." 
 

Yes, today I got anger and stress, and it "kindled" my nervous system a bit... Horrible. Also the desperation and stress.
 

And sorry if I asked before, about if you had a therapist or someone to work with......... but sometimes finding a good ear, a counselor, or friend to listen and comfort, can work wonders too.  Some will go on, and later do specific trauma therapy too.  Others find ways to deal, or self help, and acknowledgement, etc."

Yes, I want help. The one I went to is Jungian, I don't know to what extent it deals with trauma.

 

"So.....don't let the tapering fears overcome you.  Maybe you'll want to taper every 6 weeks, instead of 4.  There's no huge pressure to go quickly here malu.  You could even just HOLD now, for a few months, if you'd like........while working on just basics, sleep cycles, good nutrition, continued outside time, pick up some pleasant daytime distractions/hobbies/creative outlets, etc.  And just be for now."
 

In the moment I even have difficulty to do "distractions/hobbies/creative outlets", it's still difficult to relax and watch a movie, for example.
 

"It sounds like you are in a safe and beautiful environment for healing."
 

Not so much, because I live with people that are bad for me, but I feel that being stuck in this body feeling trauma physically, the desperation, the fragile nerves, being stuck in bad mental and physical health makes it difficult to enjoy any good enviroment.
 

"And that's good too, malu.  Work on that sense of safety now........be it some internal work, or with a therapist.  Allow yourself to relax.  Sometimes even just learning more meditative practices can and does help, mindfulness-staying in each moment, letting the emotions just flow in and out, and grabbing hold of the easier ones, any little joy or beauty.  Non-drug techniques to cope is a good place to start to explore.  Look at the indexed list in the first post and see what might appeal to you, now."
 

All I want is to be able to relax and have mental and physical health. I feel my body and nerves are very fragile like it never were... I'm trying to let go of the past, the trauma brings it back, I have intrusive thoughts of going back and change what happened (it's impossible) and it's being hard to accept the present and the mistakes that destroyed my health.

Thanks for the comment.

The trauma response persists. The akathisia and inner restlessness got better since when I started the med, but I still have little hope, I'm not functional, I'm in trauma all the time. Side effects of Mirtazapine were the cognitive impairment, the increased joint rigidity, and I think something with the nerves (the trauma response has to do with the fragile nerves), because even when I was having the huge akathisia, the times when I had "truce" moments were more normal than now. I feel horrible all the time.
