Hello all, I apologise for the grim thread however I am struggling to cope. It has been three weeks since I came off finasteride and I have been constantly thinking about ending it all which is very out of character with the person I was before this. There is a bridge in the city where I live that I have often been thinking about jumping off and googling awful things.
I am so disappointed in myself for not researching more thoroughly the negatives before taking this ludicrous drug and the fact that I didn’t actually have the level of hairloss which necessitated this course of action makes things even worse.
My family are living in hell at the moment with the way I am acting, my sister was in floods of tears this morning however I felt nothing emotionally and just offered a pitiful hug to try make her feel better. My family are having to force me out of bed each morning and no doubt I will lose my job soon as I have no motivation to do anything.
The only thing I can be bothered to do is surf the forum which I seem to be addicted to over the last 10 days since I realised my condition. I appreciate this isn’t healthy however I can’t feel anything else. My diet is going downhill and I’m only exercising begrudgingly. I appreciate these things need to change but I’m not in the mindset to change them.
Do I just need to ride out the storm and hope things get better? I currently have no hope of improvement.
