Currently I have a huge amount of conflict with my husband. It's driving me crazy. I feel really upset most of the time. My emotions range from extreme sadness, to lethargy, to rage. Sometimes I feel like I'm going to lose it. I am usually such a laid back person but at times I get so angry at my husband I want to hit him or ruin one of his personal possessions. I just feel so out of control most of the time.
Even though I feel out of control, I'm not acting out on my rage impulses. I don't think I'll really hit him. It's just when we argue I get so frustrated and I don't know what to do. I feel so sad and frustrated most of the time. We are seeking both couples counseling and individual counseling for both of us. We just started going and it feels like things between us are getting worse because it's forcing us to really acknowledge challenging issues.
I'm just having such a hard time and I'm wondering if I should consider going on medication while were figuring things out. I've been stress eating a lot and I hate that. I think that medication may help me to be not as sad or angry and I won't stress eat as much.
I'm not crazy about the idea of taking something. I've been on Zoloft before and it made me feel spacey. It also made it difficult for me to sleep, upset my digestive system and made it more difficult to orgasm. It did help with the pain though. That is why I'm considering it now.
Any thoughts or advice?
