For the past three years I've been living with liver disease and chronic cirrhosis. After a tough time in hospital where I nearly lost my life my doctor prescribed me 40mg citalopram and 80mg propanal. Since hospital I have totally turned my life around by getting a promotion at work. Clearing my debts and facing my demons head on. I'm a positive happy person and well liked and respected. Every now and again due to medication and the sate of my health I suffer from sleepless nights, rare feelings of impending doom, intense emotions, positive and negative. I've been a great colleague at work and I'm proud of all I've achieved which has kept me focused and on the right path. However on Saturday after a long 9hr shift with no breaks or food I had an opportunity to steal and in an out of character moment my morals slipped and I wrongly took advantage of the situation. My work history is clean of stealing or gross misconduct and I have never been in trouble with the police. I have felt nothing but utter Discust at my actions and guilt. It just isn't the type of thing I'd do. I took around £15 worth of groceries. Random products which I could pay for. I didn't hide what I was doing and it's almost like my mind wasn't functioning right. I have access to thousands of pounds on a daily basis yet took much less. Theft Is theft I I know it was wrong. I am putting this on here for advice as it frightened me and I'm seeing my doctor today to check on mental state and and that my dosage is right. I've been on the same amount for 3 years daily.
Could not eating and lack of sleep and taking my meds late in the day on an empty stomach cause me to act immorally? Has anyone on here acted out of character with liver disease or taking these medications? Any advice is much appreciated as I don't want to ever behave like this again. Thanks
