I have been on Jolessa for almost a month now and my fiance told me that he noticed i am crankier than normal and i snap at him more often. And i actually have had a different look on things lately i.e. i cant stand looking at myself, i feel horrible about being in my own skin, nothing makes me happy except for my children. anyone else feel this way and should i tell my doctor about it?
