... I have had lack of motivation for some months to tend to basics like washing and eating/food shopping etc, my father died last week, i am in the grieving process, will this increased dose interfere with grieving as i dont want to bottle it all up, as have done with other emotional episodes in the past (which i had counselling for to let the emotion out), i already feel as though i have started to bottle up a bit as my mother and sister are on holiday until thursday and not being around them its harder
No medication, including Venlafaxine will stop the natural grieving process. The only thing that stops that process is time. I lost my dad a couple of years ago, and it is just now starting to get easier (he and I were extremely close). Talking with other people is essential, and yes, I know it's easier to bottle it all up (I've been there too!) The best thing that you can do is find someone you can talk about the good times and memories (both good and bad) that you have of your dad, and little by little, day by day, it gets easier over time.
I am sorry for the loss of your dad. It's only been a week, and it will take a lot of time for those feelings to pass.
