The best thing to do would be to talk to your therapist about all of this. He or she can help you sort it out so maybe you don't feel like you are losing your mind. It sounds like there are people around you who will be able to let you know if you are losing touch with reality. Just try not to think about it too much, you will only drive yourself crazy.View Thread
I don't think your doctor or your husband would let you stay home with the kids if you weren't ok enough to be around them. You may feel like you are going insame sometimes, but there is a difference between feeling that way and acting on it. Try to take breaks when your husband is home to watch the kids for a while.View Thread
Plans; My daughter is home sick from school again. She has a lot of homework to make up so we are working on that. Will make dinner and have her take a shower. Hopefully she will be in school tomorrow.View Thread
Even if your family doesn't believe anything is wrong, they are not you. They can't tell you whether or not you can see a doctor. Are you still under your parents' insurance? If this is the case, you can still see a doctor without your parents consent.
You know yourself better than anyone else. If you believe something may be wrong, then it's worth checking out. A Doctor is the best person to talk to in order to get diagnosed. Feel free to discuss what is going on with you here. We can give opinions, but remember to see a doctor.View Thread
Plans: Had a pdoc appt. today. He is taking me off the antidepressants so he can put me on something else. I will find out next week what he is going to put me on. He has me stopping them cold turkey so that should be fun. Other than that, nothing else going on.View Thread
Sleep: Good. As usual I am sleeping too much. I only slept til noon today. That's not too bad for me.
Mood: Down, anxious
How do I feel?: (nice idea adding this) I feel tired even though I am getting enough sleep. I know this is part of the depression I am in right now, but when does it end? It is so frustrating.
Plans: My daughter is home sick from school today, so just watching after her and making sure she doesn't get sicker. She was running a fever of 103 yesterday. So lots of rest for her and some ibuprofen.View Thread
Plans: Not much going on today. I have homework to do for school. I also had a therapy appt. today. That went well. I decided to go get subs for dinner so I don't have to cook. My depression right now has me beat. I can't seem to do anything and everything feels too hard. I am just tired of all of it.View Thread
Can you try to do something nice for yourself at home? Maybe taking a nice bath and wrap up in a blanket. Watch some tv maybe. These things would not require any gas or even having to leave the house.
I can understand the irritability part because I get the same way. Then I have to tell myself that what I am getting irritated about is not a big deal. It doesn't always work but at least you are recognizing when this is happening to you. That's a step in the right direction.View Thread
