Glad you had what sounds to be a decent day. Mine was not so much but, I have to admit that you put a smile on my face and actually made me laugh out loud! Your missing S comment, I had to read 3 times but when I figured it out, I literally laughed out loud and so needed that today so... I wanted to say THANK YOU!!! View Thread
I am not a Dr by any means, and we all hope our Dr's know what they are doing but... I would think that is a lot to be on at once. I myself, the seroquel did not help and I had bad reactions to the cymbalta. I am not familiar with citalopram at all...
I would just think your best bet is to keep track of what you take and keep a journal. If you are concerned, as it sounds like you are... There is nothing wrong with a second opinion.
I do not see anything you said before as a rant at all. Sometimes I feel as if I rant but, with me, well, it is the only way I can get my words out. I am not good with words and sometimes have to read things multiple times before I understand what I am reading. I find your posts very easy to read to be honest .... (See there... I smiled...)
Fortunately, when my husband came home I told him what all the therapist had said and he said "NO MORE". He refuses to send me back there again! He assured me he has no intentions of leaving me and has already told me twice how much he loves me and hugged me each time.
We tried after the first visit to give her the benefit of the doubt but he said this is flat out unacceptable. I hope when I go to the psychiatrist Friday, maybe he can give me some ideas. I am going to have my husband print a list of therapists our insurance will cover and take suggestions from him.
I have finally stopped crying, but putting on a smile any time this evening is probably out of the question.
Thank you Chez1 and Alaska_Mommy... You both have both been so welcoming and I so much appreciate it.View Thread
I have done nothing but cry since I have been home... My sons are 25, 22, & 20. I wrote about them in my bio... Basically boils down to my oldest son is always too busy, we cannot trust my iddle son, and my youngest lives across the country... My oldest son just gave us our first grandchild, and well... Before she gave birth, I had bought the baby some clothes and toys and I was told to keep them here that they did not need them. We were told we would get to spend time with the baby but they have only visited a couple times and only invited us over once. Twice something has come up and they needed help with the baby and although we offered, we were denied. Right now it is all about his wife and her family...
Per my therapist, my oldest son has found a better family with her family so he wants to be with them instead of us.
She thinks I am on too many medications, says I should not be on risperidone, says I should be on hormones, thinks it is too late to try and get a relationship with my children without confrontation, says my husband is going to leave me if I do not change, says I need to make friends, and that I need to get a job as I have too much time on my hands and that because of that I am sitting around feeling depressed.
Oh so much to swallow, and it just seems like this huge mountain to climb and trying to do this while not depending on my husband? I mean, I know I cannot be helped unless I help myself, but... My husband is all I have! Now the thought of him leaving me just worsens every thought in my head right now! Am I supposed to fake enjoying sex when I have no desire anymore? Ugh! I just want to scream so bad!
I just feel so overwhelmed right now and I do not know where to begin or even how to begin...View Thread
I am getting ready to leave and a big part of me does not want to go. I fear she will remind me of the bad mother that I was to my kids growing up. I mean, I brought it up at our first appointment but when she said it back to me, it hurt like mad! She is a very "to the point" type of therapist which I have never had one like that before. All in all my husband & I think that may be a good thing... I guess we shall see...
AAAAWWWWEEEE!!!! Aint they C-U-T-E!!! We have 2 dogs... A Lab-Pointer mix and a Pom-Chi (We think) mix... Both rescued from the humane society and we call them both our therapy dogs. The lab mix, she snuggles with us at night and my little Pom mix... Well... He knows when I am crying... He jumps up in my recliner and starts licking my tears... They are truely, our best friends Thank you so much for posting the puppies View Thread
