I can understand where you are coming from because I am in the middle of a severe depression as well. I also had medications changed, but it is helping. Nothing was working before so I am starting to feel better. Hopefully your medication change will have a positive effect on you.
I know what it feels like not to have the strength or energy to do anything because I go through the same thing. I just hope you can find some strength when you look at your son. Try to find some positive things to do to keep your self busy. The busier you are, the faster your day will go. Hopfully your whole day will not be a washout with rain.View Thread
I did something good for myself by going into the hospital for a while. I did not realize how badly I needed that. Now I am feeling somewhat better and I hope the feeling continues to get better.View Thread
I am glad to hear the tired feeling went away. I am hoping that happens for me as well.
I am on 40mg of citalopram, 5mg of Abilify, and 1.5mg of Risperidol. I know the last two are relatively low doeses, but I hope that is all I will need. I just feel so tired and I can't wait for this feeling to go away. I have been taking these meds for almost two weeks so hopefully it is very soon.View Thread
I was put on Resperidol, Citalopram, and Abilify. I also take xanax for anxiety. I hope this combination of medications works out well for me. I am tired of feeling like this. Although I am starting to feel better than I did when I first went into the hospital.View Thread
I recently spent a good amount of time in the hospital and I got a different diagnosis than what I was expecting. I was diagnosed with bipolar I and Borderline Personality Disorder. I am feelig like I was kicked in the stomach or something because I was not expecting that. I feel a little confused about the diagnosis and I am not sure what to think or where to go from here. This makes me feel a little lost. It also makes me feel a little crazy.View Thread
My therapist wants me to go into the hospital which scare me a little. I feel anxious about it. I know I need to go because I can no longer keep myself safe. Hopfully I can get the proper help there.View Thread
I went to see a different psychiatrist who I thought might be able to help me only to be told that he can't. My problems are outside of his expertise and that sounds really stupid to me. It makes me angry. I feel like no one can help me because if a doctor can't, then what do I do. I keep taking my meds and go to my therapy appoints which is what I will be doing tomorrow, but what's the point?View Thread
Anxiety can do that to you. The best thing to do is to lay down and try your best to relax. The more you fight it the worse it can be. Focus on you breathing and breathe slowly. If you have antianxiety medication, have you taken any today? If not try taking the recommended amount.
Another option is to call your doctor so you can talk to him or her for a while to try and calm down.View Thread
I believe part of letting go is allowing yourself to feel the emotions and not trying to push them away. As hard as that may sound, you have to let yourself grieve and feeling the emotions is part of that. It may feel like your depression is getting worse, but that may be part of the process. Don't get discouraged.
Letting go doesn't mean you have to forget how good she was to you. It's the same with saying goodbye to her. You will always have those good memories to hold on to.View Thread
