Just moved to a new state, lots of stress going on, and I can't get off the couch! I feel paralyzed! I have no motivation to unpack the boxes, or set up the house for my family. We have been here 3 months already. New docs are the hardest part. Need a psychologist and psychiatrist for my meds. I can't even bring myself to make a phone call to start the process. I don't even leave the house day after day. I'm already on so many meds for the depression, ADD, and mood, I can't imagine changing so I rationalize that there is nothing a doc can do. I do know better, but in this state? I'm sure you all can understand this. I wish someone could just give me a good doc you know? Can't talk to my husband and no friends, so feel very lonely and isolated.View Thread
Wow Helpmeplz, amazing the similarities to our stories huh? And the friend thing? Sooo true. I think that's why I have never had too many friends and never really any close ones. I seem to always come up with a reason not to go and do because I can't seem to get myself out there. I think in some ways I don't want to get better because it's comfortable and so familiar to be sitting at home alone. I sound so crazy don't I? Maybe the best advice for both of us is to get our meds tweaked. Maybe that will break the cycle. My daughter asked me why I play solitaire all day, isn't it boring? I said my brain just gets on a loop and I can't stop. I think that about sums it up!!View Thread
Thanks so much lexismom! Just having someone "get it" means alot. Reading back my post just now is making me cry. I can't beleive that's me. I sure sound screwed up when put to paper! I try to pass myself off as normal but seeing it written down is, WOW. That's good advice to make small goals. I know this in my head, Ive been here so many times. I guess I need to just keep plugging. I also have a 16 year old son that is an addict and the move has been a nightmare. Trying to make new friends I thought would be the best thing for him, but turns out, how do we trust him or these "new friends" when we don't even know who they are. At least before, we knew who the dealers were. So it's a combat zone around her to top it off. Oh, and he's failing sophmore year a second time. Definately contributing to my mood. So getting him squared away of course has come first. Mom is always last on the list right? I just want to crawl under the covers and never come out.View Thread
