I feel so so bad tonight. Have never posted on here before, but I am not going to do anything stupid, I just want the desparate feeling to stop

PiperIsTerrysChoclateOrange Tue 10-Feb-15 20:41:53

Are you on any medication.

How about a hot cup of tea and a long bubble bath then a chick flick to watch.

Freeflying Tue 10-Feb-15 20:47:41

Hi piper I am on venlafaxine anti depressants
I can't think or concentrate I've been trying to make myself a tea for 20 minutes I just can't make it happen I am so frustrated and scared sad

PiperIsTerrysChoclateOrange Tue 10-Feb-15 20:48:56

How about just watching a movie with a cold drink.

Freeflying Tue 10-Feb-15 20:55:07

I am starting to panic. Just I will watch a movie I will try

PiperIsTerrysChoclateOrange Tue 10-Feb-15 20:59:30

Pick one that you have seen before or a film that doesn't need a lot of thought.

Freeflying Tue 10-Feb-15 21:10:16

I am too scared now

Freeflying Tue 10-Feb-15 21:25:50

Please can someone help me calm down

Chuffchuff Tue 10-Feb-15 21:31:58

free sorry you're feeling bad. Is anybody with you where you are?

Do you want to talk about how you're feeling or why you might be feeling that way? Or we can just talk about random crap smile

I know it's hard to put into practiced but try to remember that however bad you are feeling, it is just a feeling and nothing more. And no feelings last forever, this will pass, and you will be ok.

My baby daughter is here sleeping. My dp left the flat about an hour ago, we had a fight
I try to remember it will be ok I am just tired now and I don't want to feel like this anymore.

Chuffchuff Tue 10-Feb-15 21:41:39

Not surprised you're tired with a baby! Let alone all the stress of arguments..

Do you have any 'go to' things to help you relax? When I'm feeling a bit freaky I have a few different things I do - listening to my ipod in a comfy chair with my eyes shut, reading a novel I've read before (so I don't have to concentrate too hard!), I also have some relaxation podcasts I downloaded that help.

Do you want to talk about what's happened with your dp? Or not.. Either way is fine, whatever helps...

Chuffchuff Tue 10-Feb-15 21:42:56

How long have you been on your medication btw?

Freeflying Tue 10-Feb-15 21:44:27

I used to self harm which I know isn't what you meant! But this hasn't happened in a long time I haven't cut for a month and a bit now
I am listening to some music I will try to do some food prep for Dd I think, I feel less shaky, I want to stop crying.
He said I was being a dumb bitch and threw a toy and walked out. I feel shaky from the noise but less so now

Do you have someone who you can call to have a chat with? If not do you feel able to talk on here or ring samaritans? I usually find talking to someone helpful, even if they don't have any constructive advise to say back.
I hope you start to feel better soon.thanks

Freeflying Tue 10-Feb-15 21:45:05

I've been on it for about 4 months I was on different ones for a year and a half before

Freeflying Tue 10-Feb-15 21:46:05

I don't really have many friends I can talk to but this is helping

Chuffchuff Tue 10-Feb-15 21:49:36

Well it's really good you've not cut yourself for that long smile

Distraction is always good I think, food prep, listening to music, whatever.

Feeling angry on your behalf for the way your P has behaved.

Freeflying Tue 10-Feb-15 21:51:42

Thank you chuff
I don't know what else to do now

Chuffchuff Tue 10-Feb-15 21:52:41

Sorry xposted. Glad this is helping smile

Do you think your medication is helping you? Do you see your gp regularly for monitoring? Although I have to say, medication or no medication, having a partner who speaks to you like that is going to make anybody feel shit. Trust me, it's not you...

Chuffchuff Tue 10-Feb-15 21:54:05

Do you mean now as in literally now or what to do now about your P?

Freeflying Tue 10-Feb-15 21:55:40

I don't feel like it helps and this medicine is horrible I missed one day and fainted twice but my gp doesn't want to change it. I was make him angry he was at the end of his tether he said. I asked him to take his glass in the kitchen and he said he would do it when he wanted so I told him he was being unfair and now he is angry. I never mean to annoy him but I'm shit at being in a relationship.

Freeflying Tue 10-Feb-15 21:56:22

I meant right now but I am sitting down now

Chuffchuff Tue 10-Feb-15 21:56:54

Btw what you said about not having many friends to talk to - It's really easy to get isolated when you have a baby. Never too late to start building bridges with friendships that have lapsed though!

Do you have family around?

Freeflying Tue 10-Feb-15 22:00:51

I have friends but quite superficial friendships.. I guess more acquaintances than friends. Yes I have my mum and dad close but they are both in ill health and I have four sisters and a brother too

Chuffchuff Tue 10-Feb-15 22:01:02

And seriously, listen to me - it's not your fault he called you a dumb bitch. Nobody has any right to speak to you like that, and definitely not somebody who is supposed to love you.

Re the meds - could you see a different gp at your doctors surgery? Doesnt sound like yours is listening to you.
