Whats happened?

LucyJones Fri 22-Jun-07 21:47:29

do you have family or friends nearby that could come over?
Is anyone with you? Do you want to talk about what the mattter is?

cantdothisanymore Fri 22-Jun-07 21:48:24

Yes, am on meds, seeing psych, therapist etc

Could call Dr or counsellor but they'll hospitalise me.

Don't want to go to A&E.

Just had enough of feeling like this. My 'wise mind' knows I shouldn't do anything but the rest of me wants to. I HATE this. I don't understand why it won't go away.

I think it is a very good idea to call them.
Do you feel up to talking about things a bit here?

Do you feel like something terrible is going to happen, but you don't know what, or when?

cantdothisanymore Fri 22-Jun-07 21:49:45

No, have pushed all my friends away. No family. I don't want company. I just want this to all go away. If the meds & counselling hasn't helped then what else is there? I've tried everything.

madmarchhare Fri 22-Jun-07 21:49:46

sorry, x post

cantdothisanymore Fri 22-Jun-07 21:50:48

Nothing is the matter - I just have had these feelings for six months and they're overwhelming me again. I just want them to go away and I don't know how to make that happen.

LucyJones Fri 22-Jun-07 21:51:05

are you on your own in the house?

SSSandy2 Fri 22-Jun-07 21:51:30

Did something happen 6 months ago to spark these feelings off?

madmarchhare Fri 22-Jun-07 21:51:33

Sometimes meds and councelling can make you feel worse before you feel better

I s there one this that has spesifically made you feel like this just now?

cantdothisanymore Fri 22-Jun-07 21:53:08

Am on my own atm.

Nothing happened 6 months ago except depression setting in. These meds were helping - I'm on my 3rd lot of ADs and I thought they were making things better. So why has this suddenly come back so strongly?

cantdothisanymore Fri 22-Jun-07 21:54:43

MMH, my first ADs did make me worse and I was hospitalised 3 months ago. Have had 2 med changes since and they were helping. I know that the feelings usually subside but they've been really strong for 3 days now and I'm scared they'll get worse and will make me do something. I don't want to have to do that.

LucyJones Fri 22-Jun-07 21:55:47

is someone coming later? is your dh/dp out atm?

cantdothisanymore Fri 22-Jun-07 21:57:48

No. Noone is coming later. No DP. Just me.

madmarchhare Fri 22-Jun-07 21:58:13

Has therapy been useful to you?

Can you call out of hours for a chat?

madmarchhare Fri 22-Jun-07 21:59:33

Do you have kids around? Are they in bed?

cantdothisanymore Fri 22-Jun-07 21:59:51

Can't call anyone. They'll call the hospital. I don't want to go there again. It won't help. It'll make things worse. I just need to ride this out. But I'm scared.

I'm sorry for rambling, I just feel like I need to be busy and doing something - typing sort of helps me feel in control of something.

cantdothisanymore Fri 22-Jun-07 22:00:37

No, no kids. DS's Dad took him away when I was in hospital last time

I really don't know how to help or what to say. Surely there is someone you can ring?
