Morning Titania. Do you want to talk?

misdee Fri 04-Feb-05 10:38:36

Titania Fri 04-Feb-05 10:43:05

yes. when i told her she went hysterical......

misdee Fri 04-Feb-05 10:55:26

will you replace rocky at all?

poor dd and poor you.

Titania Fri 04-Feb-05 10:56:17

no i dont think we will.

I just want to feel normal and 'alive' again......

misdee Fri 04-Feb-05 10:57:09

are you on ad's?

Titania Fri 04-Feb-05 10:58:48


misdee Fri 04-Feb-05 11:00:56

are they helping? and how is things with dh (found it hard to keep up lately) is he suporting you and coming to terms that you being down isnt his fault etc?

Titania Fri 04-Feb-05 12:02:10

I don't know if they are helping. I don't feel that much better on them. Been on them about a month now. Things with DH are getting there. He has accepted that I am ill, but finds it hard to accept me going for any counselling and talking to somone else. He has been a lot better. We are talking more and things are improving. I still run myself into the ground everyday trying to get everything done, but only so we can spend some time together at night without having to do something else. I feel constantly tired and sick

Titania Fri 04-Feb-05 12:08:55

dds just come home asking where rocky is........

Chandra Fri 04-Feb-05 12:17:22

Titania...many hugs. I don't know if this would help, it has helped me a lot. When I feel low and wonder if this depresion is ever going to go, I just wait until the bad moment pass, and normally it does. Accepting that there are certain moments, days or even weeks that are going to be difficult no matter how much I try to find the reason, has helped me to be "nicer" to myself. Hope that helps, hugs to your DD, if she is still very sad when she returns from school, offer her to write a letter to Rocky and send it up with a ballon.

Titania Fri 04-Feb-05 12:18:29

oh chandra thats a lovely idea....i might just do that......

Chandra Fri 04-Feb-05 12:18:51

...sorry, DDs.

Titania Fri 04-Feb-05 12:20:45

surely the nausea should have worn off by now? I've been on the ADs 4 weeks now.... I feel constantly sick.

Chandra Fri 04-Feb-05 12:35:56

What are you taking?

Titania Fri 04-Feb-05 12:38:06

20mg cipralex

Chandra Fri 04-Feb-05 14:47:55

Sorry Titania, left for a moment and the moment became several hours... Could you tell your GP about the nauseas? he may suggest something different or at least reasure you everything is OK

Titania Fri 04-Feb-05 15:39:52

I have told the GP but she said that its too early for any side effects to be wearing off and to give it another month.

Titania Fri 04-Feb-05 16:03:26

oh i am so so tired.....but still got so much to do.

I feel like I am standing here looking at myself and seeing someone else....if that makes sense at all.

My head and my heart feel so heavy. I don't know what to do for the best. I want to feel better. I should be feeling at least a little bit better now shouldn't I??

Been having more panic attacks than ever before, and they are scaring DH as he's not seen me have one before. DH said I actually passed out the other night and landed on poor ds2 (who is totally fine btw) I don't want to be taking diazepam all the time. They don't make a difference anyway.

I can't remember anything....even what day it is, or what I had for tea last night. I want to just go and do something but it feels like I've got lead in my feet weighing me down.

And once again DH is working all weekend.......

Chandra Fri 04-Feb-05 16:27:15

When I started I was feeling far worse during the first month, what the GP told me was that before I din't care about things but with the AD I was starting to care therefore feeling more anxious. Then, after a few months, I didn't care anymore but I was feeling happy So there's hope!

Titania Mon 07-Feb-05 08:50:01

feeling totally lousy today. Got a kidney infection now and I can barely walk. Still full of this dratted cold as well. There is so much I want to do but I physically can't and it's driving me mad. FIL took ds1 to school for me. dd is at home with me today. Am supposed to be going to parents evening for ds1 this evening. Might ring and see if I can make it tomorrow instead. (they do it over 2 days) Really not up to doing anything today.

It looks really empty where the birds once were. 3 birds gone in a week

Titania Mon 07-Feb-05 14:30:48

Have had to ring the school and tell them I can't go to the parents evening. I just feel so rotten. They are going to try and fit me in tomorrow. FIL is fetching ds1 from school for me thank goodness. Have hardly done anything today. Even the bleach has stayed put in the cupboard.
