Default Just need some support

I'm feeling really low. After hitting near rock bottom after trying to get off of my meds, my shrink and therapist recommended that I get back on them. For almost two weeks after I got back on them, I started feeling better than I had in a long long time. I was feeling optimistic for once.

It's a week later, and I'm feeling anxious all of the time now. That in turn has made me feel depressed and hopeless again. My shrink is looking to fiddle with my meds to create the right balance, and maybe that will do something, but I'm just so sick of it. I've been on antidepressants and anti-anxiety medication since I was ten years old. It's more than twenty years later, and after a suicide attempt, two hospitalizations, and more med changes than I can count or even remember, it's the same old thing over and over. The doctors always say that *this* time it will work. *This* time things will be better for real. At what point do I just accept that nothing will really work?

I guess I'm not really looking for answers...I just need a little bit of support.

You need some support???



Consider me the bra of the internet. Here to support all of us boobs in our time of need (sorry for the lame attempt at humor). But seriously - if you ever need to talk - you are welcome to email me.

Sorry things aren't working out for you, krminnj. My pdoc and I haven't found the right med cocktail either, and depression is kicking my butt

Thanks so much for the support, guys. I am feeling a little better today, though I have an appointment with my therapist tonight, and I am kind of dreading it.

It's great to be part of a community with such supportive members.

We live in hope that the meds will make our lives worth living again. What's the alternative, die in despair !

Useless Me. I've seen you call yourself that many times, but your "bra of the internet" comment made me smile for the first time today. I bet it had a similar effect on others. That is being useful my friend
