hi, i have been on many meds over 14 years on and off and am now weaning off cit and taking diazapam for now until i start my new mirtazapne 15mg. what is it really like? feel lonely and no one understands all you get is pull yourself together! i feel like i would love to be sectioned just to get away from everyone and make myself better as i hate my family seeing me like this especially kids. Y ou feel like you try to put on a fake you for them and this makes it twice as hard and its not me i am dying inside anyone else feel like this?

    Hi There,

    Theres a saying that goes \"THOSE WHO REALLY LOVE YOU SEE THE REAL PAIN IN YOUR EYES, THE REST JUST SEE A FAKE SMILE\".

    i ASKED TO BE ADMITTED A FEW WEEKS BACK, AND WAS TOLD IT WAS UNESSARY, THEY WILL ONLY SECTION YOU IF THEY THINK YOUR GOING TO HURT YOURSELF OR SOMEONE ELSE.

    i AM NOT ON MIRT NOW ,BUT HAVE BEEN IN THE PAST, MY FEELINGS ARE LIKE YOURS, I JUST WANTED TO GO TO BED AND SEE NO-ONE, SLEEP WITH THE HOPE THAT WHEN I WOKE ALL THE BAD FEELINGS WOULD BE GONE.

    I FEEL FOR YOU IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN TO COPE WITH, MINE ARE ALL GROWN UP AND LEFT HOME. BUT SOMETIME THERE VISITS TAKE MY MIND OFF ME AND I DONT FEEL SO BAD WHEN THEY ARE HERE, SO I CANNOT WIN.

    Hi thanks for your input, have you or anyone been referred to mental health as that is the next step and not sure what to make of it? Does it go on your records? Been given diazepam as a stop gap until I take mirt only taken seven tablets but they are doing nothing . Just feel like taking mirt straight away without weaning of of the cit. You tried to be sectioned but they refused how did that make you feel? I feel and think about doing things to myself but not to end it but more for attention to get help as I could not put my family through anything like that as my son and husband have very severe health problems thanks for reading and replying to anyone take care out there everyone x
