Back at home - again!!

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi all

I am back home on pass for a bit longer this time.

Week went ok, as you know I was getting very fed up and more miserable but a new nurse started on Tuesday and her and me seemed to hit it off. She ended up being  my nurse over a couple of days and between us well more of her prompting as I just wanted out. She calmed me down and we came up with a constructive plan to put to the Dr on Thursday meeting. Which she seemed happy with for me to come home on Thursday and return next Wednesday, again with the option of retuning if I needed to. also my GP & CPN have been informed I am home too. Hoping to arrange a home visit from my CPN also. 

I even was looking forward to coming home, instead of that awful dread, so just maybe I am beginning tio turn that corner or the 45mg of mirt are kicking in or a bit of both.

Plus I have got to make a rescue box for the times that I am in a panic or suicidal to go to. I have started to plan things to place in this box.

Thank you all again for keeping me going it is much appreciated especially as you are all going through your own stressful, painful journies.

i hope all of you that are going through the awful process of coming off this drug are having a better time.

    Tina, bless your heart I am so happy for you. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, and then you put one foot in front of the other. The Bible states that God will not put more on you than you can handle, with His help. It is to draw you closer to Him. I am sure that you, just like me, would rather not have this in our lives. Any positive thing that I hear from you, no matter how large or small, makes me smile. Although I don't know you, I do know suffering. Godspeed to you! David
