Can't work it out

Posted , 6 users are following.

Woke up feeling really depressed. I've been feeling good for a while with the help of medication. I can't work out what's changed all of a sudden.

I've now turn my phone off so no one can phone me and I feel anxious about going to work today.

Need help before I fall to deep.

I'm scared I'm not going to recover this time.

    Hey sandy

    Hey how you doing today, I don't think anything has changed, i think sometimes we get an idea maybe a small blip like you start to think these tablets are working this is great then your mind starts to worry about the effect of them maybe something like how long will this good feeling last though

    Before you know it your mind is running a thousand miles an hour with questions typically I think people woth these conditions have very fast minds it answers it's own questions but asks to many to quick to answer each one something like a quick fire round in a game show before you know it your thinking six seven thoughts at a time so fast each thought has a solution that throws up three most questions each answer you give

    Now you head is racing what started as as a simple wow this feeling is good has grown into a huge worry you can't find the answers for because it's all going to fast bang your worrying panicking you become anxious all over again

    Your mind wins another round ya see this is how I think it works we can't help the feeling of wow this is really working it's very much Bach handed though because again your mind asks/even agrees then asks yes it is but for how long?why is it working?will they keep me on theses? What will happen if they change the tablets? What will I do? Then etc you see what I'm saying it may not be about the meds you thought about it could be anything the point is you had a thought maybe about a person or a job you had to do something simple before you knew it your mind went off the chart asking questions that you know the answers to but picking out stuff on a spending convoyor belt before you know it your swamped we have to learn how to shape that belt down I think

    Hope your ok mike

    Sandy how long have you been on your meds?.

    Blips do happen quite a lot. I've had a few they usually last about 5 days or a week. Don't worry too much it will pass. Mine last less now I've been on meds for 18minths and slowly reducing, so I get more blips but don't last as long.

    maybe your body has become accustumed to the dose and you need to either raise it or try another.
