Been in bed for the last 11 days. It all got to be so much that I have not been able to function. I've called out of work each day, but my Dr. is working on the paperwork to protect my job and so I can receive Short Term Disability pay. By not fuctioning I truly mean it. Brushed my teeth before going to my appointment...first time since 5/4. Embarassingly I just couldn't get the strength up to shower. The thought of doing anything is just too much. This did not come on all at once on 5/5, it has been coming for quite a while, I have just reached the bottom. Haven't been able to clean my room in over a month so it really does look like my closet threw up. I am embarrased and ashamed of all this. My Soul is tired and I just don't have the strength to do anything. I was not ina very good mental-emotional state at my appointment so I couldnot think of the questions I should have asked. She said something about a Psychiatrist and different meds. I am already on many meds, some for pain from an accident years ago, some blood pressure, cholesterol meds, water pill etc... but also Veneflaxine 300 mg a day and Xanax .5 mg 4 times a day. I will call my Dr. tomorrow to find out what the plan is for setting up with Psych and about what NEW meds. But, I am suffering major anxiety and panic right now since I don't know what comes next. I'm hoping someone out there can maybe give me some sort of idea of what is next for me so maybe I can try to get some rest.
