Ended up in in ER

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi folks here's a brief story of what's been happening .

I started fluoxetine early February after the dreaded anxiety / depression creeped back

In . I got past the worst of the side effects

And witnessed some gd hours which led

To good days and so on

So just as I was beginning to find my feet

My long term partner of 15yr decides she's

No longer in love and quits

This has left myself devastated and has put me back to square 1

My anxiety is through the roof , my thoughts

Are doing overtime my mind is hell

I plucked up the courage to go see a Dr

And told him my current plight

I was crying as I did this

He gave me buspirone & zopiclone

To try and ease the suffering

Well ..... On fri I took my 1st buspirone

And by the end of fri night I felt amazing

I was on a high , it's as if all my pain worries

Thoughts had gone ..... Until sat

I took another pill this time I felt edgy

Shaky type feeling

I was at my mums house when this was

Happening and I knew a full blown panic

Episode was imminent

My heart was racing , I was confused

I was hot and shaking my heart got faster

And faster then it would try to slow down

Then miss beats then speed up

I honestly thought I was dying I was in such

A state an ambulance was called

I was assured I was not taking a heart attack as a heart tracer was graphed

I honestly thought I was going to die

Was this some some of reaction ?

Was the stress too much and this was

The out come ? Any idea

    Dear daz

    Sorry for what had happened to you. From your post it is clear that you are entering the stage of depression. What you are having now is anxiety attacks. Keep in mind that those medicines are not the solution for easing your problem. It all depends on your mind. If possible, give some details of your relation. Are you going to be separated? Will there be any chance of uniting in future?

    Anyway, take things lightly. What you need now is relaxing. Try to go out and mixed up with your friends. Take deep breathings. Drink plenty of water, endulge yourself in some excercises. Be busy with some activities you like most. Never sleep late. Your body is fine and there will be no health issues. What you are feeling now is due to the anxiety only.  Stop the medication, instead, try to controll your mind. Say STOP to your mind when you start thinking ablut something not good. Your health depends on your mind and the mind can be controlled by you. Good luck

      Hi atom

      Right now my head is all over the place , I've started questioning life

      I'm finding this experience similar to that of a death . It's so intense and constantly

      On my mind . I find myself going through scenarios , conclusions etc

      I'm also getting paranoid for some reason . We have a 3yr old together

      And a house we are still living together as she knows my situation

      Whether this is a gd or bad thing I don't know . It's like reassurance

      Just knowing she's there it can get

      Awkward at times . It's a living hell

      Knowing that she doesn't want me

      And the inevitable will eventually

      Happen . I'm sleeping on the sofa

      And getting very little at that

      This to me is the worst possible ever

      Situation I have ever been in

      Life is so cruel

      Sorry to hear that Keith

      Having been with some one for so long it is so so hard to understand

      When they say it's over

      It all sounds unreal after all you've loved that person and grew into such

      A relationship shared things , lived

      Together , holidays etc and most notably they've been your lover

      Soul mate and best friend

      With each passing day I'm still

      Wondering why and going over and over things time and time again

      You get yourself into such a routine

      And now its all up in the air

      The future just now seems very bleak

      I honestly don't know how to come to terms with this .
