I am completely at a loss, I don't know what to do.

Posted , 6 users are following.

I just feel I need to talk or I'll go crazy. I have severe depression and severe anxiety. I recently took an large overdose of venlafaxine, which obviously didn't work. I was admitted to a crisis house for 2 weeks and I see the crisis team every day. I am due to go home tomorrow and I can't cope. I take 4mg lorazepam, 50mg quetiapine and 300mg venlafaxine, but nothing seems to be helping. I am in bed right now frozen, I can't go downstairs or call someone. All I can think of is that when I get home I'll try to end my life. I have told people this but I'm still going home tomorrow and I'm terrified of myself. I'm so low and tired but so dizzy from anxiety, I'm panicked. I don't feel like I'm in the world at all, I'm at the end of my breaking point again. I can't even cry.

    Hang in there please. Make a list of things that makes you happy so you can do it when you get home, that way you'll have something to look forward too.

    Its hard when you feel so frozen and no one seems to hear what you say. That feeling of panic is over whelming. Try to find different ways to get through each day and evenally you will find somethng that works for you and that you are comfortable with. Be kind to yourself as you are as important as anyone else. Its not easy but stay strong. You really do need to speak to someone there this evening and tell them how you are feelling even if you have told them before. Take care xx

    Hang in there. I know it's easier said than done, and I've been in that position, but try and remember that these bad feelings and anxiety and panic are the illness and perhaps side effects from your medication. It is not forever. Do you not have a friend or close relative who could spend time with you at home? You do need to speak to a professional right now about your issues and fears and suicidal thoughts. If you feel frozen from anxiety to talk to someone, try writing it down and giving it to someone. Take care x

    You need to stay where you are, not being sent home. I feel so sorry things are not good for you.
