I'm going to find this difficult to type, is there something seriously wrong with me, been on 30mg mirt for two days upped from 15 it does knock me out sleep is still disturbed been having weird dreams that go on for ages (seemto), now I have no motivation but my mind is going off at a tangent. I am still having suicidal thoughts but no enerygy to action them. Then my mind goes in overdrive having some really morbid sick thoughts to the point i am looking up really sick things on the internet, Should I talk to someone about this as it is beginning to scare me. I've stayed in bed so far again today as I like to think I'd be safe there.

    Tina, you need to talk to someone

    Have you a close friend or relative you can talk to today? Try and getting out of bed. It does us no good to isolate. Make an appointment with your GP or CPN tomorrow

      I can't talk to my son about this it would totally freak him out, the friend I would talk to is away on holiday. I do have a number to ring to speak to mental health team at the main hospital I am debating ringing them but I feel so stupid I will get up and go out somewhere for some fresh air, I just feel all over the place but relaxed if that makes some sense cos it doesn't to me. Thanks fro replying. Maybe I shouldn't of started this drug route I'm finding it o hard to deal with the way it is making me act,

      I've seen my psychiatrist twice now he seems a very nice guy the first time I saw him lasted about 2 hours for an assessment, I got fast pathed through due to a suicide attempt not the right way to get seen I suppose not that I'd even considered that I'd be seeing a psychiatrist.

      I hope you get on well I went with an open mind as I didn't really know what to expect. 

      I will speak to someone soon, I've got to ring my mother first which is very difficult as she is deaf and refuses to wear her hearing aid oh what fun. 

      I just think when things are said out loud they sound so stupid but I suppose they have heard a lot of things.

      Hey Tina, I have been on Mirt for a long time and as I am currently trying to withdraw from them, i have researched the drug until my eyes sting. During all the reading it does state that some people who take Mirt can have thoughts of suicide or harming themselves. If you are having these type of thoughts then its important to seek the help of a professional as soon as possible. I would make an appointment tomorrow first thing and go along and tell them..Most people make a complete recovery from this awful illness, which is normally aided by them getting on the right medication...Mirtazapine may not be the right one for you. I used Citalopram the first time and made a complete recovery, unfortunately i stayed on it for years and when i fell over a second time it stopped working, this caused the switch to Mirt.I have a supportive family who help but don't fully understand the anguish I have to go through.I at first kept my depression to myself but becuase I know life is great when im well, i shout to the rooftops when i'm not. Don't suffer in silence, make sure your heard, wishing you well

      Thanks Craig

      I was on citalapram from Sep until I changed over as the powers to be decided it wasn't doing anything. I am just so tired of it all, I have just spoken to a emergency CPN at the hospital I have got to distract myself if I feel suicidal ring NHS24 and possible contact my GP tomorrow. Keep chopping and changing medication doesn't give it time to work, I just wish i'd never started them in the first place.

      I might go and visit my son for a while then go and get a takeaway as I haven't eaten much today either.

      Thanks for listening everyone Tina x

      I sometimes think why didn't I die when my husband did, after all the heartache and stress we went through, all the illnesses and pain then I wouldn't be left alone to carry on. I feel so sad I just wish he was here to give me a big hug and make everything alright.

    Hey Tina, 

    hope you are reading this. 

    Yes I feel the same way. I have quite a few nasty suicidal thoughts and have acted on them, but quit early enough. 

    are your thoughts more of self harm or harming others?

    If you dont have anyone to talk to about your thoughts. why dont you share them here? I mean... that's what we are here for, right? Maybe they arent even as morbid and awful as you think they are. Maybe others have them too. 

    When I feel low I start researching methods. Get very technical. Want to know every little detail. I think that's how I cope and keep myself from really acting on them. 

    I hope my post somehow can help you.

      Hi Mermaid

      What a great nights sleep not I've been waking all weird times all night the last two nights must of been a two off.

      My thoughts were nothing to do with self harm or suicide. I was thinking if I did commit suicide and was successful would they do a post mortem nd it snowballed from there. Then real crime scenes etc.

      When or if I do commit suicide it is by drowning where I live there is plenty of water and secluded beaches plus it doesn't involve anyone else also I don't want my son to find me at home hanging or taken an overdose.

      This is all in my crisis plan that has been written up etc with my cpn.

      It feels weird writing this out as if it is someone else.

      It is comforting in a weird way knowing someone else does think along the same lines and I am not totally insane.

      Tina x
