so fed up

Posted , 8 users are following.

After A few good days thinking I was on the road 2 some kind of normality yesterday and today have been horrendous, feeling sick, dizzy and a pounding headache, no sleep at all last night, only 2 weeks into new meds, so hopefully things will sort them selves out soon, I just feel so so sad, I dont know how much more I can take.

    So sorry to hear you're feeling so rough. Have you been back to see your gp as you've only recently started on your meds? Also, today maybe 1 bad day followed by a good day as you say you've been back to some kind of normality. It's so hard, I know, but recovery tends to be a bit of a roller coaster I'm afraid rather than just up and up. If you are really feeling that you can't take any more then you must call your gp and express how you're feeling, call the out if hours service if your gp has shut. I hope you have a better day tomorrow, one day at a time, I promise you will get there, take care xx

    Hi Lesley, recovery isn't a smooth ride I'm afraid but having good days is a good sign.

    The curve is down first then you bottom out with good days and bad days then the curve goes up and the curve smooths out.

    Hi, I’m sorry to hear about you’ve had a rough time. I’ve been on my meds for just over month. May I suggest something that I’ve found helpful and uplifting? My laptop desktop is a rotation of motivational, inspirational and heart warming quotes. It sounds silly, I know, but I think they’ve really helped. My favourite is “life isn’t about getting through the storm; it’s about learning to dance in the rain”. I really hope that everything works out.

    I have learned to let go and let God. God will heal you in his time. Just except the anxiety and change the way you think. Its a habit . You have to change the habit. It takes time and there are setbacks but you can do it. I suffered severely, lost weight, tried medicine and felt out of control and a prisioner of my own thoughts. But now I don't question my anxiety levels all day and don't think about how I feel. I replace it with positive thinking, prayer, faith and stay busy. Good luck .
