Struggling to cope.

Posted , 6 users are following.

For the past week my anxiety has been sky high.  On tuesday night i took an overdose of 900mg of sertraline.  Since then I have been getting stomach pains, and its making my anxiety extremely bad.  I haven't had more than 3 hours sleep a day all week and I am really struggling to cope with this constant panic.  Always waking up in a panic and trying to get through the day.  It's so hard, and I have no idea what to do.

    You should go to A&E Hun. You need to get your tummy checked after taking that amount of tablets. Just to be on safe side xxxxxxx

      I was taken to hospital on tuesday night after I had done it but I asked to be discharged a couple hours later but they haven't called to say anything is wrong so I'm not sure A&E will do anything xxxxxx

    I really feel for you, our minds are difficult to shut off as I know myself. But with help, advice the correct meds we can battle through and try to come out the other end. Im sorry to hear of your struggles, I completely understand because I've suffered with depression myself, including living with my husband who has a serious mental health condition. Did you go to the hospital when you took this overdose? If so have yu been to you local doctor to explain how you are feeling now? Big it persists I suggest you get it looked at it call 111. How are you feeling mentally at the moment? Have you got support around you? To keep yourself relaxed maybe try some meditation. I do it most nights and it helps me no end with anxiety and stress, including my health issues I'm currently suffering with

    Hi Lauren. i'm so sorry to hear ur in such pain. pls. ring the non-emergency 111 NHS number. they will hopefully arrange for u to be seen ASAP. btw, all GP practices have out of hours medical cover. if u ring ur local GP, the'll have an automatic transfer to a Doc or give a locum contact no. pls also ring the Samaratians if ur not sleeping. they work 24/7. it's very important that u get some proper medical attention as soon as u can.

    warm wishes
