    Don,

    Those are lies going on in your head. You need to replace them with truth. Write out truths on 3x5 cards and when the negative thoughts start up, start reading your cards and read them aloud. Don't believe the lies!! I am sure there are many people who love you and care about you.Β

    Hi Don, be patient and I am sure these feelings will subside with time. I still have the odd wobbly moment, but try not to let it hinder your getting better. I am sure it's the meds settling and will lift in a while. Until then try and keep busy enough to not worry about what other people think. Like Sissy said I am sure there are many people who care about you. Lee.

    Hi Don,

    That's the meds! Had exactly the same and then I realised that I was wasting time looking within when the cr*p is without. Most (if not all) of my own problems were caused by people not me. It becomes difficult to rid yourself of such thoughts as they do tend to multiply because yer at such a low ebb. I decided to ignore them by doing something completely different, for example, if I was in bed woken early by a vivid dream or dreams, I would lie awake only to have those intrusive thoughts creeping in. So, the only thing to do was get up and get on with the dishes or work on the laptop, come here and see if I could help or be helped.

    Nowadays and I still get the odd dreams and thoughts, I get on with things and tell em where to go (sometimes out loud which can be a tad awkward for others, but not often as company does take yer mind off things), that has helped me deal with such cr*p.

    As you can see again Don you aren't alone already have some great advice!

    Enjoy yer day, make it so!

    Best Regards,

    David

      Hang in there Don! Week 14 in progress and starting to feel the small but positive changes. Keep busy, and keep in touch, and don't doubt that you are on the right Med at the right dose. Let your doctor decide that. You are doing a great job, so don't be discouraged. Things will start looking up soon. Lee .

      Yes Don, we are going to be just fine. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ‰. Patience even on the crappy days, and there may well be a few. Just put one foot in front of the other and know that every week makes a difference. Cheers, Lee.

      Morning Don,

      Yes, I do think it is still early for you. Some lucky people since I joined this site, though only one or two if me memory serves me right, seemed to pass this stage sooner. However, it is that old saying "everyone is different" so, I would try not to worry too much about it and get on with moving forward. Do not try to be "yer old self" or "get back to normal" again because those are some of the reasons we are here.

      It is a new year and new decisions have to be made the future can be brighter and better if we know where we have been and most us will agree that was not a good place for any of us!

      The important thing to do is keep readin and keep posting and even though I have been here a while it is still my life line to sanity! Not a way back!

      Keep in touch and good luck!

      Regards,

      David

      Cheers David

      The doctors haven't got a clue about these drugs they say take this pill and you will feel better in a few weeks and I think that doesn't help us at all because that's what we expect which puts us back when it doesn't happen joke anyway I'm going to stick it out at 20mg for a bit longer and see how things go πŸ˜€
