Tired

Posted , 3 users are following.

I'm tired and bored with living, I don't want to do it anymore. What's the point? Sorry to be negative. Just wondered if anyone else had these thoughts? Don't get me wrong, I'm not about to commit suicide, but I'm feeling somewhat empty. Help me, please :-)

    I was started on Fluoxetine 9 weeks ago. 20 mg per day. It didn't seem to be helping. I stopped a week last Sunday. I've hit a real low today. Saw my GP today, he states start again, stabilise and see if we need to increase dose. Be patient basically. I'm also receiving counselling but I haven't been honest about how I feel, ie don't wanna go on much more. It scares you??? Well it scares me too. Except, I wouldn't do anything, because in some ways I'm rational in an irrational way. I don't really want to die.

    Hi Jemima

    It is important to be honest with your GP and your counsellor.

    All AD's take time to 'kick in', do please try keeping on them and give them a fair chance to help you.

    Have a look around this site, it might help you on your very lows days.

    Its not a good idea 2 just stop taking your meds, like melbi said it takes time 4 them 2 start 2 work hang in there i no its frustrating and at the time u probably think is it worth it and y. Do u have any hobbies or is there anything u enjoy doin or may b try something totaly different. A couple of weeks ago i wasfeeling so crap and wondering y i was realy here or may b having a mid life crisis (just had yet another birthday) so without thinking did an abseil of the top of a 220 foot church just 2 find out i loved it may b not that extream but smaller challenges 2 boost your mood. Hang in there and keep posting. :hug:

    That sounds ke a good idea. I started a biusness course at the begining of this year part time i take it at my own pace and do wot and when i can. Just set up my own catering business a year ago. If i have a bad day i just leave everything alone 4 that day and jump on the bike or go 2 the gym and do something i enjoy and go back 2 it later. (Its not always easy 2 do). Keep in touch and let us know how u getting on chin up and take care. :ok:
