thanks for your reply ive been to my doctors twice now ..hes referred me for counselling and changed my meds which means ive had to lower the dose on them to change over im changing from lofepramine 210 mg to sertraline which he says is good for anxiety. I was already feeling suicidal before this which i did tell the dr on the 2nd visit but i didnt have a plan or anything but its got soo much worse im behind with everything and so disorganised i just cant cope with it all and it will all eventually come to a head which is what im so terrified of i just cant see any other option i cant bear to live with this sense of dread and fear all the time it feels like your loosing your mind !
I really appreciate that you took the time to read my post thankyou

Hey S :hug:

What is it that you are fulling behind with? perhaps by knowing me or others may be able to help?

While you are changing meds you will not be getting the beneficial effects of them, so please bear that in mind, they need time to help you. That being said this is therefore one of the main times you will need extra support, so try to talk to whoever you feel comfortable talking to whether it be your doctor, or maybe just on here. It is very important to keep your doctor updated especially when your feelings feel out of control, hopefully they will push the councellor through faster but at least keep a closer eye on you and be there if you need them.

Keep holding on S, you are a very special person from what I have seen, you are worth the fight.

You can pm me anytime - I mean that :hug:

Hi. Good of you to seek help. You can always cope if you have someone else to help you when you need it.
I've had great experiences with Sertraline. For me, it reduced both my anxiety and depression.
What's triggering all of this?
Please don't give in. You may not be in control of your emotions, but you are in control of how you act and express them. While they may feel overwhelming, you have to remember that the power to act still rests with you.
Feel free to PM me.

hi shadow, sorry to see you struggling so much. the fact you are reducing meds make not be helping, how long till you start the sertraline? maybe its worth seeing your doc again to explain how much worse you are feeling since last visit.

in the meantime, you know everyone here will support you, and try and remember you will react to reduced meds and its not really how you feel.
