    It's been a while since Ive been here. I had actually been well, and things moving forward in a positive light. I had made some new and good friends. This last month literally everything has gone to crap. Im highly discouraged. Maybe I shouldnt be cause Ive experienced that good in life is possible. Then why would I be so discouraged about hope? Im finding Im becoming rather discouraged like I said, and dont want to go this road again. I literally have nowhere I can turn anymore. There is no more support avaliable! Believe me Ive tried. I have no more options anymore...literally. I was actually told by both the hospital and therapist (she dropped me in June) that "there is nothing more they can do to help" me. It looks like Im a hopeless cause. Im ready to just give up and give in.

    Well, when even the "professionals" literally give up on ya you know youre done. My t even went so far as to tell me she literally had tried hundreds, thats right-hundreds, of approaches and techniques with me. Im the true and very definition of "a lost cause". I tried to be strong. Guess I was only kidding myself. Not like anyone in rl gives a crap anyways. Thanks for replyin

    looks like she missed the one method that would really work, or as i said before..she gave up on her capacity to function as a specialist..the moment she gave up, she lost the right to judge you. Perhaps you could try opening up to yourself since its harder to do it with others..the latter will follow automatically given time and effort.. :hug:

    thats so shitty!!!
    the one person who you should be able to trust to help you fucked you over.
    if it was me id read them the riot act and go looking elsewhere.

    people as we are all defined arent perfect and that includes drs. and therapists. my dr. even let slip today that all the staff are on medication of some sort - he wanted my wife to take a mild sedative as she has been getting stressed with it all.

    go shopping elsewhere, but you tell the therapist how you feel first. that they ar the ones who are lacking the abilities to help and perhaps should look at a different career!!!

    take care and you will be in my thoughts, i know its hard to fall back down again. but at least we know we can climb back up even if its for the breifest of moments.

    Time to look for a new therapist one that does give hope that does care I too had to walk away when a certain doctor told my daugther at 21 yrs old there was no hope for her guess what he was wrong and so is your therapist WRONG
    There is always hope and it only takes one right connection to make it so. ONE person that takes the time one person that believes you have to find another therapist okay one the will get you feeling better again. Never let anyone take that hope away never okay
    It is nice to see you Rhinolady i hope you keep fighting okay you got well once you can again

    I would if I could, but I cant. It's not a matter of wont. Besides her having tried so many things I find it hard to imagine (and Ive got a great one) that theres anything left to be tried. I just have to accept the facts here plain and simple.

    now that makes things tougher for you.
    i guess you can pick and choose the best of the meds of over the years - thats what im allowed to do.
    then for support come here please.
    really its better to be warm in bed doped up from the meds than lying on a slab cold and dead.
    you know we are always here for you and will be as possitive as possible no matter what you throw at us. maybe you might even need to throw some shit at us to get it out of you system, but we will still be here none judgemental - just mental. lol

    Thanks but no thanks on the whole med thing. I asked to be taken off all of them in Feb. They couldnt argue the point that they never helped-any of em. I tried prob 98% of them too throughout the course of 12yrs or so. Ive come to see they can actually cause more harm physically than good. Just one i was on had strict warnings that it could cause a fatal rash! Its suppose to help balance me so i wouldnt take my own life. Yet it could potentially cause a fatal rash? Like thats any better. Please note sarcasm. Id rather face my issues solo. Ive made it this far. The help and support of others has done more good for me than any treatment ever did. I even did ECT. That fried my memory. Thank you again for your support.

    yet there new meds coming out each day without the bad side effects like the older meds. i think if the new ones can give you back your life as it was it is worth the chance just my thoughts though i am glad you find support here and hope you continue to reach out take care.
