    I don't know what to do
    There are so many things that play a part, so it is difficult to sum it all up
    but basically I'm feeling much worse then I usually do, I don't know how to stand the pain inside, I don't know what to do

    When I'm feeling better I usually feel pretty good, everything's going to be alright kind of thinking, but when it becomes like this(like it always has to it seems) everything is totally the opposite...it's very tirering,you become tired of fighting it all the time

    That sounds like a major dip and depression. Have you ever been treated for any kind of mental health problem? Have you had a diagnosis or are you taking any meds?
    Have you spoken to your doctor?
    It is horrible and it wears you out and leaves you exhausted and you can't see anything good. With the right help though it will get better.
    Talk to us and tell us why you're feeling this way. It will help to have a good rant and write it all down.
    Sending hugs

    Hello CatherineC thankyou for your reply

    I've been on and of therapy and meds(anti depressiants) since I was 14, I'm 24 now, I ''think'' my diagnose right now is some form of Depression, I also have some problems with eating and feeling fat, similar to ed, not sure if it is an ed yet though, right now I'm on Prozac,20mg which is a pretty low dosage

    I just hope this will go away,the longer the pain is there, the more thoughts I get

    You need to get back to your doctor and ask for either an increase or a change of meds. You also need to talk about your body issues with your therapist.
    How are you doing in the therapy? Have you learnt any coping strategies?

    Yes maybe I should go ask for a change of meds,last time when I spoke to my doctor thought she didn't seem too positive of doing anything with them, her main goal was to get me off them as soon as possible, which is good of course but right now I think I need them or something else

    I received a emergency appointment with my therapist this tuesday and we talked about the different causes of my ''dip'' and also about some more strategies to use until next week
    she also adviced me to seek help emergent at a hospital if I needed it

    thankyou so much for taking your time :rose:

    Hi just wanted to say if you are not eating well depression will come back as your body becomes fatigued it is harder to cope Explain to your doctor that coming off meds may not be possible if you have had depression as you say for say long. I hope you can get medication readjusted I hope you feel better soon

    Hello total eclipse, thankyou very much for your reply

    in my case lately anyway(it changes though) I'm eating kind of normal, which means i'm probably getting all the nutrients I need,probably more then I need as well,I'm not sure though it is very difficult, what I am struggling with alot is the thoughts about myself and my body feeling fat all the time getting anxious if I miss my exercise etc..

    I will see if I can get a doctor's appointment so that they can change my meds somehow, I really hope they'll take me seriously though that's what I'm scared of

    again,thankyou very much

    Thankyou total eclipse

    I called them and they first said that going through therapy is hard and that I should try to keep in contact with my feelings, but she wrote me up for the team conference, since they're short on doctors I'm not sure when I'll receive an appointment, hope I'll receive it soon though

    tried to take a walk outside for 40-50mins, but it only made me feel more tired *sigh* will go to the cinema with a friend this evening, see if it'll cheer me up some:IrishDoll:

    I'll do my best to hang on, but it's very tiering, when is it ok to give up? For how much longer are you supposed to be in pain?

    Hopefully with help your pain will lessen and you will learn to cope okay The days of sadness will gradually be replaced with more days of happiness. It take time okay to heal it doesn't just happen. Don't give up yet you have so much ahead of you i know it seems hard right now i am tired so tired too but i can't give up i won't not when there is help. hugs
