Denise- drop your doc and get a new one if he won't be creative and is not willing to prescribe things that might invovle risk. I had a horrible pyschiatrist before, and I switched and it's made a world of difference. I got ativan for anxiety which has helped me tremendously, and my previous doctor refused to prescribe anti-anxiety medications because of their slight possibility of dependancy.

It takes more courage to live through the pain than to kill yourself. Your courageous person, just because of the very fact you are alive right now. I think we all want truth, and suffering is a part of life so therefore it teaches us about truth.

I hope you exercise if you can. It's a nice release and also a distraction- Don't feel guilty about taking your zyprexa. I felt guilty about taking ativan for a while because I felt like I wasn't dealing with the suffering. My therapist explained to me that there are some things we humans just don't need to suffer, theres no gain from it, and taking a medication for that kind is justified.

You could be a mentally healthy person, and still see a therapist. THey do much more than try to "fix" us. It's just nice going and talking to somebody who doesn't really have an opinion of you and you can say anything to. Good ones are also encouraging, (though not overbearing) and give us tools to shoulder our burden until we get better. Think about talking to one. They're also good to have around when the things you explained are taking place in life. (illness, relationship problems, ect.) They're there for support and guidance during tough times.
