In reply to get a life!, posted by justyourlaugh on January 8, 2004, at 9:13:44

Hi, JYL,

> my husband keeps telling me to "get a life"..
> i want to please him but think what i am doing is holding me together..
> could i be wrong?
<<I don't know your history or situation. My family has kind of ganged up on me lately to stop meds as well because I'm still not *normal.* But I, like you, think meds are the only thing helping me. I *am* however, going to a pdoc (instead of my regular internist) to talk about meds to see if there is a better combo, different drug, etc. for me. Can you do that, or have you already tried a lot of different drugs?

I know what it's like to please a significant other and keep harmony in the household, but you do have to look out for yourself and put yourself first. Nurture yourself, explore different therapies, both meds and talking, to see what works best for you. Both your husband and you want you to be better. He apparently just thinks there's a different way to get there than you do. I say trust your gut.

Hang in there, I'm thinking of you.

Susan
