I'm sorry, Allison. Sounds like you are having a hard time.

Please try really hard to take your meds as prescribed for the rest of the week. Both your therapist and your pdoc will be back after that.

Vacations are the worst! My therapist is on the second week of his 2 week vacation. I'm really looking forward to his return. I have his cell phone number if I need him, but, like you, I don't want to interrupt his vacation. He gave me the name of someone I could go to see, but he said that she will call him right away, too. So that makes it so we don't have an option for getting help that doesn't involve interrupting the vacation.

Your meds should be working better than what you describe. Does your pdoc have a receptionist who could set up an appointment for you really soon?

I have a friend who has taken extra pills and washed them down with Alchohol. It scares me when she does that. I'm glad that you didn't hurt yourself too badly, though it sounds like you definately did enough damage to affect the next day. If you feel like doing that again, you could call the on-call therapist or go to the nearest emergency room. I know you don't want your therapist called (so maybe the emergency room is a good choice), but actions like that really do need to be looked at, and you would need some help. If you aren't feeling better now than when you did it, you might want to go to the hospital now.

Please take care of yourself, and get help if you need it.

Let us know how it goes.
