Getting thru the tough times

Posted by Smeegle on January 20, 2005, at 23:33:56

[coming out of lurk-dom]

What are some thing that one can do to help get thru a particularly rough time. I just came off Effexor and changed over to Lamictal and Welbutrin (already been thru almost all others) and find myself in some really dark places. I try to remind myself that SI is part of coming off Effexor (a great AD, but coming off it sux in a major way) and that it's not really me that wants to call it quits. This past weekend I recognized that I needed to find a safe place so I went to my mom's for a couple of days (she has no idea why I was really there). I just knew that I could NOT be alone. It gets really bad at night and now I keep waking up all night with serious SI. My appt is a couple of weeks away and I loathe telling him about my current state of mind, but I know I have to. I honestly fear that he would want to send the little men in white jackets out to get me. I just want my brain to function correctly and keep my thoughts focused in a forward direction, but keep finding myself slipping down and down. My DH isn't much help. Seems to think I need "space" (last thing I need right now) and to see my Pdoc. He has no concept of what it feels like to be depressed to the degree that I am (and have been for a very long time). His answer to everything is get a hobby and/or exercise. No help at all.
