Thanks again ladies.. Hopefully they kick in soon, feeling like everything is so hard, I know I need to stop feeling this way it's just so bloody hard. I know I bought this on myself so I just need to untangle myself from this horribleness & get back to my life. I have signed the paperwork over & this whole situation is now in the hands of my psych & AHPRA.. Which is a releif. I will keep you all updated on the process. Hubby is being ok too which is nice - though he wants me to take this dr to court (my uncle is a high profile lawyer who would take on the case) but mentally, I do not think I am strong enough & I can not see how that could benefit me in any way. I get why he wants to but this whole ordeal has caused enough damage!!
hurry up meds, kick in!!
I've registered after being a reader only on here to write to you. I have been reading over your posts and wanted to suggest some things, I hope that's ok.
I am a mental health social worker in a large public hospital in the inpatient MH units and have a bit of experience that might help.
1. Take the ambulance bill to your psychologist and ask her to write a support letter to explain the current circs and that you were travelling to a related appt to this situation. It is my experience that this will be waived.
2. The meds are related to sleep and mood stabilising, take some time to work, and can have side effects which worsen your mood so keep in touch with the prescriber about that. Minimum 3-4 weeks however sleep should improve.
3. Trust is obviously a theme for you but also now your husband towards you. Local women's health centres will have affordable couples counselling options you can access.
While it sounds like you are well supported short term, when it all settles and if you are still struggling, don't hesitate to come to ED or contact your local COMHET team (find them on google) who can speak on the ph or visit you at home. Free.
Hope this is useful and not intrusive.
I'm wondering if your husband needs to see you take some very decisive action against this dr as a sign that you have purged yourself of your reliance on him?
How are you going today?
I think feeling depressed and anxious is probably normal in the short term. You won't feel like this forever. You are so brave for going through what you have!
You are doing an amazing job hun x
just checking in here, having a really really low day.. Is this normal with anti depressants? Yesterday I felt a slight improvement but today I feel I am back to square one!! I have been lying in bed for two hours now, my thinking is really foggy & I just want to cry. I feel like I need my GP to help me and I know that is ridiculous but it all feels so hard!!! Anyway, there is my vent. Thanks for reading!!
I have no advice but just wanted to send you cyberhugs.
You're doing great so far xo
