I really need someone to cheer me up, since I feel like I am going mad and no one told me. I went to the psy and he reffered me to a anxious clinic, but didn't want to write that I was suffering from DP/DR because he was afraid they got scared and freaked ou? What does it mean??? That he is the only one who think I am not nuts?

I am more sad than ever. If I am going nuts please can they give me something to help me? I really feel like shit. I don't know what to do. My psy looked at me crying and said nothing and nothing to cheer me up. I really feel left out. I even talked about him about news med combos, and well, we'll upgrade my current AD and see....

But it's been 18 months that I feel like I am someone else, please help me more than that!!! I can take any anti-anxiety, sleep pill, as long as it help me, but no anti-psychotics, I don't understand why....

Anyway I don't know what do to, I don't want to feel like this all my life. The more I am sad the more I freak out and feel nothing, and depressed, and I feel like nobody can help me.

Sorry for the post. Kel if you can cheer me up :) (sad)

Cynthia,

I don't know your situation and I might thus not be the best person to offer advice but I can relate to the feeling of hopelessness and fear. It CAN and WILL get better! Hang in there girl!

What makes you upset? What makes you angry? What is working and/or not working in your life? Turn away from obsessions/DP/DR and face everything else in your life. Go outside. Walk around. How much better can it get while you're sitting by yourself constantly worrying about your condition? Even if you only get a 5 minute relief but occupying your mind with things other than this, it's already a success.

You're stronger than you think. I know that all of us here are strong if we are able to put up with this for so long. Use that strenght to focus outwards. Accept that this is the state in which you may be temporarily and simultaneously force yourself to read, to talk to a friend, to take a walk.

I know that you can come out of it.

Good luck!

Cynthia,

My advise...Just keep pushing!

Like Tidal said...you have to keep yourself occupied. As hard as it is (and trust me, I know), you have to find stuff to do to keep your mind occupied and to develop a sense of accomplishment at the end of each day.
All you can do is continue to do that.

You have sought out help, which is all you can do and you just have to keep pushing! We're all here for each other. Hang in there!

Take care,

Kelson

Hang in there Cynthia, we all have our bad spells. But like everyone else says...keep pushing, you'll get through it and we are always here for you :wink

Keep looking toward heaven and things will work out (if your not religious sorry just thought the picture worked out with the saying.......)

Dont worry about the Psy not writing DP/DR you're over-anxious right now..
REMEMBER, back to a time when you were less anxious and could see life very clearly..
Now, see Him leave DP/DR off the form and slowly nod and ask Him why (imagine back to a time when you had NO stress)..
Let Him say His reply and just let it go.

Leave your Psy crying out of your memory for now, I think it's not helping your perception, is it.

The more drugs you try the more you'll "believe" they can "TAKE DP/DR AWAY" (they cant).

Leave your crying Psy out of your memory, and stick to the elevated AD dose. Go to the store and buy some expensive icecream..

Go rent a video from the store and see the people who are there and get all this Psychiatric nonsense out of your head.. I think you need some champagne. You're very sensitive Cynthia. If you're on Anti-psychotics, your Psy will have to write it on forms etc, and it's better to write DP/DR than a name of an anti-psychotic, in my opinion (if you see what I mean). I think, you're too dependant on your Psychiatrist. He's a human, He's not a God, He doesn't have a magic wand, and you're not an "extension of Him", He's a PROFESSIONAL.
You need to distance yourself a bit MENTALLY from your Psychiatric service providers, I think..
