Just wondering if that's the cause...psych meds. I've been on them (many different ones) for nearly 20 years for major depressive disorder and anxiety. I am 40 years old and the last couple years have seemed cloudy for me. I am definitely not as sharp as I used to be! Currently on Viibryd, Abilify and Provigil. Thank you in advance!
I have noticed that I have been taking multiple naps throughout the day, just to get through it. When I wake up in the morning all I think about is sleeping. I'm looking for some inspiration of what I could do to help with my boredom. My boredom makes me feel even more depressed which is why I think I have been sleeping so much.
Thank you in advance
I realise sadly that I've come to depend on alcohol nightly to help me relax and lift my mood a little which it surprisingly does and help me sleep.
But I really don't want to continue like this as when I do have a break I feel much more clear and stable.
My question is as my willpower isn't the strongest would anyone be prepared to be my buddy to help me give up?
Many thanks in advance
I am currently on Ativan on an as needed basis but I can’t function at work on it- it makes me too drowsy. Does anyone have any suggestions I can bring to my doctor when I see him in two weeks? Thanks!
A year ago I sent a text to my cousin railing on her for not attending my son's high school graduation party. I have three cousins and two of them have 3 adult children each. I have attended many if not most of their functions including: high school graduations, college graduations, assisted with wedding and baby showers, funerals, and attended weddings. Only 2 family members came to my son's graduation.
Obviously, it bothered me.
So I… read more
Hi I just wanted some input on what happened with my old psychiatrist as it's really bothering me. Four weeks after my dose was increased I started to get more and more sleepy and tired to the point that I was bedridden most of the day. I also felt weak and dizzy like you do when you have a flu, but I'm certain I didn't have a virus or anything like that as this has happened to me before when I've been on too high a dose. I was like this for a week and basically… read more
Because we live in a very remote area and because of health reasons, I don't drive much, I am scheduled to see a tele psychiatrist tomorrow. I saw one a couple of times in person, but he didn't say it, but he didn't know how to help me. My anxiety is horrible, but they didn't do controlled substances. Then, I drove about 40 miles to see a psychiatrist on the screen and she said, I will see you in a month and didn't do anything at all. What's with people that everybody wants to wait? I'm loosing… read more
Do you think there is a correlation between having depression or bipolar disorder and being abused? Has anyone felt like they areistreated, looked down on, even harassed in their places of work? Is this normal? Do we open ourselves up to it or do people take advantage of our disorders?
