    My dear heart,

    I soooo totally undersatnd what you are saying!! While life at times does suck....the alternative is a permanent solution to a temporary problem!

    I went thru oodles of anti-depressant and I found most but not all Doc's tend to undertreat! Some people...me for one...are the exception to the rule! I was finally put on Effexor XR 300 mg. daily...

    My dear heart,

    I soooo totally undersatnd what you are saying!! While life at times does suck....the alternative is a permanent solution to a temporary problem!

    I went thru oodles of anti-depressant and I found most but not all Doc's tend to undertreat! Some people...me for one...are the exception to the rule! I was finally put on Effexor XR 300 mg. daily along with Wellbutrin. The combo has made a big difference.

    Ironically, my Gastrointestional doc said "OMG that's way to much Effexor!" To that I gleefully informed him to go read his PDR because the maximum dosage daily is 375 mg. Poor lil young kid....I should have been a bit kinder.......or not!

    At this moment you sound like you feel you are in a vortex being sucked down and out of control........but if you will.......try to grab onto the sides and pull yourself up......to where you can breath in deep...and do it over several times! Then contact your mental health provider....regardless of the time( they make plenty of money so he/she can handle a bit less sleep! If you can't get he/she call 911 and go to the nearest E.R. and be honest!!! Tell the docs how you truely feel......there is NO shame in sharing your feelings!

    I didn't do that when I should have and I thank the Lord for not letting me take the easy way out! Please don't be as weak as I was........no Stupid is a better word!

     

    The sun will come out tomorrow and these seemingly horrific problems CAN be dealt with.......I promise you!

    I didn't realize until after I added a comment that you are taking meds at night. What do they have you on during the day? Are you on any antidepressants? I'm on Welbutrin and Cymbalta. But I think they have contributed to weight gain. I think I need to have mine adjusted too, because it seemed these were working at first, but now they don't seem to help anymore....

Also, are you seeing a counselor or someone to talk to? Dr.? Take care.

      What about ketamine injections in low doses? I heard in States they have research trials as well do as off label treatment

      for severe depression. I read a positive feedback from patients.  I think I  am similar to your depression and worse as I went to take 19 ECT treatments. Jana

    Dear Friend:

     

    I do understand how bad you feel and depression does really suck!! Please don't give up!!! Ignore any posts like that jackass!! Take one day at a time. I still have to fight depression  asd I have suffered some major tragic events which triggered the depression.  There are days I literally was so depressed that I could not get out of bed. for weeks at a time.  I felt like I was so alone and its a real dark place when you are suffering depression. YOu just don't want to do anything.   

     

    Please try to think of something that might make you smile or laugh. maybe try to lose yourself in a good book or if you like TV maybe a funny comedy might help. I know its a hard road but do not GIVE UP!!!! I will say a special prayer and think good wishes for you that better days are coming soon for you. Keep remembering you are special and your life is worth so much, Wishing you to find some happiness and enjoyment and the road to recovery.

    Hello!  I know from experience that it is so hard living with depression. However, I see a glimmer of hope for you.... where? you ask?  You are on this site searching for answers.  That is a start.  Actually, the biggest step is to admit we have a problem, (Depression) then the next big step is to search for help.  When we are no longer looking, that's when I believe it is dangerous. Some of my days are so bad I only want to cry but for some weird reason feel guilty for doing so.  I have so much to be thankful for...yet still find myself depressed. Two meds I take at night that help me sleep are meloxicam and Norco.  Norco for my pain and meloxicam is a muscle relaxer that helps me relax so I can sleep.  Sounds like you need something to help you sleep at night so your eyes will heal.  Make sure you're eating right and getting plenty of water.  They tell us exercise is good, but when we don't feel like doing anything, that's out of the picture, right? I hope you feel better soon!  I understand how you feel. I will pray for you.

    Hang in there! You are not alone. Sometimes it takes awhile to find the right medications.

     

    May I ask what meds you are taking and for how long?
