I'm back, still hurting, sad, lifeless


Recommended Posts

Have been through several series of ECT. It works but has screwed up my memory something awful. After

my last one, I swore I wasn't going to have anymore. But now, near the time I'm supposed to be getting my

next maintentance dose, I'm hurting so bad and considering it again and fantasizing about suicide.

I've just recently had VNS implanted. God, I hope it works.

I've lost my job, dog, teenagers, & house in the meantime. i've become a recluse.

Please send positive energy or prayers my way. I have a headache all day long, my body aches all over, every limb of my body is exhaused.

Can anyone relate?

Thanks Libby and Latin Pro. It's amazing how just a couple of words of encouragement can help.

Saw Pdoc today. She increased my vagal nerve simulator today so now I feel like I have a lump in my

throat for about 30 seconds every five minutes and I sound like frog for those 30 seconds. I'm scheduled

for ECT twice a week for the next three weeks. Do you think it would emotion wise to ask my 16/17 year

old son to take me? Thanks.

I think it would be a last resort. Having children take care of adults isn't really good for them or their job. Maybe take a cab?

I am delighted however, to see you here. I have been wondering about you.

I'm glad you finally got the vegal nerve thingy. I sure hope it works.

Hi Rhonda,

Gee, It has been a tough road for you, but it sounds like your pdoc is getting you the best possible treatments.

You know your child best. But, a teenager who is driving already has significant responsibility. And in comparison to having already experienced seeing you be ill and the losses that have accompanied it, taking you to and from the hospital is not going to be some traumatic shock.

So, yes, I think a 16/17 year old should be capable of taking a parent to and from the hospital. Would you have any question about this if you were having an appendectomy?

best wishes,

a.m.

p.s. At the risk of being forward... Your photo is cute as a button... *wait, don't run away screaming.....* Hopefully you'll be back to smiling again soon. ;)

Hey, I remember you. I'm so sorry to hear that you're still struggling, dealing with so much mental crap and have had to make such tremendous sacrifices. Too many. I don't know what to say except I'm pulling for you. I hope to goodness that your life takes an up-turn before long. (((Rhonda)))
