I think depression is coming back


Recommended Posts

Me too, in every particular, only my Abilify has stayed the same.  I think more Lamictal would help me, but I've had rashes in previous trials and am on Depakote, so I have to go up extremely slowly.

It could be seasonal, in which case a light box might help.  I also need to watch the caffeine; I drink a lot to get going, then crash, then sleep poorly, then need more the next day...

Feel better,

Hi Witchy,

I feel that way frequently too. I think the best way out is to be honest with your med team and tell them you need med changes/titrations. It sounds like your Lamictal is low. (I take 400mg!!! lol). Make sure you have a "No Harm" contract with your tdoc. Don't be afraid of whatever DX they decide on. Mine have changed over time too. I'm 27 and have dealt with this all my life. YOU WILL get past it- you're strong! Remember that!

Hey, Witchy,

I've been so unmotivated lately, hating myself, eating alot more than usual, even though Im trying to lose weight.  Im finding myself saying stuff about killing myself.  I don't want to go anywhere or do anything.  My patience is really short.  Nothing really makes me happy lately.  I've been extremely tired too, and going to bed earlier than usual, and still have trouble getting up in the morning.  I just want to stay in bed all day.

This definitely sounds like something you need to tell your doc about. It's not just your mood that has sunk, but you're describing many of the physical symptoms that are good indicators that this isn't a couple of bad days. Call the doc; it's a lot easier to crawl out of the hole if you haven't dug yourself all the way to the bottom yet.

I've called and left a message with my pdoc's secretary.  Im trying to make an appt to see him today.  Im just getting worse.  This really sucks.  Plus, Im sitting here questioning my decision to call.  I always feel so stupid for calling, like maybe Im not really as bad as I think I am, or something.  I don't want to bother him, though I know it's his job.  I see him next Tuesday, but I just don't want to go another week feeling like this.

It is his job, and if he has a problem with helping people he should have chosen another profession.

I'm sorry to hear that you are struggling.  I know the feeling.....try and do one nice thing for yourself today....bubble bath?
