I hope your depression will improve. Take care!!
post #32 of 53
I'm sorry you are in such pain! I hope you are able to post when you are feeling better. You have been through so much in the past few months...it would be pretty overwhelming for many people. But when you add serious depression to it...I'm sure things have felt impossible for you lately. I pray that you are feeling better real soon, and able to get back with your wonderful husband and great kids and kitties!

I'm a psych nurse, and would be glad to talk via pm's if you think it might help...I'm no therapist, but I know a lot about psych meds, and I feel like we are friends from when you were posting here before.

Butterfly,
I am glad that you are going to get whatever help the dr suggests. And I am thankful that you have such a supportive husband. I lived with my in-laws for years, that is never easy. (it was H-E-double-hockey-stick for me) But we have always said "if we can make it through this, we can make it through anything!" And I feel the same for you. Good Luck! Keep us posted!

Here's what went down....

Saw the therapist...we talked over things, by then I was stabilized out again, discussed if they would bend the strings and allow me to get individualized or group therapy while hospitalized (cause that's what I need most) and the answer was still no.

So I'll see my therapist every other week after the 12th and she's going to be doing DBT therapy with me which I think stands for Dialectial Behavior Therapy, it sorta retrains how you think about things. And I have handouts to work on and all of that.

She and DH re-oriented that the getting better part is a two way go of it....I have to put in some effort if I truely want to overcome this finally.

Plus I think the Effexor is finally out of my system and the Wellbutrin has kicked in and that's helping too.

Thank you for all of your thoughts and what not.

No prob. It's what we do.

DBT is the best treatment for personality disorders. I have personally seen people improve greatly, and I'm sure it will help you, too. It is quite a challenge, but so worth it. And way more effective that hospitalization for personality disorder.

I am very happy for you! I know you are still hurting, and might not believe that there is help for you, but I am certain that in time you will be able to look back and see true progress.

You are still in my prayers often. I've met people in my line of work who have overcome great things, I know you can do it too! It's just something about what you've shared with us...I can tell, you will succeed!

They really should put a warning on that stuff...cause the withdrawels is what caused my major meltdown.....that and the doc not monitoring me like he was supposed to (hence me changing docs)

And okay, what is it with Pandora and licking my fingers when I'm typing.....
