Finally giving in....

Monday, August 01, 2011

Today I am off to a different doctor to state my case. I have arrived at the point where I need supplemental help to deal with anxiety, stress and unhappiness. The situation with Problem Child isn't getting better - in fact after her latest come-apart, my husband informed her mother that we needed a break and she needs to go live with her for awhile. Her response? Oh, she doesn't want to.

I KNEW Problem Child wouldn't go, but I was also really counting on a break. I had my version of a nervous breakdown this weekend, yanked myself back together after some very sweet and heartfelt advice from my parents, and made the appointment with the doctor.

I owe it to my husband and the three kids who don't make trouble to be more present, more under control, and happier. I'm going to request blood work to check up on any low levels of all the necessary fluids required to run this old carcass, and see if maybe she can figure out why I've been so dizzy lately. I'm not leaving without a prescription for whatever they call antidepressants these days, either.

    I just stopped by to see how you are doing...I hope things have gotten better. I am so glad you sought help...I guess I am a little late on this one. I did the same thing some years ago and was put on something...I cannot remember what is is right now but it helped my serotonin levels. I also got a number of a good therapist and was able to work through a bunch of stuff. It is amazing...depression, which I thought I would be forced to live with forever finally has subsided to an extremely occasional thing that I have learned to control so much better now. I wish I could give you a big hug. You are so smart. You will figure this thing out. emoticon

    You deserve to feel good and to be happy!
    Sounds like you are taking care of YOU! That's a good thing!
    I really believe that until we take care of ourselves first, we can't take care of others. Wishing you peace of mind and body! emoticon emoticon

    Glad you are getting 'reinforcements.'

    Tough love is.... tough.

    Hang in there, Problem Child will appreciate it.... some day.

    Oh honey. I'm glad you're going to seek additional help. I'm so sorry the wheels fell off for you lately. I do hope you find assistance and peace of mind once again.

    Your life will start looking much sunnier, very soon. Well done for getting help with a situation that doesn't benefit from depression.
