... involvement, constant sadness, am now scared of the dark an see a male figure in my room; therefore, i don’t sleep throughout the night and the constant need for (sexual) male attention. My head of year has recommended i see the councillor, who directed me to a psychiatrist, who is making me see a psychotherapist and GP, today my GP gave me fluoxetine, am very reluctant to take any medication. will it seriously help? i feel like dying then dealing with this any longer :'(
Have you told your psych that you feel suicidal? I think you need a place where you can relax and get the help you need. People who not only deal with depression, but your different addictions (drugs,sex). If your nervous about taking medication, you can't trust any street drug!! Please, please get the help you deserve! Just pick-up the phone book or google a suicide hotline... or you could go to the emergency room they will get you the counciling you need!! write back we are all here for you... Sweetpea
I definitely agree that you need to tell your psychiatrist that you have suicidal thoughts, even if you don't think you would act on them. Your brain chemicals are simply unbalanced from drug abuse. I myself just recovered from opiate dependence and bulimia a few months ago. Prozac is the only FDA approved drug for treating bulimia so it is most likely worth giving it a try. It can help your brain chemicals balance out. Just be patient, try to stay positive, and remember, healing takes time. Its not something thats going to happen in a week. You will be okay. Tough times are never permanent.
