I really think i should go to the ER or patients first??I hope they don't put me in a phychiatric ward but I really need to see a shrink or something.Please the site deleted my last question.I don't know maybe because I sounded to frantic.I feel like just telling someone at the ER i am struggling with deppresion.Will they help me besides telling me I am crazy??
I feel like I am living my life as a lie.I am telling myself that just because I was diagnosed with back pain that it is okay to abuse my vicoden and ocassionally use reefer as well.I just don't feel happy anymore.It is way to late for me 2 go to the ER as my mother would flip out on me.I probably will take a clonazepam to relax as that is the only med that doesn't make me feel high.It tends to more or less make me relax anf fall asleep.Which is something else that has started to become harder and harder for me.I am not suicidal just know that I should be getting myself some help instead of just making up excuses all the time.
Hi, do you see anyone to help you with your depression and feeling bad? You say in your profile that you have mental health problems that you are trying to work through, does this mean you are waiting for a diagnosis? If you have unresolved/undiagnosed problems you should be seeing a psychiatrist to help you get to the bottom of it all. Have you ever tried any kind of 'therapy'? Such as CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) or DBT (dialectical behaviour therapy). They are processes of discussing your concerns about life in the present and in the past, and it helps you think differently about things and discover better coping strategies. In the short term you need to be seen by a doctor or other healthcare professional about your desire to misuse your meds, this will also have a bearing on you mental mind set. I hope you get some help soon and feel better.
Hi arcanoidcyst16. Hey, don't be so hard on yourself (leave that to me) trying to get you to give us a smile. I know that the benzo is helping your anxiety, but (always a but) you'll find yourself beginning to pop the clonazepam more often than once in awhile. Benzos are like that. Talking to a therapist is always a relief of sorts, meaning you can dump your problems, your fears, and its all in confidence. Much as a confession. You know, with a priest. Whats said is only between the two. So, it be you, and the therapist. More often than not, the therapist writes down bery little. They'll write say... mr.so and so appeared anxious to do. Had altercation in traffic situation. Mr so and so admits his temper was to blame... that sort of thing. And you're not crazy. Far from it. Time for a therapist, anti-depressant, and theres nothing "wrong" with that. If people that are in therapy, were to be locked up because of being crazy, there'd be a lot less people walking our streets.best to you.
Arcanoid I think you should talk to your mom. You are being to hard on yourself you know you need some help and I think your mom probably wants to help you that's what us mothers do. I would much rather my kids be honest with me ask me for help so I can than them suffer. Depression and drug abuse do not work well together. You need help from anyone who can and will. From people who love you and care about you. They want to help don't let them wait til they can't help. Call them asap. Someone should be with you. Jaime
you are depressed because a year ago you were told it ok to take benzo and opiods... you should go to rehab... I bet that your muscle tone has gone down... strong abs strong back... your chronic lower back pain was probably partly from opiod use any way... your body gets used to it and then it aches until you take even more... I am so sorry you let this happen. You probably havent really felt life for a year or more... get help today. Its too hard to do alone. call your doctor tell him you dont want more drugs you want to be weaned off and find out how to do it... dont let him give you anything for deppression... get out side and go for a walk start interacting with people more. make a list of things your are grateful for!!! My son did the same thing... after a year in jail, he got out has had a job working 12 hours a day ran a 5 k with the fam a couple weeks a go in 27 minutes and if his back hurts he takes a motrin...
You would be surprised how well the motrin will work for detox pain... it wont get you high but it helps you be more comfortable while detoxing. He was so depressed it was scary... go get help and reach out to family you need people who really care
