Don't despair. If there are problems, then there are answers. Your children, like you said, need you. Are you considering Pristiq? I am presently taking Pristiq and have found it very helpful for my depression. I highly recommend it.
If you have a history of drug abuse and depression, have you considered getting into therapy? I have been in therapy for many many years and have always found it very useful. Learning tools to cope with my addictions and depression not only kept me from further breakdowns but also gave me back my life.
If you need someone to talk to please keep posting. We are here for you.
Vic, please hang in there. I had a complete mental and physical breakdown last year. Have found the right doc and pulled my self up. It has been a long road, still not there but alot better. Like Laurie said your kids need you and you need them. There is life after all this you just got to want it and fight. Hang in there, alot of good people here to talk to. Anytime you want to talk just get on here and say hey somebody talk to me. Good luck
Hi, it's hard with these problems. Your health problems-IBS makes a person anxious. It also can cause vitamin deficiencies that feel like nervous break downs. I've had vitamin B deficiencies twice. The doctors thought that I had mini-strokes and was depressed. I couldn't think straight either-I felt like I was from mars.
Do what the other members say, get counseling-even with a physical problem, counseling helped me. Bottles of vitamin B 6 and B 12 from Walmart cured my depression. I've met several other IBS patients that suffer vitamin deficiencies. Start taking some B 6 and 12, take the recommended dose on the bottle. It'll take a while, but it can't hurt. Are you hungry for bread-wheat products? Thats a sign of a vitamin B deficiency. Also caffiene interferes with absorbing vitamins. It's hard to cope, and I got frustrated pretty easy. If you already have enough vitamin B, you'll just pee it out. It doesn't build up like oil vitamins-like vitamins A and E. Are you anemic? That's usually a sign of a vitamin B problem. It's also cheaper to do lab work for anemia than to do one for B. Also-the anemia also causes these problems of anxiety, irritation, depression, etc. Sometimes the things in our heads are caused by physical problems.
Please try the vitamins-they can't hurt-and let me know if they help.
Have hope - things definitely can get better. I had two complete nervous breakdowns and some 15 psychiatric admissions and now you would never believe I had a single psychiatric problem. Therapy helped me so much along with working with an herbalist who helped me with my nutrition. For me, the meds didn't help much though I certainly tried many of them. That's just me though - most people do get help from them. Therapy was the key - found a therapist who was supportive yet who challenged me to grow. Hanging on to the promise that God would never leave me or forsake me got me through some really bad times. Just don't give up - there is lots to hope for. Your children will grow and have children of their own - your grandchildren. What a joy! Please take care -
I haven't had a breakdown, but I've been very close many times. I hear you about your emotions etc. not like the person you were before... But, as you can see you can get support here. I'm in the stage of learning to feel good about myself for the baby steps I take each day. It may be just getting up and cleaning the house a little. But, compared to be in bed asleep, that's a positive step. You and I have our kids. They need us.
Relationships are tough. You love your ex. I'm in a loveless marriage. Ugh. I try to focus on my kids.
