... APPARENT TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD, FRIENDS, FAMILY ETC, HAVING A COUNSELOR AND MEDS STILL ISNT HELPING WHAT DO I DO
Unfortunately, most psych issues aren't cut and dry. Sometimes, it takes time to find out what meds work for a particualr person. Unfortunately, these types of meds don't affect everyone the same way. I urge you to continue seeing your therapist and talk openly with your doctor as well about whether or not you think the meds he/she is giving you are working. Maybe the dose needs to be adjust or something new might be needed. Regardless, stick around here and I KNOW you will get lots of positive feedback from others who have had similar experiences. This is a great site and lots of people with different experiences and educations will be more than happy to share their knowledge with you. Good luck and keep us posted on how you are doing. God bless.
Don't give up. I know it is hard. I will give you a few suggestions that helped me. I sat down and thought about the worst thing that could happen but realized I was taking counter measures and that despite how desparate I was feeling, I usually made pretty good decisions. I started walking and it really helps the brain release the feel good chemicals. I am still having some financial issues, but, there really is NO debtors prison and I certainly am not the only one. I try to focus on even the smallest accomplishment and I try to day dream about something really good happening. I buy a rose for myself every once and a while to give me something to admire and smile about and I try to find comedies on tv and youtube.com and make myself laugh. Laughter also releases your own feel good brain chemicals. Find someone to talk to about former good times. You are doing things to help, so give yourself a big pat on the back about that.
Sometimes it does take a while to find the right medicine or counselor.Group actually helps me.Figure out one thing that you can do that will make you feel better, if only for an hour and do it. Forgive yourself for any wrong you think you are dwelling on.Don't give up. Hope You feel better soon.
Keep the hope I'm in the same boat... But, I find it more relaxing by isolating myself... I don't have to worry about other peoples negative energy rubbing off on me... This way when it all boils down in some form your keeping control over a little part of your mental state...
