Don't grieve alone; 14,000 members and growing
I am going on my fourth year without my wonderful Husband, my shrink has tried every drug she can think of for depression but none work. I find that if I take a codeine tablet I had left over from surgery really helps. Does anybody know of an opiate that would help me get over my grief. I don't think I can take this pain much longer. PLEASE HELP!!!!!
Hi my mother is the person I am mourning so it is not the same but I understand the need to numb yourself to the pain that you are feeling. it will be 4 years for me without my rock my beautiful mother this coming Feb. If you live in a state that allows marijuana you could try the edible kind. I don't live in a place where it is legal but on occasion have a chance to partake. Just a thought. I'm sorry for all of us hurting from the pain of losing our beloved. I am still not over it. She left me in charge of her affairs and there is still so much to do it overwhelms me everyday. She was the buffer between my siblings and without her here I am having to help in her place. I wish I could just drive away and never look back.
Thanks for sharing.
We are voting for it in Florida again this year, hope it passes.
I would like some sleep, but my doc took my ambien away, and its been 10 months, but I still wake up looking for Kevin.
I feel the doctors could care less of what we are going through.
I have been wondering how you all would respond to my suggestion. I highly "pun intended" recommend it to help with the pain we are all feeling. Also the doctors I have encountered trying to find a new GP are all in it for the money. I went to the same group of 4 doctors for over 40 years and cannot find any that come close to the care that I received from them. I am still looking for the right one. My brother called them "the Gatekeeper". I have one awesome doctor that I see for anxiety and depression. Thank God for decent doctors. Few and far between.
I take two Benadryl every night in order to sleep at all, except for the really bad nights, when I take a Lunesta (sleeping pill) instead. I also have a prescription for Xanax, to help with panic attacks.
The Benadryl / Lunesta allow me to get a bit of sleep, but nothing (no pill, no drug, nothing) will ever diminish my depression, because the reason for my depression -- the death of my beloved husband -- will never change.
It is very easy to become addicted to opiates, just bear that in mind.
