Theresa, are you trying too many anti depressants?

Comment by Theresa on July 17, 2018 at 6:16am

Ok so my friend had to do the unthinkable, her dog is not suffering anymore.  But it just set off a crying spell with me.

Maybe I need to go to the dr again, for the 10th time.

So he can just look at me and say, do you want to try and anti-depressant.  ugh

Bluebell how are you?

Avi,

I hope your Dad is doing well.  That must have been hard on you being in the hospital.  I am also sorry you are having more guilt like me.  It’s a horrible feeling.  Also one that others don’t understand.

Hi All, 

Hope every one is doing fine. Last week my father got an infection and was hospitalized so could not follow much here. Now he is better and recovering. 

Virginia, you seem to be totally engrossed in the guilt which I can understand as I feel the same way. Today I saw one community of Gall Bladder Cancer survivor (same disease which my mom had) and I came to know that my mother's cancer was also treatable to some extent and there are people who have successfully got out of this. I was told by my oncologist in India that it was not treatable as it was stage IV. 

This makes me feel devastated as I feel that more research would have helped her. 

Virginia, you mention that you expect forgiveness from God and your mother. I guess they already forgive you, the issue is that we need to forgive ourselves.

My boyfriend finally gave up.  I don’t blame him at all.

And Brett I will tell you I don’t deserve the prayers, pray for my Mom please.

So the dr talked to my therapist and he told her the same things he told me.  I had asked her to try to get more answers.  I actually feel worse because I had someone ask some doctors about using ventilators.  The oncologist told us if there is cancer in the lungs someone won’t get off a ventilator.  That is why I didn’t want her on one.  Other doctors say that’s not necessarily true.  Of course, they didn’t see my Moms records and the ICU dr says she wouldn’t have come off it, however I am left wondering again.  I don’t trust doctors.  I don’t know why I didn’t make them do something.   It’s all so so horrible.

Theresa, since talking to you last I have been searching for a natural solution to your issue. There are new supplements since I went through this about a year and a half ago, but my best advice would be to talk to your doctor about trying a new anti-depressant.

What’s the point

Whats the point of living if there’s no happiness?  If you don’t care about anything except being with the person you lost...if everything is meaningless...if you can’t stand the pain or the numbness...if you don’t belong anywhere..if everything feels wrong...if you have no idea what to do about it...if you can’t get through the daySee More
