Wed, Mar 20 7:44am · Selfharm in Mental Health

We all have secret hurts and pains that really affect us if we don’t try to deal with them. I don’t deal with mine at all hardly and keep them pushed as far down as I can. I know it’s not healthy. I’d like to encourage you to keep journaling. It’s safe, it’s private and it’s a release! As a severe depression sufferer I understand your thoughts of harming yourself but it can be overcome. I think you’re definitely on the right path with your therapist and I’m very glad you have someone you can trust. We are here for each other in a safe and judgement free place. Feel free to share anything you want.

So glad you’re through the hard part. I take Trazodone for insomnia too. It helps some but seems to wear off after 4 hours. Will you let me know if the CBD oil works? I’m very interested.

The dizziness, nausea and brain zaps lasted a week or more. I was an emotional mess! I had every emotion there is. I would sit and literally want to pull my hair out I seriously doubted I’d make it through. Stick with the taper. Are you being put on another drug? If so watch out for Seratonin Syndrome which I had. Not something to play around with. You will get through it and in the end it’s worth it.

Thanks Lisa for checking in on me! I’m feeling much better. It’s like a new world has opened up. I have great energy which lasts 5 hours or so. On days I need additional energy I take 2. Most days I only take 1-10mg. Hope you’re doing and feeling well!

It’s touch and go. If I get up early and take it before 11 I tend to do better. I also just take 1 10mg per day instead of 2. The 1 gives me all the boost I need.

Not much has changed as far as my kids go. But there’s a big change in me. My psychiatrist put me on Adderral last week to try and get me some energy and to work on me wanting to leave the house. My energy has been great! Feeling more like myself. This is such a good change for me!

Thank you. I feel for you while you’re going through Menopause. At age 31 I had a total hysterectomy. I was totally unprepared for being thrown immediately into Menopause. Even now 23 years later I will get a hot flash ever so often. Are you taking hormones? Life sure gets tough at times doesn’t it? I’m very thankful for this outlet.
