I just read your post today. How did your appointment go with your doctor last week? I'm very interested to hear what he had to say.
I agree with a lot of what has been said in previous posts. It is your decision if you want to stop your meds but you really do have to do it under a doctor's care. Some meds need to be weened off and not abruptly stopped. This could cause more problems for you.
Mr.T do you see a therapist? I ask this because a lot of times I think I have myself all figured out as to why I do what I do or have a certain perception of myself at times and my therapist tells me that I am completely wrong and shares her interpretation of my situation that makes me think twice and understand that most of the time I am wrong. I think therapy will make you feel better. Don't give up on yourself. There is help for you out there. You deserve to get the proper treatment for yourself and a second opinion would probably be a good thing to get right now.
(((Hugs)))) Keep us posted.
Thank you Sukay for asking. I did go to the doctor and he just kept shaking his head as I told him. He asked me what I was taking at that time and I told him and he immediatley upped the dose. He told me I may be feeling good now, but I can't go off them that quickly. I asked him If and when I could stop and he just avoided the topic. I told him I do not want to take meds and want to stop, to no avail. I will still keep weaning myself just at a slower pace. If I start to feel bad or hazy I will let him know other than that mums the word.
So That's life right now.
I wish they did have therapists here. What kind of therapist should I look for? I think I would have to drive about 2 hours to Bangkok to see any therapist, and that is not going to happen. Not with one day off a week. I am glad it works for you and sure it would probably help me, but it's just not going to happen anytime soon. I will keep my eye out for one though. Thank you
I will try to keep a close eye on the triggers. Right now I can't sleep because I got a new job and have to tell my Boss. I am having nightmares. I know I work things up, but I am expecting a big blow up. He will feel like I am making him lose face. Maybe it won't be so bad, but as always I think of the worst case scenario. He doesn't come back to town until Monday. UGHHHHH. Instead of being happy I found a new job I am tense, nervous and feel sick to my stomach. I'm such a wuss. Such as life. Anyway, I appreciate your advice. Thank you
Hi Mr. T,
How's it going for ya? Just touchin base. Hope everything is going fine.
I'll tell you the same thing I tell everyone else with this question. When you wean off the meds, make sure you take it easy, and drink lots of water.
Hey guys, I am doing fine. My stomach is in knots because I am giving my notice this morning, but will just have to suck it up and do the best I can. I just hate confontations or anything to do with screaming at me. I know that is coming. It's just the type of person he is. I just hope he doesn't stop my pay, which is due today for last month.
The new position is pretty much the same. I will be working as a salesman for a local development company. They want me to also take on the position of project manager in a few months once they see how I do and how quick I learn their system.
I have still been cutting my meds, but feel fine. A little bit shakey, but not too much. It seems that I can think more clearly. I hope it lasts.
Thanks for your concern
