Does anyone else ever feel like they're just gonna lose it?
I often feel like I'm just playing a role (pretending to be normal)...when on the inside I'm losing my mind.

I go to see him today...but I always feel like I'm the one guessing what I need from my meds he just asks if I'm feeling suicidal. It's almost a joke.

That must be frustrating!! They lose sight of the smaller problems when a bigger one comes up. That used to happen to me...

When I feel like this I usually have a major stressor going on in my life.
Sometimes I know what it is and sometimes I'm unaware. I have to pray
to my Higher Power to just get me through the day...this helps me.

Learning to accept what I can and can't take on...another words...what my
limits are has been humbling but life saving. For example, I quit my job last
week because it was such a negative, low morale environment and such physically
demanding work that I became depressed. I had to realize it was my trigger and
either deal with it or get honest with myself that I couldn't handle it.

Good luck to you...it will get better!

Today I feel like I'm gonna lose it! Irritability at 10, depression at 11 out of ten, anxiety 10....And I am not exagerating these numbers, this is truly where I am today. I'm on the brink of being in crisis.

Emailed pdoc Monday to try and get in asap this week, but so far no luck and tomorrow is a holiday for us in Canada, so that leaves Friday and doubt he is even in that day, sigh.

I have counselling tonight, with the counsellor who barely lets me speak :( But I didn't cancel 24 hours ahead, so I have to go... This might be my last session with her...

Anyway, still proud of ya red! We just gotta hang in and survive days like this I guess. I don't know how to do that today.

Mogs....It's not easy taking problems one at a time when they refuse to get in line.  Lol Lol Lol
be strong, take a deep breath, know someone is thinking of you and believes in you. You are strong and can make it thru this. Now is the time to take a step back and take a moment to yourself.

Not2L8,

Thanks for the support. It means a lot. I actually managed to get a lot of work done this morning at work, but now I have stopped. I have an enormous headache. I have TMJ and my jaw is killing me. Ugh.

Anyway, thanks again. I will try to do as you say b/c it's good stuff :-)

Yep, I admit it: I sometimes feel that I'm just gonna lose it. I'll be sitting somewhere, and the thought will cross my mind: "What in the world am I doing here?" I'll feel panicky. I'll want to flee. I'll feel that I'm gonna go absolutely wildly crazy. I breathe deeply and try to maintain some sort of equilibrium. Somehow, I make it through. But it stinks, doesn't it?
 
Somehow, I feel it's better to be around other people than to be alone. If I did lose it, for example, wouldn't it be better if I were with people, I ask myself? Wouldn't they get help for me? Which often leads me to not want to be at home, alone, by myself. OK, I have animals that I take care of and that mean a lot to me, and they're at home, waiting for me. But I try to be out as much as possible.
 
I wish I could say something that would help. But all I can tell you is that yes, I often feel I'm gonna lose it. You're not alone.
 
All best wishes and thoughts,
