I am going thru a rough patch and hope to get some help in this section. I have multiple health condition that causes a great deal of physical pain. But it has taken a toll on me mentally. I was self – medicating with my pain pills. I was a nurse until a year ago my bipolar primarily put a halt to that. I receive SSDI now. I was stable with my bipolar for almost a year. However , due to the fact that I was self-medicating I ran out of the pain pills. Early on I told the pain clinic that I was not getting any relief from that does and felt I needed more. SO I out of pain meds , they tell me if the pain is so bad go to your local ER/ I go there Thursday and was rejected for pain medication,. All I got was a hand shake from the doctor and he hinted that Ii was maybe addicted to my pain medication.  So I was so upset I went home and this enormous feeling came over me of feeling empty and wanted not to live like this anymore. I creid so much, then I finally called my husband who  reminded me that I have reasons to live and that I had a 10 a.m. appointment with my psychiatrist.  I still was weepy but the psychiatrist wanted to admit me but ai promised I would be safe and that ai would have someone with me at all time until the meds start working. He increased my Effexor XR and my Geodon.- the afternoon does to 40 mg from the 20 mg dose.  But I never felt this bad before where I did not want to live like this anymore – with the pain and being depressed. I did not make my year of stability but I sure had a good time during that year.
