I'm back into a bad depression.  Stayed in the hospital 3 days I think I got out too soon.  Don't know what to do now!!!  I'm taking so much meds I can't take anymore.  It just never gets better, I'm ready to give up.

Hi Starbrite. We've not 'met' as I'm new here and until a few days ago only a lurker. Sounds like you might want to call the Doc who discharged you from hosp. or, whoever you're using as primary doc; at least you should be able to talk to someone about this, esp. as you're just out from a 3 day stay. Of course we here on HW can help by showing you you're not alone, and caring from afar, but I do hope you have some sort of resource there which you can call. In any case, keep on keeping on,as they say. Take care! And, let us know how it's going as you push through what sounds alike a dark,dreary and heavy darkness. I'm sure many here know exactly what it's like.... again, take care of yourself, a new friend, OO

OO is right Starbrite,
 
You should probably talk to your doctor.  Or call somebody that you can talk to.  It has been a long winter, I don't know where you are but today was the first nice day that we have had in a long time.  I actually left my house.  It was for an appointment but it did me good to get out.
 
Do you think that you would feel better if you were readmitted?  Do you think that you should call the doctor that you saw in the hospital?
 
We are here for you hon, so feel free to post more, we will all listen to you. 
 
Talk to somebody if you can, keep us posted.  I will be here all night.
 
Take care sweetie,
hugs,
Karen

Hi Starbrite,

Im sorry that things have got worse for you, but please dont give up. Perhaps stay in the hospital a little longer this time. Are you able to have a wide range of activities in the hospital to keep your mind occupied?

I'm not going inpatient because I have a lot of people depending on me for different things. Last week I was canceling everything hope I can function this week.

Are you able to get other people to cover for you for the people that are dependent on you? For example, if a work colleague is dependent... can you get someone else to help them? If its kids... can other family help for a couple of weeks?

I hope this week goes better for you hunni. Have you considered reviewing your meds with your doctor? It might be hat some of the meds are starting to become ineffective and they need changing/adjusting.

All the best

Darren

Hi Starbrite,

While it is good to take a break from things.  If you find yourself sleeping all day and night, you might want to talk to the doctor about it.  I know, I have had fatigue for two days now.  And I recognize it for what it is.  I feel like my bed is calling me to just climb in and never come out.  But I don't want to be like that.  I slept for two years when I first got fibromyalgia.  Life just keeps going on with or with out us.  And in the meantime we are getting older too.  Maybe you need some rest, just don't let it take over.

Good luck to you,

hugs, Karen

I am so sorry that you are still going through this... I do not that you are a very strong person (how else have you survived all of this?) and that you are going to get better..one day at a time. And if you feel that you need to take a break then do it..try to do things for yourself,if it is a nice long bubble bath and treating yourself to a special meal....

Hi Star,
 
I think you need to talk to a doctor about this. Cancelling everything and hiding wont solve the problem, it just delays you dealing with it. You have come through so much while you have been here... im sure you will manage this one as well. Taking some time out for you sounds like a really good idea. Even if it is just half an hour in the bath or something like Shy said.

Star,
 
I think you need to let your doctor know what is going on.  Resting is good, but pulling the covers over your head for days on end can become a very addictive habit.  I don't want that to happen to you.  I don't want to see you that depressed all the time.  I really hope you will call your doctor.  Please remember you are very loved by many on this forum.
 
Love and Prayers,
 
Carla

When does the sorrow of losing a loved one go away?
What do you do when you are so angry your afraid to express it because it might get out of hand and you will go crazy?
I'm afraid that I will do something like put my fist through a window.
