Hi Miss P,

It kind of sounds like you might need a med change, either something new or your dose upped.

Have you mentioned this to your doctor? If not, I think that you should.

I hope that you feel better soon.

hugs, Karen

just came back from the doctors. im now on THREE meds. Limictal 200 mg, zyprexa 2.5 and serequil 50 mg.

im so bloody sick of feeling like crap. I'm stuck, I can't move forward. I'm 35, single, not working, moved home with my parents, I am all alone, mainly it feels that way, I'm smart, pills are packing on the pounds and I'm afriad ill stay fat forever and be single.

I know I am the only one who can make a change, but I live in a totally repressed area and I can't seem to settle in here enough to allow myself to MOVE FORWARD!!!! No one will ever want me like this. Hell, I'd run the other way if I met a guy who was in my shoes, even if I was like him, which he is me cause he is me!!!

Anyone been in this place before?

I think that you are being too hard on yourself. People love us for what is inside not what is on the outside. You sound like a wonderful person. I loved my 30's, wish I was back there, but can't go back. I am 49 now soon to be 50. Try to enjoy these years, they start going faster and faster and before you know it you will be my age.LOL

You know that we see ourselves a lot different than others do. You may see yourself as heavy when others don't. So give yourself a chance and hopefully the med change will help you to feel better about yourself. You sound like a very caring person and that is really what counts when it comes to relationships.

Good luck with the new meds

hugs, Karen

Hiya Pink!

Its nice to hear from you again although I am sorry the circumstances are not better. Do you do any kind of talking therapy? Im glad you have spoken to your doctor about this and that he has done something about it. Please give the new medications a chance to work. I think to move forward, like you want to, you need to do some kind of therapy.

Hi Pink

So glad that you posted,but I wish you were feeling better.

Please remember that most meds take 4-6 weeks to take full effect...just hang in there and give them a chance to start working.

Also as Darren said,therapy is a great tool,please consider that..we have to deal with what caused our depression in order to heal from it...

Pink, I agree with Darren. I sincerely hope you will give therapy of some kind a try. I tried many different kinds before i found the one that worked for me which was CBT. Good luck and hang in there :-)

i see a therapist every week. Sometimes I think she needs to probe me more. I tend to ramble on and I think we need to do some kind of CBT or DBT training now. I just went to the gym and had a great work out! I am the heaviest I have ever been, but I am going to have to accpet it since there isn't much i can do about it other than watch what I put into my mouth. I am a very caring and nice person. I want someone to see me for those things, not because of what i look like, because i wont care when im 50 if skinny or fat. I know ill be plump, and I will learn to love it. Besides, kids love hugging me now, they say I'm squishy. HA!!

Hi Miss P,

I really love the way you put that about being squishy.  I am starting to get use to that too.  Being a grandma for me is fun and kids do love to hug someone squishy.LOL.

I am happy that you had a good workout.  The last three days I have been able to get out for a walk and it has done me a world of good.  We had a long long winter and just lately the snow has been melting.  It was too icy to walk before now.  I am just happy that I was able to physically do it.  After being cooped up so long, I wasn't sure if I would or not.

I can honestly tell you that it is obvious that you are a very kind and caring person from the way that you write on your posts.  So I am sure that it shows on you.  People tend to be drawn to people like that.  You sound like you are easy to talk to also.  So be pleased to know that we here know you are a wonderful person.

I really liked your upbeat post too.  We need that from time to time.  It brings us all up.  Thank you.

Have a wonderful rest of the day.

hugs, Karen

Hi Pink,

It sounds like you need to discuss your needs with your therapist. If you feel that you need her to proble you more then I would raise that with her.

Pink I love the squishy comment too! Sometimes we are so obsessed with our looks that we fail to realize that we attract people who may lust us but really do not like us or respect us for who we are.
I would try a CBT group outside of your regular therapist or just start doing CBT on your own through books since it's the homework between sessions and not the sessions that determine your progress. I like the book by Sam Obitz because it is short and simple and has my favorite exercise that helped me the most in it called the TEA form exercise. I still spend several minutes a day doing TEA forms to this day :)
Take care!
