Well I have had bipolar and panic for 20 years, been in the hospital three times.  I am taking many meds and see my drs regularly except i have a new therapist whom ive only seen once. I have terrible anxiety and I take the strongest dose of klonipin 4 times a day so I dont see how I could have any anxiety. I am semi agraphobic which is just another form of anxiety.  I have been in remission for almost two years. Now I am crashing fast. I am depressed, anxious, so lonely, i spend al whole lot of time alone and dont have children. MY husband has always been supportive but he is in a very stressful job right now and really hurt my feelings last night when we talked which made me feel more lonesome. He is all I have in this world. I have my mother and sister who live far away and sister has bipolar and mother has depression so I dont want to put my burden on them. I just feel overwhelmed like I cant cope, Now I have to have it really quiet in the house during the day, when hubby gets home i have to go in the bedroom because cant stand the tv noise i just want to be in peace and quiet. I am isolating worse and shutting off my phone. I sleep during the day get up about 3 am or 330 someone please give me some advice. thank you sorry so long

The only advice i can give hun is if you feel like you are going to be a danger to yourself or anyone else then absolutly go to the hospital, don't even chance it. But from your other posts you don't seem to be that bad yet, do seek out others with similar conditions (like here :) ) and talk to your doctors about it, and make sure your husband knows just how important he is to you (whatever little things you can do, guys notice small things too).

update, now, i cannot function hardly at all, i am in bed almost all the time, it is either anxiety panic or depression, all in cycles. I cant cope with life at all at this poing. i do think and fantasize about suidice but i dont know when a person fineally snaps and does it. i think i was pretty close the other night. i felt totally alone, i am alone 90 percent of the time. if i didnt have this computer i dont kniow what i would do. i just feel i have already had a mental breakdown now i am a zombie.

I'm sorry to hear you're in such a state. I seriously hope that you will call 911 before you hurt yourself. But if you're thinking bleak thoughts and you need someone to talk to ASAP, you can of course come onto the board here, or you can contact the

National Suicide Hotline
1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433)
This is a combined network of the Amerian Association of Suicidology, the National Hopeline Network, CONTACT USA, and many other organizations. Call are automatically routed to the nearest crisis center to the phone from which the call for help is placed.

Helpful Web Sites: (listed by state) (includes Suicide Crisis Center and Depression and Suicide)

Good luck you you and don't wait for the suicidal thoughts to get out of hand. Didn't you say you were going home to see your old doctor this week? Hopefully that will help too.
