I think I am losing it again, and I am afraid to tell my husband.  He has had just about enough of my bp episodes.  I am feeling agitated, and shaky and I am crying.  My insurance will not approve my Geodon Rx now and my kids are having difficulties I just feel so overwhelmed right now and I am pissed at myself.  I also colored my hair three times in the last two days, and cut pieces of it off.  I shaved my hair off in March and can't remember 4 days from taking some pills.  My husband sat up with me all night and worked all day and my son who was here at the time (my children live out of town) stayed up with me during the day when he had to work 3rd shift.  I know that I am just going on and on, but if I get bad enough to go into the hospital it would be to much for my husband working six days a week, ten hours a day, plus having to take care of two dogs, and one cat.  I was doing so good just a week ago!!!  What should I do? Wow I feel exosted just getting that all out.

Hi Maggie,

You do need to tell your husband, obviously. He needs and wants to know. He cares about you and wants you to be healthy and you're not going to be able to keep anything from him.

Second, you need to call your doc. Tell him your insurance company won't approve the Geodon and he will either 1. Give you samples or 2. Give you a different prescription.

You're going to be alright. Get some sleep. You need your sleep.

Hi Maggie,

I totally agree with serafena.  You need help and need to speak about that with your husband and let him know it's time for you to get into seeing your pdoc a.s.a.p.

Our first thought is usually that we are going to end up in the hospital when most of the time we just need a medication adjustment.

Serafena is right.  Let you pdoc know about your insurance situation and I'm sure he will be able to give you some samples or just have to try another drug (which there are many options to choose from) that your insurance can work with.

Things aren't going to get any better if you keep quite.  They are going to only end up getting worse for you and your current family situation.  Do the smart thing and take charge of what you can do.

Best wishes. blush

Thank you. I am feeling more calm today, but only had a little sleep, and yes I did call my pdoc just now.  My problem with my husband is he is an alcoholic and comes home after a long day and drinks until he is drunk and starts right away.  Do not get me wrong he is great but lately he has been getting drunk faster and that is one of the things I am upset at.  I will try and talk to him today (right away) when he comes home from work to tell him.  Thank you
