Thank you for the nice posts. I am, indeed on a mental health drug. Abilify is not typically used for depression, ro cyclothymia in my case, but everything I have tried, and there have been trials!, has been able to help at all. I am not on meds for PTSD. I never really believed I had it, as i don't freak out at sudden noises, or have day time flashback, and I dont really remember any specific incident or starting point (though I have been through plenty of unpleasant experiences) However, I just in the last couple days checked out Avoidant PTSD, and that sounds like me to a T!!! So I guess whoever diagnosed me may have been right!
I am not in counseling. I have tried several times, but I just don't have the energy to keep up with appointments. I end up crashing when I have regular appointments. I am currently trying to find an agency that does in-home counseling, but it's hard to find. I know it exists, but the one agency here who did it has stopped, due to low demand. I am hoping another agency picked up where they left off.
So Denise, when you are out of a crash, you feel more in touch with your emotions? Do you feel more when you are having good days?
