haven't posted for a while some of you might remember me . i'm venting out if there is someone intrested to listen, i'm not doing terribly good things started at new years eve i gone back to smoking that night and alcohol. but since that night I haven't had any drinks yet, so far I'm just gona have alchohol when there is a party or something.

I'm sleeping more than I ever slept before, I managed to reach 48 hours.. yes of continues sleep. however last few days I'm tryign to hold it toghether. it's hard to stay awake when there is nothing to do.

in the last 6 years i have bin on and off work, 6 months ago I left my last job because I could not take it anymore, tghey stoped paying me because my performance at work is very bad because i keep getting boared and nothing to do while I am supposed to be reading or planning things, I end up wasting time thinking about nothing..

I haven't seen a doctor in a while, I'm sick of them stupid doctors, all they keep telling me is to take my medication and go do Gym. I'm tiered of Gym and people telling me what to do , I want to live a life without Gym... I just can't do it.

So i'm taking the last medication the doctor's subscribed to me , which is effexor, lithuim, lamictal, akenton, ablify, inderal. running out of lamical atm and I feel better without it actually. I have this irritation that keep comming to me where i can't stand sitting down I keep want to walk, and i'v bin trying to find out is it me or is it the medication.

I'm really boared with myself and life, and don't know what to do , I shud goto work but i know i can't handle it , because i keep sleeping and going late to work that's what I expect to happen. and yes I sleep at work sometimes. I hate driving to work as well, takes me 45 min of very intense trafic, 1 way.

thats all, please give me your thoughts, please don't descrbe me as stupid I know I am, just can't help it.

*i'v bin better*

Hi Akram...Welcome back.

First of all, why are you worried about anyone describing you as stupid. You are not stupid, and no one here would describe you as that.

Second, you keep saying you are bored...what about a hobby of some sort? What do you like to do that could keep up your time, and make it so you are not so constnantly bored. I dont' know what you are into, so it's hard for me to give suggestions!

I think you really need to speak to a therapist about all the thoughts going on in your head. You certainly do need someone to talk to you. There is no question about that.

Coming here can help you too, as there are always friendly people ready to listen to a vent, and offer up some advice.

If you are sleeping so much, that is definatley a problem that needs looked into. I know you are saying you don't like doctors, no one does, but you are going to have to swallow your pride and go. Sleeping 48 straight hours is not normal.

Please, continue to post and get support here, and at the same time, look to your doctors for some help too. You can't do this alone!

Wishing you all the best.

Hi this is Kitt. Shorten up your wish list and make it about others not about you.  Get your mind thinking about how you can be productive and how good you will feel if you get back to work.

Please do not stop your meds.................not a good idea.

Hugs to you.

Hi Akram,

I am worried about you stopping your effexor cold turkey.  I don't think it is such a good idea.  I take effexor too and the abilify.  They work good for me.  But I stopped my effexor before cold turkey and it wasn't a good story.  So please have a doctor help you with that.

It sounds like you need a project or a challange.  It sounds like you got bored with your work, have you been looking for another job?  You should try to go to the gym.  Physical exercise is good for the mind and the body. 

You seem to know what it is that you need to do to get better, do you have any idea why you aren't doing them.  Alcohol makes people depressed, smoking deprives us of much needed oxygen.  That makes you tired. 

None of us do like doctors.. I get sick of going, but I have to.  I am a walking pharmacy too.  I get tired of filling the pill box every week and taking the pills every day but we have to in order to function.

You have taken a big step by telling us what is going on in your life, that means you want help.  We can be here for you whenever you need, but please see a doctor too.  And be careful with your medications.

Keep us posted.

thanks stkitt and getting by, I'm trying to stick to the medication, I have bin better and I want to get back to the way I was, and even better hopefully, things moving a little slow and I'm trying step by step. I'm trying at the moment to go out more, it makes me feel better more energy, even though i usually go alone because I don't have a strong connection with my friends at the moment. I keep telling myself I should contact my friends again ( haven't seen them in 6 months ; ; ).

thanks again your replies make me feel better already, about myself and what I'm trying to do :)
