Do you ever feel as if you cant even roll outta bed? have a shower or even speak? I do...almost every day. I first realised something wasnt rite about 4 or 5 years ago, and since then it hasnt gotten betta. I dont know why it is that im here or what i need 2 do. I feel so useless all the time and spend all day in my pjs, thats if i havent slept all day. the doctors tell me i have panic attacks, depression and i may even have bi-polar, but i dont know coz i dont have a regular doctor. im on medication but i feel as if it makes me more tired and i couldnt be bothered doing anything. My mother also thinks i have an eating disorder coz i have lost over 40kgs in the past year, i live back at home with my mum now. Ive lost everything and feel as if  im useless........i live in a small town where i cant find help. What do i do before i cant handle it anymore??? sad
I cant have a regular doctor because of where i live. There is a hospital but doctors are always different because they cant find a doctor willing to live here. Therefore I can get my perscription filled for my medication but thats about all. I believe there is something wrong with me. my medication is eflexor-xr 75mg twice a day and i have been taking it since december last year. And as if my life isnt bad enough at the moment one of my pets passed away and ive had him for 6 years and at times he was the only reason i was alive. So i feel very empty at the moment, it took me 6 hours just to get the box he was in into the ground and covered. sad

First of all, welcome to healingwell Candice. You are among friends here. And we are all here to support you.

You might need a medication adjustment. So you should have one doctor deal with your depression and anxiety. Also you might want to get a medical check up to make sure that there isn't anything else going on. Though it sounds like depression to me. You need something to give you energy during the day. There are so many different AD's out there that if you let your doctor know what is going on, they could find the right one for you.

Also therapy helps a lot. Do you have a therapist? If not, your doctor could probably recommend one to you. What type of AD's do you take. There may be others on here who had the same problem with that particular AD.

Best wishes to you.

Hugs, Karen

Dear Candice,

I really hope you will see a doctor about the continued depression and fatigue, and especially the weight loss. 40 kgs (almost 90 lbs, for those of you not on metric) is a lot of weight to lose in a year, even if you are a very heavy person. Please get help with this…..you say you have consulted with doctors but don’t have a regular doctor….but I think you need to see a mental health professional right away, as well as having a thorough physical checkup. I know how hard it is to keep trying when you are feeling depressed and exhausted, but there is help out there for you, Candice, and I really want you to feel better and get healthy. Please come back and let us know how you are doing.
