Haven;t been in for a while alot of things going on right now. Mmmm not sure were to start.  Feeling a bit down, cannot stop shaking, jumpy, back pain but that nothing new over did on house work this week, kids fighting, money issues, episodes of crying almost daily. Tired most od the day and nap most of the day away. I trying to practise relaxation breathing etc, stomach had been upset don;t feel like eating etc, and mild flashbacks of things of the past are bothering me a bit to but i have a supportive husband that i talk to about some of things, when i see my pysch doc and tell him stuff he always wants to increase or adjust my meds. Not sure if ready to handle another increase anyway that's whats happening and my vent. I sometimes feel like going to the hospital and admitting myself for a few days but not sure what that will do either, thanks to anyone who posts a reply talk to ya soon Twiggy2

Hi Twiggy, it is good to see you posting again :-)   sometimes it does help just to vent alittle.  I dont sounds like you have a lot of things going on, and a lot of stressors in your life.  You mentioned issues from the past bothering you and having flashbacks...that sounds a lot like post traumatic stress disorder.  Have you ever been told that you may have this?  I have this same issue myself and it is so hard to deal with there isnt any medication to make it go away or any better.  Counseling and learning how to face and deal with those past issues is the key to making PTSD manageable for those that have it.  It in no way is easy but I imagine that whatever you survived so long ago has made you a stronger person weither you realize it or not and you would be able to deal with those issues in your own time.
I dont know what meds your taking or how long you have been on them but if your having shaking and crying episodes then it would be a good idea to let your doctor know this.  You could always tell him that your leary of an med adjustment.
Please do keep posting and letting us know how your doing...we are always here for you.

Life can sure pile up on us. I know that it certainally has for me. I just try and face one day at a time. I know it is cliche' but it really helps me rather than allowing the undaunting thought of getting through all I need to do over the next few weeks to overwhelm me. Good luck and hang in there.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.

Sounds like a bit of a setback to me Twiggy..and the good news is that you cannot go back to square one coz you have already been there done that :-) Upping your meds a little will uplift your mood so you can cope with what is going on around you just now..have a little faith in will be ok!
Take good care.
