I'm taking Effexor and Klonopin, but have never talked to a psychologist. I have an appointment for tomorrow... will it really make a difference in how I feel? If not, maybe I need to switch medicine... I just don't know anymore. I seriously have no motivation to live.

<FONT]I have edited a section out of your post in line with Rule #1 (http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=46&m=106997) We do have to be careful as we have minors using the site and there are legal issues as well. Darren

I edited your subject title as it did fall into rule #1 of our site: and we do have alot of minors that visit us.
1. No discussion of any illegal activity or threats of violence. (ie. illicit drug use, including medical marijuana use, threats of suicide or self-injury, or threatened or intended physical harm). Discussions of suicide or self-harm that are deemed negative and therefore potentially injurious to others are also not permitted.

Obinder, I have felt this very feeling b4 in my life as a teen and in between also. When I have these feelings, I talk w/ a trusted freind or even do self talk. No one should have to go thru life w/ feeling like this alone. Yes, sometimes one med doesn't work for another's chemestry so be open w/ ur doc. Take care. Kota

WOW....I feel like your in my head.  I'm on the exact same meds.  I've been on them for 4 years, most of the time I've been okay...just recently with the b/f troubles I've been really down.
I don't have any advice for you regarding your therapist.  I'm on #3, I really like her but she's too expensive right now so I've put it on hold.
I will tell you this, be prepared for things to get a little worse. With all 3 of mine I'd come home feeling great and interested in what I've learned about myself and before the next weeks session I'd be more depressed.
good luck....and just breathe
Reason for edit:
I have edited the quote at the top of your post to bring it in line with the original. Somehow I missed this when I was editing the original, hence the delay. Darren

Hi there,

I am so sorry that you feel this way... have you spoken to anyone about it? Perhaps your family or a doctor? If you dont feel that you can talk to them, then perhaps one of these helpline numbers will be of some use for you:

National Suicide Helpline (United States): 1-800-784-2433

The Samaritans (United Kingdom): 08457 90 90 90

Please keep talking to us. There are loads of people here who will understand how you feel.


Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.

How long have you been taking your current med? I would let the doctor know what you are feeling and let them help you.
Think about your family and your friends,ones that need you in their lives.

Please update us on your appointment,we will be here for you.

i understand what you say. most of the time, i feel no desire to live anymore either. that passion just died for me. i dont take meds, though i probably should, but i find comfort in this website as my main support system, and i also see a psychologist once every two weeks. believe me, it makes a difference. im assuming you already had your appt, and if you feel comfortable with this person i strongly suggest you continue to go. once your relationship grows with them, you will find it much easier to express your feeling especially with this person. best of luck.

I remember feeling that way before, but with the help of medications and a good therapist, I feel a lot better now. Things can get better, let us know how your therapy went.

You are in our thoughts and prayers
