OK, no exaggerations here, please. Many of you have helped me here before w/ the unbearable depression and anxiety that comes packing a whallop.(as Steve Irwin would have said....)
It's getting so bad, I feel psychotic -- no schiz stuff, but feeling out of my mind, wanting to go bezerk, feeling bezerk. I can't seem to get a grip on these feelings, not even w/ positive thinking or actions.
I had some driving around to do on Sat, all places in my area that I know. But I stayed confused and couldn't figure out which ways to go. I was outside of my body and my body was a blur. Kind of felt like I was having some of those partial temperal (or frontal?) lobe seizures, only the confusion would resolve within a few minutes.
I remained confused all day at work yesterday and lost hours, going back to find and fix my mistakes, which were out of left field.
I think I need a little FMLA. I can't take this crap anymore. And the people I work with only make things worse. I do not quite have 2 weeks of time off saved.
Would my best approach be going to the ER when I'm feeling the out of control depression/anxiety and psychotic feelings, even tho I have a psych who prescribes my antidepressants and xanax? This psyche is pretty looney, but he gives me my meds and that is all.
Or should I approach my LLMD who is nearly impossible to get into.
If I already HAD depression and some anxiety issues, but which did not worsen until my tick bite, is this depression something I need to get addressed at the ER or another Dr? I know that ER can't do anything, but they would connect me to a therapist who would decide if I needed a little FMLA -- a relative just did this and did intensive therapy and group therapy every day for about 2 weeks.
But she does not have Lyme. She had depression and anxiety issues that got out of control because of her job.
DOES ANYONE ELSE FEEL PSYCHOTIC?? Again, no exaggerations, please.
