Feeling like you're in a dark place is an awful feeling, but there really is a light at the end of the tunnel. I'm currently in a tough situation, but am trying to remind myself there is a light at the end of that tunnel and that things will get better. It may take a little time, but it will get better. There will be another tomorrow, you just have to believe that and that you will see tomorrow and the one after and so on.
I agree that it maybe time for your doc to re-evaluate your meds. Are you in therapy? If not, would you be willing to do this? I think therapy would be good for you as this would be a person who you could say anything to and be able to get these things off your chest. A therapist would also be able to work with you on these problems and help you to get to a point that you feel the problems are resolved.
Also, there are some Relaxation Techniques you can use and you may want to consider using an online program for a technique called CBT. This is a program that has you learn to change your realize what your negative thoughts are and to change them to be more positive. Many members here use this program as it works well - I don't know about anyone else, but I really didn't realize just how many negative thoughts I have/had about myself. I will try to find the thread on this program for you and bring it up to the top so that you can check it out if you wish to. I will do the same thing with the Relaxation Techniques thread.
Please keep us posted on how you are doing of if there is anything we can do to help you.
P.S. I've found the CBT thread for you and brouoght it back to the top for you. The thread for the Relaxation Techniques is already on this first page about 10 threads down. There are some good techniques that you may want to try.
