Hello, I am shanel 21yo from singapore.
Have been suffering from depression and anxiety for almost a year now.
It all started 2 months after I gave birth to my son last year.
It was post natal depression and a little bit of anxiety so I took anti depressant for 8 months and finally came off it on dec 2013.
Anxiety became worse one month after stopping medications which is jan 2014.
How can my life be this bad? ):
I was just feeling all happy and good that I don't have to take medications anymore and panic attack have to hit me..
After giving birth, I haven't been able to head out and enjoy myself fully thanks to all the panic attack.
My husband loved me lesser because I couldn't overcome my fear of the panic attack. We have been quarreling a lot too ):
I couldn't play nor take care of my son myself.
Can't do anything at all.
Like a paralyzed person just lying on bed.
I know I should have helped myself but with 2 months of constant panic attack (5-6 times a day), the fear of it became so strong that I can't..
Tried overdosing for the first time few weeks back and woke up to my crying parents and my son who wasn't aware of anything, smiled upon seeing me. It was such a foolish act of impulse. I swear I will never do it again so I am looking online to see which works best but it seems like it all depends on individually (><)
I am now waiting for 12th march for my appointment with the psychiatrist again.
When I was hospitalize, they gave me chlorpromazine hcl 25mg 3 times a day and mirtazapine orodispersible 15mg every night. It works fine when I was in the hospital. But it no longer works after I came home. I was all anxious again.
Doc told me to take chlorpromazine when necessary but since it didn't work, I didn't.
I still take mirtazapine every night but it seems to stop working 3 days back.. No longer makes me sleepy anymore. Does this happen to anyone here too? Should I increase my dosage?
I am thinking of requesting the doc to do a ECT for me.. I want to forget those fear.. Even tho it depends on individual, I am willing to try anything that can erase my memory so that I can lead a normal life again. Anyone have experience in this too?
Would really appreciate all replies. 😊
