  • What's it all about?

    by Karin Donnelly on 16 February 2009

    Well I'm fed up!  Not sure how else I can say it without ranting!!

    Doctor decided to change my meds again so I am on yet another Anti-Depressant.  Think so far I have been on Fluoxetine, Dosulepin, Citalopram, Venlafaxine, Duloxetine and now Paroxetine!!  There may even be one that I have forgotten to list, who knows I have stopped counting now.  Oh as well as Propranolol on and off!  I am getting bored now of changing, I just want a tablet that works and makes me feel "normal".

    My local Community Mental Health Team won't touch me, they said that my appearance is too good and I had great eye contact with them!  Never mind the fact that I have had ongoing depression for over 10 years and have yet to find a medication that works for me.

    I went to my psychotherapy assessment, infact I had 2 of them and they had said that they will now place me on the waiting list but the waiting list is 12 - 18 months long.  So they have now opened a huge can of emotional worms which I am struggling to deal with and I now have to wait at least a year to talk about it properly again.  Agggghhhhh

    What's it all about?
