  1. I just saw a new psych doc, and I’m scared too that his first though was ECT. I guess i have to some research, read some posts and figure out if I can drive two hours into the city every other day for three weeks. Nothing is fair, but I chose to live outside the city so jow I have to deal with my own decision
  2. Dont go down the drinking route, you already know how hard sobering up is. Stay with us my friend, we will do oir best..... dont make me driive 15 hours to save your dog🧐
  3. St Patricks day was rarely mentioned when I lived in England. There were small celebrations in Ireland back then too, but nothing like on the scale of Canada and The USA. I think its probably deep down a yearning by all the suddenly Irish, to be part of the beautiful place that Ireland is remembering the roots type connections. Drinking to excess was never the plan, but like all events there are thise who want to push the limits. Let them be, I will sip a bottle of Guinness later maybe
  4. Lady Smurf, Scared of something in particular or just overthinking it like me? Whether you worry or not it will not change the fact that we care about you, and want you to be ok. hopeless, not much to add to that, as I lie in bed breathing in lemongrass scents from the difusser. I hope it lasts for a while, the difusser!

  6. Its very hard to believe in yourself. I suggest some of the TED talks or youtube guided meditation as starters
  7. No worries, hopefully the headache is either unrelated or it was a short term side effect of Cymbalta. Not sure if the DR can be split, ask the pharmacist or go to somewhere online, that details Rx meds. I think rx.com
  8. Welcome to the forum, speak freely and we are here to help you. No judgement, just some good old fashioned care about you and your situation. Maybe you did nothing wrong, maybe its just a perception from others and you are feeling sensitive. Nothing is ever entirely just our fault. Take some deep breaths and think about something else for 5 minutes
  9. Great news George, glad you are feeling good
  10. The lack of confidence in yourself, or low self esteem is part of depression and or social anxiety, and its why we withdraw from social gatherings, making it a vicious and downwards cycle. Try to convince yourself that you were invited and thus wanted. Don't let your brain guide you otherwise. Stop thinking about it, try some breathing exercises or YouTube something off topic
  11. Ask the pharmacist if the XR together with the regular 30mg Cymbalta is ok..... I know you can get headaches from too much serotonin kept in the brain, like if you work out really hard.... Also drink plenty of water with Cymbalta, I'm sure it reduces side effects, my personal opinion, not medically quantified
  12. Try taking it at night..... the most demotivation occurs then whilst you sleep. I only take 60mg now but was on 90 and no motivation was why I reduced. Switching to the evening is worth a shot
  13. I just wish I could reach out and make your day better sober......
  14. I managed to get to 50% dose on the benzos, staying there til I get some other stuff straight in my life, then will go CBD....
  15. I agree we will be helpful here. An online therapist is going to be hard to really get to know and trust, Im sure they do exist but it would be better to meet one they take it online I think. I get a lot of help from YouTube meditations and also TED talks. There are some interesting ones, just be careful to find one you like.... The voice or speed of the meditation makes a massive difference imho. Post away, talking something out anonomously really helped me develop my own answers...
