  1. I feel numb and stressed, all wrapped into one. I feel like the meds I have been taking has made life a lot more difficult and I lost my ability to use DBT skills, at least at the moment it seems that way. My doc constantly brings up admission and at this point it feels like a threat. I appreciate the extra help I am getting, or should I say: The constant checking in on me. But it is so overwhelming. The nurse who rang today again brought up how the doc wants to admit me. I am upset, I can't be this much of burden to my family. Is there ever a right time to get admitted?
  2. Omg I can imagine that must have been a nightmare to explain. That's one of my biggest fears, whenever I end up in hospital, being questioned about stuff like that! To the OP: Since being on Lamictal I have insane vivid nightmares. Or I don't sleep. There is no in between. I only recently started back on them after a break due to financial reasons and instantly the dreaming came back. I am dreading once I go to the higher dose , as from experience I know the dreams get worse and sometimes I can't tell the difference if I was dreaming something or not, which is quite disturbing. Sometimes the same dreams return for me, too. The only reason I stay on them is because I know they work for me, the downside really is some of the side effects Also, I am sorry for your loss
  3. I definitely want to express what he has done for me over the years. I got very lucky. I don't think the FaceTime thing will be an option, we are completely wrapping up. He is retiring, I think his brain needs space from all of his patients Which is totally understandable. I was going to write a letter, as well. But on the day itself of the final appointment, I want to make the most of it and it not being about my struggles or current issues, but really like @Nightjar mentioned, use the time to express my gratitude Thank you for your input so far, much appreciated!
  4. Hi all, I know this might have a better place somewhere else on the forum, but I can't think of a better to place for my question to get an answer. So here goes. My therapist of 10 years is retiring. I will miss his existence with every fiber of my being. I have one appointment left.. a few weeks from now. If you were in my shoes, what would you ask before you never ever see him again?
  5. I thought I'd feel better if I was completely honest with my psychiatrist. Turns out, it didn't make me feel better. But at least I was honest.
  6. I have Wednesday on my mind. I have an appointment with my doc, as I need to go back on meds. I have mixed feelings, but I know it's the right thing. What's more on my mind is if I will have the guts to tell him the truth.
  7. Life is Strange 2, waiting for the final episode now.
