  1. Thanks for all the replies, everyone. I appreciate it. I do suffer from anxiety, Pat. It's pretty bad right now.
  2. It's not exactly the same as what you're facing but: I'm 27 and my parents have lived in this house my entire life (we recently moved back in with them). I love this house and have ALWAYS been afraid of them selling it. Now it looks like they will be, after we move out again, since they don't need the space. It hurts so bad. I'm so sorry you all are going through this. I hope that you're able to find peace.
  3. I've had this to a degree for several years, but for the past few weeks it has become very bad. I'm not able to remember much of what I did even earlier in the week or day. The only way I can think to describe it is I can remember the facts of what happened but I can't remember the feelings or have much memory of it. I feel like my head is in a cloud and my head feels heavy. My neck is sore. I started on an antidepressant about a week ago so I'm waiting for it to work, if it works. Does anyone have any experience with this or have any tips on how to get rid of it?
  4. Thank you so much for responding, Tim. I see my dr. on Monday. I wrote down a few sentences, as suggested.
  5. I posted here about a year ago. Since then I have had 2 psychotic episodes and have been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. My mood was fine during the psychosis. After this last episode passed (about 3 weeks) my mood has shifted. I am anxious and I don't know what to do with myself. I'm worried about something happening to my children, constantly. I am having suicidal ideation (no plans), can't eat until well into the afternoon, sleep is messed up. I DO NOT want to wake up and have to get through yet another day. I can't stand thinking of taking a shower because it requires so much energy (though I always shower anyway). I'm just dreading life. Do I need to tell my dr.? I don't know wheather to tell him, because we just got my meds adjusted to help the psychosis. I'm so lost right now and have always gotten some direction from this forum before.
  6. My depression is getting seriously bad. It started getting worse in early September and had steadily gotten even worse. I'm sleeping as much as I can get away with and the household chores are all falling on my husband and parents (we live with them). Everyone is getting irritated with me, even my kids. I'm trying so hard to push myself but I can't do it anymore. I'm so tired. How do I respond when I'm told I have to get up and make myself do these things? I just can't. I'm in treatment... meds and therapy.
  7. A main symptom of my depression is lack of motivation and energy. So a lot of times I don't do the things that need to be done on time. My utility bill is always late and I have payment arrangements made with the hospital and I skip payments sometimes, not because I don't have the money, but because I put it off. Does anyone else have this problem?
  8. Thanks everyone. Yes, I have a tdoc and pdoc. I will ask them about this.
  9. I've had depression since my teens (I'm 26 now) and it's steadily gotten worse as I've aged. I fit the criteria for dysthymia, except dysthymia is considered "mild". Mine is not. I have a hard time functioning at all and can't work. Is there such a thing as chronic, persistant depression that isn't just mild?
  10. Hi. I had ECT when I was 21, back in 2007. It didn't help me, so I'm not sure about the maintenence treatments. I did have memory problems. I feel like I lost several months of my life.
  11. I'm sorry you're feeling so bad. I can really relate to a couple of things you posted. I also have a hard time in therapy. I can't seem to move the conversation along. I feel like my therapist should get impatient with me but she never does. I hate going places after a certain time, too. Really I hate going anywhere alone. I hope you keep going to therapy. It really can help.
  12. My mom tells me I need to try harder a lot. It really hurts, because I am trying. She tells me I don't interact with my kids enough which is very disheartening. I wish I could offer a constructive way to respond, but I usually respond with anger and sadness.
  13. My therapist told me that she is thinking about referring me to someone else (to take her place). She says she doesn't see me making much progress and she thinks we need to do something different. Is she just giving up on me?
  14. I just told my therapist yesterday that I hated coming into therapy and telling the same old story everytime. It's always about how bad I feel and how awful things are going for me.
  15. I agree with Denninmi: lots of questions. If he/she is a good dr., they will make you feel comfortable, so don't be nervous. Congratulations on making the appt. That's a huge step.
