Thanks, sorry about your dad too . It's a lot to deal with. PM me any time, I would like that.
Just wanted to drop in and offer some moral support. I can relate to a dad being diagnosed with cancer, and losing a loved one. Hard to believe it has already been over 11 years.
Anxiety is through the roof. Late to work because I had to turn around and check all the doors in my house.
Pain in my chest, both arms. Not feeling great today.
that's the worst I hope it calms down soon.
See my pysch meds dr today. I'm gonna see if I can switch meds or add something or anything that will maybe help me. I hate changing meds but I'm starting to get dangerously depressed again. fingers crossed I'll find something that works on the first try.
I went to see my med doctor. Told her everything that's been going on with me, that I can't even leave the house to check my mail, I can't go grocery shopping on my own, etc. I don't know anything about controlled substances, but apparently I've tried just about everything that isn't one so now she's gonna have me to try gabapentin. I have to take a drug test first. I'm nervous about starting it because I have zero tolerance for meds and almost everything knocks me on my ass, and I can't do that with kiddo. Hopefully my mom will be able to take kiddo for the first night I try it, and...idk what I'm going to do if it does knock me out. So here's to hoping it doesn't.
Idk if it's ok to post this here with the name of what I'm on? Idk, I just wanted to see if anyone else is on it and how they reacted to it or if it helps. I'm pretty nervous because of the 'controlled substance' label.
I can't remember if I mentioned mine or not; I would say it's alright as long as we don't try to glorify a particular drug, since what's good for one person might be awful for another (which isn't what you're doing).
Oh yeah, I'm totally not trying to do that. I was super surprised the med dr even said she wanted to try it, because I've heard at this office it's nearly impossible to get a controlled substance. Do you mind me asking if you've been on it, and if you had a lot of problems with fatigue when you first started it?
sorry, i meant i never mentioned my depression/anxiety medication, just wanted to give my input on the topic in general. Unless I'm misunderstanding, I've never taken a controlled substance
Whoops, my bad lol.
Unless it's a special rule for your state, gabapentin isn't controlled so getting it, logistically, should be about the same as most meds. Pregabalin (basically its parent) is a controlled substance.
It's a special rule in my state :/ people were using it in heroin.
Yikes. Kentucky? I guess that would answer why a schedule V(your state) is being described as nearly impossible to get.But that's pretty dumb to say lol, in general CV should still have a lower barrier wise compared to benzos or opioids.
yup. And I don't know about elsewhere in KY, just the office I go to is where it's hard to get (from what I've heard).
i wasn't on it for terribly long, but gabapentin made me sleeepy af. but we used it for that intentionally as I was having insomnia. I also went through a round of trazadone to knock me out as well.
i was messaging with a friend and couldn't figure out the anxiety.
it's because i am trying to date again and men are starting to make me feel unlovable because i don't want to procreate. it's very isolating and makes me feel lonely and hopeless.
damn, that's exactly what I'm worried about. I was prescribed trazadone once and I slept for about 18 hours, no exaggeration. It was awful.
Find men who don't. It's a good choice to not have kids if you don't want too. Anyone who makes you feel that way for your personal preferences should get a kick out the door. Lonely and hopeless is pretty normal, heck girl that can even happen in a relationship. It's good when people show you who they are right away, so you don't waste any time with them if they aren't right
oh i know, it just seems to happen over and over and over. You've not been around for it, but my ex of 5.5 years and who i was set to marry last fall left me 6months before the wedding because of his unhappiness with himself but also he says because i didn't change my mind about wanting children. Definitely a sore spot for me, and I didn't realize how many men want kids. Most of my close female friends (about 5) are being pressured by their spouses to have kids or have kids sooner than they want. I thought it was odd since the stereotype is that it's always women hounding men about it.
That is VERY odd- truly kids, pregnancy etc is not easy. Sometimes it seems like we get the opposite in life. Life is just not easy sometimes. All I can say is I can identify with such feelings, not for the same reasons. Sometimes all anyone can do is sit in the darkness with you and you know that others are also going through hard things. It seems to be hard to find a good partner honestly that truly loves and cares. I am sorry that happened and I have had my fair share of men who do things that are shocking and how much it can really mess you up inside when a loved one does such things.
