Thread: Hi, I知 new!

  1. #11
    I was supposed to get some antidepressants that didn’t affect eye pressure and I brought them home and looked on the paperwork with the tablets and it said in the side effects that they can cause pressure in the eyes, so I rang them back and said I couldn’t take them. I struggled for months and took, I think magnesium myself (possibly a placebo affect as I thought they helped) I was getting panic attacks as I’d witnessed my cat being hit and killed by a car. A year on and I have now gone into a bad depression. I still see the accident, but not as often and also it has a knock on effect of thinking about my deceased father who died at 50 and several other people who have died that I’ve been close to.

    I think this time of the year is difficult for lots and lots of people. The nights are long and dark and mostly raining and cold. Christmas makes me especially think of those who have passed before us and that makes me sad. What if they were still around? What advice would they give us now? How would our lives be different if we had their guidance?
    I'm also sad as another year comes to an end, and what is different now, compared to last year?
    But I also try to look on the brighter side. Once the 21st of December has passed, the evenings start to get brighter, there are endless possibilities with the new year stretching ahead, and the Christmas lights are still up, with their twinkling multicolours.
    It's difficult but there is hope. Please don't give up.

    Hi and welcome. It痴 not the same, I know, but I have swollen optic nerves due to excess fluid on my brain, and I知 on 2 anti depressants and a mood stabiliser. There really are a lot of ADs available and all work differently so is it worth talking to a specialist (if you haven稚 already) to see if there痴 any way you can be helped? As you suffer from anxiety, maybe helping to treat that could help you overall itms?
    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    Have you had grief counselling to help you work through that?
    Please always remember that I am always right. I have a framed certificate to prove it.

    When in doubt, stop and think... WWSS? (What Would Suzi Say?)

    Thank you everyone for your replies, I appreciate you all. I will certainly look into it again regarding antidepressants to help with my mood Paula, sorry you are going through that, and Suzi I haven’t had grief counselling. I can’t understand some of the people in my life who say “it was only a cat” I have been through hell because of the way my precious cat was killed and he was like my baby. I do have a son too and I don’t really know why it has affected me so much, but it has and I’ve never been so affected by flashbacks before to this degree, playing over and over in my mind that I kept and get now still. It just hits me out of the blue! I feel I was at a low ebb prior to it, so I think this played a big part!

    It sounds as if you've had lots of things that have happened which have built up trauma after trauma. Have you ever had talking therapy to help you through any of it? How old is your son?

    Loosing a pet is always traumatic more so if you see them knocked down, my cat Jenny was knocked down outside my house, I didn't see it but it still saddens me after all these years even though she was an old cat (about 20) the loss was still as great.
