Wow, that su.cks! Thanks for sharing so you don't have to deal alone! Have you told your doctor that the meds made it worse? That would be a good idea to do. I'm sorry you feel so badly about seeing your dad, hon. *hugs* You don't have to see him very much, right?
They usually take somewhere around two weeks to actually start working properly, but doctors recommend that you stay on the one type of drug for one month to see if there's any improvement just in case it takes longer than that. Unfortunately it's pretty common for people to feel worse when they first start taking the meds up until it actually starts to work. Please keep taking them despite this. A lot of people stop the course when they notice this because they don't realise that they need time to start working. You should also always make sure to tell your doctor what's going on. If you plan on stopping a medication, wait until after you've seen your doctor and explained to them why, because they will tell you the best thing to do from there. Stopping some drugs suddenly, particularly antidepressants like the one you are on, can have disastrous consequences.
I'm sorry to hear about your father. That must have been difficult for you.
I've been so über busy lately! I've been meaning to get back on here and reply, but I just haven't had the time or energy to do so. Blahhhh! Okay, so anyways, I'm doing pretty good. Paul (remember him?) and I have had some issues again lately, but it's fine. We are officially over now. (I know I've told y'all that before, but you get the worst of my venting sometimes.)I went through this horrid phase of depression about a month or so ago. I was cutting, having suicidal thoughts, being stupid and reckless, refusing to eat, didn't care about hardly anything, all that stuff. I'm over it now. I don't know what clicked in my head, but something did. I just get into little moods with it now. That's so much better than before though.
That's good that you're back to more normal now! *hugs Kate* Glad to see you again, even if you don't post so often. It's okay. C:
My younger brother is really irritating lately. I mean, more irritating than a little brother should be. For example, just now I sneezed and he goes, "Geez Rayyn!" (Except with my real name.) and he does it for pretty much everything I do. Like what I wear and what I say and, like I said, when I sneeze. It's not only annoying, but it makes me feel terrible! X(
How old is he?
He's twelve. Is that old enough to know better? I thought it was.
That's the same age as my sister. She does the same thing to me. She gets into phases with it.
Oh so maybe it's normal. :/ idk I wish he'd just realize that it actually really hurts me. I tell him it's annoying, but he seems to like being annoying. Like seriously, one time I told him he was being annoying and he said thanks.
Younger siblings do that kind of thing. I know it's frustrating though, especially more so when something gets done that really hurts/upsets you. My advice would be to try and think of it as a phase. He should grow out of it in time. I know it's hard to brush things off like this and if you still feel upset by it, feel free to talk to us on here :) We'll listen.
All right. Thanks you guys. C:
Um when I used to cut at first it was just to reliave my stress but then it became an addiction for me at all times of the day I wanted to cut I wanted to feel the pain I wanted to see myself bleed.
tears i understand cuz before i found this website and this thread & the support thread but its getting bettr still havent told my mom about yet and tht kills me because i used to tell her everything............. she hasnt even noticed the scarrs it kinda hurts because she used to notice when i was upset or when i was hiding something from her now it feels like she dont care enough to look deeper than my fake sunny smiles................ before when i would say "Im okay" or "Im fine" she would pull me into her room, shut the door, and make me talk to her.......................
tears we r here for u any time you need us, even me even though i am not the best at giving advice but i will ALWAYS listen so feel free to talk
well I think Zech and I just broke up. maybe even for good this time.
