I understand I need to give the meds time to begin to work, not like painkillers that take 30-60 minutes. Still don't understand why 2-4 weeks or whatever I read.

Everything has been tranquil with no serious lows despite the females in my life looking to make problems. All felt ok, we can cope and get to when we're supposed to be feeling better, until yesterday. Lost, empty, don't know what I'm doing half the time, last night I literally don't remember anything shortly after taking my pills.

Due to see doctor on 28th, might see if available to see me this evening instead.

You still working the long hours??
Females in your life making problems? Never heard of that before....

I abandoned/canceled a large project at 90% done to save my sanity. Now I owe my client 13g. Was getting fkd from two directions at once and washed my hands of the whole ordeal. So now only have one job and a nice clean house instead of working 12 hours today and living in filth because I didnt have the time to clean. Watch those pills. They cost money for a reason. :)

I'm sure it's not the best kept secret in the world over those women...

Good going on sorting that mess out. I just wish I had a job where I don't need to think, don't have to take anything home with me - 15 years ago I had it and earned more money than now.

Legal drugs must be the best money-making business in the world, even more than corrupt governments down here. I'll keep feeding their pockets for now...

Keep well my friend.

I think that meds can help but in my experience it is a case of finding the right one that suits you (as I have tried a few a couple worked but the side effects were no good for me)
also, I think they only really work properly if you also work them with a therapy too. The meds can take the edge off the pressures but if you dont release the stresses and start to eliminate or change your mind state then the issues are still dragging at you, but if you can learn to push them or deal with them then the meds will help more.

Thank you Lilyfrog.

To be honest I don't have any experience with different medications. I know it is a case of trying perhaps different ones and balances also, but after my first tries now with medications I am seeing a positive difference in general, except for a big lapse a week ago which was truly difficult to handle.

I understand with the therapy, I just can't do it with people that are trained psychologists or therapists, they all seem to be coming from a book, the same formulas and responses that I have to do this or that. I just need the basics of someone listening (and it's obvious when they are not), and basic words of understanding - this is what I have chosen very carefully a few persons that know my full diagnosis. My partner can never be one of them.

The biggest problem for me is that my stresses are things beyond my control, they are certain people, one that is looking to do me harm (ex) and one that doesn't understand at all (partner).

As I can't control them, I try to limit the interactions. I am more interested to know how medications can give me a balance and peace to continue. I made it to 37 without help somehow, but am hoping to make it further now with help. This site is helping me cope too, with distractions and also helping others where possible.

Sometimes nothing can help when the worst times hit its a case of trying to stand tall and beat it. Hope the lapse has passed or eased for you

I totally get you with the therapy and in a previous post you wrote on my post I was in total understanding with you, Someone that steps outside the box to help is the biggest help but they are hard to find as the training like you said is against a text book.

hope you are well

I think you have more experience in a number of parts of this than I do (I hope this doesn't get taken down, but to be honest, I have been suicidal 4-5 times and serious a few of them without quite getting to doing things). The medications those days last week made me emotionless with a desire to do something, scary without being scary.

The good for me is that I know understand almost all completely on the personal basis. It's the medications I don't understand. My psychiatrist said for Oct 02 for an appointment, I haven't made it yet because I need to do other things first to help my son (and try to get/trick his mother to help somehow).

The best way to learn is too often the hardest way. I know from your experiences too you will likely understand this, and hope you are keeping well with your current situations.
