Finally after battling intrusive suicidal thoughts, with my mum and husband's intervention my psychiatrist appointment got fast tracked. I saw the psychiatrist today and diagnosed with acute anxiety and depression which i already knew since June. Scared of this episode, if the new meds don't work in next 7 days I will need to go into hospital as an inpatient which i've agreed to rather than co tinted deteriorating and end up acting on thoughts due to sleep deprivation and depression. He's prescribed 25mg quetiapine morning 50mg quetiapine lunch and 100-125mg night and told to expect to feel out of it and stay in bed watching TV if need be. They think my sleep hormones are out if sync in my brain so prescribed me 7 day supply of expensive melatonin tablets 2mg to get sleep as the amount of sleep I am managing to get at night is diminishing rapidly. During my last major depressive episodes sleep deprivation insomnia has been one of my relapse indicators. Home treatment team crisis is coming to visit for next 7 days. If they feel I'm continuing to go downhill will arrange to find me an inpatient bed. I'm told its work related stress exhaustion induced depression. He also said if needed to stay in bed. I am scared, my mum and husband have been told to look after the kids to give me a chance to recover. Anyone ever had something like this? How do you stop thinking to give neds chance to kick in and recover?
