Can feel myself slipping into a depressive episode (once again)

It started yesterday, has been worse to day. Worse is to come - it always does.

It's really weird. Time just feels like it's slowed down, have no energy to do a thing, but still have to carry on like normal. I'm finding it really hard to put on a happy face, but alas I try my best but people still recognise that something is up - but I'd rather they wouldn't mention it and go away - but I also want them to know how I feel.

I literally just feel like dying right now. All these 'I's' make me feel like a bad person.

Only have one Mirtazapine left as I've run out and my doctors is useless and I can't get another prescription until the 16th (what great timing) - not that it worked anyway. Not that any of the medication I've been on has worked, or the CBT.

I'm not sure what to do next? I've only ever been to my GP - thinking maybe it's time to ask for a referral to a specialist.

if u stop mirtazapine suddenly it will cause distressing psychological symptoms. u need to go to the dr and INSIST on seeing him as you are out of meds and depressed and anxious. Please don't just leave it.

I could go to the walk in centre nearby (done this before), but I'll be waiting ages and they're only allowed to give a week's worth of medication, so I'd have to do it twice costing like £16 which I don't have!

They wasn't working for me anyway, but I think if I start getting withdrawal effect's I'll ring up the doctor straight away.

I thought my meds weren't working til I weaned off to try a new one and I was horrifically overwhelmed and ended up off work sick cause i felt so low. You may feel they're not helping but see your gp to discuss it! I got a prepay card as I was given 2 weeks meds at a time and it was getting expensive but a prepay card for 3 months works out at about same as 3scripts which may help? Espesh if you're on more then one type of tablet :)

I would make an emergency appointment to go and get some. Go and make a nuisance of yourself.

Mirt is horrible to withdraw from, from my experience and mine was a gradual withdrawal.

How long have you been taking them for and what dose?

...you speak of reality... like it's a bad thing.

and you are well aware of anti di -pressants

you are a narcissist...

you failed to mention why you chose to blame your shame on yourself...
and your family is really to blame on you...

and you can blame them on you

that you cannot make sense on your selfish failure to be awesome!..

try and decide why you continue to hurt yourself for their failure to really care for you
