Hi
I have had a bad turn again. I came off my medication a year ago, and suffered a period of dissociation but got through it. Been through a lot of change, broke up with person I was seeing. Sounds odd but we didn’t know each other for long but thought I had met my soulmate. Work has changed a lot and I have been struggling with it. Have been really down the last 2 months But now started feeling dissociated and disconnected again as well as sometimes sucidal. Don’t want to go back on meds. What do I do feel low

Hi,
I'm sorry you've been feeling suicidal, please get professional help as you need support.
Have you ever tried any therapy, it can be very effective?
Hope you feel better soon.
These links might help you and others feeling the same.

Do you mind if I ask why you stopped taking medication? My symptoms worsen when I am off medication. I function much better taking it. I know we are all different.

I wonder if something triggered you a couple of months back. I think if it were me I would speak to my GP aswell as working through/taking action against the causes of all my troubles...

I experience the same thing - feel okay for a while - then the downward spiral until it’s so dark I can’t see light and all I think about is suicide. I am hoping that consistent exercise will help me and I am trying new meds. I think the one thing that has always helped me is taking care of myself by exercise and eating right - very hard to do when I’m depressed. I hope this turns around for you - we are in this together
