Anxiety girl 84
- Oct 9, 2020
Hi there, I'm new on here, I'm struggling to cope and could really do with other people who understand and don't get frustrated at me. Support and understanding
My g.p rings me weekly and has over prescribed vallium , I am really struggling, he just says we will wait for the team to contact you this has been going on for so long. Corona is effecting me due to uncertainty, I like to be in control since being unwell.
Iapt counselling won't help me because my prescription makes me high risk
The psychiatrist just shut up shop
My GP just throws more drugs at me.
I won't do anything, i don't think I want too but I sit here thinking why us all this happening do I really want to keep this up forever.
I'm so tired and exhausted of fighting my own thoughts.
Thanks for being kind x
Hello and thank you.
My GP has been great but very quick to prescribe. I'm on an extremely large amount of vallium and will have to do a withdrawal program. I don't buy them I'm prescribed.
I rang last week after a severe panic attack and they said they'd chase them again I received a letter there's a 14 week wait list minimum. But iv been waiting two years to see someone after seeing an emergency psychiatrist at that point I was desperate to the point I couldn't take anymore.
The counsellor does a risk assessment and because I'm classed as addicted to diazepam (vallium) they don't deal with that I need a bit of extra help. Two weeks of these drugs has turned into two but I can't be without them aswell as propranolol and venaflaxine (which I don't like) I dont see any of it as helping me anymore. I shouldn't be feeling like this , a black cloud over my head and falling down a giant hole all in one
Yes I was under the impression it would be two to four weeks to control my panic attacks.
I'm very reliant they are to me as routine as my thyroid medication.
No, no withdrawal program has begun, I feel I'm in limbo , I started at 2mg 3times a day I'm now on 30 to 40 mg a day split throughout the day. Iv tried withdrawal, it's horrible, I do need extra help.
But I'm getting no help for my spiraling depression or worsening anxiety , which has been slipping for about 6 weeks but iv got to the point where I'm concerned
