i am recovering from an operation my 4th actually on my abdomen i am in so much agony my mood has slipped and concerntration is really bad i am on no anti depressants because i am sensitive to quite alot of them last week i called the crisis team and they basically said they couldnt help me unless i took the tablets that made my aniexty sky high. i am on my own today have no sleep in weeks finding it hard to concerntrate or even go for a walk as i feel like im drunk all the time. i have thoughts of killing myself and none of the mental health team are listening i find it hard to leave the house now and am a prisoner of my mind and body pain as well as two slipped discs. any advice as i dont know how im gonna get thru today on my own.

I was taken off my anxiety tabs too cos it was making my migraines worse than ever and also making me more depressed. Now I am off work due to anxiety and paranoia.
I have an appointment with doc next week. Seems to me its such a trial and error with the meds from personal experience and from what other people have said on here.
I'm sorry for you that you have post op issues to cope with too, it must be awful. Can you not take stronger tabs than paracetamol for the pain? Also, don't rule out some breathing excercises, you'll find some good ones on the web for relaxation that you can do with little movement.
Best of luck :)
