I went to the doctor today. Could hardly talk.
He has put me on some tablets which i am very nervous about taking and refered me to a Pysc. Makes me sound totally mad ! Feel worse now..... than ever. He game a telephone number of a help line if I feel desperate.
Not sure if this all will help at all ??!!

fluoxetine is an anti depressant also known as Prozac. I think most people get put on prozac first and see how it works for them. I know that when i was 14 i was put on 20mg of liquid fluoxetine and it made me feel great until my PTSD kicked in. then i was on the tablets and then it got raised to 30mg and then to 40, and i was taking that as well as a nasty anti psychotic. I had a bad experiance with prozac. but it was good at first and every person reacts diffrently to tablets.
First of all your not mad. so stop saying it. Im pretty sure everyone here is on some kind of medication or seeing a psychotherapist, councellor, psychologist, Gp .. and so on. The medication is there to help and it will help. you need to keep taking the perscribed dose daily and let your body get used to it. Fluoxitine is apparently the anti D with the least side effects and it is perscribed to children and adolescents under 16 because it is generally approved. I was stuck with prozac until i was 16. It was annoying though because being on an antipsychotic called rispiridone meant that i had to be careful with what i could take.
I know i was refused diazepam and sevral other tablets because of that nasty med.
But you will get better

Spoke to police yesterday and solicitor. Case been presented to CPS so just have to wait. Police keep saying if the cps decide to prosicute.I am terrified ...!!! My solicitor seems quite relaxed about it all. Keeps saying "try not to worry" and call him if I get summonds ??!! I know I did'nt do anything but I still feel sure I will go to court and be found guilty. They are asking me to remember 4 yrs ago !!!! I forget where I am driving too or why I went upstairs never mind 4 yrs. Then my voice keeps saying what if I did steel some money and I have forgotten ??!!
Forcing myself to eat a little and have taken tablet.
Suicide never far from my thoughts.....
Can I survive this life ??
