    I want my life back!

Posted 24 August 2014 - 11:41 AM

Kathy, here's a question harking back to your doctor's suggestion that you go into the hospital for a few days ... and also connected I suppose to the meds and how you're doing in general ... what does your husband think, what does he want you to do? did he think it would help for you to spend a few days in hospital?

 

I know it was an excellent thing for Wagtail to do ... she got the "cocoon" treatment she needed .... and a stable med regimen ... If I'd had insurance back when I was the sickest, I would have gone to the hospital in a "New York minute" ! :P

Hi FiveNotions, My husband doesn't think I should go into the hospital. He thinks that the withdrawal will pass and that my doctor will find the right meds for my depression and anxiety. Of course with the way I'm feeling I'm not as optimistic as he is. Are you a New York girl too? Even though I live in Pa, I was born and spent most of my life in New York!

Hi Fishinghat, I'm on 20 mgs of Prozac, I've been on it for about 2 weeks. I really hope it helps me.
