- DX FIBRO
I am at my wit's end. I don't know where to turn anymore. I am feeling so depressed all of the time. My doctor has tried me on at least 6 different depression medications, Cymbalta, Effexor, Fetzima and so on and so forth. None of them seem to work. I get more and more depressed by the day. The doctor says "be patient it takes awhile for the medication to work". But it never does seem to work. So on to the next drug. Be patient, no luck, so on to the next drug. In the meantime I am going crazy. I snap at everybody, I cry all the time. I am not suicidal but I don't want to live anymore. That doesn't even make sense to me let alone anyone else. I just want to be left alone with my pain and sadness but I know I won't get any better that way. I want to see a psychiatrist but apparently there are none in my area who will take me as a patient. Believe me, I checked. It's either I'm not taking any new patients or I only do children and teens or I don't take your insurance. I live near a town of 117,000 people and can't find one person who will help me. I just want some peace. I have fibro, chronic fatigue syndrome, obstructive sleep apnea, degenerative disc disorder, pinched nerves in my neck and back and I just had a total shoulder replacement. I am 60 years old and can not for see another 20 years of living like this. Anyone out there have any thoughts on what could help me? Thanks for listening.
