I went to the doctor and she agreed that I should have medication to help with the way I’ve been feeling. Because I have Cystic Fibrosis I am on 20+ medications, one of them being a certain antibiotic that I am on every other month, (I’m on antibiotics 24/7, if not I will get fevers within two days), I can’t take any anti depression meds. Apparently, that one drug doesn’t mix well with literally any of the anti depressants on the market. Just my luck. Of course, I can’t stop taking that antibiotic because it is one of the very few (two to be exact) that actually work for me. I am screwed. SO, of course, things aren’t any better and I have no idea what to do next. Therapy I feel like isn’t working, but I’m still going regardless. I’ve been going to the gym so much that I feel like my legs are going to fall off. I read somewhere that going to the gym is supposed to help with getting happy. If someone out there has an suggestions please comment. Help a girl out.
Tomorrow I go to a family doctor to talk about what kind of meds to get on. I’m nervous and kind of scared honestly. I’ve never had to be on any kind of medication for depression/anxiety before and I’m still on the fence about it. The only thing that is making me do it is knowing it is best for me and the people around me. I don’t want to keep feeling this way anymore. Whatever medication they decide to put me on, I hope it works. I’m afraid that it will do more damage than good. I also don’t like the thought of myself going to a doctor I’ve never met and telling her everything, but I have to.
I’ve been off the IVs for a while and my PFTS (lung function) didn’t go up that much, I’m not where I should be. I can tell though, I’m still coughing more than usual, but no fevers so I can’t complain. In case you’re wondering I still haven’t gone to see a doctor about getting on meds. I’m not sure why, it’ll probably help, but I don’t know I just don’t want to. I have an appointment next week so we’ll see. I probably will end up doing something because nothing else is helping. I’m back at my childhood house watching my dads dog and it’s really hard being here. The weather isn’t great and there’s nothing to do except to be alone with your thoughts. If you’re like me, that’s scary. It’s hard being here because my mom died in this house in the room next to where I am sitting. Being here, especially alone, is a constant reminder of what is no longer. It should be me and her going to the beach or spending way too much money while my step dad is off for work. But it’s not. It’s just me with my psychotic thoughts in a house with a lot of opportunities to act on those thoughts. My birthday is in a few days, the big 2-1, and I hate that I feel this way. I probably won’t go out, I just want to go back to my apartment and not have to deal with anybody. The one thing I hate about coming back to my hometown is seeing everyone I know and the people here stress me out. I can’t handle it. Only a few more days and I’m out of here. I hope.
A week ago I started feeling awful (CF wise) so I just started IV antibiotics last night, hopefully, I will start feeling better soon. I’m doing them at home for two weeks. I had a fever today and was drenched in sweat as I was talking with my therapist. Disgusting, I know. The CF walk is Saturday so I should start feeling better by then. I am so tired and it’s only day one of IVs. Mentally I’m still the same. I think I will be going on meds for this at some point. I was going to before, but then I got sick. When I get feeling better I am going to the health center to try something, maybe it will help. We will see.
I’m still having those thoughts. Shocking. It’s not going to get better. Apparently, it could be biological. I have all the reasons in the world to feel this way; my CF, my mom is dead, school sucks, etc etc. When I feel sad or have thoughts of ending it I don’t think of any of those things. I could be walking around campus and the thoughts creep up on me. Maybe it is biological, my genetics are fucked anyways so it wouldn’t surprise me. My therapist suggested medication. I don’t like that idea, but maybe it’s necessary. On top of all of this, me and my relationship problems aren’t getting better. I thought we were supposed to be a team, but it’s clear we’re not. He wants to go back home every weekend and I don’t. It stresses me out and I don’t need it. He doesn’t even ask me if I want to go home he just says he’s going and asks if I’m coming with him or not. Either way is a lose-lose situation for me. I go home and stress myself out or I stay in my apartment alone. Alone with my thoughts. My thoughts that consist of taking a handful of pills or taking my car and wrecking it into a tree, praying that will do the trick. I often daydreaming about jumping off a cliff or my funeral. I feel insane. Like I’m losing myself, my mind. I don’t know what to do anymore, about anything.
Yesterday was the closest I’ve ever been to calling it quits. I can’t explain what all I’m feeling. When I try to explain to my boyfriend what is going on in my head, it doesn’t make sense. Of course it doesn’t make sense to someone else when I can’t even make sense of it. I am lost and numb. I don’t care anymore, about anything. I don’t know how I can keep living like this, being miserable every day. I see no point anymore. I’m sorry if you’re reading this and it’s bringing you down when you googled something completely different and uplifting, but this is where I can put all my thoughts out there; without ever having to be embarrassed by what people may think. I don’t know what to do anymore. Therapy isn’t helping, nothing’s helping.
I’ve been seeing someone and I don’t think it’s been that helpful…yet. I’m still going, I’m not giving up. My boyfriend has moved in, the job interview out of state, he went to, but they never called him back. I should be happy that he’s living with me now, but I’m not. I’m still feeling down and having thoughts of potentially hurting myself. Not only that, I just don’t know about my relationship with my boyfriend anymore. Is he living here because it’s convenient? Or is he here because he wants to be? I don’t want to be someone’s backup plan, I want to be their first choice. I feel like I’m never gonna be happy again, I haven’t felt legitimately happy in what seems like forever.
Everything is falling apart. I decided about a week ago to start seeing someone. I told him everything that has happened to me within the past year and it seemed that it might be too much for him. You know that’s when you’ve had it rough is when a therapist is distraught about your problems. I went last Wednesday and my boyfriend decided to tell me on Friday that after having this plan of us living together for a year might be coming to an end. He decided to apply for a job five hours away. I’m stuck with a year lease on an apartment having to pay rent all on my own if he gets the job. He didn’t discuss it with me first either. He applied, scheduled an interview, and booked a hotel for tomorrow. I don’t think I’ve never been so hurt in my life, betrayed even. I told him everything I’ve been going through, even having thoughts of hurting myself and then he does this at a time when I need him the most.
Things like this make me question everything. Why am I in school, why am I wasting my time, why am I even here, alive? What’s the point if every time something remotely good happens I got slapped in the face ten times harder? I give up.
Things haven’t gotten any better. I’ve been crying a lot and at times just want to give up on everything. My boyfriend is moving in with me in two weeks and that’s the only thing that is keeping me sane. I recently scheduled an appointment with a therapist this Wednesday. I am desperately hoping this will help. I need motivation again, even to get out of bed…
So I have anxiety. It blows. It’s gotten worse since I started college. I’ve been at my new school for a month and haven’t made any friends. I think most of my anxiety is social. I feel socially awkward and now I just feel lonely all the time. Do you ever feel like everyone is in on some joke that you’re left out on? Like everyone’s staring at you or talking about you or whatever those people are laughing at, it has to be about you. My boyfriend of three years lives about two hours away and sees me every weekend. When I’m with him I feel happy and my mind is at ease; however, when he leaves it’s a different story. I cry and beg him to stay even though I know he has to go to school too. Without him, I’m lost and alone. It scares me to think how much I have been relying on him for my mental sanity. I used to be a very independent person, but now I don’t know. It’s like I need him with me to feel okay, to feel sane.
