I've fallen

Nov 11, 2015 9:36 PM

I'm so far into my depression right now I can't see my way out. I've fought so hard to keep it down but I'm so tired of fighting. I'm so lost and exhausted. I stood in the shower for an hour and cried and turned the water to the hottest it could go just to numb my pain. I go see therapist next week and Idk if I'm gonna make it. I started lexapro a couple of days ago after stopping Cymbalta and I'm not sure if I'm coming or going. I'm tired of being in so much pain that my husband has to put my socks on for me. I'm tired of feeling so alone, so damn alone. I'm tired of crying. It's getting harder to go about each day. I'm not suicidal.. I'm just tired. So tired

Laysha, I am sorry that you are feeling so bad. Hang in there. I am here for you as is the other members of our pain family. Believe me, I inderstand where you are at as I have been there many times before. If you are at the end of your rope, here, hold onto mine. I'm here to hold your hand, give you {{{Hugs}}} or whatever you need to get through. I know how hard it is. Things will get better. Coming off the Cymbalta and just starting the Lexapro isn't helping you any. That is messing with your system and it takes time to correct itself. If you feel you can't wait to see the therapist, call the office tomorrow and tell them that you are in dyer straights and that you need to get in right away and explain how you are feeling. You are never alone. I k ow it feels lonely and I've been there too but you're not. We are all here for you. Please, please, please, hang in there and try to get some much needed rest. Sending you gentle {{{Hugs}}} and prayers that you feel better and can get some much needed sleep. Remember, we are here for you to lean on. We are here to talk to you, we are here to hold your hand. You can do this, I promise. You have more strength than you think you do and you can draw strength from us. Tomorrow will be a better day. {{{Hugs}}}πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

So sorry for you, I felt like that Sunday. I stayed in the shower and cried too. I hate hurting and I hate feeling this way. Sending you prayers and hugs...

Laysha, I'm so sorry you're overwhelmed. Did they take you off the cymbalta all at once? If so you're likely having withdrawal symptoms, and its like the lowest I've ever been; I wanted to die (but not really). Look up cymbalta withdrawals on drugs.com and see if it's what you're feeling. Hang in there, but notify your doctor immediately. Withdrawals are no joke, they can be as dangerous as allergic reactions. Sending you (((hugs))) of support, and praying God will help you through this! We're all here for you too. πŸ™πŸŒΌ
