  • Thanks Steve. I have always been an feeling, emotional person. I’ve had a crazy life – even battling cancer twice. I am trying to plan ahead, of course money is the biggest holdout. I do read some self-help books, but some are just mired down in minutiae. And many more say “just do this” but never tell you HOW to do it. Just be happy – okay, tell me how!

  • Thank you. I have been delving into meditation which has helped a bit. I am in a very small town so thee is little in support groups, etc. (Cancer, of course, and addictions, but little in mental health.) We have on psychiatrist in the area who works for our community center – and I am currently on the waiting list. Relaionships are screwed – my ex who has a chronic disease for over 18 years and is a catalyst for a lot of my problems, and the guy I like who has “friendzoned” me. I just feel utterly broken

  • I asked my physician about the Lorazepam because I knew it was only for short term use and he said to just use it when I need it – well I need it all the time in the situation I am in. I have been on Paxil so long it stopped working years ago I know but he doesn’t want to switch. I see a Psychiatrist in May (soonest I could get in) and I hope he changes things around

  • I am trying to get SSD for mental disorders. I have been diagnosed as Borderline Personality Disorder, Dependent Personality Disorder, severely depressed and Deep Anxiety. There are no meds that can help Borderline Personality Disorder. And I am on Paxil and Lorazepam for depression and anxiety. I have had my SS Evaluation and am waiting to hear. Without SSD or SSDI I can not afford to live and will be stuck living with my ex-husband (who is a catalyst in all this) forever. Does anyone know what are the chances of approval may be?
