Hi again,

Been for an assessment this morning...again....I thought that's what happened yesterday. I have been give citalopram 40mgs. They have said I am grieving and seem to be following the grieving process and that in time I will feel better. Combined with having a chronic illness obviously everything became too much. I think they were worried about my mental state and what I was going to do, which is why the crisis team was called.

Do any of you know about the crisis team?

I feel better today and less lost (if you know what I mean) I want to find that positive me again. I am going for a walk as we have lots of sunshine here.

Take care

Dee :hugs:

Hi Dee,

Glad to hear you are feeling brighter today :) You will find that positive you I promise, just be kind to yourself whilst you are waiting . I've been on the citalopram for 18 months now and find that it does help - I no longer spend 24/7 crying and wishing the world would just swallow me up. I will say that it may make you feel a little sickly initially, but stick with it as this soon passes.

Good luck for the future hun - now go on, get out in that sunshine before it disappears again :) :)

HI Dee
Glad to hear you are feeling better today, the sun does help. :D

Good luck with citalopram, it did not work for me but everything is worth trying.

Enjoy your walk. :wave:

hi Lisa. I have given in to a low dose of Amitriptyline this week but mostly I help myself by following the 12 step programme as set out by the Melody Beattie books. I go to groups about it for a different reason but find the steps really help.
It sounds like something you might find interesting because it deals with feeling our own feelings and keeping the focus on ourselves instead of runnings around after everyone all the time.
I can't say I'm always very good at it but it helps to know that when life is unmanageable it is because I have lost the focus on my own needs and started obsessing over other people again. I fell into this programme by accident really but i'm finding it helps in all aspects of my life really. I think its about knowing I have choices.

If you want to know more pm me. I don't want people to think I'm pushing anything or trying to sell it.

Its not a cure of any description. Just a philosophy I suppose. A self help thing.
Not everyone cup of tea though

IDDM - Any form of self help can be a good thing, don't worry as to whether you think it may not help everyone - nothing helps everyone - but I think with a condition such as fm it is necessary to try to help ourselves in all areas as much as possible.
I'm glad you find that it helps you. :)

I am feeling less depressed and a little more in control now...but that citalopram has knocked me out and I cannot stop sleeping. Thankfully I have not had any plans this week, otherwise they would not be happening.

I will be having some counselling for a while although not to sure when it will start. That should help. I have found that in the day...apart from when asleep..I can be a little more positive and back to my old self, but it's the evenings and nights when the kids are in bed and OH is out working that it all comes back. The sadness, and feeling so alone seem to take hold for a while. That I do not like. Feel I do not know what to do with myself. I'm a little like that now.

It will get better I'm sure. I too agree that self help is a good thing, although not always easy :?

Have some Christmas activities planned so that should help. We are going to Winter wonderland in hyde park in a couple of weeks, so hopefully that should be fun.

Lisa how are you doing?

Thank you again

lad to hear that you are feeling more positive - the sleepiness from the citalopram will wear off in time, yet the positive effect seems to remain. :)

Bookworm, I already feel a little less sleepy today...she says with a huge yawn..Looking forward to the positive effects remaining as the nights are little tough. It's all looking good though.

Lisa, glad you are feeling better as well. Strange about ALL the low moods last week, I know some people believe that changes in mood is all to to with the moon, but thats beyond me. However there could be something in that, or we were all just a moody bunch :lol:

Thoroughly enjoy your weekend, whatever kind of weekend it is, partying, relaxing, live it to the full. :)

Good luck with your GP. Maybe it's long term therapy such as pychodynamic therapy you need and not short bursts. Just a thought. My friend has been going for sometime now and is beginning to see the benefits. She's been going weekly for around three months and it is just continuing for as long as she needs it.

I am off now with the kids to meet some friends.

Hugs to both of you :hugs: :hugs:
