    I hate talking to people :cry: I can't stand it. I have a doctors appointment on Thursday, just a check up, to make sure that the meds are working but it's with my childhood doctor and I get really embarrassed (no idea why, she's seen me for everything!). Blahh. My plan requires the motivation to clean the entire house, so it almost certainly won't happen.
    Book an appointment with another doctor? Don't they normally have more than one at each practice?

    Like I said, decisions. One involves living like this until I get sorted... years in the future... and the other is more simple than that. Yep, still taking the meds, **** all good they're doing.
    Maybe years, maybe not. Let's say it takes 5 years (I'm not saying it will, in all likelihood it will be less, but this is looking at the worse side). That's a hell of a long time I know, but you're what, 20ish? so that would make you 25. I realize it's awful having your life ruined for one year not to mention over 5 but 25 is still pretty young. UK life expectancy of 80 gives you 55 years of being with friends, people you like, working, going out, doing whatever the **** you want. And that's a hell of a lot more than how long you'll be depressed for it's possible.

    Fluoxetine right? Can increase suicidality in young people. If you talk to a doctor, any doctor, they will understand and want to help you. It's not really the hard path, well...I guess it's kind of hard to keep trying but it's the path with the greatest reward. Things which are worth doing are usually hard.

    I struggle to understand the NHS, for the flu or some chicken pox they will treat it there and then but mental issues which have the possibility of killing you within days you have to wait weeks and weeks to see anyone. Nearly cost me my life that did.

    My dad at hospital yesterday had to wait 1.5 hours for his app they were running that far behind.

    Any other business who kept customers waiting 1.5 hours and didnt see them for weeks would be out of business quickly, but because we have no choice but to contribute to this communal pissing of money down the drain there is nothing you can do.

    You should have the option of contributing the tax for the NHS and being able to use it or not pay the tax and be able to use that money for private care.

    Citalopram. I've found a stash of co-codamol that I didn't know existed. I said I wouldn't go down the pills route but it's easiest.

    Thanks guys, you've all been great to me over the years. I love you all and I hope you can be stronger than I am... You all deserve happiness :hugs: :love: I know you'll find it one day. Bless you all.

    Even worse. SSRIs can cause an increase in suicidal behavior so talk to a doctor and they can switch you onto another antidepressant which may not have that effect. There are many.

    But it's free!!! :p: Yeah it's free if you and your family have no intention of ever working.

    Don't get me started on the NHS.

    Please don't.

    It's not right. Call NHS direct, or Samaritans or anyone just to talk to someone. Things can get better, if you do this they won't get better ever.

    Please dont go down the pills route, your body has defense systems that will get you vomiting them back up. Worst comes to worst unless you are taking stuff from a hospital your going to end up with organ faliure which will take days/weeks to die in a horrible way from your systems shutting down one by one and if you didnt you would end up on dialysis or something similar for years.

    Ring someone or go to hospital, things will get better :hugs:

    :hugs: What about those who love you? What about your father and the life you're going to have when you're better? You're only a very little while off the point where they start to really work - give them time, please. You are clearly a lovely and caring young woman, please don't think that things will never change, tehy are going to get better, you just have to let the meds work.

    Its your decision at the end of the day, but I wont just sit here as someone tries to throw there life with potential down the drain.

    Read what I put about pills, I found it out researching it myself, its really not a good way to go, even if it makes you go at all. And if it goes wrong, which is likely to happen.. you could be very ill for a long time.

    This is a very good point.

    Other methods are not exactly painless either. People think slitting your wrists is easy or fast or you just slip into unconsciousness and die......it's not.


    You do realize KMN that it could actually be the citalopram making you feel this way? It's a widely publicized side effect. I'm not against suicide when it's a free decision but if it's influenced/caused by effects of medication then no, it's certainly not a good idea. At the very least you should talk to your doctor/stop taking it so you have a clearer head. You wouldn't make huge decisions when you're drunk so why make the ultimate decision when you're possibly being affected by drugs?
