Jenn,

Have you spoken to doc about a med change? I recently had one for depression and it has really helped. It took about three weeks or so
but I am glad I changed.💖💞

perhaps calling your doctor, for an appointment to go over how the new medication regimen is working and to talk over sorting out you feelings/thoughts about what keeps returning back to your mind.. PTSD is very difficult to handle without a professional.. and being bi-polar makes things worse.. So please call you therapist...for your own sake and that of your ktties.

Jenn,

There are many places with professionals that you can call and have an online meeting with at no cost
and also phone meetings with. Please consider this before your therapist gets back. :hugs:

Yes, but any qualified professional will take an urgent appointment.. I would definitely consider this an urgent situation. Try calling.. Friends are good, for support; but sometimes you really need an objective person-- a qualified counselor who knows your medical and emotional history and can see through things to help.. and someone who can decide if this new medication is 'right' for you.

If you are feeling depressed, there is no reason to NOT talk to a professional. You have your own team of doctors/therapists-- so use them.. call or email them for an appointment.. no need to suffer.

well i am slowly coming to terms with my grandma's death , i still wish that i had had more time with her but im over 1,000 miles away from my family and i cant just pick up and travel very much . i was very close to her and she was like a mom to me when my mom just up and left me with her parents . i was about 7 or so when they adopted me and im grateful for what they taught me growing up but i resent my mom for leaving me behind still .

hi everyone , as you know my name is Jenn and I am 49 years old and a devoted cat lady.
i was born in jasper texas on april 1st 1973 and later went to live with my grandparents at a early age of about 5 years old . my mom left me behind and didnt explain why until i was roughly in my later 20's . i have been married 3 times in my lifetime and divorced 2 times . i have had to deal with abusive men most of my life and nearly died with the first husband . the second one let his mom walk all over me so i left him too .

i am merely just thinking about a scenario where i would have to find a new place to live and handle life alone ... not something that i would enjoy though. i appreciate all of you and consider us all close friends too
