Hey guys. Im in a very deep depression mode for now and it is just horrible. I feel very, very depressed and dont know know where it came from. Some of yall know that I have extended chronic pain fom surgeries on my neck and back within the past years and Im also a prescription drug addict with each feeding off each other. I just turned 48 and really dont feel like going on much longer. Everybody tells you to get over it- Iknow a way to do that. Would love to hear from someone.
jaws86 responded:
Good night all. I wonder what the night holds.

Hey jaws,

Sending you a hug from the left coast. I'm sorry you are in pain today. Whoever invented the phrase "get over it" should be fired.

I just had a birthday too...are you a Libra? I've found that I gravitate towares the October birthday babies....

Jaws glad to see you're still fighting, way to go. Keep it up, I know it's got to be one of the hardest things you have ever done, but you're doing. Really happy for you.
Haylen_WebMD_Staff responded:
Please check back in Jaws! I hope your weekend was less difficult...

jaws86 replied to Haylen_WebMD_Staff's response:
It was a very difficult time, the first hard time since I went to treatment several months ago. Literally, I either slept too much or I cried. I have a disability hearing in 2 months and Ive already felt like I have lost the case. I overtook the number of pain pills twice bot wasnt even enough to get mee a buzz. Maybe if I stop for awhile and then start back with taking too much, maybe then can I feel better.
deasertrose replied to jaws86's response:
Jaws, don't do that. It's not good for you. I take alot of pills, sometime I don't take them for days and when I do I take a sleep aid at night along with my sleeping pill. I want to take acouple of days at once but I haven't yet but I want too. I'll keep you in my thoughts during this diffecult time.
Lots of hugs!!!!

Hi Jaws
Please don't go back down that route, you have done so well to fight the urges over the past couple of months, you have it in you to keep going.
Use all your support networks available to you

I really have tried to fight these addictions and now have to find another counselor since my previous one worked out of state.Hopeful!
Haylen_WebMD_Staff replied to jaws86's response:
Hopeful is good -

How are you going to find another counselor? (personal recommendation, through your insurance, etc.)

I encourage you to meet with two or more so you find the right fit!

jaws86 responded:
I dont think I can make it anymore.
