Hi guys, I'm here. Sorry for making you worry, but thanks for caring. I did post after 11 on Sunday. It was on the Fran & Kate thread, but I'll copy it to here:
On a personal note, I survived the day! Only had to excuse myself to splash cold water on my face twice. Had one moment where they noticed my hand shaking. Then had a full panic attack with my Dad in his car. I actually think this is a good thing. Maybe it will drive home the fact that I'm actually sick, not just slacking off. Told my Dad about the suicidal thoughts & images. Told him I may end up in the hospital this week. It went ok, but I was so nervous I hugged my nephew hello & said "Happy Birthday" to him. It's not his birthday, that's in February. I played it off as I only see you about once a year so I might as well tell it to you now. When I hugged my step brother good bye, I said "How ya doing?". That sounds normal right? lol
Saw my med manager today & we're changing anti depressants. Still pretty nasty in my head, but have succeeded in keeping it there, for the most part. I see my Therapist tomorrow, we'll see how that goes.
Sorry Kate, I haven't kept up with things because I've been avoiding triggering posts, but I am glad you survived a difficult day and I hope the change in your meds is helpful for you. Hang in there! (((Kate)))
HEY KATE TE I'M GLAD YOU'RE OK. I DON'T KNOW WHY I DIDN'T SEE THIS EARLIER? DUH ON MY PART BUT THANK YOU FOR RECHECKING IN AND LETTING US KNOW WHATS HAPPENIN. I THINK ALL THATS HAPPENED YOU DID A REALLY GOOD JOB HOLDING IT TOGETHER AND I'M GLAD YOU WERE ABLE TO TALK TO YOUR DAD. IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT (I THINK), WELL I HAVE SOME STUFF TO TAKE CARE OF SO OFF I GO. SEE YA'L;L TOMORROW
