Running out medication and can’t see doctor
I have been on citalopram about 4-5 months
Yesterday I take my last one , but I’m scared of the affect I may have I can’t go to doctor ...
So worried and scared of thinking
Phone the surgery and explain to them you’ve got none left
I can’t go out I’m scared
where do you live if you don’t mind me asking uk ..us ..phone the surgery at least and get the meds ordered so that’s the first thing ,then work out how to get them ...taxi?
Im from wyke, bradford
I understand what are you saying but I have difficulty to go out I think people will judge me and don’t like me it’s not easy!! And I have no money to get taxi
I understand,I know it’s not easy if you have no confidence in going out can you phone the pharmacy for a chat they can be very good and some will arrange delivery to your house you just explain to them you’ve no way to get them .have things improved for you since taking your meds
I don’t know if they are improving some days I feel okay but then I get frightened and anxious sometimes I feel like I have memory loss or confused
I found citalopram helped me ,and if some days your feeling ok that’s a good start eh ...better than 7 bad ones priority is to get more meds ordered and work out how to get them ..
I have sertraline 50mg they are stronger because my was 20mg but I take one of them now hope it’s won’t make me ill
Sertraline are ok too they helped me when I was bad best wishes.....don’t have too much coffee ☕️
He he already on my second coffee cup lol
Hi most chemists deliver these days so the first thing to do is ring up your surgery and try and speak to a doctor. Explain the problem and see what they can do. I am sure you are not the only person with this problem. Or have you got someone to pick them up for you?
Don't go cold turkey as you will suffer horrible withdrawal effects which will just make you feel worse.
Other people aren't judging you - you are judging yourself and putting it on to them. You are not so important to others that they are thinking about you, they are much too busy thinking about their own worries and concerns as you are. x
I appreciate and understand what people are saying and probably it’s true but I still got them feelings and problems, I have taken one of sertraline 50mg instead today but I will have to get my medication at some point!
I find most of the time people trying to push and push but as I said I can’t go out and I don’t think I can talk on phone to I’m not confident enough I have some low self esteem
Can you get a family member or friend to ring up for you? I know it's hard but the worst thing you can do is totally isolate yourself by staying indoors. You need to start taking some very small steps outside. Baby steps. So start off with opening your front door. Then follow up with going say 10 yards. Keep doing this and when you are ready push yourself a bit further and gradually the fear will lessen. It would also help to have someone with you if possible.
One of my sisters has battled with agoraphobia all her life and with help she managed to get herself out locally and for many years she managed it. However over the past 5 years or so she has given up and is now confined indoors. Please fight it. Feel the fear but do it anyway. x
even know where to start. My self esteem has never been this low in my entire life. I feel so insecure 24/7...
so sick of convincing myself this feeling won’t last long .. when really I’ve spent more of my life being...
I just can’t seem to get rid of this feeling that something terrible is about to happen. I’m so scared...
