  • Yeah, it sound slike the meds have messed you up a bit there, and it will feel like you have taken a huge step back after all your progress. But bear it in mind that your feelings will settle down again once the meds are back on track.

    I am quite scared to come off my meds - in case I feel as anxious and uptight as I did before and I will lose all of the confidence I have built.

    I think you will feel better in the next few days. It was bad timing as well with your mum and sister not being well. But bad things seem to happen all at once - it's a mystery of the universe - bad things altogether when we feel like we can't cope. But there's always light at the end of the tunnel (your light is that the meds were working and you can hope for them to work again).

  • Thanks for your reply im the same as you i hate missing tablets as its can cause problems ! It just shows you its important to keep on top of yout meds ! Thanks agsin (david)

  • Hello David, it's lovely to hear from you. I'm sorry that you've taken a bit of a dip and more sorry that it seems to have been a result of your doctors being less than efficient. My Mum has also been in hospital so I understand how you're feeling there. Lets hope that you start to pick back up again soon x
