Hi everyone,I've been to the docs this morning regarding how low I've been feeling. She has told me to raise my amytriptiline dose from 25 mg to 50mg and then up to 75 mg in a weeks time. If this doesn't work then she is going to change the duloxetine that I'm on. She also mentioned that if this doesn't work then I may need to see a psychiatrist as I've been up and down since I had my daughter 16 years ago. But to be honest how is a psychiatrist going to change my life circumstances? All the things that have happened throughout my life that has led me to where I am today let alone living with fibromyalgia? Is there a pill to make all this better? Really? All this is really worrying me as I'm currently doing a counselling course which I'm hoping is going to really help me but it is very very hard to cope with and probably another reason I'm feeling so dead inside,a lot has come up for me already which I knew it would. I guess my mind and body is shutting down because dealing with the feelings is just too much. So where does that leave me with the course? I don't want to give it up and there are a lovely group of people I'm studying with,very very supportive and caring and have also been through their own crap in varying levels. I have never been surrounded by such amazing people in the whole of my life! But if the course is going to cause me to become very depressed that's not good either? Or is that quite normal do you think? I know a few people on here have studied counselling too. Any feedback would be welcome.
