I’m on antidepressants and it’s been 5 days that I went cold turkey bc I don’t have money to go buy my pills. My medical aid doesn’t want to cover it. I feel like I’m going to lose my sanity!!!!
The skid, DH, parents, BM, ILs everyone is driving me crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I feel like I’m going to give up on everything and I don’t care what the consequences are.
I know I need to go get my pills but I’ll get them as soon as I get paid.

Why do we need pills to cope, to except our decision in marring a man with children? To cope in life’s challenges?

Sorry for the stupid post but DH don’t understand what I’m going through. Sometimes I feel so alone on this planet and now it’s even worse than before I got on my anti depro pills.
:? Sad :sick:

You are not alone **Hugs*** I don't know a whole lot about antidepression medication - but how about working out? Walk, yoga, treadmill, gym, YMCA, swimming, or whatever is available to you? The only personal experience I have is when my first marriage was ending I was spiraling into depression. I walked 3 miles I charted out a route around my town that was 3 miles. Takes a little less than an hour. Then followed that up every day with some stretching. Not only did I lose 40 pounds, it was the only thing I looked foward to all day and the only thing that kept me from losing my sanity. It was MINE.

I don't know if that helps or not, but it helped me a lot.

I know a lot of people say they can't fit that into their schedule. I really couldn't either, but I MADE it a priority and everyone else JUST HAD TO DEAL WITH IT. After a little while it became part of daily life and no one batted an eye.

I hope you feel better soon and keep coming here to vent whenever you need to!

You are not alone I recently went through this and am just starting to get back to normal once I got back on my meds. Anything to keep busy is helpful especially exercise and a healthy diet(ice will never hurt though). Just know that you are not alone
