Hard to Open

After pulling my crazy self into the doctor I have now been instructed to try a new cocktail of meds.

I’m a fan of meds.

But more the morphine, hallucinogenic, seeing unicorns and Jack Tripper kind.

Not the “you’re crazy” kind.

Also? The bottles are hard to open.

Some days I feel like I could barf up the ball of anxiety that sits in my throat.

Since depression and anxiety, two of the sneakiest bastards since PPD, have jumped out from my closet and wrapped their claws around my neck, I am back doing the medication mambo.

I have been referred for more intakes, psychiatrists, and doctors. Which in turn will mean more questions, prescriptions, and diagnosis.

I do not want to say out loud that there are days when I feel like I am going off the deep end.

Saying it out loud means it’s true.

Explaining it makes me look even crazier.

This makes me anxious.

And that makes me realize that maybe I do need to live in a pleasant state of prescribed happiness.

    I’m so with you. Heffalumps and Woozles are way more fun than Rorshacs and Ink Blots. Sending hugs and love. And pictures of pretty flowers that I still owe you. We’re in this together. I’m glad I know you.

    Pills are underrated. Really.
    I’m glad that you’re being a responsible patient. Unlike me who goes on a hypomanic bender and figured “Feck it. I’m going to have some fun” and then now I’m getting kicked in the taco meat.
    And I agree. Those pill bottle lids are a bitch sometimes. What if I had arthritis…then I’d be really screwed.
    Being crazy sucks eh?

    My friends and family yell at me when I say I’m crazy, or that I need to take my crazy pills, or go see my crazy Dr. They think its wrong or me just being “too hard on myself” But my wonderful husband to be who took the brunt of my crazy antics and rampages says “nope, your definitely crazy but I love you anyways” It helps! He’s on my side and “sorta” knows what I’m talking about when I say crazy!

      My hubs gets it too.
      He understands I’m crazy.
      That’s why he’s perfect for me.

    I hate admitting things out loud too, but when I do, somehow it makes it less scary. Do what you need to take care of yourself. We all have a unique battle with this stupid stuff. I’m so glad you are getting help though.

    I have trouble admitting things out loud too, but sometimes that’s just what we need to make it less scary. You deserve to be happy. Do what you need to to take care of yourself.

    Just read your blog to my Aunt and I want to say I love you. My Aunt says upon reading your blog to my Aunt, she feels that you have a multitude of talents that should be put into a book. Because of the rare ways she captures the essence of each topic she speaks about. She is currently reading David Goods Mood Therapy book, and says your writting is better than any damn dr’s. You should pursue your talents in writting because you are so wonderfully descriptive and you capture the reader.

      It means so much to me that you think so much of my writing and that you read it to your aunt.
      I am so flattered.
      I love you big time! xoxoxo

    Well throw them in a blender, add a few shots of your favorite drink, add some ice, pour in a glass, add a straw with some fresh fruit and you’ve got yourself a nice little drink. 😉

      I’ve been on meds for a VERY long time and I still struggle with it.
      I hope I get to the point where I’m okay with it some day

    My dear friend, know that you’re not alone in this journey. I know just how frustrating, lonely, insane, and bleak things could look like from where you’re standing now. Struggling with depression and anxiety after PPD, and having to take meds for it, could really make you feel like you’ve failed. I’m here to make sure that you don’t believe all those crap your mind sometimes tell you! There are others out here, your friends, who understand how you feel and are going through the same thing. Keep on fighting the good fight. Continue with the treatment and don’t settle until you find a good therapist/doctor. Life is precious and it’s not meant to be lived under the dark clouds of depression and anxiety. Love you, my friend!
