Exclamation Randomly want to, medicine works as much as poop - January 25th 2009, 06:52 PM

Yeah, i randomly want to cut for no reason, I just end up REALLY wanting to, like now. I want to cut on my arm again..... I just cut 3 days ago.... stupid razor. I just want to cut my arm again!!!!!! UGGGHHHH I WANT TO SO BADLY!!!!!!

Well, anyways I have to take Prozac, and since they upped it by 10 miligrams or whatever the unit it is that it is measured in, I have been doing a LOT worse than I have been in a long time cause I randomly feel like crud(or insert the S word or C word, cause thats what I think in my head) and I have been wanting to cut and have been cutting more than....
......
......
oh wait, that's just been since I gave up trying not to...I gave up back in October... its too hard to stop cause it just adds to the disappointment, it really does for me... so it's easier to not try...

Any advice?

I told my therapist about the randomly feeling horrible on Friday, and she's going to talk to the doctor so she knows about it...I go to see the doctor thursday so i will probably change meds this time, or at least that's what I think....

I understand the feeling completely.
The best thing I've found to do is listen to music (any music, really, as long as it's louder than my head ) and go surf the web. Or lurk on some forum. Or write. Anything to distract myself.
It doesn't always work, but even when it doesn't, it's still better than going off and cutting on the spur of the moment. It's more controlled and I do less damage.
Anyway, good luck with the doc, and i hope this helped a bit!

Hey-

How much research have you done on prozac? Sometimes, medicine can make you worse if the doctor who prescribed this to you, didn't give you enough information, or places to get the information, I'd speak to another person about the medicine. Though you should be thoroughly doing your research on your own, the doctor should have made this easy to do.

If it's making you want to cut more, then it's not good, and it shouldn't be a matter of changing the dosage, but changing what you're taking. Though I am not a professional, this is just from experience.

Speak up for what you need. Tell people how you're feeling, if it's making you suicidal, makes you want to self harm more and so forth.

You'll get through this. Good luck!
Maria.

Well, I want to cut again... nothing seems to help... no offense to anyone at all but I find that the alternatives are stupid for me cause i can't truly play an INSTRUMENT in the SHOWER.... I wasn't given any info on the med, just that its an antidepressent and anxiety reducer thing.... I am going on Thursday, and I hope something new helps I hate randomly feeling horrible and no one knows that I am suicidal, no one in real life anyways... I am scared to tell anyone....I want to tell my best friend cause I know he won't not be my friend, but I can't seem to find a way to tell him.... can't really invite him over, never think to call in time...and it can only be on a Sunday cause he is Jewish and observes Sabbath.... Life sucks right now....

Any ideas on how to tell him? A note maybe so then he could call me and then we could talk? I don't want him to see me cry... he never has seen me cry uncontrollably, only like one or two tears.... I am so scared I feel so horrible....

Ugh still want to trying not to now as I type this. I went to the doctor today, the dosage for the med was lowered and a new med, some mood stabilizer, was added to help with that... just thought I would let you all know...
