Don't know what to do anymore... - January 27th 2010, 10:44 PM

Well, I'll start from the very beginning.
Last week I took an overdose, 2 days later I was rushed to hospital being sick up blood etc. I was in for 5 days, thankfully I was very very lucky and am going to make a full recovery. Trouble is I've done so much damage to my liver I can't take any medications atm, so I'm off all my anti depressants, which has totally ruined my sleeping pattern, and I'm worried I'm going to get more depressed again, they were the only thing that were keeping me going. Also I'm really tired (not like sleepy, more achy, can't stand up long or do much) so now I'm stuck at home all the time and thats really not helping.
My therapist is drivng me mental, shes really patronising and always asks me really complicated questions that I just don't understand, I spend half the sessions asking her to explain herself! But then I hate my other therapist because he asked me if I had really been raped the other day and I feel so betrayed... I have to see him tomorrow and I really don't know what to say because I just don't want to see him ever again. They have basically also said they don't think I need inpatient care (which is GREAT because I really can't bare to put my life on hold and I hated it last time I was there, was badly bullied) but they said theres no day hospitals in the area, no groups, and social services aren't interested. So I'm just getting an extra therapy session a week, and I don't really like either of them, but I also don't want to switch because I've had people I REALLY hated in the past. Its such a mess... I don't want to end up back in hospital again or doing something bad but no one wants to help me... I'm stuck .

Talk to your parents or therapist and tell them it's not working, if they don't help, they aren't doing what they are there for. I once learned that there is a positive to everything (although it may seem impossible to find) but if you can't find anything then just remember how lucky you are to be alive and how lucky you are to not have to stay in hospital .

If talking to a therapist doesn't work, try talking to other people, like close friends and if you don't feel you can talk to them, maybe talk to people on here there are people who want to help

If you ever feel like doing something that you know you shouldn't, then just talk to someone about how your feeling, and ask yourself why your doing it and is there any point?

I hope this helps

Dancing Lou said well. I just have to add this : begin making your life good too. Enjoy your life. Talking to someone will very much help. But one major thing you have to do is to make the effort to reconstruct your life. If those therapists aren't helping then it makes no sense to look to them for help. But give them some more time and see what happens. But start enjoying your life and getting healthy both mentally and physically.
