Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hello Debs Thanks for asking after me. venlafaxine is working up to a point. I have motivation to meditate, send messages, and reduce other medication. Anxiety still there. My wife's salary is low. I try to ask a different friend or relative for financial assistance each time. £150 is 2 months of me...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hello Debs Another thing which came to mind and taken from Claire Weekes. Our illness is not an illness of how we feel but how we think. That's why we need to try and change our way of thinking. Say "So what" to What if ... thoughts. Mock the negative thoughts rather than try and struggle ...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hello Debs I just thought of something that might help which you mentioned before. Have you thought of asking a GP for referral to a psychiatrist and another course of CBT. You'll probably be told there's a long waiting list but it might give you a bit more hope, something to look forward to and add...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hi Deb's You don't need to compare yourself to me or anyone else. Your anxiety is real and it's causing you agony. You have the classic fear of fear syndrome. You are anxious about getting more anxious. The ups and downs are horrible. There is no doubt your anxiety is more frequent but is it actuall...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hello Debs

Thanks for your message. Unless the jail confiscate or lose my medications, I will receive on Wednesday.

I know what you're going through waiting for the Pregabalin to kick in.

Be strong, never give in, and try to stop struggling.

God bless

Chris xx

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Caro Thanks ever so much for your kind message. The JW mailed this morning to say he had received the package! He will bring to me on Wednesday. Now I'm back up to 3 x 37.5 of venlafaxine until then. As for clonazepam, I will continue trying to come off it, knowing I have backup if things go wrong. ...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hello Debs, Caro Just to let you know that I checked the status of my wife's packages online this morning and it said the first package had arrived (for collection at the main post office)! I know I will still be worrying until I have the stuff in hand but the worry won't be as mega as the past few ...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hello Debs Thanks for your prompt reply, especially as you're feeling unwell. My brother has contacted the embassy urgently but I can't see how they can help. If they could find out why package delayed that might set mind at rest. The JW would just mail "not here yet". I asked him to get a...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hello Debs I tend to agree with what you said I'm down to 75mg now. I'll do that for 2 weeks then a week on 37.5. Hopefully my wife's packages will have arrived by then. As far as I can see, being on nothing is better than being on something that isn't working. I rang some pharmacies today. Incredib...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hello Debs, Caro I know I am looking at worst case scenarios here. I think we're all familiar with that way of thinking. I haven't been on venlafaxine very long so weening off if I have to do that may be ok. I started weaning off the benzo today. One quarter tablet every 10 days. The JW all credit t...
