Blood tests and Depots

Has anyone had any experience with blood tests and depots? I have had what I can only describe as a 'punishing regime' lately, of prescribing (and hence blood tests). So for example, by prescribing only two tablets at a time of lithium, for no logical reason, I have ended up having blood tests almos...

Re: Any help will do

Try reading or audioing 'The Road Less Travelled' by Dr Scott Peck. He talks about responsibility and , crucially, 'delayed gratification'. Also Mindmapping (apps are available, such as Simple Minds), though paper and pen is great. Old style :). Cant beat it! Organisation basically, the idea that pr...

Re: Partner's depression effecting both of us - any suggestions please

Hi I dont know if this will be helpful, and I apologise in advance if not so! I just wondered if he could improve his self esteem and confidence. An example would be to take up cycling, where he would get fresh air, and the motion of it would let him think these thoughts out and calm him. Or running...

Re: Very scared and Alone possible *trig*

Hi jazzrose The Samaritans are really good to talk with. You dont have to be suicidal, or talk about those feelings if you dont want to. They will listen without judgement and it can be really helpful to know they are there. They have many operators at any one time, and when you phone you will be pu...

Re: i think ill go and eat worms

Hi there I have much experience of the same thing. I spend a lot of time in solitude. Is it possible you are an artist, who perhaps is unsure of themselves, or has not yet sought out their medium? There is much to say also that people who shine brightly are ignored because their light is simply too ...

Re: Deserving Help

Hi, is that Radio Four? I listen to the radio a lot. My brain gets tired, and my eyes, and in the evening it is all I can do. Sometimes though, it has to be the Archers, as anything else is too much. I seem to 'think' all day long, often into the night, and the concept of rest, relaxation, is a myth...

Re: I need sleep

Just keep trying different things I guess. I know what a nightmare it is, it comes over me every now and then (bipolar), and it just feels like it will last forever. A particular form of torture, for sure. I always end up trying to establish an outdoor exercise routine, walking or cycling, for an ho...
