lea39 Posted August 29, 2008 Share Posted August 29, 2008 i am writing for opinions on medication. I lost my mother in april, after 7 weeks of diagnosis. When i found out she was sick i myself got ill over the stress and worry etc. went to the doctors who gave me sleeping pills which i initially never took at first. My health deteriorated and my back and stomach got bad so the doctor put me on medication. \I was on it on and off as i do not like taking pills anyway after she died i cam eback home (live in different country to where mum lived) my appetite gradually got worse and i started taking the sleeping pills and other medication. Since beginning of july i have not been able to eat well and sleeping was so bad i did start taking the pills to help sleep, plus i was also drinking at home. Trying to cope with the loss and then 2 of my friends who died after my mum and 2 pets i became dependant on the tablets and drink. I went out one day for lunch and the girl i was with (likes her drink alot) bought me wine. all i recall is having 3 glasses and next thing i knew i was being pulled over by the police (have written about the arrest on previous post) Since then i do not drink anymore and have started seeing a counsellor. Me and my son were in a car crash 4 weeks ago (Other person fault and they have accepted liability) I have been to my doctor alot in the last month. she put me on prozac but the other day she told me to come off them and now gave me zispin.I read the instructions and side effects and it is very scary. My friend who is a nurse as told me to come off all medication but i have not as yet as i was rock bottom 2 weeks ago (suicidal thoughts). I have not had chance to grieve for my mother let alone anything else. I have a son and starting college next week, run a charity also. Obviously my son is acting out and as for his father, well the last 4 months he has rang once, i have a legal case going on also as he dont pY Mintenance and also we have land together and i have been paying the mortgage. I just wish things would go better and my son had more than i can give. i feeel guilty being on the computer and not giving him all my attention all the time and that his dad obviously doesnt care. my son needs his dad more than ever now yet he is not bothering with my son and i am so worried the effects it would have on my son as he grows up I have not received a summons for court yet and so worried about losing my license as where we live i need my car plus i had a clean licence for 20 years. can anyone advise please Link to comment
