I know I'm depressed. I feel I have every right to be. But I also know it's not helping.
I just don't know how to fix it.
Do I talk to my GP? He'll only refer me to someone in Hamilton, that is if that kinda referral can even be made. I have no idea.
So do I look for a therapist in Toronto? Do I need a therapist, or a psychiatrist or what??
I really don't want to talk about my feelings. I just want a magic pill that will make me feel less overwhelmed and more motivated.
Have you ever had drugs that are supposed to induce euphoria? I mean as a side effect. I have. More than once. They never made me feel anything. Which makes me think any kind of 'magic pill' wouldn't make me happier.
I'm already on a very low dose of an antidepressant, for my pain, but it doesn't seem to affect my depression at all. I can't take more because it makes my eyes swell. No really. ugh.
But I need something. I'm sooo tired and sore all the time. Fuck, what I wouldn't give to feel like my old self for a day!! I hate this. I hate this so much.
And the depression just makes everything worse. It makes me not what to try, it makes the urge to curl up in a ball and play dead until it's over so very strong. I have a very hard time fighting it. I think it also makes me more tired. My body's natural reaction, when it can't handle the pain, or whathaveyou, is to shut down. How the hell do I stop that?!
I just feel so bloody hopeless.
