help....please *updated*

hey,
dont know why im posting this.

im sat at the computer crying......my fiancee has gone out shopping with her mum and family friend sarah!
she wanted me to go with them but i just feel so weak. im on antibiotics for a chest infection and ive been on them for nearly a month!

ive lost interest in things that i used to love.
dont really feel like going out any more!
i hide myself away in the bedroom....even though i dont need to.
i just dont feel like interacting with other people much atm.
i wont even walk to the shop on ym own anymore or try and avoid going altogether!
my fiancee brings me food and drink because i wont go downstairs and get them myself because i would probably bump into other people on the landing!

i dunno what to do anymore!

Hun they are all classic symptoms of depression and there is so much help out there for you but you need to reach out for it - how about seeing your GP?

Totally agree with the other two...esp Matthews hot tea suggestion (being the odd American that believes a good cup of strong, hot tea fixes everything)...
*big cuddles* (they're much nicer when they're over the internet sometimes huh?)

hey hunny, have you ever heard of pre-natal depression? its depression caused by your hormones and is as common as post-natal depression but not so well publicised. it can be more common in women who have suffered depression in the past (as can post natal depression so keep an eye out).

please go see the dr, and take vicky with you. give her a list of things you want to say so if you aren't able she can say them for you or give it to the dr. love and cuddles to all 3 of you,

i've heard that chicken soup is a natural antibiotic. it is bland too. getting extra fluids can do nothing but help. watch the caffeine in the tea though, it might dehydrate you.
where you are is there some kind of mentholated ointment, the kind that you spread on your chest? It is called "Vicks vap-o-rub" here. I don't put it on my skin at all but instead when i'm sick with some kind of cold or respratory infection, put it on the shower head when i shower. that way i get nice medicinal steam that makes me feel a bit better. of course you or you doc know how it might affect the baby.
give yourself permission to rest to get over this. if you don't use energy trying to do things, your body will have more energy to fight the infection.

wishing you a speedy recovery,
hugs, susan



My husband is my best friend.

In forgiving others, we are not exonerating them. They may not deserve exoneration. Rather, in forgiving others we are giving up our anger over the fact that what happened is not what "should" have happened or that our life is not the way it "should" have been.

hey lisa, vicks is a good idea (it is called the same here), you can use it in a bowl of hot water and stick a towel over your head, it can sometimes loosen a bad chest and help the phlegm to start clearing.

I don't think they'll tell you nothing is wrong, and even if they do you are entitled to a second opinion, because clearly something is wrong and it's something that's not your fault and that you can get help for, just like your chest infection.

Different people prefer different approaches with doctors, just do whatever you need to do to explain how you feel. You could write some bullet points down and rehearse them to talk to the doctor about, or if you are really nervous you can just go in and explain your very anxious and could they please just read something that you've prepared before.

Seriously, everything you said in your first post sounds like classic symptoms of depression, so I really think you should find some way to talk to your doctor about it; mention losing interest in things and not being able to go out.

It's really hard to reach out and ask for help so well done in deciding to talk to someone and a *big hug* for being so brave. Good luck, let us know how it goes.



Talking nonsense to the air...

I'd show the doc your first post here...describes it pretty well...if they don't see depression there (I guess we here may recognise it better from experience but...) then they're one french fry short of a happy meal...
They won't tell you that nothings wrong...and if they do, push it! Tell them you know somethings wrong and you need some help. Write it all down if it helps...
*hugs*
Take care sweetie.
Much love
Alyssa
