feeling lonely

Dec 17, 2013 - 2 comments

I feel lonely. I feel like I should be doing something but I don't know what to do. I wonder if anyone else feels this way. My thoughts were very dark last night but I kept them hidden because I was home alone with the boys. Lisa was gone for the evening. I felt the same way last night. I'm anxious about work. I have some ativan and I've thought about taking it to see if it would help me not feel so pointless in my actions. I know I should be studying but I just can't. I shouldn't say I can't,,I don't have the energy to. I feel lonely.

If I told you how I manage my day, you may really think it pathetic. Also I still have the challenge of weaning off the pain medications I've been on so long. Another Medhelp member sent me a note & said no matter how low the dose of Lithium you are taking, your blood levels should still be monitored.  What do you think?
You say you should be studying. If I may ask, what are you studying  ?
  Is Christmas getting you down? I know you say the tree is up ect. Are you trying to meet an artificial standard of Holiday Cheer?  I'm by myself a lot. Or with people paid to be here.
   I feel a certain communion with the trees. With nature. I love my cat & dog.
After I type for awhile here I do get tired. Do you have other ailments drawing you down than just the mental stuff?
Our friend Tony Weaver writes a lot about feeling as you do. He's busy repairing broken pipes from the freeze. Maybe leave him a note.  Feel better. Maxy

I thought that myself about the lithium. If they know what the therapeutic range is, why shouldn't it checked to see if it's there. My psych NP is not in agreement with that. I haven't really discussed it with her since we first started.
I'm a naturopathic physician,(ND) and I'm getting my license re-activated in January so I'm getting back up to speed on as much as I can.
I don't know if Christmas is getting me down or what. I'm just not right. Something isn't right.
