Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
What did the smaritaians say?
How are you feeling now?
Have you tried calling anyone else?
I feel too vulnerable and scared to see my gp as I feel too unwell mentaly. the were good at listening but no advice given. I feel deperate and scared
I think that in this situation you can try going to the emergency or call the following numbers for help:
0800 11110800 068 41 41
Are you currently on any medications for your anxiety?
other than diazepam that you mentioned
no. I am a therapist specialising in anxiety and stress management with palliative care patients. . I should know all the tools but feel too ill to use them. can moemally manage re hypnotherapy. mind is shutting down n having awful guilty thoughts. not sleeping n desperate for my mind to be quiet
I understand that its really tough for you at the moment
I would have felt the same way if I were you.
Are there any stressful events going on in your life currently?
I feel so scared at moment, work I very stressful and we are given more work on top of patient care. I work 30 miles away, due to work demands I am working sometimes 10 hours. my caseload as got higher complex cases no supervision at work. john my partner as left this am for his daughters graduation and feel I have spoilt it for him as am not strong enough to stop my anxiety from rearing it ugly head. My thought are consstanly punishing me at the moment. \My patients fighting to live and I feel life cant go on .
I am sorry that you are feeling really down.
Is there any friend whom you can trust and contact right now?
I mean you need to have someone whom you trust beside you.
I don't feel strong enough to see my gp. I feel I have no friends as I have a social phobia so find it difficult to make friends. I always on outside looking in. My children have grown up with my mental illness and anxiety . I now feel go guilty and tired if living with this illness. feel I burden them too much. john is supportive but it is his special day. and feeling low vulnerable and scared. would love to take a pill to quieten my mind and thoughts
has diazepam helped any?
no not really.. the phone numbers you gave what are they for?.don't know how to start re GP. what could I say in a 5 mins emergency appointment and the thought of going out at moment terrifies me.
The numbers that I gave you are of organizations similar to the one that you called already
So they may be able to help you out in a better way.
Going to the emergency they will give you medications that will help with your anxiety. I understand that you are already taking diazepam but you may need some parenteral medications as oral are not helping
Alternatively you can try taking a 10 mg dose of diazepam and see if that helps.
ok. thanks but it not helping at moment . the Samaritans were very good as I felt so scared re taking my pills. that feeling still coming and going. its my mind at moment then my anxiety. I know what I should do and feel so angry withh myself..
what are parenteral medications x
Parenteral means medications taken other than the oral route i.e. iv medications or intramuscular medications.
Sometimes oral medications may not work as good as the intravenous or intramuscular.
I don't think I have the stenght to go to emergency as they are very poor re phycolical support. I have had bad exeriences in the past re pain they always treat you as an anxious person. Working with anxious people too they too have bad expeiences. There are so many ill patients too it would just heighten my anxiety
You can try calling the people i.e. the numbers that I mentioned or try taking 10 mg diazepam instead of 5 and see if that helps.
