Given up, need virtual hug.
« on: June 10, 2022, 07:17:39 am »
I apologise for this being a pity party, but at 40 months off zop, nearly 2 years off ADís actually feel Iím getting worse. The physical symptoms have all eased, have had one proper window in all this time. Although not housebound severly restricted to what can do. How can mental symptoms stubbornly refuse to shift, tried every distraction, self help books and videos going. Starting to think maybe Iíve got early onset dementia. I had lot family stress for 6 months last year which didnít help. But most people who started posting same time as me are improving, I am of course glad for them, what makes it worse is I was living a normal life on zopiclone  didnít choose to come off it. I canít get any more, and am wary getting any off the net, and have to go to surgery where I live,  probably too late now anyway.But really starting to believe this might be the new me, sorry to be such a downer everyone.

Sending you a big warm virtual hug. I'm in the same place struggling so badly. Last night I had fear and panic the whole night and at 4 a.m. I started getting terrible nausea and stomach pain. I am just doing absolutely horrible today! Have been 4 months now and the last month has been even worse than ever. A few Windows have popped in but the other days have been worse than they've ever been.

Feel like in acute again. Not doing anything different. Starting to doubt ď the everyone recoversĒ mantra at the moment. Why does nothing help when this whole time forced myself to go out and face things, try self help measures, distract, why did I even bother, so angry I felt so much better on zopiclone than living this half life.Everyone else at least seems to get windows.

Bit too old for gym, I do treadmill every day, Pilates once week, go for walk least once day. Need something to sort my brain out, physically OK, mentally like brain damage. Maybe I have got mental illness, donít know anyone else who feels worse than they did a year ago this far out. I do wonder if some people donít recover, just donít post any more or end up on protracted board. You go for gym if you think will help.
