As I reflect………I realize I need help (Updated)

Today, I had the worst breakdown that I’ve ever had. The last one I had was a couple years ago, and today’s was this continual on/off thing for hours and hours on end, starting from about 3 pm and continuing on until I got drunk with some friends. Yay booze! But, in all seriousness, I don’t know what caused it to happen. All I know is that it did when I was driving to meet someone, and I just started the breakdown for absolutely no reason that I can ascertain. And it stopped, then started up about 20 minutes later. This thing continued on for hours and hours. The 2 things I’m sure of, though, are that I don’t want it to happen tomorrow, and if it does, I’m going to see a psychiatrist.

Update: The Wednesday after I wrote this, I ended up going to see someone. Which, in all honesty, is not something I do. I like to solve stuff without needing help, so, when I go for help, to me it feels like I’ve given up. Anyways, yesterday, I was talking to one of my really good friends for a couple hours and found out that she was being treated way back. I was also talking to the girl that I’m “seeing” and it came out that she’s being treated currently.

I’m kind of ambivalent about doing this, but I also don’t like to leave things open so it’s kind of..not necessary..but almost wanted. Anyways, the short of it is that that I was diagnosed with “adjustment disorder with mixed anxiety and depressed mood”, so I get therapy and a prescription!

    Well good (about the going to see someone bit). We don’t want Phil to be broken. Take care of yourself.

    Da. Seriously. I’ve been there. It’s not fun at all. Alcohol seems to help but actually makes it worse. Definitely go see someone about it!

    I doesn’t wants a borked Phil either. 😦

      It will pray for a Phil. I know the Phil doesn’t believe that it will helps but I do. So I will. 🙂

    I think a good chunk of us have been through the mental health offices at some point. Nothing to worry about. Hopefully they can help.

    Though personally I didn’t like the antidepressants I had.

      Most of the antidepressants here are SSRIs, mine is an SSRE. And everyone that I’ve spoken to that used an SSRI has hated it.

      It is kind of annoying that I have to take it every 6 hours or so, but meh.

        I like my SSRIs.

            Are you sure you don’t mean you like your holes filled? 😛

            I’m working on it. And so are other people, but I has my happy pills!
