After 17 ECT treatments in '92, I spent 2 yrs in bed, went on disability and into a halfway house. My energy's never been the same and nothing's helped since then - I've tried everything and no one has listened to me the last 30 years. I've spent the last 20 yrs in bed. For some reason I've been extremely sick since starting prozac 6 mths ago - gave me insomnia and my days and night are completely screwed up, my mood is torture, zero energy, can't relax or rest, irritable, can't do anything. I've been very sick last 45 yrs, been hospitalized 28 times, taken every medication, had ECT 5 times all with virtually no relief, therapy never helped. No one has listened to me the last 2 wks - Paramedics were here last week and I was in torture and refused to go to the hospital - every hospital has abused and ignored me because I can't do anything. Crisis ignored me all last week. Dr said he can't help me anymore - he tested me and said I need to see an endocrinologist very badly because my testosterone and adrenal levels are high. And since December I haven't been able to get an appt. with Endo. Finally got one a mth ago and couldn't make it I was so sick. Endo gave me another appt in April and I can't wait! I need relief asap! My Dr said, "You can wait" and I said "I can't!". I'm totally at my wit's end! Mental health "professionals" don't understand anything I tell them! They think it's all in my head and it's not!!!

I know why you wanna hate me! Cause hate is all the world has seen lately! - Limp Bizkit

If you are still taking prozac - i take mine before bed. It knocks me out, even tho its supposed to be "energizing".

It pains me you are going through all this pain. I can empathize. I wish you felt better. All I can possibly do is offer support.
