I’ve been having a really tough time with this. My symptoms have got so bad I can barely function anymore. My head is spinning all day everyday, I am an absolute mess. I took amitriptyline for a few days but just stopped because to be honest I gave up. I’ve given up. I’m turning here again as I know you understand. I know deep down I need medication but I have this ridiculous medication phobia and it’s out of control. My doctor says I need to give it another go. My symptoms are so bad I just really don’t want to do anything that could make it worse. It’s too bad already. My relationships with friends and loved ones are falling apart. I spend all day in bed because I can’t bare to move because of the dizziness and vertigo. I just don’t know what to do. I’m 22 and I miss my life so much.
I know I will have to try the medication again and it’s up to me to do it, but does anyone have any advice?
I have amitriptyline and diazepam (Valium) when needed to try. My main fear is that it’ll put me in a position where I can’t even move. I feel near to that already without adding anything else.
I apologise for the hopelessness of this post. I don’t know where to turn. Deep down I know I need to do something.
