Hi.
I'm not really sure if this is the right place for me to ask this question but if it's not I guess maybe (if possible and you wouldn't mind) please directing me to the right forum.
Basically, everytime that I go to my psych we up my meds. I'm at the point where only in my head does it seem like it's a high dosage but really it's normal. I feel like it's my fault though that everytime I go (every wk- 3 depending on my suicidalness) it has to be upped. Like I'm not doing a good job in getting better, like I'm doing something wrong. I can't even verbalize it so well, what I'm tryiing to say but this is so bothersome to me. I'm trying hard to get better but what am I doing wrong? Why is it just getting worse?

i think that the whole part of depression or any mental illnesor wtvr is that oyu are paralysd so htat you cant do anything, or dont want to , but the fact that your actualy trying and want to get better- your already halfway there and doing better tahn most
also, why dont you talk to your psych about this?
hang on a little bit more k?

Dr. Lynn can answer this better but there are many meds that you automatically start on a low dose and gradually increase it if you are tolerating it well. It has nothing to do with getting better or worse.

frumsw- I know ur right about that it's still not the greatest feeling to increase a medicine every 3 weeks, sometimes it makes me feel worse knowing that I haven't reached my the right amount.

It must be difficult knowing you haven't reached your goal yet.

Hugs, Whatever you do, don't blame yourself. It's not your fault that you have an illness.

Feel good......

I agree with what has already been written here:
1) It is not your fault for suffering with a mental illness
2) It is not your fault that meds have to be adjusted. Sometimes it takes a while to find the right meds/dosage.
3) Keep posting here and sharing your experiences, since you will find that you are not alone going thru this.
