I'm almost 56yrs old and suffered from depression and anxiety for varying periods over the last 40yrs. Right now I'm down in the dark place again. Only just restarted on mirtazapine 3days ago. And my mood is pretty dark. I realise it takes a little while to work, but this has always been a risky time for me. (I've overdosed twice before). Community help (locally) from mental health worked would help but waiting lists are long. Nor sure if this is what's usually posted. Just needed someone out there to read this. And I feel like I'm rambling on. Sorry.
Hi everyone, Thank you for letting me join your group. My name is Mary, (Mary1016), the major illnesses I suffer with is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/RSD, small fiber peripheral neuropathy diagnosed with biopsy two weeks ago. I was told the neuropathy was already severe and the thing to do now is get me to a neurologist that specializes in pain medicine. Couldn't get an appointment until November 4th and am having great difficulty waiting. I'm going for another ketamine treatment this Sunday October 2nd. I was told by Columbia University after a failed lidocaine infusion, to go back to the ketamine doctor even though it made me start peeing blood. I don't have a lot of information on sfn. I want to basically know how long somebody usually lives when the Polyneuropaypthy is severe already. When my doctor gave me the results he hugged me for a long few minutes and told me basically not to loose my faith in God and to promise I won't take my life. I made those promises but I need to know how much worse this can possibly get and how long do people usually have to suffer. Thank you for taking the time to read:-)
