Muscle and joint pain
Feelings of hopelessness
Not caring if i live or die
Some assistance with meds; I am very sensitive to medications and quite often suffer the more obscure side effects. I've been on so many different meds I can't remember them all. I was down to 4 meds and the doctor increased them to 5 today.

Advice & Tips
I always have the same clinician, but also get to meet 3 (so far) psychiatrists.
Using the computer and its search engine on the internet I learnt a great deal about my problems, was able to self diagnose which was later ran by the doctor (psyciatrist) who confirmed my diagnosis.
Late I started using dialectal behaviour therapy using their daily diary/record sheets which in the end had a big impact on my daily life I was able to break from the confines of psycological withdrawal/isolation.
Now I am learning to mix with people again first on a small scale slightly increasing over a period of time.
This also impacts greatly on my lack of range of movement due to spinal damage and breathlessness due to the fybrosis.
