***trigger warning*** yesterday I finally told my hubby the details of my "bad thoughts and urges" I keep getting daily. That I have the urge to take a bunch of pills, like I have before. I would go to the hospital, if my job wasn't at risk, but it is at risk. I already got a warning from my supervisor for missing three days because of physical health reasons. I feel so stuck, at risk, confused, and helpless.

you know I always pay close attention to the lyrics of songs, and here is one that stuck to me. breathe easy darling, you can find sunshine in the rain. I have them written down to where I can have a quick glimpse when things are wanting to invade my mind. is there a support group at your job, community or perhaps a church? do you journal and write what major events happened and what may help you? Another way could join a gym or walk during breaks? I am glad you were able to go to the Dr. is there a way he/she could refer you to another colleague that could be more flexible with hours?

@growingrace He has his own private practice, and yea I actually am in a group through my church, but it is a marriage group, mostly with couples much older than us. I been thinking about joining a grief group though if I can find it. And thank you for your reply, I appreciate it.

@Sosh2018 Good u got to see him but.... Doesn't sound like u got all that u need altho u do sound a little better....(?)
Not fully understanding your work days/hours nor area (small town?) where u LCSW...it seems like u may want to research other options for medication management???
I would agree that journaling--your symptoms, how u feel, intensity, how often, what helps... Would that help?
Do u see pdoc monthly?
You could also make a note of your medication history..
That way you could maybe have more facts together for next Appointnent? Or call his office next week and speak with him (?) and tell him this isn't working and u really need something more..
Googling "meds for intrusive thoughts" brings up SSRIs... Maybe u need that or dosage change. Ketamine is newly approved for tx of depression... Just some thoughts... Keep us posted
