Thread: Uncle died on Christmas Day. Advice needed

    Uncle died on Christmas Day. Advice needed

    This is a short version!

    Seen the doc on thursday and she prescribed 21 2mg Diazepam to be taken x3 a day.

    In the past just with general anxiety she's given more and it worked then.

    Trouble is now these are not even taking the edge off, I'm scared I may have a seizure(get them when stressed) and drop the coffin.

    I've not eaten in 4.5 days, I'm not sleeping even with the 2mg diazepam.

    I feel I need a higher dosage or I won't be able to get through this and support my family.

    Due to see another doc on Tuesday morning and going to explain the above but anxious she'd think I just want drugs. The current dose isn't working for my anxiety and to de stress.


    Am I wrong to bring this up with her on tuesday? As if I don't get something sorted with me not eating I'll end p in phsyc hosp again.

    Any advice is welcome many thanks.

    Condolences for your loss. I agree with BB. Grief counseling would be a great option. I can't recommend it enough.

    Am
    I reading this write as you have diazepam to calm you down for the funeral? And are you carrying the coffin? If so and itís the event Iím sure your GP would prescribe a higher dose but be sure not to get to much. And as above meds are prob not best to deal with grief counselling will help. I been in therapy for over a year now it helps offloaded every week

    Yes I'm carrying the coffin so the current 2md diazepam isn't enough for me I feel as I've have 5mg in the past.

    I have a shrink but that's not until weeks after funeral.

    Just feel at such a loss as to what to do.

    Thanks all

    There are grief groups online. That would be better if grief counseling is not an option right now.

    I'm going to explain to GP on Tuesday as the 2mg isn't helping and I need something to get me through this. He was a father to me, I'm broken.

    Family offering to go in with me but I can speak to GP on my own,


    Still so anxious over it all it's making me throw up.

    I understand. I lost my best friend suddenly in 2014; I discovered his body.

    It's not going to be easy. The first month is the roughest, followed by the first year. But you will make it through. It helps to keep busy; any alone time where you can let your thoughts spiral is hard. Definitely ask for a higher dose; you will probably need it also to sleep.

    Please feel free to reach out to me by PM if you need to talk.

    Thank you and did PM.

    Most seem to agree asking for a slightly higher dose isn't the worst thing in the world. It's that or I have a breakdown due to stress anxiety and the sleep issue not to mention the grief. Typing this with tears streaming,

    Of course it's not Mark Do you think your dr will help? I mean some are very understanding and some aren't. If this is any help you could look for a alternative maybe such as a herbal remedy Try and stay strong through this dark time. It will get easier too ATB Mark
