OMG !!! Okay people I am so pissed right now that I could bite through nails. My daughter has some emotional problems. I do believe that she needs to get herself evaluated and get on the right medication. She shows all the signs of Manic Depressive. When she is up, erverything is good and lovely with the world and then she crashes without any warning and then she is down for days. She is able to function(so far) during these mood swings but I don't know enough about this problem to help her. She is only 21 years old and has been through more than anyone her age should go through. And I blame myself for alot of that (which doesn't help my depression any), but I have been trying for years to talk her into seeing someone for help. Telling her that there is not any shame for these feelings and that it doesn't make her a bad person. All these things are things that she is feeling and saying about herself. Her boyfriend that she is living with and has 2 kids by doesn't help much either. He and his family have that red neck back in the woods type of thinking that she should keep her problems at home and deal with them herself. I would like to wring his little" red neck " as hard as I could, but that is another story, anyways, I have finally talked her into talking to her doctor about some medication. She has a baby about 6 months old, and she has HPV. There aren't any cancer cells active as of right now but there is always that chance that they will become active. Every 6 months she has to be retested and start on some treatments. Okay, so the OB/ GYN starts her on Prosac. After a few months of taking this, she starts having some really low days and some suicial thoughts. Again I tell her go to your doctor again and tell him the medication isn't working and you need to see about something else. She did, she told the doctor her thoughts, and he recommended an evaluation. She said she would call for an appointment with the "WE CARE" agency and get things started. She left the office and when she cam home she was met by 2 cop cars at her house, getting ready to take her away because the doctor had called and said that she was a threat to herself. She was stunned and didn't know what to do. If she was in such bad shape at the office to where the cops had to be called, why let her leave? No let's embarass this girl who lives in a small trailer court, and wants to keep all this under wraps the way it is. He has just pushed her back years of trying to convince her, to get help. Isn't that what doctors are suppose to do?....Help? She could be going through some post partum depression as well. Why not talk to her about that? Doctors are too much in a hurry,too even care anymore. We are like cattle in the waiting room and I for one am sick to death of it!!!! Now where is she suppose to turn? She doesn't trust anyone, even me, and she really does need help! She can't take care of this by herself, I know this, and I'm afraid that things will just get worse. I know that the doctor, knows that too, but I feel that he could have done it with a little tact, and thought, before he acted on this. Please give me any input you have out there. Hanging on a thread here!

Hi, anyone here had seratonin syndrome that could send me a message?
A lot's been going on lately for me, and I'm feeling overwhelmed. The biggest thing is that I'm buying a place of my own-- a 2-bedroom apartment that is 15 minutes away from my job, if that. It's a really good buy, and I feel very excited and very grateful that I can become a homeowner. That being said, it's been very stressful, and I'll be closing on November 30th. There's so much to coordinate...
