Avatar m tn Since then she has been suffering from headaches and mind seizures as well as fear, depression and anxiety. She has had to quit her job and we are probably going to have to file for disability for her. I think a support group would help her feel not so all alone.
2070825 tn?1337225969 go to pregnancy groups..make friends..get counselling or cbt for your anxiety and depression its not safe to take antidepressants whilst pregnant. I asked my doc when I was pregnant and he researched if they were safe . His answer was "only take them in pregnancy if the benefits outweighs the risks. So no he said. They're not safe.. only if you're feeling desperate that you'll harm yourself.

Avatar f tn to talk to people with the same depression illness as me?
Avatar f tn First I'm a male 21 years old and live in Garden Grove California. I have anxiety, I haven't seen a doctor and been diagnosed but I've quite had a few panic attacks, also for about 2 or 3 months I couldn't leave the house. My dad has anxiety as well and although he kind of got it he didn't at the same time. I got an anxiety workbook which had a section on some other things including OCD and depression. In the check for depression I showed 7 of the 9 signs for it.
Avatar f tn With the due date so close I'm starting to feel the anxiety of becoming a mom, honestly I'm so very scared and feel so unprepared. I keep trying to stay calm but there's just these moments where I feel like I have nothing ready, I feel like I'm going to fail being a mom. I get panic attacks and I don't really have anyone there to vent or to be there for me.

672839 tn?1305792947 To me, there are two types of groups, 1) Support and 2) Self Help. Support Groups are places to go and feel safe. Lead by others with medical conditions like ours, opinions are shared by all, and comfort is widely given while tears flow. The discussions are personal and individualized making this the place to be when your chin is on the ground. Self-Help groups relieve a different pain. In this setting professionals teach you the steps necessary to better yourself and your position.

Avatar m tn I bought kit from the Midwest Centre for Anxiety and Depression, it is a 15 week course, but at the end i felt 80% cured. With time, and through constant practice, i would say that i am basically cured. In addition to changing your way of thinking, the course teaches you to relax through breathing exercises. I would really reccommed you look into the Mid West Centre for Anxiety and Control and let me know what happens.
Avatar f tn m overwhelmed, but I manage to get to a place of serenity and realize this is normal. I also suffer from depression of and on and have had some good cries during my pregnancy, but I've learned to use my instincts and coping mechanisms from my past. Don't feel guilty about how you feel, the baby is fine as long as you're getting your rest, eating well and recognizing how you feel rather than keeping it in. I would get in touch with a public health nurse if that's available to you.

Avatar m tn I am very worried and was wondering are feelings of deep depression/anxiety common after abusing drugs like Tramadol? I know it is an opiate, so maybe a serotonin over load or something? ): I also still feel sick to my stomach. Any help would be greatly appreciated! "Also I am aware of my stupid decision and plan on never, ever doing it again.
1138674 tn?1260816231 People form into little groups and exclude people for no valid reason which hurts big time and they often form their own groups to get back at them Hate groups really. It's a big shock for many of us who don't want to play those silly games but they are for real aren't they. And they mean to hurt. It's actually not much different later in life, like me, either Dazed so mostly society says to us "Get used to it or sink".
2070825 tn?1337225969 I have dealt with depression my whole pregnancy you should look into speaking to professional about your depression and looking into joining groups with similar stories so you don't think your the only one. I also found that going shopping even if u don't buy.anything helps you could started planning all the things you want/need for the baby.
1876782 tn?1320490201 Exercise is so good for depression and anxiety! Start out slow with walking, and increase it slowly every few days. Often you have to force yourself to do this, but will find that you feel so much better afterwards! This will help with everything including your weight. Keep junk food out of the house, and eat several healthy snacks a day instead of 3 big meals. This keeps your metabolism running on high and you will be more satisfied.
Avatar f tn High blood pressure and depression are almost cross connected with anxiety. Depression can lead to anxiety, anxiety can lead to depression and anxiety can lead to high blood pressure. Vitamin B12 (cobalamine) can also have harmful effects on you like memory loss and some cognitive effects. Mania and psychosis may result. But they are most likely to happen in elderly people. The best sources of vitamin B are fresh dairy products and meats.
2011699 tn?1328933353 There are a couple of things that I would recommend that you do so that you can make informed decisions and be less overwhelmed (which can increase anxiety and depression). Get a big expanding file folder and label it with sections such as "lab results", "Hep C information", "insurance", "bills/receipts", "prescriptions", etc.
17160132 tn?1454204064 It sounds like anxiety, depression and maybe bipolar depression, but I'm not a doctor. I do have anxiety and depression and I totally get how you feel. It *****, doesn't it?
Avatar f tn Are Anxiety support Groups of any value? Anyone had success attending one? Where could I find a list by state?
Avatar n tn It is very important for her to see a doctor for this. My daughter is taking a low dosage of prosac at night to help with her anxiety and depression which helps but talking about everything that is going on is very important too. She needs a large cheer squad to get her through this time. I have found that my daughter's blood sugars will rise before school without her even realizing what is going on.
Avatar n tn That may be something for you to look into, also you can look for support groups in your area. There are usually quite a few for anxiety and depression. Support groups always sounded so cheesy to me, but it has really helped, so if you can find one give it a try it's really good therapy. At one point I couldn't drive, all I could do was lay in my bed, the depression and anxiety had gotten so bad. I was unable to care for my son most days.

6323659 tn?1399110599 I have horrible horrible anxiety and PTSD in addition to that I struggled with anorexia for 10 years and my last hospitalization was less than a year ago. My Dr said that even tho my antianxiety meds are a class d it's way too dangerous for me to not take them because I can't function. I lost my apartment and my job when I went off of them at the beginning of my pregnancy. I'm on Zoloft now which is one of the safest meds.
