Avatar f tn I have been of work on sick since 15 weeks pregnant, due to anxiety and depression. im just wondering am I still entitled to maternity leave and maternity pay?? Im 21 weeks pregnant now?
Avatar f tn I have depression, anxiety problems and ptsd all in one, I haven't had any symptoms with my pregnancy and this is my 3rd pregnancy. I'm married and the only support I have is my husband and that is one of the main factors of my depression. I have insurance and they cover all but $20. There are risk factors the baby can have being on anti depression medications, they can have cleft palate and I know that for a fact as my friend just have birth and get daughter has it due to the medication.
Avatar f tn I totally know the feeling, and mine made my anxiety worse (ive always been anxious) I did have to medicate though, as I was crying all the time, and having anxiety attacks. I was glad to finally feel better with the meds, still not what I used to be, but better...I am VERY anti med also, but knew I had to do something. Alot of us understand!
Avatar n tn I believe from all the drugs i burnt out some connectors to my brain,that will never grow back! i have tons of people in AA and or NA that are on some pill or another for depression and or anxiety..Yes some of the crying is from the very deep healing retreat i just did,the rest is depression,and just day to day stress.Please don't tell me how i'm feeling,or what to do,i'm just looking for support,not judgment nor who's right or wrong,i am close to 40 for whoever said i am young.
Avatar f tn You are having classic symptoms of both depression and anxiety disorders. You are not unique as myself and others here can definitely relate to the stress, hopelessness, pain and frustration. You mentioned that you were seeking counseling. Is this with a psych specialist? Have you been given a formal diagnosis? There is help available through therapy and/or medication. You don't have to, nor were you meant to live this way.
Avatar f tn I am so sorry that your depression is untreatable, and with all those ECTs it has not improved. I presume no anti-depression medication has been effective in your case either. I presume you have tried them all. You certainly don't sound pathetic, I admire you for being such a fighter. Seems the doctors and psychiatrists have given up on you. Well I do not know what to suggest you do next, seems to me you have tried so hard.
1200240 tn?1289343287 U can also chat with ne of here, we all have Chiari or a loved one with it. BTW- Chiari can cause depression and anxiety...
1580085 tn?1400944438 i am really pleased you have started to feel better, as i was saying to barb, its very overwhelming, and i dont feel quite so alone after hers and yours help and advice, especially since you are in the uk too, i was wondering , if its not a terrible cheek , would it bo ok to send the odd pm to you, it would be a huge help for me but maybe a pain in the neck for you! (forgive the pun), lol . take care and god bless .
Avatar f tn The past 16 years I`ve been taking Paxil and have been able to cope with the depression and anxiety. I can tell you that eating the right healthy foods and getting a LOT of sunlight will help. I know it sounds strange but do you eat a lot of fast food? A LOT of food we eat has a chemical called MSG in it. It has been causing a lot of problems in people. Many people are very sensitive to preservatives in food which can cause depression,anxiety, insomnia, and pain throughout your body.
8023513 tn?1404356555 I'm know I'm lucky that I have my fiance by my side but lately I feel unloved and have started to resent him to the point where I don't even want our son. And that scares me. I've struggled with depression for the past five years but up until now I had been the calmest and happiest with myself. We live with his family and lately I don't even leave our bedroom - not that it feels like its mine at all. My stuff is still in bags because there's no room for it.
Avatar f tn I have gone threw 16 medications for depression and anxiety and all I want them to do is put me back on the meds I was on from my old Doctor and I will be fine again. The only thing keeping me going is self medicating with the meds I use to be on and I'm half way fictional right now . I am getting my meds off the street. And its very costly but I feel if I don't do that I would have already killed myself. The VA does not care about us veterans that is why we are Ginnie pigs to them .
Avatar m tn Its been 4 years, me too therapy, phys. Was on all kinds of depression pills and nothing worked. Its 2007 and i still fear the symptoms, I call cdc all the time to asking same questions, talk about crazy. I havent felt well and the doc say nothing is showing up, well i ended up with an autoimmune disease, hashmotos(hypothyrism). read that could be caused by a virus. and and they say I have fibro cause theres no answers to my pains.
1310464 tn?1273770871 Hi, I am new here too but, what your describeing sounds like OCD ( Obsessive Complusive Disorder ) and YES it can accompy Depression and will lead to anxiety and stress. Like a vicious cycle one will feed off of the other. Have you gotten any counseling? If not hon I would highly reccommend you do. This disorder can be so painful mentally and lead to more mental issues.
2158692 tn?1336779666 Hi Everyone. Im a Professional poker player and champion from London UK. I spend much of my time in Las Vegas. Most of my family have had heart issues, many have died from heart problems and I am now terrified that my life is going the same way. I used to be very fit but over the last few years I havent been going to the gym and only recently started again. I have high blood pressure, high cholestorol and was a heavy smoker for many years (given up now) - didnt watch my diet etc etc.
Avatar m tn Had mild depression for two years and then had some nasty panic attacks when I moved house two years ago. In the UK we have the normal tablet and then the timed release tablet. I am trying to come off by using the 37.5mg timed release in the morning then the 37.5mg normal tablet with 10% (7.5 mg) chopped in the evening, for a starter. I previously tried going one day on the 37.5 and then the 75mg and try to alternate but this seemed too big a drop for me.
Avatar f tn I was thinking the same thing that I shouldn't take the antianxiety because I just need my thyroid meds ajusted, but I also agree that what ever helps us through our days a little more normal and comfortable. I just quit my full time job due to the anxiety and panic attacks and would quit school if I didn't have so much money and blood and tears and sweat tied up in it. I would shut myself in my house too if it were left up to me. Maybe it's a good thing I don't have a choice.
Avatar f tn And i claimed ESA about 5 years ago due to anxiety and depression and yes you do get evaluated for it after a few months of claiming.
Avatar m tn hi i have been ill for nearly a year, i wasn't going to speak about this, but after seeing the amount of people sharing their experiences, so i would like to share mines and see what you think.

309783 tn?1271961829 I was very happy on it as it gave me a complete break from my acne. After my second relapse i was treated for anxiety and depression with diazepam and venlafaxine. I wonder to what extent the occurance of depression after taking roaccutane is related to relapse, that is that the acne causes the depression. Or does it occur to the same extent in those who's treatment resulted in remission?
Avatar m tn Hello and welcome to MedHelp and the Anxiety Community! No wonder you're stressed! You have been through a lot and basically the way you knew life to be has all changes dramatically. You have endured a lot of major life changes, that would cause anxiety in anyone. There are many things you could do to help manage the anxiety.... If you don't typically have anxiety issues outside of these kinds of stressful situations, then I would recommend seeking out some therapy.
Avatar n tn I am four weeks--minus a weekend where I fell off the wagon--without vicoprofen and I still feel energyless; I've also suffered a lot of anxiety and panic about not having the drugs. BUt I have an excellent doc who put me on paxil and xanax (in small amounts) and while I'm still moving in something of a fog, I don't feel as depressed. I even listened to some Van the other night and really was able to succumb to the music--first in a long time.
Avatar m tn I briefly searched google, and only found information on anxiety and depression after quitting for a period of time, and not directly after smoking. I am interested to hear if anyone has had experiences like this, or if anyone at least has any insight into the situation. Thank you.
Avatar n tn This has me very troubled as we have a family history on both sides of depression and bipolar illness. When talking with him, he says he feels that his younger brother (6yo) gets all the attention and that we yell at him (my older son) too much. The teachers at school comment on what a wonderful child he is, but remark on his low self esteem. "I'm nothing," he said to the latest teacher. He has to work very hard at school to do well because of his difficulty in the Language Arts.
Avatar f tn Personally, it took me probably a total of 5 months to *really* get myself back from the anxiety and depression (my main concern was the anxiety). Every now and then I'll have a mild bout of anxiety or depression, but it has gotten so so so much better. I saw the biggest difference after just one week off the pill, so I hope you will experience at least the same relief right away.
Avatar f tn It is a treatable condition, the first step is recongnising it for what it is. When I overcame my depression and OCD the sense of freedom was unparralled. It was hard work and the path was a hard one but if I had not actually recognised that I had an issue I wouldn't be where I am now. So manyt of you that come on here believe that HIV is your issue, I don't think it is I think it is how your OCD or depression is controlling your thoughts and emotions, they are bullies.
Avatar f tn its a test and depression is a test for us....we ll be held accountable when we die for our good and wrong deeds. i wish you best of luck.....
3063937 tn?1352426455 I have had depression for 20+ years, and each time I take myself off my anti-depressant, depression comes back. This has happened many times. I have been in hospital, seen psychologists, psychiatrists, counsellors, etc. But I am still fighting it. I am in good place at the moment thanks to medication. I live in UK so cannot help you with residential care. Here a psychiatrist will recommend a hospital, or people pay a lot to go privately.
645800 tn?1466864555 I understand the depression over what you used to do and now what you can't do. And no one can tell you not to grieve something that has been taken away from you. I may not be expressing myself as well as I wish to. I hope I am saying the appropriate things.?? If not please forgive me.
Avatar m tn Plus I have had some CBT sessions and have been referred to a psychiatrist for evaluation who incresed my medication. The depression seems better but the anxiety is not and will be coming of the anti depressants. So would really appreciate any advice. Thanks.
