Avatar m tn I have become agoraphobic once again, venturing out only to work, an occasional workout (alone), or to my weekly Faithful Recovery meeting. The group is really great. It's a recovery group for addictions of all kinds. We have a great group of people who are all very supportive and easy to relate to as Christians. So, work is hard. It is the type of job where you have 100 things to do at all times, each begging to be the most important.
Avatar m tn Welcome to the forum Derrin, I think you will find some comfort and help here, you are getting help and meds for your symptoms that is good ,they do say that therapy can help as you will get chance to talk it through,some of us are from Miltary backgrounds but our PTSD comes from other trauma we have had and like you are battling through and sometimes winning, there will be others to give you input, let us know how you are getting on,
Avatar m tn And YOU care about you. Because YOU DO... you wouldn't be here, asking for help if you didn't. It's scary to ask for help, but not only did you, but you did it in a way that can be TERRIFYING... you reached out to strangers. Bravo... seriously, BRAVO. *BIG BOOB-SMOOSHIN HUGS* Now keep it going. You can do it! Beefree posed some good questions: "What do you want? What do you want your life to look like? How do you want to feel? What kind of person do you want to be?
Avatar n tn But it sounds like you need someone to talk to...if you are a christian ? Not sure....but if so I would highly reccomend a good wholesome counselor very soon. Someone who can give you advice that works, which in my opinion is the word of god. I'm not forcing anything on you and not interested in a religious debate from anyone who may read this but I know what God can do. And if u ask for prayer you show interes in needing the lord for help.
Avatar m tn You need to be able to sit down with an uninvolved 3rd party who will listen to you and help you work thru this. Sometimes...depression gets to the point where it is nearly impossible to work on it independently. Sharing your thoughts and feelings in a venue like this is priceless also. I hope you continue to do that. It's basically free group therapy. You are sharing with people that not only care about you...but also have lived it/are living it as well. Get well for your kids....
Avatar n tn If you ever need help right away you can e-mail me at ***@****. Your friend, Jules Angelina - There are several things that can help you with your depression read the past posts Thomas will tell you exactly what. I believe it is Ltyrosine but check with him. He wrote something to me last week about it as I was going through the same thing.
Avatar n tn This was recommended because I was also being treated for Hep C which also causes depression. Most of the people in my group were not given any AD's though. There must be a good reason for this, I suppose. If you read some of the posts in the MGH depression forums, you will hear a lot of bad things about them. This may sound strange but when I was on Paxil, I started drinking heavily after about three months. I rarely even had hangovers.
Avatar f tn it doesn't help with the mind set, the psychological issues. Campral can help you, it'll help with the cravings, but only AFTER you've detoxed. I respect that you have problems with AA, not everybody "likes" it, BUT you have to remember that it is your own choice that you drank while tryi g to work it. Also, one bad experience doesn't mean it can't work out some other timw. However, it's your choice and your feelings, but you MUST detox. I would go to the hospital to do that.
Avatar f tn I tried talking to this one Christian guy online, but he stopped talking to me when I started talking about my depression. I tried Christian Chat. com, but they were so cold and cliqquish. How can I deal with my depression. I feel like life is just so dull and meaningless. I don't feel like doing anything. I spend all my time on the computer. I find life so boring. How can I get over this?
Avatar m tn It did not make her want to get help though. And like I said she has been to many different therapies. When she went to the christian women's home, that was another rock bottom. What would rock bottom be to you? I do agree, I think the paxil doesn't work, I think it just sustains and only sometimes. She has been on it almost 10 years now. Nobody has ever suggested she change to anything else.
Avatar n tn Please don't take this the wrong way, but I am not looking for a Christian group to pray for me and do not have the resources right now to deal with the child within stuff. Thanks much.. I am very grounded and just need a little help right now. I have worked very hard on my issues, and have found the courage to make all these changes to my life. This is a good thing, but I feel I am running out of gas at the wrong time!!!! I feel like a Mercedes Benz that has no tires!!!!
Avatar f tn I was just wondering if anyone has been on birth control pills and have suffered from anxiety or depression issues? I have been on the pill for 11yrs now and cant take how I am feeling anymore. I went on the pill for irregular periods, but since then I have been feeling blah, libido has decreased severely, I have sinus problems- I found out I have no allergies- so I think it is related to axiety, I worry constantly about everything; I get so nervous I get light headed sometimes.
Avatar f tn I do have some issues as stated in my previous post from last night. I really think I need alot of help, I'm so frustrated. It seems I do not have the time or the money to fight this and that na/aa are becoming my only hope. Does anybody have to drive 1.5 hrs to get to their meetings? Is that even really a practical solution? I feel that If I could have gone to one yesterday I would not have been as panick stricken as I was yesterday as stated in last nights post. pleas read!!!
Avatar f tn However, some people, myself included, needed help to recover from depression. Yes, I would agree. Each person experiences depression differently and feels it differently although most people who are depressed experience common symptoms to one degree or another. You say your best friend is suffering through a depression and you're trying to help her. You feel like she is pushing you away. It seems like she doesn't understand. I don't know if you ever experienced this. But I do.
444932 tn?1273984397 Is that unique to me or maybe related to something else like depression? Please share your experiences. I decided this week that I have to stop taking this drug. I have been stealing it from family members to keep my habit going. Yeah, not so proud of that. I have become so devious and sneaky - trying to strategically place myself near mom or grandma's purses so that I can nonchalantly reach in and snag 30 or more Lortab. My job is a mess.
Avatar n tn You might want to discuss the depression issue with your doc when you go in so he can start you on something to help with that. It will continue to help you in the weeks after you go through the withdrawals and keep you from "depressing" into wanting to find other ways to obtain the pills. Good luck, and I am glad to see you have a pretty good outlook on this already.
535152 tn?1215018769 I'm familiar with the teen challenge program, myself I am LDS but am familiar with the Christian programs. I will definitely look into that thanks. I just want him to get help, he's the most amazing person. He's been thru so much and overcome addiction before and has just fallen back.
Avatar f tn i think it's time i get help. last year i started the 8th grade and nothing was wrong. i am, or was now that i graduated, considered popular at my school. everyone was my friend, i wasn't getting bullied, and i didn't have any reasons to be depressed but that just wasn't enough i guess. as days passed i just became less happy. i didn't know what was wrong with me but i felt numb to life. nothing made me genuinely happy anymore. i began questioning my purpose.
190559 tn?1280615967 Please consider a social worker or a psychologist to help her through this. There are also great group therapy sessions where your daughter can see that she's not the only one going through something like this. *If* you live in the U.S., and because your daughter has a medically diagnosed "disability", according to Section 504 of the Civil Rights Law your school must make special accommodations to help your child.
Avatar m tn I would strongly recommend you start exercerising at least 30 minutes a day - even if you feel bad. it sounds like some of your problem could be causing depression and exercise will help this as well as your diabetic situation. Do you have a dog to walk with? If not, maybe your wife or one of your children could walk with you.
Avatar f tn If you can get to any type of Aftercare like AA/NA or Christian Recovery Groups this will help so much. Just to be able to Vent out how we feel is a start. I had to reach out and reach far & further out more & more, as life will not always be what we want it to be. It takes so much WORK to keep on the right path. SO much Support. Maybe look up what they have to offer in your town. I know we have many Churches that help us Addicts out by there Works too! Meanwhile..
Avatar m tn that's with a higher power within me HELP I'm scared!!!!! I will not stop meetings they striped me so they should pick me up Or is that just the selfish addict in me Help please somone??? They say at meetings when u really need that call someone suprises you & calls Well Call please!!!!
Avatar f tn Just be optimistic and don't focus yourself on your problems, indeed focus on how to make your life memorable and meaningful. I agree with April, find a group of friends who can accept the real you and who can help you. Don't be too sad... There is still HOPE. Just trust in God. When you are alone in your room, try to meditate and try to listen to some christian songs. It will help you enlighten your mind. Be yourself and be happy!
Avatar m tn I am at the end, I have been in treatment before, so that has put doubt in my head that I will not be able to get sober and stay sober. I have had periods of sobriety in my life. I want to try again. I need help. I am very desperate.
4822967 tn?1367660296 She is on suboxone to help but has messed up a fewtimes in the last fortnight. AS she goes to a clinic she gets random urines. As he has all takeaways, he is only tested once a month and always knows the same day!!! so he is "safe". He is a really nasty piece of works and will find anything he can on her for custody - spite more than really wanting 100%.
Avatar m tn who do i call? where do i go for help? what kinda help am i looking for? i am clueless and dont want to make matters worse.. from the few people i talk to they say rehab is the worst they only meet more drug people. i am so confused..any help is appreciated..he is21.
