11305938 tn?1418002133 What books have you read on MS that you would recommend? I am a huge reader and when I got diagnosed I bought some books online.
Avatar m tn Well, if you're feeling very depressed and feeling very anxious. As for medication, you should first try therapy and lifestyle changes if you're able. Medication comes in if other means have failed and your life is unmanageable. This is basically any form of medicine -- you do the least invasive first and if it doesn't work then you look into the more invasive. Good luck.
Avatar f tn Girl I haven't had a job since July. My bf just got a new job where he works 21 days on and 7 days off so im always here by myself. Im not depressed but I do get lonely and cry cause i miss him. U just have to be positive and u dont have to much longer till ur bundle of joy is here.
Avatar n tn But coming from someone who's been there ask ur dr to refer you to a therapist to help deal with your depression. I promise talking to a professional will help. Plus they help you mentally stabilize to be ready for the baby.
Avatar f tn also try taking up a hobby that will help keep you distracted. if it's not depression it's probably just lack of activity you're experiencing making you feel drained. you could pick up a few pregnancy books and start reading those of the series that's what I did. I also picked up knitting and started making a baby blanket that helps a lot too. and I try to walk at least one block everyday.
Avatar m tn that is causing the depression. Since you have not mentioned what has led to your depression it is hard to say what might help. There are natural substances such as St. Johns Wart that have some success. Check with your local GNC and ask about natural remedies that help restore dopamine and serotonin levels in the brain. Exercise is a must. The harder you can push yourself the better. This will produce endorphines in the brain which lift your mood.
Avatar n tn since the past one year I have been taking medicines for depression viz, Serta- 50 mg (1-0-1) and Sizodon plus (0-0-1), but still not feeling good. What should I do as my confidence level has gone down.
Avatar f tn I knew I needed help. I go to sleep and wake up at the same time, got help with pain so I could fall asleep. I have lost weight and exercise which helps me. I sought out a Doctor for the ddepression. I also got a counselor who specializes in Chronic Illness. We do hypnosis which has helped. I can put myself to sleep or de stress when needed. I also have someone to talk things through with. Depression does not like to be treated. It is inertia.
Avatar f tn depression is wide and vary s first take time out do something you like take small trip to a park relax focus elsewhere before coming back at it he wants time and space give it he may feel smothered or just antisocial im recovering so it blurry to remember those days but step back but watch and get outside help if sighns start appearing no grooming or self care withdraws from public withdraws from family sleeps allot these are signs of normal depression but also signs its time to get inter
1458597 tn?1286376717 You are having emotions that are typical of depression. Depression robs you of positive feeling and depresses the good feelings we can get out of life. With treatment you can find your way back to your usual self so stick with what your doctor prrescribes and know you are not alone with this illness. Take care.
Avatar m tn hi. i am 23 and unemployed since a long time. due to this and many other problems i face a lot of physical abuse at home. i cry continuously for hours & pee in my pants when i'm being beaten. i have also cut my self several times & tried suicide. i had to seek medical help but i was beaten for that too. how i do i overcome these crying spells & come out of depression. nothing at my house will change, everyone will continue to beat me.
Avatar n tn Wow, I guess it would take time for you to get back in the flow of your normal routine again. Try to continue to talk it out like with your friends/family and that god for this site. Do you like to do crossword puzzles, word search, read, anything to occupy your mind. I will have mine April 20th. I am scared but I am trying to look at it as a positive. NO MOre heavy bleeding for days and days and days. limiting physical activity. I really am frighten.
647391 tn?1275020233 and changing- that I didn't believe in myself. I used education (reading books, researching on-line, talking to others) to help me decide what I needed and how to find that. Trust that everything in your life is working out perfectly. Ask yourself what you can learn from this. What do think your 'life lesson' is at this point. You are brave and you know more than you think you know! You just need to find that inside yourself and learn to honor your self!
Avatar n tn hi there , i have experienced many episodes of depression since i was 18 and it is getting harder the more i go older , now i am 32 and i guess when i reach 50 i will be completely lost in uncontrolled depression . i want to read some books about how to feel good or even comfortable about going old and how to defeat aging deep in your heart , any one can help ? thank you all a lot.......
684030 tn?1415615923 I 'm A avid readed and I love research.I put down the self help books a while back (not that I wouldn't read another one) but it would have to really good.. But really all I wanted to say was thanks....
Avatar m tn Someone close to me is battling depression. I'd known it for some time. I encouraged this person to reach out to professionals, but like me, there was a reluctance to do so. "It'll pass" he told me. Some time later, it was obvious to me that this person was still struggling so I brought up the idea of seeking help again. "It'll pass" he said. "It's okay to have a down day every once in a while isn't it" he added.
691724 tn?1230686244 I'm so sorry to read your story and what your daughter has endured. As a father, I can't imagine your rage, guilt and depression. You've made a great step by coming to this forum! I've never dealt with this issue, but there is a website that lists hundreds of books and articles on how to deal with child molestation. The site is:
Avatar m tn I just read your posting and I want to commend you for writing and asking for help. That takes a lot of courage. Living with depression makes you feel so isolated and alone. I want you to know that there are millions of people also suffering and it seems that putting on a 'good face' is something most do also. I kind of classify it as one of those 'silent diseases'. Nobody wants to talk about it and is/or may feel ashmed. In all honesty, I am the same.
Avatar f tn anyone so depressed that they think of hurting themselves or someone else. Can med help help, perhaps offer a link of known help that these people can search out? The fact that they found medhelp and tried finding help here is a start at least they want help, but if they feel that they can't find help even here I am so afraid of what the outcome will be for them.
Avatar n tn Purchase some books to help learn about my chronic symptoms before my next G.I. appt: 50 ways to relieve Heartburn,reflux and Ulcers No more heartburn Both by M.D. They offer tips for the natural way and what tests should have been done for a diagnosis. Do you have any that helped ?
Avatar n tn The hormones of pregnancy are a bear. Add to that the fact that you are changing everything about your life in a relatively short time, and anyone would have stress. The tiredness is a definite first-trimester issue (I used to almost literally pass out in the afternoon). A friend of mine would cry over news stories on the radio while she took a shower in the morning, when she was first pregnant.
Avatar f tn this 5-HTP is made from a African tree, and works with the brain serotonin, to eliminate depression and anxiety, and it's natural and without side effects, the one that I took is the quick release capsule, after a week I was feeling great, I hope my story can help so many people, no matter what is the cause of your depression and anxiety, you don't loose nothing with trying something natural, another thing is you can't combine antidepressants with 5-HTP, you have take either one.
3063937 tn?1352426455 We must not let this illness beat us. I have read many self help books, but they cannot beat depression. Only we can do that. I have been on many anti-depressants. No they do not cure,but they certainly make life worth living. Without them who knows where I would be now. I am old, but still fighting, and to tell the truth, I feel great at the moment. The depression hardly ever pokes its head up now. That is thanks to medication.
Avatar n tn if you read through alot of the past posts, it's the main thing people struggle with after the physical w/d's - the anxiety and the depression. Did that help to answer your question? And please, please don't ever feel like you can't post ANY kind of question! Or a 100 if you like!! That's what we're all here for - to help each other...
1551327 tn?1514049467 I'm glad your going to write about codependency and CBT. I have read a number of codependency books. They certainly help you to become aware of your behavior towards others and how you react. It is a challenging thing to master and a work in progress. As for CBT. I am very curious about this. Many Therapist that I have come across say they do CBT only to find out just do a very little.
Avatar n tn My darling husband decided to get us a hot tub (any day now)so I can de-stress and hopefully sleep better at night, but what else can I do? I don't think psychotherapy will help much, although I do read a lot of Christian books and books on relaxation. Does anyone know what caused this and what I can do? People are supportive but just don't understand. It's not like there's a switch where one can turn it on and off.
388261 tn?1215403444 Then you start to pay attention to self help fuks, ala Dr. Phil. You start buying addiction books by the ten’s, you start to see a shrink. They tell you to be strong and take this pill. Prozac, Paxil, Xanax. Everything will be ok if you have self affirmation. “Look inside of yourself and let it gooooooo”……the shrink who rips you to pieces to try to get to the bottom of your “issues”…fuk them all. It comes down to this: Our stories are endless.
885961 tn?1249583403 Panic is another form of it, a nasty, shock trooper type. I must say to you that religion does not and will not help with depression or anxiety. One major reason for me saying that is that the Bible itself is filled with predictions of horror and destruction and the most dreadful creatures whoever wrote it could imagine. It's not a peaceful book I'm afraid and I'd suggest you read other books that are peaceful and harmless.
Avatar m tn I think your friend needs help too. Maybe you two could go to the hospital together?? If your parents won't help you get support, get it yourself. People can help you work through the other issues too. This is not a game and can get serious and dangerous very fast. Growing up people at school spoke of suicide and one shot himself while another jumped. Thinking and talking about suicide are big warning signs.
