140622 tn?1190102529 There is just no way for them to know, not doing them, but I would ask for and expect some help and understanding from them. MANY of us can NOT do our normal routines, sweeping a floor being a struggle! Now I'm mad (especially that 'therapist'!
Avatar f tn I am asking for family members experienced with handling a loved ones alcoholism/addiction here!Could you please post and describe how u sought help for urself,stopped the enabling,set limits with insane behaviors and regained ur self esteem?CrazyGerman needs all of your experience!Thank You!
Avatar f tn is there something out there that could help my family members understand what I'm going through better? I have tried explaining it, but some just don't seem to understand it. They get angry with me or tell me that I am "just being dumb". My husband is the worst about it, he gets so tired of having to do most of the shopping and such. Sometimes I think he thinks I'm doing this just to spite him. So if anyone has any advice or knows anything that can help. Is there a book? website?
Avatar f tn I also recommend that you speak with a trusted friends, counselor or someone from your religious denomination to help you sort out your feelings also, communication is key to all relationships, so speak with your family members one by one to clear any misunderstandings and return to a healty, happy home environment...

Avatar n tn If there is not any connection to the HCV, then probably none or very few of our members would have a similar experience within their families. I am also speaking about people that have been around their family members for probably 15 years or more....enough time for slowly developing symptoms to become apparent. As I have indicated, this pattern has only become noticable in the past five years. Comments????

Avatar f tn I talked to my doctor and got ativan for anxiety and some antidepressants. I also told a few friends and family members who all switched off taking care of my daughter when I was having difficulty.
Avatar f tn This is our first baby and we've always had such a close relationship until this profound sadness hit me like a ton of bricks! Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Avatar f tn I suffer from Major depression and I also know other's esp. in my family that suffer from Major Depression and/or Seasonal Depression. From my experience, Everyone is unique and while their are characteristics that some people with depression may have in common; there are also some characteristics or traits that are unique to that person. For example: some people with depression are happy to not be alone and appear happy when others are around.

199177 tn?1490502134 We are starting a group for the members that are interested and are into long term recovery . Why dont we start with telling everybody alittle about our addictions and our clean time .
Avatar n tn I have never suffererd a traumatic experience in my life, have no past or current family members that have depression, no one in my family is addicted to drugs or alcohol, and I had a great childhood. Regardless, at 23 when I was on top of the world, I was struck with very severe depression and anxiety for no reason at all. At least not for any reason that the psychiatrists could find. For whatever reason i just happen to have a malfuction in my brain that severly effects mood regulation.
Avatar f tn For just under a year I think I have been suffering from depression. I self harm, and have thought about suicide quite a bit. It used to be when my mum would go into these terrible mood swings and make me feel bad, and then I'd start. In may I got caught shoplifting, I was so disappointed in myself and so were my parents. A week after, my mum said she felt like we weren't a family, that the past 2 years we'd rarely done anything together, and she wanted to stay with my nana.
8264857 tn?1402102733 I don't have ptsd but I have anxiety and depression due to loss of family members. I totally think you are doing the right thing. Counseling and medication is what you need to be stable your baby. Just let the others talk. They don't matter only you and your Lil one do.
4971738 tn?1390568984 Are you taking any medication for your depression? I have extreme phobia/fear due to other family members and I can't handle the thought of being zombie out like they stay along with addictions and that terrifies me because I know the same could happen to me if I started taking any type of medication for a period of time. I know I'm not suppose to compare myself to them but when you have been in Satan's den, I'm sorry, that fear is a realistic one for me.
Avatar f tn Having other biological relatives with depression Having family members who have taken their own life Stressful life events, such as the death of a loved one Having a depressed mood as a youngster Illness, such as cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's or HIV/AIDS Long-term use of certain medications, such as some drugs used to control high blood pressure, sleeping pills or, occasionally, birth control pills Certain personality traits, such as having low self-esteem and being overly depende
Avatar f tn Okay, this isn’t any textbook daddy issue, I love my old friends and family and I can hug and kiss on the cheek old friends and family members, but I find it difficult to even shake hands with a stranger, and the idea of sex turns my stomach. I think of it as being… eugh, I don’t know. Something I should be interested in, but all those fluids and flailing limbs – EUGH! I don’t know why, but most physical intimacy, and increasingly, any emotional intimacy disgusts me.
Avatar f tn None of them suffer any real major severe form of depression. They take it for the lift, and because their family doctor (NOT a real psychiatrist) has prescribed it to them. My Psychiatrist once told me that Major Depression and Bi-polar dissorder are the MOST over diagnosed conditions on Earth. Reason being is that most of the times it is regular MD's and family doctors that write these prescriptons with absolutly no real knowledge of human Psychiatry!
Avatar f tn I hate speaking to people about my feelings because I'll just burst into tears even when they just bring up the topic. My family has seen my cuts already and I've made them cry plenty of times which makes me feel even more pain. I don't know what's wrong with me I just want to be okay but I don't have energy to do anything anymore . I used to love to dance now it's just a thing I NEED to do. I've gain 13 pounds and I hate how I look. I feel sad all the time.
147426 tn?1317269232 That all changed when I came to this wonderful forum. Had it not been for all of you wonderful family members I'm not sure I would be alive today. A very special thanks to Quix. She personally took me under her wing as she does so many of you, and walked me through everything that was happening to my body and why. When I finally got my diagnosis of MS in August of 2007 it was guess who that came to my side? My dear friend Quix.

Avatar f tn Anyway, as the months past my Dad slowly got better, Now if you did not know him, you probably would not think anything was wrong with him as he looks great, takes pride in his appearance and he still wants to achieve things in his life.
202665 tn?1248810333 I have had Fibromyalgia for over 15 years and been in therapy off/on for longer than that. I've been treated for depression all of these years and only gotten worse over time. Let me clarify that it is the BPD behavior that has gotten worse, not the depression. The depression is about the same, it has never been totally controlled with any of the medications that I have been given over the years. And..... I've been given plenty of varieties and dosages.
