Avatar f tn to talk to people with the same depression illness as me?
Avatar m tn Are there any support groups that meet for Chiari survivors, sufferers in Knoxville, TN. My daughter had decompression surgery a year and a half ago. 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.
Avatar f tn LOSING WEIGHT, LOSS OF HAIR, DEPRESSION, CAN'T SLEEP. WHAT TO DO AND WHERE TO GO FOR HELP. I'VE HAD NO ONE TO TALK TO ABOUT THIS AND MY DOCTOR IS OF NO HELP. JUST GIVES ME MORE AND MORE MEDS. CAN ANYONE GIVE ME ADVICE AS HOW TO DEAL WITH ALL OF THE SYMPTOMS. ANY WORDS OF ADVICE WOULD BE HELPFUL. WANT TO JUST QUIT THE TREATMENTS. WHAT TO DO WHAT TO DO?????
Avatar f tn DOES ANYONE KNOW OF ANY SUPPORT GROUPS FOR HEP-C VIRUS AND PEOPLE GOING THROUGH THE TREATMENTS IN LEAVENWORTH KANSAS. GOING THROUGH TREATMENT 6 MONTHS INTO IT AND HAVING A VERY ROUGH TIME WITH THE DEPRESSION OF THE MEDICATIONS. IN NEED OF A SUPPORT GROUP.
672839 tn?1305796547 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.
1468734 tn?1316539497 Thats why I was wondering if any one knew of any support group meetings in my area that area like AA or NA only for depression. The only groups I found so far meet only twice a month. I need way more. Would any one know of such a meeting or organization in the Flint, Genesee county Michigan area that might fit the bill? Any how, my prayers are with you all for I know how you feel. Been to the bottom many times. Black, all consuming and empty. Bless each and every one.

Avatar f tn There are support groups in your case. I am sure he might blame it on yhe pregnancy but still there is help. You can feel better just look for help and support from your support network. If it helps you are not alone. I find my self crying for nothing. Though, I am noy in the point that I feel overwhelmed. Best wishes for you and your little one. I hope you overcome this soon. Tell yout dr. And ask for support groups.
Avatar m tn Cognitive behavioral therapy, psychotherapy, joining support groups may help. You should try interacting with people and enhance your social circle. Seeking the opinion of an experienced psychiatrist will be helpful. Take care and best wishes!
Avatar n tn Although I am happy when I am with her, I couldn't help feeling lost at times. There has been too many changes in my life last year. I moved to a new country, quit my job, and has recently had a baby. I am depressive at times, and I feel that all of these changes overwhelmes me. I was a Bulimic for 6 years, until my daughter comes along when I feel the need to take care of myself more. Please Advice.
Avatar f tn The American Cancer Society has a wealth of programs that could lead you to someone to actually talk to and help you find some coping tools. Their are even groups that you can join so you can talk with others that have been in the same shoes. For me...I've had to change my diet and adapt a exercise routine that fits my schedule. I learned that keeping things inside only fester and get worse. There are also sites on MH that help with depression and many others to talk to. Please...
9023883 tn?1402946975 Has anyone had PPD with prenatal depression? Its so bad that if I wasn't pregnant I'd probably not be here...if you get what I mean. I have a 6 month old and have had thoughts of giving both babies to dh and just going. I wouldn't really do that but some days are just a lot harder and I get so upsetm crying constantly and my DD seems to hate me.
Avatar n tn Im more worried. I spoke to my mom last night and I can hear the depression in her voice. I dont know what to do to cheer her up. Of course, given the circumstances, you cant blame her for how she is feeling. Also, no one can tell her how to feel - those feelings are her own and she is entitled to them. BUT, Im afraid she might be giving up. True, the blood clots are a complication - but theyre a relatively minor complication which are relatively easy to fix.
Avatar f tn Yep and thats why there is these groups there are alsi ither groups out there that you can join the important thing is that dispite the feeling of being alone and not wanting to do anything... we need ti push ourselves out the door to do something every day. It helps when you have a frirnd that lives near by. One if my best friends was my neighbor 5years ago. I was pregnant with my daughter and she would call me over every day and would not take no ad an answer. She has moved 1.
Avatar m tn There is never one clear cut way to completely rid yourself of depression. Depression is hard. My father had it and my boyfriend currently suffers from it. First you need supportive people in your friend group or family that will be there for you and understand where you are coming from. That can be of huge help. Meds also do help but you have to find the right one for you that wont give you a bunch of side effects. Lastly you have to ackowledge your feelings.
Avatar f tn I am 35 weeks and 5 days pregnant, here lately I have been dealing with a bad bout of depression! And I just don't know what to do!!! I am married, but I just feel so alone all the time!! My husband is a coach so this time of year is always crazy for us but it's just affecting me sssssoooo much right now!! I am alone all the time and I feel like I have no one to talk to or no where to turn!! My husband's just tells me to stop or ignores me.
Avatar m tn He can seriously mean what he says and hopes by saying it out loud someone will help him. He needs help. He maybe depressed, bipolar or have social anxiety... or who knows what else, a doctor can properly diagnoise him. See if you can maybe get a one on one time with him alone, just the two of you and see if you can convince him to possibly go see a doctor. if not then just keep any eye on him and help him the best you know how. you can't make him get help. it has to be his choice.
Avatar m tn hey all, I have a friend who is showing some weird signs or 'symptoms' im not exactly sure if they are depression related but i just need some clarification if possible. He tends to be angry with me alot of the time even though we are best mates and like a brother to me.
1874452 tn?1349638377 Hi, my name is Lynn and I have had depression for many years, but once I changed my way of thinking, I changed my way of life. I went for psychotherapy sessions and emotional support groups. They can help you change your negative thinking into something positive. You can build self confidence and motivation in yourself. Also taking antidepressant medication can help. See a psychiatriast and ask him about psychotherapy. It really does help.
Avatar f tn Trying to cope with depression from stopping pills.Its so hard to get out of bed on my days off or get much acccomplished. It hard to see all the tests & meds for tests my husband has to do for his cancer. Went to Dr today & got AD ( wellbutrin). Has anyone tried this & did it help? Sorry to keep posting but its the only thing that helps. I just wish I would wake up & he would be fine.Is it normal to be this depressed? I was'nt this bad when my parents died.
Avatar f tn if so, I would ask the leaders of these groups - maybe one of them might be able to help you. But, depression at seven years of age is also possible - is there any family history of mood disorders? If so, it might be wise to see your family doctor. Perhaps others on this board might have additional comments or advice ...
Avatar f tn these meds can make a huge difference in peoples lives and for many will help them get through treatment since the tx drugs can cause depression.
647391 tn?1275020233 If you have a mental health agency where you live-they may have support groups for people with depression and/or bipolar; other mental health issues. Doctors sometimes have educational classes for diabetics. Health departments have parenting classes. On & on. Sorry to go on so long. This is to show you that going in and just 'babbling' is OK if that's what you need. Often-as I LISTEN to MYSELF talk-I end up with these 'Ah-HA!' moments where I actually see my problem clearly for myself.
Avatar f tn Try going out a walk or go shopping for baby things. I have depression too during this pregnancy and a ftm and single so i know how it feels. If i go out and do something evem if its just for an hour.. it makes me feel pregnant. How many weeks are u pregnant?
Avatar f tn Trying to make friends with old friends who have moved on to other groups of friends. They make me feel welcom when they actually hang out with me, but I think the reality is that they are just using me. They are not my real friends. Now what? I don't know who else to go to because they are all I really have...even though its not real. I feel disgusted that I try so hard to keep these friendships now that I know their real characteristics towards me. Or maybe I'm completely wrong, yeah right..
