Depression help groups online

Common Questions and Answers about Depression help groups online


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.

Avatar m tn However, if none of these are appealing, you can try support groups [online or in person], acupuncture, massage therapy, supplements, more holistic approaches to rebalancing the body. I hoped this helped- Take care!!
621217 tn?1289012687 I don't know of any online support groups but I have some other ideas. First off, I would recommend seeing a therapist. Being able to talk about what is going on is more helpful then you would think. Also an antidepressant might help with some of the depression you are feeling. Also, there are still things out there to try. I know that I have given you a couple of ideas, so I don't think it's true that "no one seems to have any answers.
Avatar f tn Sometimes just going to a coffee shop and sitting there for a bit is helpful just to be surrounded be other people. I have also heard of support groups online and also in communities for pregnant women aswell as for mommies with newborns. If things get really rough dont be embarrassed or ashamed to seek professional help from a therapist or counselor.

Avatar n tn He has trouble relating to people and is very uncomfortable in groups. But yet the way he dresses make him stand out in a crowd. Long hair, Black clothes, Dog collar jewelery etc. He's happy most times in his room paiting or working on his computer. The room is full of books about Merlin and ancient worlds of the middle ages. He has a steady girl friend who will graduate from College this spring. He has his own car and we do provide gas and spending money of just $60.00 a week.
Avatar n tn I live in Bend,Oregon and feel I need to attend a support group either for Interferon-Ribavirin therapy users or HCV positive(chronic) patients. Do you know if there are support groups in my area???? I have very limited resources and no PC of my own, I am using a friends today to contact you. Any advice of help you could offer would be sincerely appreciated!!! Thank you for your time and consideration, T.

Avatar m tn hi there, i have borderline personality disorder and bi plolar disorder. There is a online dbt class which you can look up. just type in google online dbt class. i joined one which is from yahoo. i found myself that i need someone to teach it to me.
Avatar f tn I have read that Cognitive Therapy can help with this condition, but I am not yet ready to approach my GP to request a referral as I get tearful even thinking about it and it would be an awful waste of their time for me to take such help right now- I want to connect to other people who suffer the same condition and hear their experiences etc. Are there any online support groups specifically for this condition?
Avatar f tn Just amke sure you have some sort of support system in place to help you deal with it should it arise again. Don't be afraid to get temporary relief from an antidepressant. That would not be my first choice, but sometimes we have exausted all other avenues and it would be beneficial to use medicine.
5864500 tn?1380893197 I'm really proud of you for coming to Medhelp for help with your addictions and your depression. But until you are as open and honest with your doctors about what's really going on, you can't find the answers that will help you to master your condition. Please know, that your life has become unmanageable and there is help for you. Please pick up a Big Book at an AA meeting, and read it. Take the first step to getting your life back. You don't have to live like this.
Avatar m tn Do what you have to do for this - online support groups, offline support groups, someone to talk to online and offline - it could be a pastor or a friend or just... anyone who can be a good listener! (It's fully possible that the guy who runs a pub at the other side of the street would be a great listener as well as a man with high education and high rates pr 10-minute counseling session). I hope you find some great contacts here. Good luck!
Avatar n tn hi- i,m new to this forum. Can anybody tell me why the depression i feel whilst detoxing from tramadol is so severe when i am prescribed and take regular paxil for depression.
Avatar m tn Lastly, and most importantly, while online groups can certainly help us in some ways, and even give us a sense of support, it should NEVER be your only source of help or support and should NEVER be used in place of real, in person support or help. There's no substitution for that in person connection you will have with other people, the eye contact, physical touch, etc.
Avatar f tn I would like to go to therapy, but he says I am crazy and need medication. I feel that he is escaping realty with these online friendships (btw, he never mentioned me or my son in any messages and). He claims the interaction was public, however it was within a private thread that the public could not see. Am I wrong to be upset?
Avatar f tn I'm also stressed with classes. I'm currently trying to switch them to online but my professor and academic advisor isn't responding. Honestly I feel like dropping out of college bc I feel so overwhelmed. I also am thinking of moving back home. I just want to quit. I just needed to vent. Like I'm excited but I just feel so anxious and worried and I feel like that won't go away anytime soon. I'm so sad.
Avatar f tn Keep posting here on med help, go to a Dr and get a good physical. There are also online support groups. Can you identify anything in particular that could be upsetting you?
Avatar f tn I live in Canada so we have a program available to us called best beginnings where there are all sorts of resources and nurses who are trained to help in these cases. Look it up online and see if they can refer you to a similar outlet where you live. Also, try to source some local mommy groups before the baby comes so that you can establish some supportive connections now with women that will gladly invite you into their group.
Avatar n tn But I know there are resources out there everywhere and it wasn't just for teens. Search online for your area and put pregnancy help or pregnancy crisis center. The people who run these organizations will not look down on you. They are there because they care about what happens to you and your baby. And we are here for you anytime.

Avatar m tn Get a new doctor and have faith that it WILL get better. It's important that people who suffer from depression help and support each other. Some of the greatest heroes and artists were depressed. Please know that your family loves you and even ppl you don't know care about you.
419309 tn?1326506891 to the general public is an entirely different animal then clinical major depression. * Does depression always need chemical help? No it doesn't. First I think it is important to clarify which is medical depression vs the public's idea about what depression is. What depression is not" It is not feeling sad or disappointed when things don't go the way we want is life. Feeling sad or disappointed is an appropriate emotional response to life. What medical major depression is.
Avatar n tn hey gwh, i have taken prosac for depression , with great results. i had depression so bad it was scary. so my wife made take some of her prosac. i took it for a month and it took it all away. so i went to see my doc and he gave me a script.
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 I finally got to post!! I have been experiencing severe withdrawal/depression the last few days, so much that I have found myself crying on a few occasions, I have been feeling like there is no way out of this awful life style, and if I get close to being clean, I get scared when I think of leading a sober life..... I can't handle it anymore, I lie to everyone, I hurt everyone and I waste all my godamn money on drugs, what the hell is the point?
