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 f tn I'm in the Houston Tx area. I'm having episodes off rage, burst of energy that immediately folliw depression/irritability. I'm a recovering addict with a mental illness who can't afford help. I sobered myself up but life is very hard to manage, even after 7 yrs. I've taken anxiety/depression meds, usually makes it worse. I hate taking things anyhoo being an addict. Everyone tells me it's most likely necessary.
Avatar f tn I have suffered for 10 years with paresthesias, dysthesias, weakness, fatigue, memory loss and now blurred vision. I have been diagnosed with everything from Lyme disease (later UN diagnosed), RSD, "I don't know, take this pill" to depression. I had Parvo b19 in 1996 and one MD thought that explained my waxing and waning symptoms. I had an MRI and LP in 2003 and was told both were normal.
Avatar f tn I know that some of the treatments can cause depression, suicidal ideation, etc. I have a history of depression. In 1997, I was tested for hepatitis C. I am positive. The doctor told me I had 2 to 5 years to live and to get my things in order. I had a child in school. I was devastated. I think all of us with this chronic illness have encountered depression. My question is this: can a doctor refuse to allow treatment because of a history of (controlled) depression?
Avatar m tn wow it would be nice to be a kid again. we need to have those wonderful memories. I am in severe depression. you might check with your doctor. sounds like you miss your mom. think of these thoughts as wonderful memories. you just brought back some precious memories from my mom and dad. they are both deceased.
603509 tn?1220307910 I jumped on fastin from a oriental doctor in Houston and I went down to 120 in 6 weeks. My first child came when I was 19. I started out at 120 pounds with her. My labor weight at 40 1/2 weeks was 174! I had so many issues in life that I needed the food to comfort me. As time went on about 1 yr. later it got worse. I would eat it all the time. It would replace most of my major meals during the day it seemed. Because I had to 'have it to feel better'...
Avatar f tn You cannot continue to starve or go without meds. There must be some scheme to help people like you surely? I cannot believe in this day and age people are left to starve. You have a computer, so you are in touch with people like us. See if you can find help? Does your doctor's practice not have volunteers who help people like you? Here the chemists also deliver meds to housebound people. I think there must be some way you can get your meds too? Have you looked into this?
Avatar n tn I heard about a drug called SaMe could help with depression, anyone have any expeience with this?
Avatar m tn Can anyone please tell me if they know of the best Dr. to see in Houston Texas for his diagnosis. And when is a good time to decide when surgery is necessary. And can someone please give me some advice on how to comfort him, he tells me " I don't understand what he is going through", I try to be in his shoes but I guess I cant seem to say the right things to him or even know how to comfort him. Please give me some advice!
Avatar f tn GET OUT before you and your kids, who definitely deserve better than what they are in now, are stuck by the lies and deception of the drug he will quickly trap you in. Find help. It is available!!! Good Luck!!! You and your kids will be in my prayers. Keep in mind when you decide what you are going to do, Your kids did not ask nor deserve to have to be raised in this ****. It is not fair to them.
Avatar n tn I bet it would help you to learn how detach from the emotional entanglement of being in a close relationship with an alcoholic/addict. It will help you learn to live a happy fulfilling life that doesnt revolve around your addict. Im no expert but alot of times the co-addicts "addiction" is the addicts behavior. I hope the best for you and your family. I hope your bro gets the help. Hope.
Avatar f tn Now, I'm hearing from others in the area, Dr. Fox only relies on TSH and this of course, worries me. I've heard this my entire life!!! I've heard great things about Dr. Vivian Rodguez in Houston, but I do not believe she is taking new patients. My question: I'm not sure you can recommend, but I want a doctor that will LISTEN to my complaints. My main complaint is severe fatigue. The Armour hasn't seemed to make ANY difference.
Avatar n tn My doctor had prescribed antidepressants (Prozac) to help with the depression and anxiety. The drug did help with the depression and gave me more energy, however, my anxiety levels seemed to increase - I often felt like I was jumping out of my skin!! I also started to experience breathlessness. I decided after a few months to stop taking the medication, however, after 5 days withdrawal I couldn't sleep and was suffering from palpitations, agitation, dizziness and problems concentrating.
98523 tn?1322078246 There are county hospitals that are there to help you. One of the best hospitals we have in Houston is a county hospital. Be careful who you take information and guidance from, especially online.
Avatar f tn First of all, I am a 34 year old female who is a long time sufferer of depression. I have been experiencing pressure headaches in the occipital lobe for a long time now. The headaches were sporadic and not too bothersome before. Lately I have been experiencing the on a daily basis and have kept a short diary of them. The pain varies from like pressure throbbing, to sometimes feeling like there is a string being pulled through my brain and skull in the same area.

Avatar n tn I also experience these weird pains in my head that come for about a second and then go and come back again every 10minutes or so. These pains are in 1 area in the back of my head in about a 1 square inch area.. Any ideas???
Avatar n tn I'm sorry that I can't answer your question, but if you give me some info, I might be able to help steer you in the right direction. Sorry all this is happening to you.
Avatar f tn If I had an intractable problem, as your father does, this would certainly be worth considering You could call them, and see if they have a specialist(s) in this field, which I would think they do, as they are a renowned world class medical facility. MD Anderson in Houston is also a top hospital, as is the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. I do hope you get some constructive advice soon and your father's problem can be alleviated. Take care, Liz.
Avatar n tn I have may episodes just like that the very last one I had was last week and I passed out and could not talk nor could I move any of my body everything began to come back slowly however wevery time I get theses episodes they seem to be getting worse than the last one. My Dr. keeps telling me that its all in my head and that I suffer from depression and the physchologist says that I am very mentally sound.
Avatar n tn That being said, I couldn't help but to comment on some of the negative emotions people are expressing in these posts. Being "extremely worried" or "scared as hell" or "panicked" are not good responses to any of your problems, even if the problems themselves are very real. That type of thinking is extremely degenerative and counterproductive. As a semi-recovered hypochondriac I can tell you that these emotions only lead to more symptoms.
Avatar n tn in the last two weeks i have had three blood vessels just pop in my fingers. i was not doing anything out of the ordinary. what could be causing this? should there be a cause for concern?
Avatar n tn A friend drove me three hours away to get my copies, from the hospital, which saved time, in the long run. I would like to know what some of ya'll take for pain and help for sleeping. DeniseMarie I sent you a post on front page. Well, I am looking out the window and it is a beautiful day, I think I might try some work in my flower bed. My grandmother believes everyone should get a couple of healthy sunshine a day. And, she is 87, has never been sick and still kicking.
287246 tn?1318573663 You see Michele, that is one of the things that the Bible says will happen in the last days , families will be divided, look for it in the Bible. It tells us that and we know that some of those things are coming to pass. We are not supposed to be jealous of one another in this life, nor are we supposed to be envious, but right now that is one of the things that I am facing is being envious of people who have something in their life I don’t have any more.
Avatar f tn I told her no but if she did not want me to pass out we should leave. I could not write my check I was shaking so bad. she rolled her eyes in the back of her head and did it. I had signed it. she left me standing there knowing I was about to pass out. I walked out to the truck and I was so afraid I was going to pass out or fall. oh the night before i had been up all night going to the bathroom.
Avatar f tn You can kick this habit and will come out stronger and will find other methods to help with the pain - It's beautiful weather today in Houston and b4 I got on the vicodin, even with the fibro, on a day like today I would have found a reason to be outside no matter what, but today I won't, because I'm still adjusting, but I want to be outside which is a change for me as I haven't felt that way for over a year. Best of luck girl and stay strong!

Avatar f tn no one that i had ever really loved, had left me before. after i took care of everyone else and their pain, i basically collapsed...depression set in and took control. i became physically ill...unable to function. i stayed in my pajamas most of the time and only left the house when i absolutely HAD to...but then i came home, shucked the clothes...and back into the jammies. thank God that i didnt work and that my boys were grown. i could still be like this...16 months later...
