Avatar f tn Struggling with this recent diagnosis and what may happen in the future. Is there anyone on this site from Northern Ireland, United Kingdom that could give any advice?

155701 tn?1230050701 This is the third time I've been through a major depression, but this one has hit me harder than the others. I just wish I had someone to talk to; my dad doesn't understand, he has that "just get over it" attitude; my best friends moved out of state and I don't have much family left. Sorry, just having a self-pity party. I'm just having such a hard time coping with this, this time around. I feel like I have no where to turn.
3264580 tn?1347062844 'I need help but I don't know how to come across it' The harsh truth? Help doesn't find you, you find help! In Northern Ireland finding counselling and therapy is like finding gold dust. Grab this opportuninty with both hands and any other opportunities that come your way. I am really sorry for what you're going through, this takes baby steps and a lot of willingness, determination and positivity but add me and I'll help as much as I can.
Avatar f tn How many of you ladies have/had postpartum depression and did you take medication for it or try and "ride-it-out"? What were your symptoms and how long did they last? Ive definitely been having bouts of depression and feelings of being overwhelmed - yesterday I was in Walmart and called hubby to ask about an item and he asked me to get something else and I suddenly felt overwhelmed and like I was going to cry! LOL.
Avatar n tn I am currently taking 60 mg. of Cymbalta (morning) and 2 grams of Xanax (morning & bedtime) per day. How can I wean off of these drugs and get help with my depression and panic/anxiety? I feel like I am losing my mind and life is passing me by. I don't want to go anywhere, socialize, or even visit with family due to the weight loss. I feel like these drugs have caused the weight gain over the years and I can't lose weight even with diet and exercise.
Avatar f tn I have no idea what to do at this point - I am living in Ireland at the moment and healthcare (especially mental) is poor, and that which is useful is expensive. I have seen several doctors and not one of them has diagnosed me with anything. I am currently on 30mg of Cipramil which doesn't appear to be very useful. I have a long complicated family history of sexual abuse, drug addictions, alcoholism, severe depression and suicide. I am, and have been for some time, suicidal.
Avatar n tn I have depression but I really need to get myself back to normal as I am in a real decision making phase, of should I stay or should I go. Background: I have been aware of having depression since about last November. I was put on Lexapro 10mg and I came out of it last Feb/March when I decided to move to London from Ireland where the bad job's market and my general life was getting me down. Now: I have been in London now since May.
Avatar f tn Is there any medication that is effective to use prior to my menstrual cycle that would alleviate anxiety and depression? I don't want to take medication on a daily basis, but need something during that time of the month.
Avatar n tn All grocery stores sell tylenol, benadryl (if you want to try it for sleep), immodium (if you don't have any yet), vitamin C, bananas, apples, eggs, cottage cheese (these are all foods that were listed on a top 10 list of foods to help with depression). Do you have a friend that can take you to the grocery store? If not, go to a store that offers a "carry-out service".
Avatar f tn Here is a link of our list of Drs compiled by the members here of their own drs- this is not meant as a referral, but as a means to help u research the drs-
Avatar f tn Anyway, when i went back to the doctor today about it he told me that its just depression!!! I am NOT depressed in any way shape or form!!.. admittedly i did start crying in his room, but that was because i felt so tired and achy, was frustrated my body won't do what i want it to do, and hormonal (my period due nxt week).
942898 tn?1246354921 Some use epsom salts in a hot/warm bath. Calcium/magnesium supplements help. A heating pad/blanket wrap will help. And exercise is very good - I know that doesnt sound good right now.....but get out and take a walk...start by going to get a paper or the steps....the potassium obatained from eating a few banana's is very good.....and remember - - obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off the goal.
Avatar m tn Apparantly people from Ireland or descendants of people from Ireland are much more likely to have this disease.The rest of the world has been eating wheat for 9000 years but the Irish only for 3000 so in terms of tolerance they are years behind the rest of the world.Totally agree with your comment about some doctors.I went to my Gp last week because I could not swallow.He did not even look at my throat but said it was just related to everything else that was going on.
Avatar f tn I went to the health shop and have got myself a bunch of things to help me sleep and to help with the legs that want to run marathons every night.
Avatar f tn In the end the top specialist come to see her and said it was in fact solely due to stress and depression. I explained we were meant to be flying to Ireland and I didn’t feel comfortable going, and I would appreciate it if he told my daughter this; however he said she would be fine after the medication he had given her and told her this! Bare in mind she is 29 years old and a very strong willed person when push comes to shove.
951454 tn?1246186608 I'm currently in Dublin, Ireland. So I'm bouncing between two different doctors and two labs. My original diagnosis was via a TSH test alone, Quest Diagnostics Sarasota, and on December 29th 2008 was recorded as: TSH 3rd Generation 7.57 H reference range 0.40 - 4.50 mIU/L I started on 25mcg of generic Levothyroxine in January, February I went to 50mcg and was re-tested in March in Dublin, Ireland with the following test results: TSH 3.61 mU/L reference range 0.45 - 3.
Avatar n tn So I will be completely upfront in saying that I have diagnosed Depression/Anxiety and that I (self diagnoses here) exhibit symptoms of hypochondria. The following details my risk/exposure: 20 sexual partners (all male, heterosexual) - I have genital herpes caused by HSV 1 use of condom EVERY TIME with 13 of them occasional use of condom with 3 < 20 sec.
Avatar n tn HI, welcome to the forum ! It is really good having a place to find support and finally being able to open about our story, we need it, we need a lot of help and we need to start taking care of ourselves .... you have already taken the best decision, now keep walking and taking the right steps, it can be done and you can do it. There is a healthier way to handle life than hiding behind some substance and it is never too late.
Avatar n tn I live in ireland and the closest anxiety resource for my age is about 2 hours away, along with that I would have to get my parents to bring me there as I am under 18!
Avatar n tn that should help in the energy department...Thomas can probably help you out better than I can, or at least he can point you in the right direction...
Avatar m tn and than the mental part kicks in from cravings to depression. depression can be alleviated with anti depressant and time. the opiates change out chemicals in our brain.....there are generally no seizures associated with opiate withdrawals...benzos use yes...xianix valuim etc...but I've never ever heard of anyone who has died from jumping cold....if you look down at the bottom of page there is the Thomas recipe for really really helps.
Avatar n tn He has thought about having the PE tubes put back in and giving it a little longer this time to see if they will help. We are both scared and upset and have no idea what to do at this point. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Is there any other treatment at all for this disorder??
Avatar m tn I got started on pain meds for chronic back pain, but I would trade the meds for the pain. Please help me with some good advice. Thanks much.
Avatar f tn Hello, I live in the UK and belong to Depression Alliance who have support groups. I don't know if there is anything similar in Ireland. You can ask your doctor's surgery if they know of any support groups, or your local library may have notices about help. I think you will find there is help out there, but you have to look for it yourself I am afraid. I have never hidden my illness from anyone. I am not ashamed of it.
Avatar f tn i know this was a lot i wrote, but i'm in a sad/scary place and i want help. i want to get out but i have no idea how to do it. i feel like i'm definitely regressing, now that i've succumbed to the idea that only meds will help me. my old therapist was *the bomb* (lol) but i thought i needed meds. now my new therapist ***** and the psychiatrist is a jerk, and i'm scared of medication. What am I supposed to do??? I NEED ADVICE. PLEASE. THANK YOU.
Avatar n tn The nights are the worse for me ,I get up and move around and that seems to help to. I know the feeling of depression for 6 months I was like that till I went to seek help else where.Try to talk to your Dr and hope he listens to you .pt helps it hurts but I know I have to move it to get better.
372778 tn?1201930643 I havent seen our town mall in 2 years. I had to cancel going to college and cant get a job to help out my family. I cant hang out with friends, visit family members..go out shopping, eat at restaurants..I am not able to do anything I want to, even go for walks with my dog or car rides with my family. Even having friends over is really hard...which is why Ive lost most of my friends.
Avatar n tn my eye doctor told me it was due to mild allergies and prescribed eye drops which didnt help in the least so i turned to over the counter allergy medicine which hasn't helped either (so i dont think it's allergies) and in the last 3 weeks not only are my eyelids itchy but when i wake up in the morning my upper eye lids are bright red and swelled up so bad that its embarassing!!!!
Avatar m tn I also suggest talking to your wife and seeing a psychologist. You need some help to shake the depression you are in. Depression is a serious issue and you need some help to get out of it. You CAN make it and there IS a light at the end of the tunnel.
