Common Questions and Answers about Depression help melbourne


1149087 tn?1415320149 my question now is if anyone here has any experience or knowledge regarding people with longstanding recurrent major depression who need to take a disease modifying medication? i'm 34 years old and have suffered from recurrent major depressive episodes since i was 23.
1149087 tn?1415320149 From what you describe you could also use someone who is knowledgable about MS patients and depression. Depression is very common among us, and the reasons can be varied - physical, chemical or situational. Don't delay in seeking treatment because it is hard to resolve on your own. I speak from my own personal experiences.
1810386 tn?1405553177 Hi!! I think you're doing great! What a taper is designed to do is slowly reduce so that your body has time to adjust to the reduction before dropping again. You may be at a point where you are ready to stop, because the taper is now causing WDs that won't go away until you stop completely. When it's just dragging out the misery, it's time to stop. Do you feel ready? I'm not really experienced with brain zaps. If I had them during WD, I didn't know it.
Avatar f tn You might look into taking some multivitamins, L-Tyrosine, etc. to help out your mental alertness. Could be just mental for me, but they seem to help.
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 Regardless of the cause, it needs addressed (as does the anxiety for sure). A lot of times just treating the anxiety will help the depression a lot. It's good to see you are open minded about treatment options, that's a good thing. Not everyone qualifies for an inpatient stay for management of depression and anxiety, but I think contacting the above facility that B found for you is a great place to start! Give them a call for sure...
Avatar f tn I need answers and every one that i see isn't willing to help. I feel 16 going on 40. I'm so on edge, really over it. I need help - is there anyone out there that i can chat to? I don't know whats going on and i'm scared :( I can't go to the toilet and the only thing i pass is mucus. My anus is sore, my eyes are heavy, i can't concentrate. Living this way is unrealistic. I'm about ready to give up. My white blood cells are going down now. No one will do tests. Please someone help me..
1460021 tn?1445739558 Remembering how good i had it...a full time awesome apartment right in Melbourne. I blew it...lost it all. My addiction to nurofen plus (about 30 pills a day) had taken over along with depression and anxiety...i lost my job, boyfriend (not that he was supportive in any sort of way shape or form...not to mention he still owes me money that I'm guessing i'll never ever see) and had to move back to my home town two hours out of Melbourne...with my mother.
Avatar f tn Fighting Depression Fighting Depression part 2 Fighting Depression part 3 Fighting Depression part 4 (simplicity) Fighting Impatience, Stress, and Fear I posted these on this forum. They are all four on here but they are scattered between the first and second pages.

5524415 tn?1372335990 resentful and irritable. essential oils to fight depression and strengthen energy are basil, bergamot, clary sage, geranium, lavender, lemon verbena and ylang ylang. At night, oils such as marjoram, lavender, neroli, orange, chamomile, sandalwood and rose can alleviate fearfulness and prepares the body for a good sleep.... Suboxone does that pretty well for me, thanks...
1460021 tn?1445739558 anything. Depression has been hitting again after the drop from 4mg to 3mg (suboxone). I'm already on anti depressants and Xanax. Ahhh the rollercoaster of addiction. Feeling so lost and alone at times. My heart hurts. Feeling like my insides and emotions have been scooped out and there's nothing left but that numb feeling. Sometimes even breathing feels like a struggle.
1460021 tn?1445739558 It was just like a mood i used to get in before i got treatment for depression...and all of you out there know what that's like.
1032715 tn?1315987834 Hot baths will help with the muscle cramps. The Doxylmine succinate will help with sleep - as will the valium. It will also help with the restlessness. Keep posting, there are lots of people here to support you in your recovery. Congratulations!
Avatar n tn Depression is a symptom of thyroid problems and many people have doctors who fail to understand that correct levels of thyroid can help prevent depression which then mean no anti-depressants. Do you take any thyroid replacement medication? What was your TSH before starting the Effexor. It is important to keep it in perspective.
1460021 tn?1445739558 I never knew what career i wanted so i just stuck with retail...then my addiction/depression/anxiety all happened and it made me realise i wanted to help people (hence my screen name "paying it forward"). I don't want a superficial job...i want to do something that means something...that helps people and going through all of this myself helped me realise it. I do believe everything happens for a reason and I'm pretty sure im going through it for the greater purpose of helping others.

I am so worried , 2 weeks ago I was bouncing out of bed , eating well , happy and 2 weeks on I do not eat much I feel sickly .
Avatar m tn Therapists are trained to handle these situations and help to give you coping skills and also help you to let go of the past and live in the now. Like you, I resented my mom for what I convinced as a crappy childhood. I too used drugs to try to deal with it, or not deal with it and the only person I hurt was me. Nothing got resolved with that. I did go into therapy after I got clean and it really helped me to understand my feelings and to forgive her.
Avatar n tn This is probably the 2nd or 3rd time it has appeared, usually disappearing after a couple day's, then reappearing 1-3 months later. Can someone help me please, it is causing me depression because im so worried to what it may be and how serious.
Avatar f tn 70) So now that I know I shouldn't have any SOY and that it's recommended to stay close to a gluten free diet I have made the adjustments and hoping with the combination of knowing what foods to avoid, which ones are healthy and taking NP thyroid I can begin to lose some of this weight but is there anything out there that can help increase my energy levels and help with my back and leg pain? Any supplements or exercises? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn Hashimoto's is an autoimmune disease causing hypothyroidism. Can't help you about the u/s. Why are they making you wait b/c of no insurance? What does that have to do with when you get in? It usually takes a long time to get into endos, but don't know why having no insurance would make a difference. If your dr doesn't think you need meds yet, you are probably okay without it. Do you have any idea what any of your levels are? If so post them for us and someone will help you decipher them.
1142731 tn?1335095649 My GP told me I am going to have another MRI done and be referred, depending on these results to the MS Clinic at the major Hospital in Melbourne. So I am praying for answers as my body just feels so unwell. I am so tired of feeling depressed and at times suicidal because of my fustration of being unwell so much. Whilst I dont want to have MS, I actually do to want to have a positive result so I can get some treatment. Then if it negative what will I do next; that is my biggest fear.
Avatar f tn Hi Alisheva, Welcome. I am so very sorry I missed your post. Please except my apology. It's not a normal practice. I've been having a horrid new flare and I guess I haven't been as diligent. Again Sorry! I don't have bilateral burning pain - I do have sciatica that can get pretty nasty in one leg and to a lesser degree in the other. I have SI Joint Dysfunction. Have you had your SIJ examined by someone that specializes in SIJ? I took me years to find a DX.
219241 tn?1413541365 I know from experience that here in Melbourne, Australia....Doctors will NOT prescribe Cytomel (or T3 med) unless you are literally dying. Australia banned the dessicated hormone and are sooooooooooo totally against any form of T3 med. To see a Compounding Doc here to get compounded meds, you have to pay $195 up front with NO rebate from Medicare for EACH consultation and then you pay $120 for a months supply of compounded (in Melbourne). Not much good if you arent working...
219241 tn?1413541365 I told him these were done 25 days ago and shouldn't we get new tests now, as I am starting to notice the hypo symptoms starting again..especially depression...BIG depression. He said, oh no we'll just see how you go along for the next 3 to 4 months...I was astounded. I had warned him that I didn't want to go down to 100 mcgs as I go too hypo, but obviously 114.3mcgs makes me HYPER. He said that was the better dose for me. I did mention maybe going to 105mcgs but he dismissed that.
Avatar f tn I'm hoping someone has experienced the same symptoms and can help. For about five years now I have suffered from abdominal pain, bloating, spasms, fatigue and skin rashes. The gastrointestinologist diagnosed me with IBS. I have tried high fiber diets, herbs, acupuncture all of which offered some relief but never got rid of the symptoms. I don't have the energy I used to and lifting and stretching seem to make the pain and bloating worse.
616482 tn?1223608450 It is frustrating as I can't seem to get a grip on any given day and I feel like I'm running out of options. I am having trouble finding a Bipoar specialist in Melbourne but really need one...
