Depression help orange county

Common Questions and Answers about Depression help orange county


Avatar m tn Dear Orisan, I would like to help. I think this week you should either go to the county mental health clinic, or go to the hospital emergency room, or go see any doctor as soon as you possibly can. What you have is an ordinary mental disorder, I think it's called paranoia, which some people do get that, rather a lot of folks suffer with it. It causes them to think someone is "out to get them.
Avatar n tn Sandy mcdaniel has some really good books for help with parenting. she writes a column for the orange county register. i have found it helpful and am starting to implement her techniques with my son. also, talk to the grandparents. if he spends time at their house alone and they give him everything he wants, this will not help you at your house. you need a united front on the boundaries issue.
Avatar n tn Did I get that right? What must that make you feel like? If you lived in the Orange County, SoCal area, I'd refer you to my doctor and your life would immediately change for the better. Even if he referred you to a specialist, just having him as your family doctor would make a huge difference. Anyway, didn't mean to ramble on like this, but I neded to tell someone what I've been going through this summer. Let me know how you're doing. I can at least listen and I certainly care.

Avatar f tn I have a son who is addicted to ocycotin, he has been doing 40mg yellow pills, somone gave him a hydromorphine 24mg, I am wondering what does the hydromorphine equal when compared to oxycotin? Any help would be appreciated so i can understand where he is comming from, He says to me he only has to swallow 1/2 of the beeds in the 24mg hydromoprphine to equal a 40mg oxycotin and would only have to do this twice a day, he says the hydromorphine last 12 hours instead of 6 with the oxycotin.
Avatar n tn -) You can go to ANY walk in clinic and be seen within a few hours. Most places in the LA area dont even need your insurance. And you will sign a hippa form which is a confidentiality contract that means that NO one can access your records. They will call you if anything shows up.. like.. "Hi this is Sally from the clinic, your screening test showed up (positive for___) If you have any questions please come back and see the doctor" You'll only get the call if you have something.
Avatar n tn Does any one know how I can find free or inexpensive suboxone assistance in Orange County, CA? I have an HMO so that is no help. I am addicted to oxycontin and I cannot go through th withdrawals again. Everytime I try to quit I give up after a week or two because I never get any better. Please help me! I will run out of my medication tomorrow and I am desperate.
Avatar n tn Also, in our county----- there is a voucher program that families can use to receive money to help pay for services if they qualify. These are government grants. I would start the search for such money through your health department. (our county it is $700 and can be used as seen fit for the child's needs.) Good luck----- it is hard but with effort, it will improve.
Avatar n tn I need my life back to some normacy. This depression isn't cuttin it either. Help ME DEAR GOD Ricki PS HOw is it that we have many doctors but they cant seem to figure anything out? God loves us all and wants us to have a blessed day even if it comes through somethingf like this. He always does. What a mighty God we serve !!! Can I hear an AMEN?????
Avatar n tn The only thing that is saving me are anti-anxiety drugs (one 8th - to one quarter of a 5mg tab valium) to help me sleep. Otherwise, I think I'd be up 24/7. But there's hope, my hands aren't shaking anymore, but I need to keep busy because too much idle time makes me think of the fun and enjoyment I used to have. I'm looking forward to life straight for a change. I allowed myself a month to ween off the pills but I think I should be pretty good there by the end of this week. I hope!
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 n tn I had paid for sex at a reputable strip club in LA COunty (the outskirts of LA/Orange County, where I live) Being 18 really sucks when you've got a lot on your plate and a few symptoms start triggering obsessive/compulsive behavior, right? I honestly forgot where I was going with this, but I should ask now--my 6th week is coming up...should I just test and use that as my final, definitive say? THe CDC (God bless them) says 3 months...I've been undergoing way too much stress to wait that long.
1596864 tn?1333488791 i'm a girl and i'm 15, and i live in Sullivan County NEw York. it's raining almost 24/7, and there is constant cloud cover. my aunt says that S.A.D. runs in teh family on the girls side. i have been feeling sluggish, lack of concentration, with depression and i don't want to move around or do anything anymore. could i have this or is just in my head? i have been like this for a while (3 months, and ijust found out of the S.A.D.
Avatar f tn Not sure what is conveniently close to you -- I don't know your part of So. Calif., but I just googled "lyme temecula" and "lyme orange county ca" and got hits, you just have to look down the page a bit on that second one. I remember seeing mention of a group between Orange County and San Diego, but that might not be your area. 'High desert' makes me think of ... Palmdale?
755952 tn?1240099060 I have been signed off of work since mid december with "depression", which last thursday was confirmed to be manic depression, considering the addition of elated hypomanic states I have been having. At this very moment i am on my way up to a high (see my tracker) and have several feelings I still am not sure about.
Avatar n tn First off, I got myself into this. And I hate myself for it. I got started a little over a year ago with the occasional Lortab (5mgH/750A). I use to be able to FEEL that. Then it got into getting multiple tabs of Percocet, Lortab and other more "minor" (in my opinion) pain killers. Wasn't enough. Got some Morphine pills. Got into snorting those. Got some Oxy's, got into snorting those.
Avatar n tn I guess it is flu season. I live in Orange county lyme disease prevalent there? THank you guys so much for taking the time to answer these questions.
Avatar n tn He has no money or insurance and can not afford treatment. Are there mental resources in Iowa that could help him? Thank you for your help as we are lost on what to do now.
Avatar f tn I see your in CA too. I'm in Orange County. My point is, I was going for counseling through the county where you pay what you can. Check and see if this is offered where you live. Honestly though, it's really hard to find a therapist who you connect with well....I can't tell you how many professionals I have seen who seem to be just condesending and sooo bored with their help at all which can leave one discouraged.
Avatar n tn others just lose their self respect and get into a depression that is great enough to stop..
Avatar n tn i nearly died several years ago from a faulty surgery, 30 days on morphine and years on pills, I found the pain decreased and I was just going for the next high. I did get help and my god I know I let down my hubby down more than one could imagine. We had 3 small kids at home, barely making it and i left him alone to pick up my pieces. Never again. Today our kids are teens (1 tween). financially stronger, just no insurance. I know I can do this.
Avatar f tn I live in north Orange County CA. I'm hypo and my incredibly bright/compassionate Dr. died suddenly 15 months ago. I have yet to find an endocrinologist who is knowledgeable and has a good rapport with patients. I'm a former ER/OR RN so my standards are high. Can someone Please suggest a endocrinologist in my area? Thank you so much! I'm very glad I found this community.
Avatar m tn I am from Bulgaria but I live in Orange County. What is prove C? How is that working for you? Sorry to hear you had to do the treatment more than once. Stay strong! On a fun note, boats are so much fun.
Avatar n tn Also if you take melatonin liquid at night, it will help you sleep some. It's a herb. I went to a rehab for 2 weeks in Orange County, CA called Spencer Recovery and it was a joke! That place had drugs being brought in and it was crazy! Bad influence! But, they gave me suboxone to help me withdraw but I took the last one 10 days ago and still going through this. The suboxone didn't help because my withdraw is worse! I have read some horror stories about suboxone but I don't know.
Avatar n tn hey, Dan. I need your help. I live in Orange County, Southern California, and I'm running into a brick wall trying to find an addiction specialist licensed to practice opiate agonist therapy. Buprenorphin is still illegal here and the closest methadone clinic is way too far away to make a daily commute remotely practical. Does anyone you know on your end have any suggestions, names, phone numbers? Thanks in advance. Hope you're doing well.
Avatar f tn I tried Vicodin but got tired of being nausea, Then I was on Butalbital and that was worse-didnt help the pain. Now I have pain on the right side (tumor was left frontal). I had to start the Vicodin again to ease the pain but have to tolerate the nausea. How do you know if your brain is swelling? So many questions and no answers....
1872991 tn?1320335163 (Well, sorta, lol) Yes, I am pretty close to the city. I'm in Orange County which is about an hour and a half from. I know the city well (I am from Brooklyn). You didn't mention, but did you have the surgery?
Avatar f tn I'm only going 2 hours away my city is right at the state line so its closer to go to the other state than travel 4 or more hours deeper into my own state and even at that I haven't been able to locate any Medicaid neurologist.. I know this is for addiction help but, I googled and couldn't for the life of me get an answer.
Avatar n tn One big problem with the MATRIX program is it's in downtown LA, making a regular commute quite a problem (although they do have an Orange County [my county] office that might be able to provide the same services, but early indications are that MATRIX only does the buprenorphine program from their LA office. At least I have two methadone clinics available to me in Santa Ana, Orange County (So Cal), which is far more do-able than the LA locations.
