Depression help support

Common Questions and Answers about Depression help support


Avatar f tn Why is it so desperately hard to get support from health professionals? I had a therapist who wouldn't return phone calls so therefore couldn't reschedule therapy appointments. (That was 15 months ago.) My doctor won't give me medication unless I'm in therapy. The mhs won't fund therapy (unless it is of the kind that makes me worse). I was told to complain about the lack of support but going through these issues and past ones leaves me feeling traumatized and unwell. I feel so frustrated.
Avatar m tn The change of life can affect mood and cause other unpleasant health problems and depression. To help you to feel mentally better, go for walks outside. Start of with a short walk and build the time up gradually. It is surprising how having a walk in the fresh air and doing physical exercise boosts the mood. Arrange to meet with friends and engage in hobbies or any interests.
Avatar m tn Is it a regular thing for anyone else that people back away with help and support on this. I held in most of what was bothering me or hurting all the time I am with them so they don't get bugged by it. I cant keep acting like everything is fine when its not. Any advice from any one would be a big help to me. I feel if I have to pursue the surgery I should have some support. If not I feel why bother. Thank you for your time.
Avatar m tn That is just what it does .there are things they can put you on to help with it. Usely they will start with Busbar ( may not be spelled right). In my case it did not help. However I know people it has worked on. Next they could try Trizadone ( again check spelling) it helped a lot it was for anixity,depression, and sleep. I do have some more ideas but These are the two I have found work best. I completly understand were you are coming from I am in the same boat. I do the same things.
688135 tn?1290783376 I do have some relief and am currently not growing more stones, but have to contend with what's in there still. I have daily pain (and of course the depression from this extereme uncertainty for my future) Every single day i hope and pray this will be over. It has changed my life. So here's what i do to cope. I take my meds Cymbalta and Vicoden. I will only allow myself to do two extra strength a day to help me. My doctors think that is "reasonable".
Avatar n tn I'm 20 and I don't really know where to turn to for support. My friends try to help but it's hard to always talk to people who constantly offer sympathy but can't fully relate to what I'm going through, if you know what I mean. I looked for cancer support chats online but only came across defunct, empty, or outdated ones. Does anyone have any advice about where I could find more people to talk to about this? Is anyone going through a similar situation?
Avatar f tn This Depression forum 2. Your Psychiatrist 3. Go online and find a good local Depression and anxiety support group. They are free and they usually meet once a week. It's a good place for you to go where you can be around others with your condition that understand. These people can often become a great scorce of help and guidance to you as most have much experience dealing with the dynamics of this dissorder.
503449 tn?1231079534 I am trying to get clean.... again.... and need support. I've been taking hydro on and off for 3 yrs or so. It's getting harder and harder every time I do this. I've never tried a support group and very shy so not sure what to do. I do love reading on here though. Thanks for this site. It has helped a lot.
6063300 tn?1430434171 I wish there was a way to get the word out about educated places like this site and to those ppl looking for real support and not a hook up. I have started to form a support team from forum questions, to pvt messages, and then by texting with people I met all on here. This is the greatest place and we are here for you. Sorry I can't answer your question, I don't know the answer.
1433412 tn?1283441285 also ur taper was too fast cutting 1/4 a pill every other few days can work for some//best to ask ur dr. it should take close to a mth to taper trams sometimes best to have a trusted friend hold them if u r clean for 3-4 days, it is silly to go back and taper now u r what u can read the health pages...educated urself to make it easier when someone is clean for 4 days or more it is silly to go back and taper again!
Avatar f tn Stay focuses on that. How is your support system? Is your mom around? Have sisters or aunts or good friends? Now is the time to reach out. And while this is hard, the shmuck who left you is still the baby's dad so encourage his being in the child's life and bonding with baby. (and collect child support!). We're here for you sweetie. Let us know how we can help!
Avatar n tn This does sound like depression. I would recommend seeing a counselor. Medication may also help you. We have a depression forum here at Medhelp. The people there are very nice and understanding. They will support and help you any way they can.
Avatar f tn Excited about my baby boys arrival this August/September, dont get ne wrong, but other factors in my life are causing me to slip into depression. I could really use a friend right now.
Avatar f tn You can feel better just look for help and support from your support network. If it helps you are not alone. I find my self crying for nothing. Though, I am noy in the point that I feel overwhelmed. Best wishes for you and your little one. I hope you overcome this soon. Tell yout dr. And ask for support groups. You are going to be amazed about the number of women that go through the same thing.
Avatar f tn Like I've mentioned, the father is in jail and I have no emotional support. I feel like I can't do this. I've never wanted an abortion but I just wish there was some way out of this. I feel helpless and worthless. Idk what to do anymore.
Avatar f tn Extreme emotions is pretty common place in pregnancy but if it's getting you down like that then there is help and support out there for both you and your partner so he can support you as best as he can.
Avatar f tn I'm so sorry you're feeling this way. It might be your hormones but yes, life can really make us depressed at times. Can you say what's going on? Is your husband there to support you emotionally? What about other family members? It might be a good idea to talk to your Dr about your depression. He/she can most likely recommend a therapist or psychiatrist. Only a psychiatrist can prescribe medication and also counsel you. So, if you do feel that you needs meds this is the kind of Dr to see.
Avatar m tn What do you mean when you say "I don't want to wake up in the morning"? Do you mean you are tired and just want to lie in bed? Do you mean that you can't face another day? Tell us a little more so we can help....thanks.
Avatar f tn Either can help. I had a rough patch but I was lucky. I exercised my way through it.
Avatar f tn At the shelter we have our own little room kind of like an apt the size of a bedroom, we are only allowed to stay 3 months so in the time being here they do help find housing and my dad hasn't offered to help at all, I haven't heard from him since I told him I was pregnant & even then all he said was thanks for tellin me. My brother told me all the stuff my dad is saying.
Avatar f tn You should speak to a medical professional, depression can lead to post partum depression which tends to cause mothers to harm their children. Its best to get professional help as soon as possible. Good luck momma.
Avatar f tn After birth try going to as many baby clubs as this will help distract u and there are other mothers prob going thru similar situations so will help to talk to. Theres a group called smile that helps with depression too. The best thing is soon you will have your bany by you and he/she will be all that matters.
Avatar f tn I am 35 weeks and 5 days pregnant, here lately I have been dealing with a bad bout of depression! And I just don't know what to do!!! I am married, but I just feel so alone all the time!! My husband is a coach so this time of year is always crazy for us but it's just affecting me sssssoooo much right now!! I am alone all the time and I feel like I have no one to talk to or no where to turn!! My husband's just tells me to stop or ignores me.
Avatar m tn Cognitive behavioral therapy, psychotherapy, joining support groups may help. You should try interacting with people and enhance your social circle. Seeking the opinion of an experienced psychiatrist will be helpful. Take care and best wishes!
Avatar f tn Tell your Dr, they could give you an antidepressant because if you have depression before/during pregnancy you're more likely to have post partum.
Avatar n tn Im more worried. I spoke to my mom last night and I can hear the depression in her voice. I dont know what to do to cheer her up. Of course, given the circumstances, you cant blame her for how she is feeling. Also, no one can tell her how to feel - those feelings are her own and she is entitled to them. BUT, Im afraid she might be giving up. True, the blood clots are a complication - but theyre a relatively minor complication which are relatively easy to fix.
