Depression help tapes

Common Questions and Answers about Depression help tapes


Avatar n tn I just purchased some tapes about dealing with anxiety/stress/depression from the Midwest Center and on one of the tapes the doctor said that approximately 85% of the patients that came to him about their anxiety also had underlying depression. So it sounds like they do walk hand in hand. I think perhaps it has to do with negative thinking. That's what these tapes are supposed to help me with. Hope you find relief soon.

Avatar f tn I bought the tapes for anxiety and depression, I was diagnosed with agorophobia, it's like a fear of life, you just stop living and ejoying daily activities. Whenever I am faced with any kind of stress my mind shuts down, I close my eyes or start blinking obsessively (medication actually intensified the blinking)... When I got the tapes I started listening to them right away. They have helped me tremendously to understand my condition.I am doing OK now working with the tapes.

Avatar f tn all those symptoms you described. i have every single one. one program that did help me tremedously is "Attacking Anxiety" i'm sure you've seen the commercials late at night. or you can look it up online. its from the midwest stress center . Anyway i listened to all those tapes and more important i followed all the advice on those tapes and literarly within 2 months i started to change my actions, diet, stress reactions and i felt so much better it was unbeliavable.
Avatar m tn Negative thoughts are the cause of your anxiety or depression. It took you years to arrive at your condition, so that it cannot be cured immediately, what you need to do is to change the way you think, a gradual process, through cognitive therapy (with therapist or, like me, through the use of tapes/CD). I bought kit from the Midwest Centre for Anxiety and Depression, it is a 15 week course, but at the end i felt 80% cured.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately some of us are even allergic to "hypoallergenic" tapes. I am allergic to the adhesives in tapes...and every time I tell them that in the ER they say, "Even paper tape?" Yuuuuuup! Even paper tape. Every time I go to the hospital I get IV Benedryl. Careful, it packs a kick!! It will make you feel like you got a shot of morphine almost!
4116706 tn?1351907846 Wrong date, should be Saturday night to Sunday morning. Hubby having problems with depression tonight "because I am negative or arguing". Loud talking, crying, hitting the desk, etc. did not help my sleep. If I got up to help him, he would get more upset. I also think he is afraid because of surgery Friday in Dallas.
268911 tn?1213744781 I have been on Lexapro sice March 2006. In July, my mom died suddenly and I was taken from 10 to 20mg. I had depression and GAD pretty bad before she died. It skyrocketed after. I feel it has helped me. Seeing a therapist also helps as does exercise, dropping ALL caffiene and alcohol. Yoga and relaxation tapes too. I am one to always worry about meds as i feel every side effect under the sun. So Lexapro seems to have worked out well. But these meds all work differntly for everyone.

Avatar n tn This may sound corny but what I use at night is sleep meditation tapes, they are really just relaxation tapes, you can get rain falling, sounds of the ocean, or there are even tapes or cd's out there that while you are laying down it talks you into the process of relaxing and going to sleep. Hope this helps Hope you get some good sleep.
Avatar n tn If I sound skeptical about self-help it is only because I have seen too many patients try various books, tapes, DVD's, diets, programs and methods. Of course, self-help does work, the messages you tell yourself are going to have a profound impact on how you think and feel about the world you must live in. I have seen clients who have purchased thousands of dollars of books, tapes, etc..
2024274 tn?1332956426 We expected this with this tx but im just worried that last night when i called she told me she cant do this anymore and feels like dying just to rest from all this that she has been through in the last 10 years that her liver has got so bad.I always give her some incouraging and supporting words and i know they help but not for long im afraid of depression.
315996 tn?1429054229 Long ago in another world and another time I collected self-help hypnosis tapes. Digging around recently I found my "Skiing With The Wind" hypnosis tape and I have been listening to it daily to improve my skills hopefully by visualizing all the moves I would make when out on the slopes. Anyway, my favorite hypnosis tape publisher is Potentials Unlimited. Just was thinking there might be something there for someone that is depressed, confused, or just "world weary".
Avatar f tn Today I feel like I do everyday, depressed. I thought this would just go away, I know now that it won't. I'm finally going to seek medical help. If there is anyone who has or still is suffering from dprssion please let me know your story and what helped you, such as the kinds of anti-deppressants.I can't go on living like this any longer. My family doen't understand this and thinks that it is in my head. I need and will seek help for me, the one person I seem to always neglect.

Avatar n tn ve had this anxiety now for about 2 months -- and because of it I believe I have a moderate case of depression. I think I can handle the anxiety symptoms, but the depression symptoms I can't. So, I think I've decided to start taking an SSRI -- and I've done some research and find the above SSRI is the best in regards to lesser side effects. (Of course this could be wrong?) My question to the group is....

372880 tn?1332879487 This is a shameless plug, but I am working on a series of tapes that are intended to help a person through withdrawal-- I am trying to take the messages from my three months in treatment in 2001 and from years of AA and NA meetings, and put them on motivation recordings. My intent is that a person would listen to them to keep motivated, to keep the mood up... I have some preliminary tapes at if anyone is interested. Yes, it would be something I am selling...
Avatar n tn My doctor put me on two different antidepressants but the thing is im not depressed! i think i might be stressed though. i just feel like i am going crazy! i need some help!
Avatar f tn They can spur a manic or mixed episode. If an antidepressant is used it usually is only used along with a mood stabilizer, and the patient needs to be very alert to changes in mood, and the doctor needs to be aware and watching for signs or symptoms. For some it is that they have history of this happening and so the doctors will be reluctant to use an antidepressant again.
Avatar f tn I have been on Lexapro for 4 years to treat depression and post truamatic stress disorder. I however had a crazy experience that has practically ruined my career, if not my life. Because of the stigma my friends attached to my taking antidpressants for so long. I took myself off my lexapro (20mg dly) on two occasssions. During each of these times I was arrested for shoplifting. I stole things like pens, pencils, masking tape and duct tapes and junk jewelries I do not have need for or wear.
