Common Questions and Answers about Depression help tapes

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.
315996 tn?1429057829 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".
885961 tn?1249583403 Panic is another form of it, a nasty, shock trooper type. I must say to you that religion does not and will not help with depression or anxiety. One major reason for me saying that is that the Bible itself is filled with predictions of horror and destruction and the most dreadful creatures whoever wrote it could imagine. It's not a peaceful book I'm afraid and I'd suggest you read other books that are peaceful and harmless.

Avatar f tn I have suffered from severe depression, anxiety, and PTSD for over 11 years now. It was triggered by a very tragic event. I had to quit my job a year ago due to stress. This past year has been awful. I don't remember a lot of it bc there were days and weeks I couldn't get out of bed. I couldn't do simple things like take a shower or brush my teeth. As time passed suicidal thoughts became an every day occurance. After persistence from my husband and best friend, I went to a clinic.
237509 tn?1189759428 valium having a longer one would be a good one to take and then be able to taper down a bit to help with the depression.. Ativan does have a longer half life than xanax so talk with your doctor about which one would be best for you. I just feel if you feel like you need them that often then its probably not the right one..also switching could help get the amount you take per day down which would then lessen the depression.
Avatar f tn Literally, I finally made up my mind to loose weight and not give up this time and ordered these great cardio tapes on Wednesday and on Thursday I was told I have a large heart cyst and not recommended for strenous exercise. Today is Friday and they just came in the mail. Big freaking cosmic joke! I just want to scream!! Thanks for letting me vent.
618210 tn?1223930565 ive been suffering from anxiety and depression for about 4 months now and im taking 50 mg of zoloft a day..... lately i havent felt anxious or depressed at all but i feel like im not myself any more, i feel like i forgot how to be myself, im not the same with my friends and family no more, i dont act the same, i dont talk the same , i dont care about the things i use to, i dont know what i like and what i dislike, its like i forgot how to be myself......
Avatar n tn Right now, I am so miserable because I could not sleep, pain in so many places on my body, tingling at my toes and very tire in the afternoon. I must take 10mg Ambian to help me sleep at night. Doctor, please help me. What do I do now? What is wrong with me? I re-take Remeron again in the last 10 days but it's not effective yet. Do I have to take Remeron for the rest of my life? It's not worth living if this condition continues. I am forever grateful for your help and advise.
Avatar m tn The main thing to remember is don't let it go too far before you seek help...the deeper you go into a depression, the harder and longer to pull yourself out. Also, there are Suicide Crisis lines that can advise you and in Dallas, where I live, they will even send someone to pick you up and take you to the ER. All of this is temporary and it will work out in time even though it may seem like forever.
Avatar n tn Yes... Depression IS NOT fun. I've had a pretty shitty week too. I guess when you've screwed up your head with tons of Ultram (Like ME) it takes a LONG time to get back to "normal"-- Of course I don't know if I've ever been "Normal"! You know ULTRAM is also an SSRI (Anti-depresant) so coming off it can lead to depression on top of the regular withdrawls... The only thing I'm on now for pain is tons of Ibuprofen and also a small dose of Elavil (Amitryptilene).
Avatar n tn I need help today, I found out yesterday that my uncle died, now thats not a huge issue however, once again it brings up bad memories of losing a good friend and this morning when I woke up I was miserable, I ached everywhere and I couldn't get out of bed.
Avatar n tn I started have sever panic attacks in January. I have finally found medication to help the attacks and am in therapy. I am on 3 .05 long acting xanax a day and 100 mg of Wellbutrin. I have become not really constipated but my BM never look the same. I had two episodes where I had blood on the toilet tissue. I went to my GP and she found a fissure. She advised me to drink Mettamucil and eat more fiber. When I do that my BM's look normal and have no problems with blood.
Avatar f tn Doctors are happy to give me a note,but I get no money for that either. So a little help or advice,or who I can talk to in the uk about this state of affairs.
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. PS: I would also recommend exercise to help with your depression.
1641772 tn?1301361489 i am unable to find much information on potential negative effects. any help would be appreciated! thanks! http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar f tn I am not working because of the depression, I have a husband, who is supportive of whatever I decide, and no kids, so I could do the treatment now. Part of me hopes if treatment is successful, it might help with the depression and enable me to get back to work. A bigger part of me is terrified of doing permanent damage and worsening the depression beyond the point of treatment.
Avatar f tn I don't know about itunes - probably there too. Meditation has been shown in research studies to help with depression. The biggest one is exercise - preferably in the sunshine so you get vitamin D which will improve your mood. You gotta get moving. Even if it is a walk around the block, even if you cry while doing it. Pregnant women are allowed to cry in public. If anyone asks all you have to say is 'hormones'. lol. Take care best you can.
333672 tn?1273796389 There has been quite a bit of research showing its effectiveness in helping people cope with depression and chronic pain. There are some CDs and tapes available from http://www.mindfulnesstapes.
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..
209987 tn?1451939065 You pay them a fortune to read a passage out of a home remedy book...nice. I have tried selfhelp relaxation tapes, subliminal tapes, hypnosis tapes, etc. Every book that I have read thus far on anxiety says that same thing...control your stress, be stress free...easy for them to say...so how do I do that? I didn't find much help in any of the books. One book said that you need to set a time to worry and stress. It says that you should pick a time, such as 5:00 p.m...
Avatar m tn Hi, Just wondering if anyone has any advice (especially if you have also been through a similar experience). I head an NGO here in Kenya and have been here for 14 months. We support and work with HIV+ men and youth (male and female) and sex workers and other vulnerable groups, with a particular focus on keeping a grass-root approach.
Avatar f tn Your life practically stops when you are in a constant state of panic/depression! We all need to get some sort of help and there is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of.
196595 tn?1213844912 I have some very good relaxation and self-hypnosis tapes on anxiety that help alot. I also had some hypnosis and learned that to keep the anxiety levels down. I also have an odd thing where I get real strong back muscle tics/twitches, and at the same time, I will "throw" a PVC/PAC! It's been documented on an EKG this happens. I also have Fibromyalgia, which makes anxiety and also from what I have read, having palpitations, more common.
864885 tn?1240014394 it can take ur mind miles away and also help pain/anxity/depression and weight gain/3 tapes/earth, water and fire/...do sumpin that makes u feel good....yoga makes me feel good...plenty of other avenues....do u have alot of time on ur hands?
264121 tn?1313033056 I had to really get myself out of it, and that had to do with meditation, listening to hypnosis tapes, a whole panoply of things. Plus I went back on my regimen. This is just me. Once I calmed down and just became more okay with things, my enzymes went back to normal again. Who knows why they could of gone up, there are so many reasons.
250084 tn?1303311035 one thing i can tell you that my doc had me do religouslyy was to drink lots of water to help the medicine pass thru your system better. you might ask your doctor how much you should drink i am 180lbs and my doc wants me to drink 3 liters a day at least. i think all of us in here can say we had questions about what to expect and im sure each person as you see will have different expierences.
Avatar n tn Ok, I'm here to help you. Yes, everything you describe is anxiety, especially if you've been tested for heart issues, which you have/had to do just in case (that's why this disease stinks). This is what happens to me with an anxiety attack (JUST LIKE YOU): I get very clammy; I get lightheaded; I feel like I'm dying; my bowels go haywire and I get diarhea; I get very jittery; I feel extremely wierd also; and no, your heart rate does not necessary go up - it just feels that way b/c it's racing.
5051252 tn?1362973968 Clean only six months, problem mostly gone. My recommendation is to see a professional for help. 5 years clean and still having issues means that something else is a factor. Xanax and SSRIs and other meds never worked for me, They are a heaven sent blessing for some people though. Finally, I no kidding surrendered to my problems. Tired of hearing all the old mental tapes.
Avatar m tn So every so often (maybe about 1 to 5 times a month) I feel, well, just plain odd. I get these spells where I feel like I'm not here. I look around me, and I feel like nothing is real. I can also be looking right at my hands, feet, or at myself in the mirror and I feel so confused. almost like I don't know who I am. I then feel tense, scared, my heart beat raises, and I feel like I'm going to faint.
