1874452 tn?1349638377 Hi, my name is Lynn and I have had depression for many years, but once I changed my way of thinking, I changed my way of life. I went for psychotherapy sessions and emotional support groups. They can help you change your negative thinking into something positive. You can build self confidence and motivation in yourself. Also taking antidepressant medication can help. See a psychiatriast and ask him about psychotherapy. It really does help.
647391 tn?1275020233 If you have a mental health agency where you live-they may have support groups for people with depression and/or bipolar; other mental health issues. Doctors sometimes have educational classes for diabetics. Health departments have parenting classes. On & on. Sorry to go on so long. This is to show you that going in and just 'babbling' is OK if that's what you need. Often-as I LISTEN to MYSELF talk-I end up with these 'Ah-HA!' moments where I actually see my problem clearly for myself.

Avatar m tn I am in Cairo for two month and was wondering if there is any support groups for people with chronic pain or depression?
Avatar f tn I have read that Cognitive Therapy can help with this condition, but I am not yet ready to approach my GP to request a referral as I get tearful even thinking about it and it would be an awful waste of their time for me to take such help right now- I want to connect to other people who suffer the same condition and hear their experiences etc. Are there any online support groups specifically for this condition?
Avatar n tn I've always had it around my face and forehead, but now its on my cheeks and my nose! That part is hard to cover - even with makeup. I am going through a severe depression because of it! The 2 years I was on MTX helped about clear me by 5% and now all the clear spots are getting covered with Psoriasis and now I have NEW spots. Its spreading to my fingers and to the palms of my hands and feet! I am about 90% covered! And its very painful!
Avatar f tn I'm in my early 20s, my parents don't care much about my depression and always brush it off as a symptom of celiac. I need to know if I should start medication for my depression because controlling my diet and avoiding gluten is not exactly helping my depression. And if this is a symptom of celiac disease, how long does it take (months, years?) for it to die down?
Avatar f tn com I am sure you can find something in your area. Also, I come back to the medication. I don't like to advocate medication, but having personally been in the position of not being able to cope, medication really helped me get back to a good place so that I could deal with my emotions and everything that was going on.
Avatar f tn had the exact same treatment i had before, now recently I stopped having my period again thats 2 years after my 2nd treatment I told the dr I'm not having the diane 35 pills again because i suffered depression, weight gaining specially that i'm NOT over weight at all.(i'm 114 lbs. 5.
Avatar m tn Do what you have to do for this - online support groups, offline support groups, someone to talk to online and offline - it could be a pastor or a friend or just... anyone who can be a good listener! (It's fully possible that the guy who runs a pub at the other side of the street would be a great listener as well as a man with high education and high rates pr 10-minute counseling session). I hope you find some great contacts here. Good luck!
5864500 tn?1380893197 Presently I am on with venlaflaxine-50 mg, Trapex-10 mg, and Nortriptyline -25 mg. Nothing seems to work out. Is depression a permanent disease? Do we have to take medication all the time? Is it like hypertension, that we continue to take medication. Does anybody has any answer?
645800 tn?1466864555 Needless to say this is a big blow to my ego even though I haven't been doing a lot (almost none) walking for years now. Hence the depression and I don't know what to do about it. Dennis PS the scooter won't arrive for about 2 months.

Avatar f tn I got an anxiety workbook which had a section on some other things including OCD and depression. In the check for depression I showed 7 of the 9 signs for it. I don't do good in social situations either it can be one on one, large groups, and public speaking. It's getting to the point where it is really affecting my everyday life. I can't go to job interviews or start college, I don't like attention from almost anyone. I read that only through prescription and/or therapy can help, is this true?
Avatar n tn Depression during pregnancy can be controlled by joining in new parenting groups. To overcome from postpartum depression. I have joined the group. Now I'm free from it.
13864745 tn?1443688831 I'm a depressive, I'm always going to suffer with bouts of depression. For me, I've found not being on medication helps, otherwise I'd be on it for life. Luckily my partner knows the signs and I pretty honest so it's a good combination. We talk it out, I have a few hobbies that I turn to, to help and if I really feel bad (I have been suicidal in the past) I have been to see therapists.
2070825 tn?1337229569 go to pregnancy groups..make friends..get counselling or cbt for your anxiety and depression its not safe to take antidepressants whilst pregnant. I asked my doc when I was pregnant and he researched if they were safe . His answer was "only take them in pregnancy if the benefits outweighs the risks. So no he said. They're not safe.. only if you're feeling desperate that you'll harm yourself. But I wouldn't recommend taking them" also the first month in taking them you feel even worse.
Avatar n tn That may be something for you to look into, also you can look for support groups in your area. There are usually quite a few for anxiety and depression. Support groups always sounded so cheesy to me, but it has really helped, so if you can find one give it a try it's really good therapy. At one point I couldn't drive, all I could do was lay in my bed, the depression and anxiety had gotten so bad. I was unable to care for my son most days.
Avatar m tn I have spent many years in therapy, and in my case while I have learned a lot about myself and the people with whom I share my life with, it has done little to nothing in terms of eleviating my severe symptoms of Depression and Anxiety. Only medication has worked to ease the severity of my symptoms. I am sure that for people that suffer from the kind of depression that is caused by major life trama, that Talk therapy can be a very effective tool.
Avatar m tn One told me Tramadol was the strongest medication prescribable so I suffered many years on that medication thinking there was nothing else that could help me. Finding support groups like this one online truly helped me gain the facts and knowledge I needed to fight for better pain management. I hope your appointment went well on Wednesday and that you are enjoying a great start to the holiday weekend! When you have time, please post how you are doing.
Avatar f tn I just didn't want you to think that if your daughter is diagnosed with depression that she is somehow mentally defectve. Depression is just a disease, it is not the sum of our being. If it does turn out to be depression, then educate yourself about this condition. This is the best way for you to help her. This condition is often frustrating for sufferers to describe because often it's symptoms can be kind of bizzar and hard to describe.
146920 tn?1212091394 I know that you said that you are low-income, but you need to see someone, preferably a psychiatrist who can prescribe medication. (I am on meds, too.) Start by asking your doctor or go to your local clinic. Talk to the physician and see if there are any doctors who charge according to income. There must be. Get the help you need...YOU deserve to be happy and your Child needs a healthy mom. Do it for YOU and your family. Hopefully someone else will post to give you more advice.
Avatar f tn They talked about medication i can take thats not going to affect the baby. Am i a bad person to have depression while im pregnant. The doctor thinks its because the babys father has been "verbally" abusing me for the past year and thinks it just caught up with me. They arent affraid of suicide yet but wants to see me more. On top of the news i am having a girl But i have bad high blood pressure and i lost a lot of weight when i should be gaining it in this point of pregnancy.
Avatar n tn It was not known until some people started coming out to say they were having odd times of depression. there are different kinds of depression that should be treated differently so my best advice is to ask your doctor or look into seeing if there is a sadd clinic in your area.
Avatar n tn There is depression involved with any step-off, but I think you are confusing *normal* healthy depression with the clinical one that we have...I don't think you have to worry about it. Again, good luck!
Avatar f tn Hi Just wondering if anyone else is going through this too. I had depression years ago and overcame it with exercise and positive thinking. I never really guessed it would become an issue again but now since I'm pregnant it's reared it's ugly head in my third trimester. I find my mood extremely low, and very anxious feelings about life and how it's going to be as a ftm. I'm pretty scared . I'm usually such a positive person .
