Avatar n tn I understand, because recently I lost my best friend. My dog loved him to the extreme! Every day my friend used to visit us, and my dog would wait out in the garden for his car turning up. Well after he died, she was doing the same, and was quite "down" when he didn't show up any more. It was sad to see her sitting out there watching the gate or getting excited when a car slowed down outside, only to be disappointed.
189069 tn?1323402138 I haven't been on MH much lately....I miss being on here, but I've been avoiding it because it reminds me of what I have to face. My husband's been drinking again. He was sober for about 3 months and he "fell off the wagon," like he said. I told him, "Honey, you didn't fall off, you jumped off and sold the darn wagon." When this man starts drinking again, he doesn't have a slip and then sober up again, he keeps drinking.
215461 tn?1331862765 I guess it was only a matter of time before depression grabbed me with its nasty claws. The constant anxiety has finally won over. I want to live life. I look out the window longing for some normalcy. I feel lonely and vulnerable. It's as if I am the only one in my world, physically. I'm tired. It's so tiring to constantly be fighting a battle you can't win.
Avatar f tn I don't even know where to start. I tried again to explain what is going on with me to my best friend, but she just doesn't seem to want to understand. She said, Rani you don't have OCD, its just minor anxiety and you're taking the wrong meds and you're not doing anything to help yourself.
Avatar f tn I have a lot of hurdles to overcome still and I am considering getting a puppy "ridgeback, beagle, great Dane x" (great Dane may be a little much). Haha I am looking for a short haired dog that's medium to smaller size of large. I was on some sites and people are selling dogs that are a bunch of x breeds for $6,$7,$8,$900 dollars!!

Avatar m tn So I realized while writing a comment, and I wrote this in the comment itself, that if bipolar disorder and schizophrenia are truly the same disorder but manifesting in different ways, then perhaps a scale could be made with emotions being messed up on one end and thoughts on the other and then qualified people could determine where a person rests at on that scale. Of course, schizoaffective disorder would be somewhere near the middle.
Avatar f tn 1) Warning signs of depression. A) When we are in the midst of our episode, it's sometimes hard to see the slipping into depression. B) Others might need to see the warning signs to help us. 2) It explains the affects of our illness in good detail for our loved ones (as well as those trying to answer the questions?)

1530658 tn?1299766324 Restless sleep and all day yesterday I was a horn dog!
525545 tn?1293181194 I am frustrated with my CPAP machine for Sleep Apnea, I don't feel any better after using it for a month. I thought I would feel a little more rested. I still am depressed I just can't seem to get it to ease off. My Fibromyalgia symptoms seem to be getting worse. I find myself bumping into everything, dropping things a lot more, and the Fibro. fog gets really bad. I am not giving up, I am just having set backs again.
Avatar m tn The next day, my dog had a rectal temperature of 103, which I understand is slightly above normal for a 15lb dog. The morning after she had diahreaa (but this might have been because at this point I was forcefeeding her chicken which doesn't always sit well with her stomach). I took her to the vet later on this day. The vet treated her for acute gastrinal intestine bacterial infection, but nothing on the weird behavior.
599170 tn?1300973893 Is there a trusted friend or family member, who for either a small payment, or for the sheer fun of it(!) or for some exchange, or treat (like a box of chocolates...?) would come in during the day and play with your dog or take him out? I guess you wouldn't be able to afford a dog-sitter, or dog-walker..(?) I am not certain what they charge. How does he get along with cats? Sometimes dogs get along with them very well.
Avatar m tn Oh I am so sorry, both that you lost your well-loved Terrier, and that your Dalmation has taken it so badly. Grief and missing a loved companion is natural in dogs, but I can understand why you are worried, when it has this effect. Yes, depression can cause physical decline, but even an old dog who has got sad and down, that she feels her age, and has aches and pains, can maybe be cheered up. I don't really know about how wise it would be to get another dog in.
Avatar m tn I have an excellent hunting dog. Six months ago she gave a birth to 8 pubbies and for a reason they all die. After that my dog is not active anymore. I am taking her on the field and she just stays by my side and does not do anytging. Please, somebody help me!
Avatar f tn t a problem. they even called and thanked me for giving them such a great dog. i trained him since he was puppy. i hung up and cry the rest of the day and my mom told me it was for the best that he didn't end up in a pound or kennel. but still. i raised those babies when they didn't even have teeth. and now they are gone for me. its gonna be ok momma i hope that you do get to keep them that maybe theres something that can be done. i have to wait 6 months to a year.
Avatar n tn Hi, I'll just give you a little background information... About 8 months ago I began to start experiencing 'textbook' depression (the usual symptoms) and after a while I was put on antidepressants (Prozac) which after 8 weeks clearly was no help as I was hospitalized for 3 months and placed on Zoloft - which has helped rather a lot. I've been out of hospital for 5 days now and it feels rather like I'm slipping back down to where I used to be.
1553173 tn?1358434089 So I am not sure whether to wait or what. I struggle with major depression and anxiety. I think I would be doing better if I had a dog. Ever since I had my dog "Panda" it has not been the same. I had other dogs, but they did not work out. I feel safer with a bigger dog. I live in low income housing. I would have to have a letter from my doctor to say I need the dog for emotional and mental stability.
1175920 tn?1264179437 Another good day - symptoms so mild; haven't felt this good for a loooong time. I think Tysabri is having a monthly peak at about this time every month...I might be jumping the gun, but a pattern seems to be forming, I think. Drove again! Went to Jenna's around noon - we went to the dog park, then to Burgermaster (1st burger in a loooong time, too.) Back to Jenna's & was pretty wiped; Jenna had an appointment so I got to stay as the grandma who can help...
Avatar f tn I agree with the above post. This is something you obviously really want and it's not asking for too much. Do you know what your husband's reservations are? Your son and daughter-in-law have their own lives and you don't need their approval. Ask your husband why he feels so strongly against getting another dog and then explain how much having another means to you, and then get a dog. I've always had two dogs, they enjoy having another for company.
1740218 tn?1312015861 Well, Aleve is obviously a great help, to the malevolence that act-up, inside of my limbs and body. I just hope that the third day will be better than the last two days about to pass. And to think; the third day will be my birthday. How ironic, I suppose. Arms are becoming even more troublesome to weigh on: they are hurting worst than my legs and back. Should I start taking vitamins? Anything to make my body healthy and have strength again?
5536514 tn?1373500002 Took my baby (doggie) for a walk today. I havent been out for a walk in months. I think its about time I approach my depression a little at a time. I cant afford to overwhelm myself. Grateful to be alive, at least for today.
Avatar n tn My friend took her dog to the vet about 2 months ago and he told her that the dog had anemia. But anemia is a symptom which is brought on by a bigger problem. The symptoms are anemia, rapid severe weight loss, depression, lethargy, nasal discharge and white crust around nose, patchy/crusty sores, mild hair loss, and loss of appetite. We are going to go to a different vet very soon but would like to have a little insight when we go.
Avatar f tn Today was a low of lows for me.
Avatar m tn 30. Just showed, have not eaten...hungry. Meeting her Dad in a hour or so to go to their house and have Lunch. R.
Avatar n tn t give in to the depression. Get up and move. Get out of the house. Call a friend to go for a walk and ask for their help. Maybe even volunteer at a local dog shelter in honor of your beloved dog. I wish you well! Good luck! You're going to be fine!!!
Avatar f tn I'm 18 and I think I'm depressed. I've had a constant feelings of sadness and the typical depression symptoms for 5-6 months. But some days I'll be fine and happy. Other days I'll barely make it out of bed, be super irritable and have no Motivation to do anything ( but I'm still capable of not showing these signs and getting on with my day). I typically have more good days than bad but lately it's gotten worse.
Avatar f tn I think im depressed. But im not sure. I have most of the symptoms. I've tried to speak to family about it but they just think its apart of growing up. They dont understand!!!! I just want some help or some else to even speak to about it.
Avatar n tn Felt bad about Dozer's screwed up schedule (due mostly to weather) so I swpent the afternoon on him - tried to visit Gmom (she wasn't home so I left food for her), went to the pet food store, went for a walk, brushed him on the patio, gave him some line-line time, etc. Should have accomplished more actual work - especially school & writing stuff. Have to spend the weekend writing to make my plan start working.
