Depression symptoms jealousy

Common Questions and Answers about Depression symptoms jealousy


Avatar m tn I started taking Wellbutrin for the depression last month and I completely lost my mind with jealousy. I was pretty much stalking him even though really he had not even done anything. Your post made me curious to check to see what the Wellbutrin side effects were and I had almost all of the ones people complained about even the full body hives (I blamed him for those too!) Thank you for making my life so much better. I quit taking the meds and feel normal again!
Avatar n tn It sounds like you've had some long standing anxiety issues, and THIS particular exacerbation of anxiety is presenting itself with the jealousy and insecurity. Catastrophizing is definitely an anxiety behavior. I think you're on the right track. Medications like Lexapro can be very beneficial in the management of symptoms, while you work on making some more long term changes in your thinking process, and how you react to feelings of anxiety.
Avatar n tn I have been taking Paxil for depression and also participating in therapy. My significant other was told about this 2 months ago. I was reluctant to tell him because of negative comments he had made about medication. Since he was told he has been complaining that I am not as empathetic towards him and has even made comments that indicate that he is jealous of my therapist.
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, along with obsessive thinking and depression but I have a difficult time accepting this diagnosis.All symptoms were first somatic with tingling in my arms and legs.Then began some slight almost black out experiences,sleep disturbances with my body vibrating while I was asleep.All medical tests proved okay,MRI of the brain, thyroid testing,etc.During that time,I had my first intrusive thought of hurting a my first therapist that I had ever seen.
Avatar f tn These compounded hormones do not affect fertility, they are not for birth control purposes, but can certainly help with excessive, irregular bleeding, depression, menopause symptoms and other hormonal imbalances. My heart goes out to all you having problems with the pill. I have a 20 year old, 4 months on the pill, experiencing constant anxiety and depression with anger and bouts of crying over small things. I am helping her find alternatives.
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with Peripheral Neuropathy and have had symptoms of burning in my feet for 3 years and my lower legs for 2 years. I also have severe joint pain and would like to know if neuropathy can cause joint pain too. Also I am experiencing what feels like bad muscle aches in the thighs - could this be the neuropathy spreading and how do I know if this is the case? One other question can neuropathy come in conjuction with other things such as fibromyalgia.
Avatar n tn The problem is sometimes those pregnancy symptoms are an awful lot like period symptoms (it's a bummer that nature works that way). But either way, I started having sore breasts and slight nausea within about a week or so after my IUI. The IUI worked and I did get pregnant... so although everyone is different, the symptoms started rather early for me. We'll cross our fingers for you and hopefully you'll have some good news in a week or so!
Avatar m tn My levels are off again and battling through another recovery. My main symptoms have been depression, jealousy, and insomnia. I'm 7 weeks into some of the worst thoughts of my life, but slowly coming out of it. I retest on Monday and fully expect an increase in synthroid on Tuesday. I would assume men with auto immune history get this disease more ofter, although I have no scientific evidence to prove that. Good luck!

Avatar n tn I believe this comes from his own insecurities and jealousy. He isolates himself after that and will not listen to anyone and what they have to say, for example his mom. His parents got divorced when he was little, his mom dated a lot of guys and has trust issues.
Avatar n tn I just got over 4 months of depression, envy, jealousy, etc. It was hell, and the 2nd time I've been through it. Nornal has never felt so great. I'm euphoric. I'm working on a plan to minimize the chance of another relapse. Good luck!
Avatar f tn You have mentioned jealousy, depression and an OCD type behavior...........all of which can be helped with medication and therapy. How does your husband "try to help, but just makes things worse?" What would you like to see him do or say so that he CAN really help you? Not knowing if you're on any meds or for how long, if you ARE, I would guess one of three things.
Avatar m tn For a year now, I have had depression. I have taken a few different kinds of medications and have found one that works better than the others. I generally feel better than I used to, but I still suffer. My main problem is the fact that I have no motivation to do anything, especially study and go to class. I always feel stupid compared to everybody around me, especially my girlfriend, who I am extremely jealous of.
Avatar m tn But somewhere out there, there is a medicine that could really help you control the symptoms. Meds combined with therapy is proven to be the absolute best at treating depression. The meds lesson the symptoms while therapy helps you get to the root of your issues and builds you back up to be stronger, stable, and happier. Best of luck to you, remember your not your NOT crazy!
Avatar n tn I need proffessional advice for this (im going to preface this question by saying im typing this on my ipad so excuse any typos). I am a 16 year old girl and i have shown symptoms of major depressive disorder since i was 4 years old. I know this is a pretty far out idea but bear with me. I began taking medication for depression and anxiety when i was nine, so ive been taking medication for 7 years.
Avatar f tn When my thyroid is under performing, the only symptoms I get are mental. Severe, depression, obsession, and jealousy. I feel like I'm losing my mind, and I'm about the most stable person my friends know, when healthy. I had this 3 years ago and made a full recovery with synthroid only. I'm going through it for the 2nd time now and hoping to again make a full recovery, however it is much more stubborn this time.
Avatar m tn The weird thing is that this works both ways -- that is, the anger is usually from being worn down by the OCD, which used to take the form of jealousy and obsessions about my partners' past in 3D splendor just to torment me. I'm also a writer, and I've always had my dreams of making it big. And yet, an editor once wrote a book blurb comparing my work to Hemingway and I immediately thought it was ridiculous -- I didn't even want the blurb.
Avatar f tn Meds can keep most people out of delusions. Without the severe mood the severe reaction gets weaker. It sounds like a good doctor could help you. I waited too long to get help, had a psychotic breakdown and it has taken a long time to recover. Not saying you will go there, but you will likely feel better as you actively do something to heal. I'd try to talk to a psychiatrist. I still get angry, just not smash the RV into a pile in the yard kind of rage. Have you been diagnosed?
Avatar m tn What you describe sounds like classic symptoms of anxiety and depression. Probably a major depressive episode,, as it's termed. The stressful event with your girlfriend has triggered it off and I'm betting you have had problems in the past. but maybe not as severe. The early morning wakening, the stomach ailments, dry mouth, bad breath, are all VERY common symptoms, as are the obsessions and excessive worrying. You need to seek out professional treatment, preferably a psychiatrist.
Avatar m tn As margypops said, we really need more information. But the one part that stands out and bothers me is when you said, "terrible tantrums. They will last all afternoon." That is one of the symptoms of being bipolar. Many of his symptoms also suggest being ADHD. Below I have pasted a list of differences between bipolar and ADHD. They were sent to me by a fellow member and were written by Dr. Popper.
Avatar m tn Hi all, I am new to this forum, although I have been lurking for a while to find answers. I will try to make this question short. I was diagnosed with severe postpartum depression after my daughter was born in 2010, but nothing has gotten better. I used to have anxiety and impulsive beavhiours when I was in my teens, so this has led me to believe that this isn't something that is going to get better anymore. I feel like I have strong OCD tendencies, but cannot find other people to related to.
Avatar n tn caused, but his symptoms sound a WHOLE lot like manic depression. I would find a good psychiatrist if you don't have one already. Also let him know depression is not a weakness, but a chemical imbalance and that it could make wonderful changes in his home life. (happy wife, happy life lol.) Best of luck and your in my prayers.
Avatar m tn depression, jealousy, obsessive/illogical thoughts, sex drive off the charts, etc. 3 years ago synthroid got me 100% back to normal, so I assume it will again and perhaps the FT3 and FT4 are totally unnecessary. However, after hearing from you fine folks, I don't see any harm in knowing these levels, especially FT3 and how it relates to mood and mental problems. Thanks all! Any advice greatly appreciated!
Avatar f tn For years I have struggled with anger, jealousy, and rage. (At the time I didn't know what was happening to me was rage). The rage follows with an overwhelming feeling of guilt, worthlessness and depression. (Whoa as me.) I don't recall ever dealing with mania or hypomanic episodes until my early twenties, heightened when I drink. Currently when I'm manic it's your standard symptoms I guess...
Avatar f tn Feeling that everyone is happier, better, brighter etc is something that fits with low self-esteem which can be alongside depression or leading to depression. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy can work well in dealing with these sorts of issues, retraining your way of thinking. The others have put examples already of how the way people appear on the outside is not the whole picture.
Avatar n tn when obvious there was something,got him 2agree 2a 1off assesment,diagnosed with delusional disorder.had obvious symptoms at time,paraniod thoughts&behaviour,often fueled by irrational jealousy/mistrust.extream highs&lows,overly confident/severe depression,crying&wanting to die.severe anger has increased,unfortunatly i was already unknowingly pregnant.symptoms since-putting me in hospital 3times,mumbling&talking 2himself,often not aware he is doing it.
Avatar n tn i try so hard and i cant! its impossible.. i have jealousy attacks, i get frustrated quick, i say hurtful things. and then 10 minutes later i can say " hey how about an ice cream :) ) i dont even understand it myself. i get soooo mad at little things and i know im over doing it but my body reactions dont let me calm myself down. if i get in a fight with my boyfriend, i break his stuff, i call him names, i start to cry and throw a fit.
Avatar n tn I would get extremely angry and could not pinpoint a trigger thought as to why I was angry, not to mention my anxiety had come back (I was originally on Paxil--he took me off of it bc of sexual side effects and because of a recent dip in my depression--I'm beginning to think I was better off on that). I went to my psychiatrist and explained the increased anxiety and agitation, and he increased the Wellbutrin to 300mgs daily and the Ativan .5mgs to 3x daily prn.
