Avatar f tn Losing interest in doing things, lethargy and lack of appetite are all classic symptoms of depression. I recommend that you talk to your doctor about this. I can tell you to just get up and do something but I know that is so hard if you are really depressed. Hormones in pregnancy can cause some women to be depressed. So, talk to your doctor. If you can exercise, it really does help. It releases a happy hormone in the brain that fights stress.

Avatar n tn I am concerned on reading your two questions. Both depression and the weight as i said are very classic symptoms of being in a hypo state. Where are your levels at? Can you go into a bit more thyroid history on yourself? What labs can you post - and When was the last testing done? To answer your question on a personal level. Yes I was referred to a therapist for my early anxiety and depression - but is was not sucessful.

Avatar f tn My depression is back so obviously I am too. I haven't written in my journal in a while now and the only time I usually do is when I'm depressed or my OCD is coming back. I've been feeling really down lately. It's the holidays right now and I'm not in the holiday spirit at all. I miss my dad a lot. I've had a lot of dreams about him lately. I feel that he's with me and I'm communicating with him through my dreams but it obviously doesn't fill the void I'm feeling in my heart.
Avatar f tn You have all the classic symptoms of depression and it's important to get help so you can nip this in the bud and move on! Talk to your parents, they have to realize that everything has changed with you. If your parents don't take you seriously put it in a letter to them...often when we read something we truly hear what is being said.

Avatar m tn Ever since I could remember I was considered forgetful and flighty. Now that my depression and anxiety (severe depression usually causes some level of anxiety) are treated with meds and therapy my functioning is much higher. I have completely turned around my work situation and am turning around my social situations as well. Notice your function went down after you went off your meds. My doctor says the goal of depression treatment is complete remission. e.g.
Avatar f tn Small things seem to worry me in a big way, etc. I've never taken anything for depression, but I wonder if it is time. Do any of you take antidepressants? What are the pros and cons?

Avatar n tn This relationship was filled with verbal abuse and constant mood swings from my very unstable EX-girlfriend (no wonder I self-medicaed with pot).. Currently my symptoms include anxiety/depression, irritability, irrational thoughts, and the occasional headache. The ups and downs have really begun to wear on me and I'm beginning to wonder if I'll ever return to my normal self before the pot and the emotional roller coaster of a relationship.
Avatar m tn When we looked at the people in our study who had elevated symptoms of depression, they were more likely to eat more calories, they exercised less, and they were more likely to be current smokers. And as a consequence, they were also more obese," Golden, whose study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, said in a telephone interview.

Avatar f tn It sounds like classic symptoms of depression. If you can't go to a therapist, what about your family doctor? He might be able to prescribe a drug for you, at least for a while, to see if it helps. I don't know your age, but if you are older, some of these things could be from hormones, like in menopause. Also, I don't know your family situation or if you're married or have a boyfriend. You might benefit from counseling if you can get it.

Avatar n tn Dear friend Don't ignore the symptoms of depression, talk to your doctor for an depression assessment. I was feeling well for the 6 month and I was ignoring the depression until one day I had to go to the hospital with suicidal thoughts and so depressed that I couldn't control myself. They put me on CELEXA and now I can say I function but still have very bad days. I cry a lot and feel empty and hopeless.They even put me on psychotherapy for severe depression.

Since then i've kinda of self diagnosed myself with anxiety/depression from what i've read online. fast forward to last night.

4753943 tn?1359938169 Depression and anxiety can totally be detox symptoms. I am 21 days clean and I look back at my journal entries from days 6-9 and all I am talking about is how depressed, unmotivated, hopeless and angry I am. Nothing positive at all. Give yourself a few days...these drugs are crazy,,what seems unbearable becomes doable in a week. You should def be monitored by a dr though. There is a difference btwn wanting to die bc you are miserable and having true suicidal thoughts...
382218 tn?1341185087 Hmmm, this is kind of interesting: I just read an article pubished on Jan 31/08 in the journal "Multiple Sclerosis" that concluded that depression is NOT associated with beta interferon treatment in MS.

1692704 tn?1307215380 if you have Lyme, you have a bacterial infection that can be treated, and the symptoms -- including depression caused by Lyme -- resolve when the infection is treated. Can you have depression independent of Lyme? Sure, but rather than assume that's the case, getting treatment seems a reasonable course of action. Hang in there, everybody.
145315 tn?1192241113 Has anyone tried marijuana to help with feelings of depression? Can it be harmful to one while on treatment.
