Depression symptoms over divorce

Common Questions and Answers about Depression symptoms over divorce


Avatar f tn There's a heck of a lot of stuff - most everything, in my opinion - that we don't have any control over. The only control we really have is over ourselves. And you have control over your attitude. You can choose to continue lamenting your loss and suffering, or you can choose to pick yourself up and work on your attitude toward your loss. Just think of all the wonderful times you had, the lessons your parents taught you, how grateful you must be for them passing on so much to you.

Avatar f tn I am so sorry about your divorce and your depression and guilt over the relapsing, but you can do this. These pills aren't going to do anything but make you feel worse and they will eventually get worse. Please stop taking them and go talk to helps so much to talk to a counselor. I know you can do it because I've seen much worse stories on here than yours and they are now living happy and healthy lives.
Avatar n tn and that sent me into an overall depression about how my life has gone since my divorce in 1989 and my ex's move to GA with my 2 sons. Now...I love my current wife dearly and would do nothing to hurt her or leave her. But at times like this I wonder if life would have been better for all concerned had I not divorced my ex (I was having an affair an event that with each passing day Im more and more furious with myself) there we go rambling..that's where I am today with depression, etc.
1130576 tn?1260154370 Complicating the picture, however, is the fact that a large number of children and adolescents suffering from depression have other associated psychiatric illnesses such as anxiety, disruptive behaviour and drug abuse. The symptoms of depression among this group remain largely the same as in an adult group; however, most of the manifestations due to the illness pertain to adjustment with peers and friends, problems in school, and indifferent or deteriorating scholastic performance.
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with depression and depersonalization since my divorce in January. Prior to this I have always had OCD since I could remember. Obsesive thoughts being the most stressful over the years. I am currently on Paxil (2wks) and Luvox (1 wk). Since last October when I found out I was going to get divorced and have to leave my kids and home I have had all kinds of problems emotionally and mentally.
Avatar f tn I myself am hyper-aware of depression, after watching my father's depression rip apart my parents' marriage as a child, and dealing with the emotional trauma of my father's attempted suicide when I was 16. So, here's to hoping I'm over-analyzing my boyfriend. Thank you in advance.
Avatar f tn He says he has thought about not going through with the divorce but he said he gets so mad when he thinks about everything that has happened over the past 3 years. When he thinks about that it makes him want to divorce me and find someone else who will truely care about him. I do love him and I know that I have done some terrible things to him and our life but I truely believe I did those things because I was so messed up on pills all the time.
Avatar m tn There are many types of depression, some are long lasting and some come and go. With some depression you could be fine all your life and becasue of the loss of a loved one (not just death) you can become depressed. There is also what we call clinical depression. This is a type of depression that has to be monitored. The person will probably have to be put on a type of medication and then watched for the rest of their lifes. There is also a type called situational depression.
Avatar f tn I was taking pristiqe for depression and anxiety I'm 6 wks today and as soon as I found out I was pregnant the Dr. Made me switch over to Zoloft for depression. I've heard nothing but horrible things about Zoloft. Is there anyone that has takin it during their pregnancy? What is your opinion and experience?
Avatar n tn Problem was that during this time, I was in the midst of a divorce, so my doc chalked it up to depression/stress/anxiety - put me on Zoloft. 4 Weeks later, nothing had changed - only that I cried alot. So, I went off the meds. Went back to Doc and told her nothing changed - she said i didn't give it enough time....anyway, to make a long story short - (too late) The third doctor I found FINALLY did that simple little blood test that showed my thyroid was the culprit!
Avatar m tn To make a long story short, she finally came around to being herself again and said that she no longer loves me and wants a divorce. This is where my problem begins. We have two beautiful boys aged 10 and 5, we live in our third home which one would consider upper middle class in lifestyle.
Avatar f tn My Dr told me moving ranked right up there with Death and divorce with stress. The depression was opiate I am sure. Quit opiates Jan 2nd. Oh the anxiety and panic attacks now! So talked with Dr and he's like of course, quitting is highly traumatic. But the panic isn't deadly. And will subside. Yep, I am questioning that right now lol, but when I stop and actually use my brain I know he's right. This is my "nut" Dr..
Avatar n tn This mentor is a clinical psychologist well acquainted with the cognitive and behavioral indicators of depression who was observing me over time and has expressed this question on several occasions. I was aware of the changes as above, snd of feeling tired due to poor sleep and having a generally stressful life experience at present but not of depression.
Avatar f tn It was tough but I think the Ltyrosine helped with the fatigue. My question is how do I deal with this extreme depression. I can't stop crying and Wedneday night I got really angry at my husband and said I wanted a divorce. He's so clueless and really notices nothing unless I'm out ant out crying with tears streaming down my face.
Avatar n tn Even at this low dose intermittently I notice withdrawal symptoms which includes depression, anxiety, panic, etc - I can go on an on. All in all it seems my ability to deal with life in the long run is diminished, my motivation gone, ability to handle lifes twists and turns gone unless I continue to take it. This really ***** because I feel I am a shell of the person I used to be. I wish I had not even started this. I believe the only benefit is in the short run only, a week or two max.
Avatar n tn I finally got to post!! I have been experiencing severe withdrawal/depression the last few days, so much that I have found myself crying on a few occasions, I have been feeling like there is no way out of this awful life style, and if I get close to being clean, I get scared when I think of leading a sober life..... I can't handle it anymore, I lie to everyone, I hurt everyone and I waste all my godamn money on drugs, what the hell is the point?
6610335 tn?1382967069 Minor depression is much like major depression, just not as severe. For a diagnosis of minor depression, the symptoms must last for at least two weeks. People with minor depression are at extremely high risk to develop major depression, especially if they don’t receive any treatment. Dysthymia is a long-term depressive disorder that lasts 2 years or more.
4204073 tn?1361835076 I relapsed several times, over and over and over again. It just finally got so bad that my desire to quit was stronger than my desire to use. It just seems part of this crazy process for some of us. You don't have to do it over and over. You can save yourself from all of that if you decide to quit now. I also knew that once I had decided to quit the first time, I was never happy again when I was using.
Avatar m tn As for antidepressants, they don't cure anything, they just help with symptoms, and create a whole lot of new symptoms because of their side effects. They can also be very difficult to come off of, depending on what you take and the luck of the draw. They also wouldn't be the first choice for someone just suffering anxiety as you describe, that would probably be some sort of relaxant, not an antidepressant.
Avatar n tn , who told me that i could have liver problems with no symptoms, but that because i have major depression,there is no treatment available so he won't bother with a liver biopsy. i wonder if this is common, i would kind of like to know if i have cirrosis but he said there is no treatment, so why bother with the biopsy, and to come back in a couple of years, maybe there will be. i feel like a time bomb now!
Avatar f tn I am sure my husband suffers from depression! I have checked the symptoms and he ticks 19 out of 21. He is extremely negative and fault finding, low in energy, irritable, with mood swings, tired but working all the time, lack of focus, sensitive to noise, low tolerance and easily turning things to negative even when there is nothing apparently wrong and we may be having a nice day.
Avatar n tn Over a year later a stressful phase triggered the old symptoms. When I consulted my counsellor, the horror of my depression struck me. Since it was ‘severe and recurring’, it meant I was prone to it and it had re-occurred. Meaning, recourse to anti-depressants whenever it occurred since it was a life-long ailment. However, I was convinced that there had to be a permanent solution to this.
Avatar n tn How many SVR's out there have experienced periodic, or occassional feelings of depression, fatigue, or lack of initiative after becoming SVR. My symptoms seem to flare for a few weeks at a time, and then are repalced by periods of high energy and activity. This has happened numerous times over the past 20 months since finishing successful therapy.
446896 tn?1237806342 I had a complete medical workup, even wearing a holter monitor for 48 hours, and everything came out fine. As I have been told over and over again---all of my bothersome symptoms (heart racing, trembling, etc) are just anxiety. I have come to accept this as truth and I am ok with it. NOW---I have another problem, though: DEPRESSION I have never considered myself a depressed person---I have always managed to feel positive, even during the worst anxiety---but this time I feel different.
Avatar n tn To me, as other people have stated, it does sound like depression. Maybe post traumatic depression from your childhood experiences. I would see your doctor like you said and tell him or her exactly how you are feeling. I live in Canada, and most of our Psychiarists and Psychologists are covered by our government, meaning we don't have to pay anything for them. However, I am unsure of the U.S and other countries.
1175284 tn?1263976683 I am over weight probably about a 100 pounds now. My periods start spotty then gets SO heavy I have to use the biggest tampos they make and thick long pads. Also because I have these heavy long periods that can last for 2-4 months at a time I get very anemic and have to take iron suppliments. I got so anemic from blood loss last year I had to have a blood transfusion! I was feeling better for a while after that and my amemia got better, and my periods got shorter and not as heavy.
Avatar m tn As far as long term commitments go - you're done with drinking. Get over it. Divorce it, break up with it or whatever works. It takes time but your former dysfunctional "management" of your alcoholism to pretend you live a normal life will subside. Antabuse will give you the peace of mind that you have no choice but to stay sober. If after a month you still think about drinking you should be rational enough to understand that you are an alcoholic.
Avatar f tn These guys are out of England and they are really good at what they do. Their tapes helped me to get over a phobia I had. As we both know, depression isn't something that you can just "get over" people who don't have it say things like that because they don't know what it is and not everyone has the compassion and perspective to really put themselves into someone else's shoes. I've done all these things and sought them out cause I knew I had to to be able to feel better, to function.
Avatar n tn I also started to mentally retrace my depression over the last the beginign it was real bad..then after about 6-9 months it started easing up... after a year it was signifigantly better..then (the xanax came into the picture)...then my depression was sometimes gone and sometimes real bad..I never put 2 & 2 together!! I have been experiencing a prolonged withdrawl from xanax for the last 4 months! I felt better knowing the truth, but I still couldn't get any sleep..
