Avatar f tn I am so sorry that your depression is untreatable, and with all those ECTs it has not improved. I presume no anti-depression medication has been effective in your case either. I presume you have tried them all. You certainly don't sound pathetic, I admire you for being such a fighter. Seems the doctors and psychiatrists have given up on you. Well I do not know what to suggest you do next, seems to me you have tried so hard.
Avatar f tn My son had tests six months ago and appeared to be stabilized so they told him to wait six months for next test. At the six month mark, he was hypo and feeling bad. Don't wait for your next scheduled check if you dont feel good.
Avatar f tn When she was young she was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. As the years passed things got worse and my husband and I thought she may be bi-polar. After doing research though things just did'nt fit. Sometimes it can be hard to tell the difference between BPD and bi-polar. I asked her to look up some info I found about BPD because everything seemed to fit. She agreed. He therapist and psychiatrist confirmed her diagnosis. Now, my daughter is in treatment.
Avatar n tn Everybody reacts differently to depression. Currently my TSH is at 14 and I just started medication yesterday - my depression takes the form of no motivation, to get up and go to work or do house work, cry at the drop of a hat and sleep. Being around people and drinking is the last thing I want to do but as I said everyone is different. Personally, if I were you I would be looking at whether or not there are any other underlying issues going on in case it's not all being caused by the hypo.
Avatar n tn This topic has been addressed on many different occasions in this forum and I suggest that you search the archives using borderline personality disorder as a keyword. It also is apparent that you suffer from depression and tend to isolate yourself from social situations. You deny being shy, which could signify a social phobia if present. Antidepressants and mood stabilizing agents can be helpful for borderline PD.
Avatar n tn It has been suggested that my wife may have borderline personality disorder by our marriage counselor. She has some of the symptoms ( marked mood swings , periods of depression , irritability, intense uncontrolled anger, issues around trust concerning me). she was confronted by the counselor and he suggested a Psychological evaluation. she has rejected this and claims that I am the one with the problem and is refusing to see him again nor does she wish to go for further counseling.
Avatar m tn She was so vocal and playful and had a very distinct personality. The parents of the family went away on vacation for a week and it was around that time that she 100% lost her personality. Now she just lays there with her eyes open and doesn't budge. She barely eats and has a lot of trouble going to the bathroom. When you interact with her its just like there is no one home, like the lights are on but no ones home.
460066 tn?1206453487 Just know you are not alone, and depression, oh yea, I have always dealt with depression but this depression is on a whole other level. It is hard to describe it to people, so I just don’t. Just hang in there better days will be coming.
390828 tn?1238693893 I went into the dr because I had taken many test for bi-polar as I had heard and read the symptoms. I have suffered my whole life with depression, aniexty, mood swings, seft loathing, regret for fooling choices. But, I am still on a waiting list to see a psychiatrist and a 6 week group therapy session. I am on celexa, an anti-depressant, which helps very little. I am basically on my own to deal with this diagnoses, and I am doing very poorly at it.
Avatar n tn She has meds to take to include birth control and doesn't take them when she is supposed to but when she isn't feeling good or if her teeth hurt I am to take her to the Dr. or dentist right away. Just like I was to produce a pregnancy test right away to see if she was pregnant.
Avatar n tn I don't know if I am looking at addiction or depression. If it is simply depression, I will respond differently than if it is addiction. If it is heroin addiction, I know I have to step back and let him decide when he is ready to deal with it. I don't want to make the wrong assumption. He says drugs are no longer an issue. How do I know?
Avatar n tn and an MRI of the brain to evaluate for a structural cause. Depression is more tricky, there is no blood test for depression and the diagnosis is usually made based on clinical judgement. In cases of cognitive change, depression is often evaluated by a trial of antidepressant medication to see if things improve, inaddition to Neuropsych testing which can sometimes identify depression.
Avatar f tn My wife is now very faithfully taking her medication. Her personality seems to be back to normal for her. But when she quit about a year ago, she became "another person". What I fear is that she is blaming her actions on the lack of thyroid hormone. I wonder if the lack of hormone can really cause that marked of a change in personality. I am talking about a librarian becoming a stripper type of change.
Avatar f tn Over the last 4-5 months, my father (663 yrs old) has displayed changes in mood and personality. It seemed to begin with some mild depression symptoms and trouble sleeping and then progressed to some anxiety issues, in that he is worrying over small things. There have been some displyes of behavior that are drastically different than his normal. My parents have been together for 40 something years and own a business together.
Avatar f tn I do not like to talk to people about this, because they may think I am stupid, or worse that I am over-reacting. I have done every possible online test for borderline personality disorder, and I am almost convinced that that is what it could be. I was just wondering if someone could relate all of these things that I have described to some sort of a mental disorder, because I am almost certain that all this cannot be normal. I am emotionally drained, and I would appreciate the help.

Avatar f tn Then you also need to get your father investigated for other causes of such problems like liver dysfunction (get liver enzymes done—liver function test), kidney dysfunction (get kidney function test done), and anemia. Do discuss this with your doctor and get him examined. Hope he is fine soon. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn he needs the test. but the personality change has been the worse. i feel like when he says hurtful things or does things that hurt my heart that it just doesn't matter. he is living life the way he wants to. that is how he comes across.he was the most loving /strong/ sweetest/most tenderhearted person i have ever known that would have given me the world if he could. now i feel i am in the way in his world. i have not known how to deal with this.
Avatar f tn This is the second part of the article, and deals with cognitive issues that change personalities in MS. ____________________________ MS and Cognition The other set of personality changes that we see with MS [is] caused by the impact of the disease on the brain. Until recently MS was not thought to cause cognitive problems. But it is now estimated that as many as 60% of people with MS have at least mild Cognitive problems.

Avatar n tn Some 30 months ago I started getting depression. Loss of interest in everything, sleeping all the time, no energy,a real personality change. I did nothing for at least 6 months. It stay the same so visited a doctor, and having told him I had suffered from depression some years before (well I was told thats what it was), I was put on to anti-depression meds. No change. Another type was change in mood.
Avatar n tn I was very blue and hopeless, cried much, experienced withdrawal symptoms, had a high stress/high profile job that I both loved and hated due to a controlling personality conflict with a superior. I had suicidal thoughts but no action. At my primary physician, depression was queried. Then a gynecologist, PMS was queried as well as depression. Due to embarrassment, I paid cash for a private psychologist for 3 sessions- PMDD was the diagnosis along with stress associated with my employment.
Avatar f tn my doc hasnt call me back about my blood test so I guess everything is fine even though I tested Positive on a urine test. I know she would of called if there was a problem. Its just hard exp. during the hoildays. Thankful? for what my baby that past. Its hard, I just pray for everyone who has gone and going through this and I hope we all get pregnant sooner than we can imagion. I can't wait until we are all posting about our big bellys and our healthy babies kicking us all the day.
Avatar m tn That is the depression talking.I just watched a documentary on depression yesterday at 4am (couldn't sleep due to MY depression ha ha). It was people from all walks of life battling it. From a gang member to corporate execs. You know what, now they can see depression! MRI's can see the activity on the frontal lobe of the brain. I won't go into the mumbo jumbo, I am a nurse and I get fascinated by this stuff but they are on the edge many new treatments that don't involve meds. Hallelujah!
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 n tn Everyone I have ever known or heard of that got off any opiates was left with severe depression. Is this a standard side effect and how long will it last and how is it best treated? My friend's nephew just went to an addiction doctor who gave him buprenorphine injections and other scripts to get off pain pills. When he asked about an anti-depressant the doctor said "no mood enhancers for addicts." This seems unusual to me.
