354706 tn?1279470795 My mum’s OVCA treatment went so smooth that it is almost unbelievable. Just consider this – stage 4, abdominal filled with cancer spreading to liver, colon, diaphragm and spleen. As there is no hope of optimal debulking, the doctor tried chemo first. After 2 chemo, CA125 dropped from 165 to 15. CT scan revealed that most tumors were gone/shrunk. During operation after 3 chemo, very little signs of chemo and an optimal debulking.

127005 tn?1205019495 Chances are, you know, that I am. Depression comes with relapses just as alcoholism does. Having both is a pretty good indicator of some kind of relapse. Being on pain meds, opiates, for the last 3 weeks doesn't help either. Although the closest I came to drinking after almost 2 years of sobriety was when I was in pain and not medicated. The physical pain is gone. The pain meds are gone. The shame that energizes my diseases is stirring in me. Keep quiet please. Please, please keep quiet.
5536514 tn?1373500002 I am starting treatment in april or may. Doctor wants to make sure I am mentally stable first. I am terrified, because I am meds for depression and ptsd and anxiety and panic attacks. I am afraid the treatment will drive my over the edge. the doctor says it will make me twice as tired as I am now. I am scared. I also found out I am borderline diabetic. I need to get up out of myself. Its hard. I gotta try.

Avatar f tn I think I may be suffering from depression, which is causing other problems in my daily life. I have low self esteem, have trouble sustaining relationships, and am very lonely. In times of sadness or anger I try to comfort myself with food, which leads to binge eating. Often I have suicidal thoughts, but I'm always too afraid to actually go through with it. Can anything help me with these issues?
Avatar f tn Food is all I have. ..... It's what makes me feel comfortable in the midst of this misery...... until tomorrow.
4190741 tn?1370177832 3 Foods Linked with Depression By Deborah Enos, Columnist It's no secret that we tend to eat a little more around the holidays. And with all the hustle and bustle of the season, many of us have trouble finding time to make healthy choices. That may be why it's nearly impossible to secure a treadmill at the gym in January — our resolutions are a reflection of our guilt. We know why we tend to eat poorly.
Avatar f tn i have a question about a med. Its lexapro. i was wondering if u can get pregnant while u are on it. if so what do i have to do.
901137 tn?1267626189 The 4th and 5th treatments have gone pretty much as the first three. I met with my primary doctor yesterday and reported that I have felt little change through the 4th session. It seems we will extend past the original six to as many as nine in this sequence. The nursing staff at the hospital have assured me that this is not unusual. I continue to be fortunate in not experiencing significant memory loss so far.
Avatar m tn Also, if you are drinking or doing any kind of illegal drugs, go ahead and stop doing that for a while. Instead, get into eating good food. Go out to eat a few times a week. Buy some orange juice and cereal and milk and have that every morning. Eat a hamburger with lettuce and tomato for lunch. Also, get you some eye drops for your eye, so it won't bother you so much. And drink a few extra glasses of water each day, so your voice will do a little better.
Avatar f tn I'm currently seeing a counsellor concerning depression/anxiety, and am still wavering on the idea about telling her of my binging/laxatives/over exercising. Is a counsellor qualified anough to give me the support I want? She is unable to give out medication, and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. Would you advise seeing someone different (a psychologist) and requesting medication, or sticking with therapy? What has/hasn't worked for you?
Avatar f tn I am not a counselor but your story about your food and food choices and eating habits and concerns sound like an ED to me. When someone is pouring so much energy and time and thinking into a process like eating which in the long run is something that every living creature has to do to survive, then there is a problem..
424549 tn?1308515502 I write this because ... I don't know... Maybe it is because I know that the way out of depression lies on YOU, YOUR MOTIVATION to break out is YOUR WAY? It took a book (and being on medications for my SAD) for me to get out of my depression. It took the motivation to look for ways out. It didn't take more than one of all those hundreads of ways!!! We've got to look for what fits our life and existence. That, dear reader, is the way out! I read a book about Ayurveda.

Avatar m tn Someone close to me is battling depression. I'd known it for some time. I encouraged this person to reach out to professionals, but like me, there was a reluctance to do so. "It'll pass" he told me. Some time later, it was obvious to me that this person was still struggling so I brought up the idea of seeking help again. "It'll pass" he said. "It's okay to have a down day every once in a while isn't it" he added.
