3143186 tn?1342986441 I feel like I am caged in the deep recesses of my soul. I am definitely suffering from Major Depression and I hate it. I know it is only a feeling and feelings change and it is just going to take another week or two before I feel better. I just pray to God and ask Him to take this burden from me....or at least lessen my burden. I need to touch the hem of the robe of Jesus to get healed. Please Father, Help Me Cope!!!
1453060 tn?1287443316 Today I set my alarm for 8am. I wanted to wake up early but unfortunately I didnt wake up till 4pm! When I woke I felt so depressed and dope sick. I missed all of my classes and I missed my doctors appointment. If I dont change my ways I will either end up dead or in jail. My goal is stay starting this month. I couldnt acheive this goal because I did not have any subs to keep withdrawal symptoms down so I went saw my heroin dealer for 3 bags so I could feel normal.
Avatar f tn Having a really tough time today! Am not really thinking of ways to die, but am definitely thinking of reasons for it. Again, idealizing the end of life and the pain as it is, more so than anything. Came to many realizations today and just want to run and hide from the rest of the world, until it passes, or life is just over. Not feeling like this is the only way out, just feeling like this is just a final release of all that I have held onto or what sometimes holds on to me.
Avatar f tn Woke up feeling depressed. Texted Justin to see if he wanted to eat at my moms house tonight and naturally that was a no. Was frustrated and fed up, he didn't do the drive way yesterday and is showing no signs of coming home to do it. Pissing me off. So depressed, so suicidal. Do not want to call anyone, just stuck in it. Want to be left alone! I feel done in life. So so sad today. Justin came home with Kirsten, I went back to bed.
Avatar n tn oh, and normal for one guy can be low or high for the next, the set value standard is stone age medicine, diagnosis should be subjective to the patients symptoms, per AACE Medical Guidelines for Clinical Practice for Evaluation and Treatment of Hypogonadism, 2004 update. Personally i cant function at levels below the upper 2/3s of the "normal" range.
Avatar m tn I am trying to get something in writing to show that this decision does not follow within the accepted guidelines for treatment of his form of Hepititis. I believe the Dr. in Az. may have made this decision not realizing he did not have a 12 week blood sample. My son is 43 years old and in otherwise good health. He has not had any symptoms of Hep C nor has he had any side effects from the treatments.

Avatar n tn A recent prospective cohort study found that although only 11% of patients treated with peginterferon/ribavirin met criteria for major depression, yet more than one third developed symptoms of moderate to severe depression during treatment. Whereas interferons are generally known to be associated with psychiatric side effects, this study was one of the first to identify a dose-related association between PEG interferon/ribavirin treatment and depression.

Avatar n tn i was diagnosed with hep c ten years ago and thought i was fine because i never had symptoms. i finally went to an internal med dr., 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.
Avatar m tn It's usually done for major unresponsive depression. I wish I could answer your question but I really have never heard of this treatment being used for anxiety.
Avatar m tn As opposed to European (EASL) 2012, Asian-Pacific (APASL) 2012, American (AASLD) 2009, and World Health Organisation (WHO) 2015 major guidelines for the treatment of chronic Hepatitis B, the following 3 guidelines are more strict on the conditions leading to necessity of treatment for Hepatitis B, HBeAg negative carriers: Canadian 2009, Japanese (JSH) 2013, and UK/British (NICE) 2013 guidelines are more "strict" when it comes to treatment of negative HBsAg patients, especially in the

209227 tn?1242346745 I was diagnosed w/ Major Depression and an eating disorder 20 years ago and have been on Antidepressants ever since. Does anyone know of a good top-rated Antidepressant I can take that does not cause weight gain. I recently got back on Wellbutrin - 300 mg, but feel I need a little more of something. Was on Cymbalta but had to go off of it because I was sleeping to much when I was taking it. I was sleeping way to much. Felt like I was sleeping my life away on the Cymbalta.
Avatar f tn Hi I have posted a question in the heart rhythm forum but I am hoping that maybe someone will be able to help me here. I have major depression but my GP hasn't been able to find any medication that I can use as I also have Long QT and many antidepressants could cause a cardiac arrest (which I have had before) - I have been suffering depression for the last 4 - 6 months and after my mother's death 10 days ago I am ready to just give up.
Avatar n tn Depression is a hard thing for a person to understand if they have never been depressed and your wife needs to do some research to find out what the symptons are and what it does to a person. I have major depression and have had it for as long as I can remember, so I understand how you are feeling! Please find a doctor ASAP to find out if you are suffering from depression and remember that your children need their father!!!!
Avatar f tn Cause I heard memory loss and sleep disorder can be due to depression but in the meantime Hypersomnia/Narcolepsy can lead to depression. Only God knows how thankful I AM to YOU. Thanks.
