Terrible depression for 3 days
December 31, 2012 10:24am CST
I have been getting disturb these 3 days, I went to the doctor today, and he says cannot reduce the intake of meds which I did earlier. What I felt is somebody talking to me about my past boyfriend and friends and family. Looks like I am going crazy hearing this. Now I got my eat my meds again just now and it keeps better. What about you? Do you feel terrible depress sometimes?

Sorry you are having those troubles. Have you tried going for long walks? Or doing a different activity like a sport? you need to get out and do something, rather than sit and think about those things. Get a new life. Happy new years. Take care of yourself there.

I feel depress sometimes but it would just take an hour or so. I usually think that it is better to sleep than to think of the depressing moments of my life. I also talk to my boy friend constantly. You should talk to a friend, it can really help you.

hi wongchoiyee I am sorry to hear how badly you feel. I was very depressed and sad when I first came to this tiresome retirement center but I decided I wanted to be happy so I decided each day to do something I enjoyed even if I did not want to be here as being on the street and homeless was no option for me at age 83 and I found things that I loved to do. Also my best friend Nelda was here for me all the time as was my adult son Robbie. I realikze mysituatin is not like yours but do try to reach out to anyone whom you really like as you need people to talk to, get a close fri end and start to think about something besides yourself.i am not trying to be mean asa I know how tou feel but pushing others away maked you really feel worse.Go to a friend who will not talk about your p ast boyfriend at all and find some way to connect again with life. do listen to your doctor too.hope you will soon start being happier as life and the world are really wonderful.

I'm afraid to say I think that talking about these things with a qualified is a good idea, with or without meds, but I can understand why you want to take them. Is there any option for you to talk about the issues that came up for you when you lowered the dose, with a qualified counsellor, psychologist, or whatever you have available, as there are obviously some things from the past that are upsetting you, and trying to work out why might be helpful in the longer term. Its not a quick solution, sorting these things out through talking therapies can take years, but it might be worth looking at.

I have had a terrible life, childhood, marriage, etc. So yes I have been very depressed by periods as well. To be honest I am not quite sure if all that happenend to me is the real reason. Perhaps it runs in the family, perhaps it's "just" a lack of vit D3. By now I can handle it also because I can feel a kind of change (inside of me). If I keep myself busy nothing will happen. In a very rare case I allow myself to feel miserable for some time. I think I deserve that after what happened to me. There is nothing wrong with that. Since I know I always managed (untill now) to get over it. Since I am taken vit D3 (high doses) I haven't had any depression anymore. So I think it does help. I can't say I feel more miserable during wintertime (lack of sun). If it's there it's just there, mostly without any reason at all.

..Divert your attention, always talk to someone you know can help you much about your concern. We can help you here at mulot, as family. Take your medication at the right time and have a sleep for a while. I get depress sometimes but I try to overcome it. I go to the mall or have my favorite food. You can over come it little by little.

Yes, I really feel depressed very frequently. I try to fight against depression but no result yet. I do not want to take medication because I heard many of them create addiction. Some herbal tea may help a little or Valerian pills when I'm in panic too. Now I try to find out the causes and eliminate them it I can. And I try to do the things that make me feel better such as seeing a friend and talk.

Yeah, I've gone through that. However I able to overcome it with support from one of my best friend since college and my family. I'm grateful to have them, as they don't judge me when I talk about problems I got and listen and support me through hard times. I think we all have been there. But I think to stop being depressed is to talk to your loved ones and eat healthy to keep your mind healthy and not to consider or obsess over the thing that made you depressed.

I do not know about the extent of your condition and I would definitely advise against you playing doctor with your medications' dosages. You need to remember that you are attended by a specialist and is the best person to your prescriptions. Even when you have adverse or side effects it is not up to you to change the dosage without consulting him in the first place. I believe other than medicating, you need to be active and go about with your life as normal as you possibly can. Get out of the house, socialize, work, catch up with your friends or personal hobbies, go shopping, eat your favorite desserts or simply anything you would regard as pampering yourself. Get together with good and positive friends or siblings. Create opportunities to make yourself useful like help out with house chores and errands to enhance your own personal self image. Take every completion as a reassurance of your self worth and as a way of avoiding negative thoughts and people who are of no help to your present condition. Go for and with successes and you will be successful.
