I can be happy at times, I can dance to songs and they make me feel something. But I always feel lack of energy and sometimes it feels like I'm walking towards thick air. I don't really feel like socializing and whenever I do I tend to feel exhausted after wards. I need to spend a lot of time on my own. I'm only 21 but I always feel tired when I do a lot of things. My thoughts go round and I feel negative emotions and sometimes everything feels meaningless. I already suffer from anxiety and panic disorder, but I wonder if I could possibly have depression as well!? I already go see a psychiatrist and do CBT for my anxiety but I'm thinking about medication. I just wonder if there are any other anti anxiety pills instead of anti-depressants. I've heard from people with the same problem as me who has taken anti-depressants and it didn't work.
yes I have struggled with depression and have tried 8 different anti-depressants.. but how do meds help YOU? for me it didn't solve anything. I am just curious because there are SO many people on anti-depressants. and i know to help with the symtoms but do people think medicine is suppose to help EVERYTHING and when people start to feel depressed they should go straight to a anti-depressants? Any Thoughts, comments anything ?

I hate how people just throw dumb childish stuff about people with mental health problems. I have mental health problems, yea, because I struggle with psychosis and manic depression, which is btw a real disease and not something you should put the person more down with some by saying it's for attention or something uneducated like that. Like this society just really doesn't give a dam* about people with mental problems, and they just run away because they don't seem to get it, well there's research for it..I mean that's not even my point, I just don't like to get made fun of all the time just as someone with cancer or diabetes wouldn't like that!
I don't understand how people say depression and anxiety are illnesses and all that. But illnesses are visible and can be treated to the core. As for the "illnesses or diseases" they aren't treated at the core.They are symptoms of something. So your not really treating depression, your treating the symptoms of depression. Is it serotonin? How can serotonin be measured tho? is there a blood work? any types of test or MRIs or anything like that? or is it just a guessing game. I always thought depression was a symptoms of a cause, of a medical condition.Medical condition also meaning neurological. But the thing is scientist don't know 100% what is truly causing this their just jumping up with theories and testing them out on people, but aren't their away that they are just suppressing peoples emotions and that can even be twice as dangerous as the person even starting the medications. I just believe people are mistaken Depression as an illness rather than a symptoms of an illness which can be Serotonin (even tho scientist still have no idea on measuring serotonin) or a medical condition or a biological issue or other things. [Although it is widely believed that a serotonin deficiency plays a role in depression, there is no way to measure its levels in the living brain. Therefore, there have not been any studies proving that brain levels of this or any neurotransmitter are in short supply when depression or any mental illness develops. Blood levels of serotonin are measurable -- and have been shown to be lower in people who suffer from depression – but researchers don't know if blood levels reflect the brain's level of serotonin. Also, researchers don't know whether the dip in serotonin causes the depression, or the depression causes serotonin levels to drop] http://www.webmd.com/depression/recogniz…

So I've just started to notice that I've been having rather violent moods swings. One day in the morning I might be the happiest person you'll ever meet then after lunch I'll be quiet and withdrawn and wishing people would leave me alone. Only two or three people can get me to talk in full sentences when I'm in my "bad moods" and that's my two best friends and my boyfriend. I've been dismissing it as teen hormones because I'm 13 but I really starting to get worried. My mood swings have been getting worse and I've had two suicide threats. I'm afraid it's bipolar depression because one day I'm on top of the world and then I'm wishing I'd die. If I do have bipolar depression then it's only slight because when I go manic I'm not a madman or anything. So? Am I?
Plz don't put sites
Let's say the secretary at your office is 25 years old, completely normal in every respect -- she comes to work on time, she cracks jokes, she's well-groomed and keeps up with the fashion trends, etc. Then boom! One day she wakes up with schizophrenia. She comes to work with her hair looking like a bird's nest. She keeps mumbling, and nobody understands what she's saying. She seems to want something, but nobody knows what.
what are the differences in brain chemistry, and treatments?
question 1: if you are, say, depressed, do you feel sad ALL the time, or just some of the time (you still laugh or smile a little sometimes...but it depends.) question 2: if these are my symptoms, could i have depression? -tiredness all the time -not wanting to do things i used to do -just want to sleep away life -not want to socialize with anybody -think a ton about suicide, and have attempted it.
I've been depressed for a few years. I'm sixteen now. I've been seeing my therapist for a little over a year, and my psychiatrist since the beginning of summer (of 2011). The psych diagnosed me as 'major depressive disorder with one major episode. The only anti-depressant i've been on has been zoloft, but i've been on mirtazapine (generic for remeron) and rozerem for my insomnia. Also, reclipsen for birth control. At some point that I can't distinctly remember I started lying to my therapist and psych and telling/convincing them that everything is getting better, but it really isn't. I still have suicidal thoughts sometimes, when they believe that they've stopped months ago. I can't bring myself to tell the truth after i've lied for so long. I just feel so hopeless. I live with my mom and she's the main reason I'm like this, so it's not like I can really confess that much to her. Please help if you can. Thanks.
What can I do to help with depression. I seem to go through stages and I'll be fine for a few weeks and then the next few weeks I'll feel like the world is going to end. I don't have enough money to see a psychologist or a psychiatrist nor would I want to take any pills. What can I do naturally?
She thinks that a prior co-work, whom I've never met, is trying to ruin her life. She also accuses myself and her friend of working with the girl to try to hurt her. She refuses to use the home computer because she thinks it is being monitored and the information being passed to that girl. She's even bought a trac phone recently because she thinks her cell is being monitored too. Sometimes she flips out and thinks I am conspiring against her and begins screaming and acting erratic like some kind of demon girl. When she does this, she won't listen to reason. She says that I know what I am doing to her and that I need to make it stop. It's if she's delusional. She even thinks that all this information is being gathered to track her job applications so that the employer can be contacted and told not to hire her. I love my wife more than anything and I don't even know who this ex co-worker girl even is. It's really starting to scare be because she is really sounding outlandish at times. Then the other time she is the sweetest girl I know, the one I married. I've looked into it on the net and it sounds like schizophrenia. I'm worried, what do I do? She is on paxil and Buspar for depression. I've tried to get her to see a doctor but she wouldn't go. It's ruining our marriage because she is really mean to me during these spells. All I do is think the most of her and she means everything to me.
My niece has been acting out violently when she gets angry. she throws things, and hits people. she hasnt been doing well in school because she told me that she couldnt concentrate and she could never focus on studying, and she always lost her homework or couldnt finish it. please help!
I was diagnosed with major depression and anxiety. Yet, when I read about schizophrenia, I found a lot of common symptoms with the ones I have. I'm really freaked out. What if the psychiatrist doctors who diagnosed me were wrong and I'm really going crazy.
