  • 1Is this severe depression I'm experiencing?

    I've been slowly becoming sad over six months after finally finishing college . I've been having trouble finding a job , leaving the house , etc. Anyway , in the last month and a half , I've been missing meals because I was not interested in food , but this month I have not been eating much . I can eat once a day , if that much and I lay on my bed all day with no energy to get up and do something . All the things you used to do, I do it because I'm not interested . I am concerned that now tired of revenge and take a shower . I lay in my bed all day and think , I can not sleep because when I close my eyes , I feel anxious and I feel so much mental pain . Today I am more concerned that I was out of it and not myself at all, just thin places in the house to sit and I stare at the wall until you drift to sleep . I looked and saw other people going through this with similar symptoms , so what could I do about it ? It's almost like my friends and I have been fighting and working hard , seem to land jobs , while I did not even get a call for an interview , so you can not afford to go out or do anything right now .

  • 3Any woman experiencing severe PMS symptoms? How about Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder?

    PMDD is a severe, disabling form of PMS. In PMDD, the main symptoms are mood disorders such as depression, anxiety, tension, and persistent anger or irritability. These severe symptoms lead to problems with relationships and carrying out normal activities. Women with PMDD usually also have physical symptoms, such as headache, joint and muscle pain, lack of energy, bloating and breast tenderness. The symptoms occur during the two weeks before her period and go away when bleeding begins. For me, two–three weeks a month everyday, for the last nine months, I've been suffering from PMS symptoms consisting of forehead headaches, body pain, sensitivity to touch, nausea and motion sickness. I’m 32. I think it’s hormonal. I would like to know of any herbal remedies that anyone has. I currently take Evening Primrose and I’m going to try Kava. I tried Prozac, but it made me feel worse. Your personal story and ideas to ease suffering would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  • 10What do you do to feel better or get through when you're experiencing an anxiety/panic attack or depression?

    I'm currently going through some medical problems. I am a young adult and have been formally diagnosed with hypothyroidism, pernicious anemia, hormone/vitamin imbalances, sleep apnea and subclinical Cushing's. These illnesses have been physically devastating as well as mentally hard to push through. While dealing with these problems, I have added severe stress being put on me due to personal matters within my life. This stress has put me into a depression and the last few days I've had panic/anxiety attacks on and off. I already feel physically horrible when everything is okay, so this additional stress is taking a bad toll on me. I feel physically and emotionally crippled and I just want to feel better and stop the anxiety for some sort of relief. Any suggestions? All advice is appreciated xx

  • 11If I were experiencing physically-induced depression, would these feelings be normal?

    I've been having some very significant physical symptoms for the last few months, but the worst thing was that these terrible emotional changes / mental. Honestly I'm not depressed about something - well, I am, but so far I'm really upset cognitive seems inconsistent with what I feel. It makes no sense, enjoying everything is impossible. I can not relax, but I'm not so anxious or worried ... I have a positive attitude towards life and decent self-esteem. This feels nothing like depression and anxiety I have had in the past - there is nothing to think or do does it better, and exercise makes it worse . I know it sounds like it could be deleted or detach my emotions somehow, but I thought about it, and I really do not think it's possible. And I've been told by medical professionals that is highly unlikely my (observable) physical symptoms are caused by stress. But I do not know, my general practitioner did not seem to take very seriously, because I have a history of depression and anxiety, although they refer me to a neurologist, I see in a week. I started to feel unreal at times when the feelings (physical, mental and emotional) are the worst (even bad all the time). Like, I know I'm not really feeling well - at least I think I'm not - and it's awful, not being able to feel totally my own emotions. I am fully aware of them, I have not gone blank, is like being smothered in some way, not going through all the way. Like my real self is limited to a small part of my brain and can not stretch their legs. I can not think clearly or simply be aware is exhausting. So, is this normal? I guess my question is: if psychological problems have a physical cause would necessarily change their attitude /'d be aware of the disconnect between what you feel if your brain is functioning independently of physical problems, and what your body is making you feel ? (Sorry, could not think of a better way to word that!) Thank you. :)
