  • Why Did All This Happen To Me?... Anxiety, depression, suicide... Please Help!?

    I have nearly 16 years, and my life has changed dramatically over the last year. For me it's a long story. It started with me just concerned about the school, and then basically everything. Too the extent that I was completely terrified and could not sleep at all. I was just in this constant state of fear, they never stopped. This was about two years ago, when I started having these acute symptoms and just kept building. But I knew it was a permanent concern problem I've had for years but not bad. Basically, after a while, I decided just to see a psychiatrist, and was prescribed medication (prozac), which was perhaps 13 to 14 months. I was diagnosed with OCD / anxiety at the time. Later I was diagnosed with severe clinical depression, along with anxiety, about 1 year ago, and my doctor raised the dose to 40 mg of Prozac, which helped with depression, but not much with anxiety. Anyway, I started school in September of 09, as a completely different person, with all he had to deal with, and I did not want to see / talk to anyone else. Then I started skipping school, whereas before, I was a top student. They put me in the mental hospital three times last year, once in September, once in October and then from November 2009 to January 2010. It was by anxiety, depression, suicide, and I suppose other problems. I felt like I did not want to live in this world and I was thinking about substance abuse to cope, but I decided not to do any of that. Once or twice, I cut, because the anxiety was so bad, along the back depression in December. In the hospital, I was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome (a very mild form of autism), clinical anxiety, and depression. They gave me drugs Zyprexa, Risperdal, Seroquel, prozac, inderal and klonopin, but nothing has helped me in terms of anxiety / depression at all. Anyway, I continued to live life after being released from a psychiatric hospital in January, and used an excuse that I did in school, saying that I had some problems with pain or cancer, and had been tested, because I did not want everyone else to know what was going on with me. The only people who knew were the staff, and one of my really close friends. I started in early February CBT for generalized anxiety / depression, and so far has been very helpful in reducing anxiety, when faced with new situations, most distressing and stuff. I also started CBT for OCD specifically only a few days ago. During my stay in the mental hospital, I failed a course I'm taking summer school. Also recently changed medications. I was on seroquel, prozac and ativan (when necessary). Now, I'm almost completely out of prozac, zoloft and change I started taking two weeks ago, and I'm still taking Seroquel, and Ativan. Ativan helps me when I have severe anxiety / panic attacks, but I try to avoid taking it. I wonder how long it takes to produce, I'm still on prozac zoloft, but I am out of weaning. I feel strange, as if the world does not really exist, and you feel sick. I feel like I've been through a lot, and still suffering a lot, and will not improve, but I try very hard to stay positive. Also I have a lot of mood swings throughout the day, as if it could be really happy, angry, etc, and it happens a lot. Also, my social worker called me yesterday and said that the last time I was his (Tuesday), he thought I should see a psychologist to fill out a questionnaire, and so on. What do you think about? Do you think I will be better? Any of you, here have similar problems?

  • American in Northern Ireland: Psychiatrist for Major Depression?

    I recently relocated to the UK labor purposes . In recent months , I have started to develop symptoms of severe clinical depression . Although I've been trying to avoid it , has become an impediment to the daily operation of me that I now need psychiatric intervention . However, the medical system here is so different I do not know where to start . And being depressed , I'm so emotionally and mentally " tired " that almost no energy to write this. The doctors I've seen are more distant from what I'm used to in the U.S. .

Does anyone out there have any experience with this?

  • Should I talk to my doctor about depression?

    Well, where do you start. I have 13 years of age. The other night on the news they were talking about teen depression, and I had never thought about it until then. I never really thought there was something wrong with me, but after seeing that I'm starting to think about some things. I'm not exactly sure what girls my age normally do, so I can not really compare my lifestyle. So I'm asking here to be sure. Over the last year or so, I've been terribly irritated by everything, especially my mother. I love both, and generally got along so well, but sometimes she even be in my presence makes me want to break something. Second, all you really do is sit alone all day, sleep or play on the computer. I'm on vacation right now in PA, and a cousin came for a few days, and I've done anything to make her leave so I could be alone. I feel empty and exhausted when I'm alone, and for some reason do not want to be with anyone else. Often just lay in bed and wonder why we are still here, though I know I'll end up dying, and that's it. Nothing happens after that. You disappear. People will not remember you. My grandfather passed away in November last year, and I cried, but I can not seem to mourn over. Even sometimes I think, so what? He did not know me. I loved him, but he's dead. Not sure if this is related or not, but my back and neck have been hurting a lot, and sometimes I have headaches .. And I often feel dizzy and exhausted, even when I have not done anything all day. The thing is that I looked at depression symptoms online, and always seemed to speak of losing interest in things you like. Well, I like reading comic books (manga) and regular books, but I lost interest in that. I seem to like it much though. So please, I have only a chronic laziness and I am a deep thinker, or is my 13 year old life was not really supposed to be?
