  • I had shoulder surgery (rotator cuff repair) 6 days ago and was prescribed oxicodin and ambien (pain and sleep respectively). Last night was the closest I have come to NOT wanting to live. Being out of contol of things (arm motion restricted, etc etc) really got me down, and I had a hard time seeing a way out of it.So I will use ALieve for pain and skip the sleeping pill.I never want to feel...

    Withdrawal

    I have what many would consider an embarrassing addiction -- internet porn -- and I am one week clean but it feels like a year. Working from home gives me access whenever I want and I've discovered that I use it to distract, I guess like everyone uses any drug. It was something I became reliant upon on a daily basis I guess to avoid thoughts, depression, anxiety. It soothes me similar to my food...

    Depressed

    I feel depressed. All I want to do is lay in bed and watch t.v. My husband will ask me why are you sad? I don't know what to tell him. We are going on vacation August 6 for 2 weeks. I see my psych in September.

    Hi everyone. So, I'm at work. My job is a HUGE source of anxiety for me. I do take Cipralex 20mg daily and I'm supposed to take Wellbutrin on top of that but I don't because I don't like the way it makes me feel. Anyway, I always feel like management hates me because of all the time from work I've missed. Even though I have doctor's notes and I've filled out all of the forms they ask me to have...

  • Sam had a Drs. appt. today and he was dreading it. Well his A1C was down over a whole point and he lost 10 pounds. He thought the results would be negative. I am happy for him.
  • Has anyone ever been prescribed a medication that made your depression worsen?My wife was prescribed Cymbalta, Celexa, Ativan, Seroquel and Trazadone and I think the medications that were meant to improve, made things worse

    Just very sad

    My marriage is ending, I have no friends that truly care about me and most days I can barely even get out of bed. I over eat over drink. I just really need some one to talk to. I have no family close to me. I'm tired of everything

    I know it's a year away but I'm really sad. Next summer, my boyfriend plans to move back to Alberta. He misses it. He wants me to come with him but I can't. Not if I want to live. My support system is here. My family, my friends, my psychiatrist, and even my job. I really love my job.I'm sad because I know our relationship has a time limit. I wish he would stay forever but I don't want him to be...

    feeling alone

    Sometimes I face a weekend alone. It happens. Other weekends I don't. It is scary and daunting to face a weekend alone. I have to admit at times that I've made a deliberate choice to be alone given the options. Here is what I mean: every year I would go to the holidays and my alcoholic father and violent brother would destroy it. I would go out of obligation and not to be alone. I wasn't...
