    So, in the past few days I have decided to go into hospital because I feel I can't take it anymore and that I am a threat to myself, I felt really confident about my choice on Monday night after doing research on hospitals etc I've told my therapist of my hospital plans and he said he would tell my psychiatrist, so the ball is rolling, but the last 2 days I'm doubting it, I know for my health I...

    I lost my wife a year ago to a heart attack and she was only 38. I am still dealing with issues from this. I feel so empty and alone even if I am with family and friends. When I sit alone on my off days I really get depressed and miss her so bad.

    Am I the only one who finds that exercising makes them feel sadder? You read again and again that it will help with depression, but working out leaves me feeling so sad.

    No understanding.

    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...
  • 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
  • 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.

    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.
