  • The hardest people to love are the ones who need it most. In honour of Valentine’s Day, here are some ideas for showing love to friends and family members with anxiety/ depression: 1.) Give Compliments: Chances are, someone who suffers from anxiety/depression also struggles with self esteem. Help her challenge her feelings of self loathing by giving her sincere, specific compliments. Being specific is really important, because it will make her more likely to remember what you said later. It will also make her more likely to believe you. For example, instead of saying, “You’re a good mom,” you could say something more meaningful: “You are so patient with your children. I love how you encourage them to keep trying. They are so lucky to ...

  • CDC Study Finds Nearly 1 in 12 Americans Struggles with Depression & Only a Third of Severely Depressed People Seeking Help A new study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has found that between 2009-2012, 7.6 percent of Americans age 12 and over had depression. Depression occurred more often among females and among adults aged 40-59. In addition, people living below the poverty level were more than twice as likely to experience depression. There are many reasons people with depression don't get treatment, for example, some people don't realize they have an illness that can actually be treated. Other barriers to treatment include the stigma that continues to surround mental illness and those who seek treatm ...

  • I can say that with years of use, my antidepressents caused me to lose some of my human feelings. My caring and loving feelings. I became numb to what was going on around me. I was no longer interested in sex and actually divorced my ex husband because he needed someone that cared for him as he was suffering with severe disabilities and I had become cold and uncaring to his plight. I ended up just leaving him without much notice and moving away. I took myself off of the antidepressents and then became sexually aware again with caring and feeling towards other people. I have been on again off again with several different antidepressents and have had the same reaction each and every time. When I came off of Cymbalta, I wanted to kill my

  • Side-effects of anti-depressants worse than thought Date: February 25, 2014 Source: University of Liverpool Summary: Thoughts of suicide, sexual difficulties and emotional numbness as a result of anti-depressants may be more widespread than previously thought, a researcher has found. In a survey of 1,829 people who had been prescribed anti-depressants, the researchers found large numbers of people -- over half in some cases -- reporting on psychological problems due to their medication, which has led to growing concerns about the scale of the problem of over-prescription of these drugs. "While the biological side-effects of antidepressants, such as weight gain and nausea, are well documented, the psychological ...

  • Posted a new discussion, Depression is….
    Depression is…. By Hopeworkscommunity Depression is a peculiar form of blindness.  Its cruelty is in convincing you that finally you have sight. It leaves you afraid to get up in the morning for fear of a day you can neither stop or survive.. It tells you the only important thing is how you feel.  Finally you hope you dont feel. It leaves you alone in a crowd.  You know that no one knows.  Theirs is a language of a different world.   It is a room in which you live but never enter. It is a lie… the ultimate seduction.  It would have you forget what can be and forget what has been.  It would keep you in the hole until you become convinced you are the hole. You can leave.  It doesnt want you to know.  Perhaps in slow steps but in step ...

  • I had a black dog, his name was depression 04:19
    I had a black dog, his name was depression At its worst, depression can be a frightening, debilitating condition. Millions of people around the world live with depression. Many of these individuals and their families are afraid to talk about their struggles, and don't know where to turn for help. However, depression is largely preventable and treatable. Recognizing depression and seeking help is the first and most critical towards recovery. In collaboration with WHO to mark World Mental Health Day, writer and illustrator Matthew Johnstone tells the story of overcoming the "black dog of depression".

    siteadmin When others seem to be enjoying life, the black dog stands in the way for a lot of people. If you're wondering WTF I'm talking about, watch the video. And if you recognize any of this, maybe it's time to think about taking some steps to look after yourself.451 days ago

  • U.S. health officials have announced a new rule that requires insurance companies to cover treatment for mental illnesses and addiction the same way they cover physical illnesses. The rule ensures that health plan features like copays, deductibles and visits limits are not more restrictive for mental health and substance use disorders benefits than they are for medical or surgical benefits. https://www.naidw.org/groups/viewdiscussion/1317-new-rule-boosts-insurance-coverage-for-mental-health-a-substance-use-disorders?groupid=69

I can say that with years of use, my antidepressents caused me to lose some of my human feelings. My caring and loving feelings. I became numb to what was going on around me. I was no longer interested in sex and actually divorced my ex husband because he needed someone that cared for him as he was suffering with severe disabilities and I had become cold and uncaring to his plight. I ended up just leaving him without much notice and moving away. I took myself off of the antidepressents and then became sexually aware again with caring and feeling towards other people. I have been on again off again with several different antidepressents and have had the same reaction each and every time. When I came off of Cymbalta, I wanted to kill myself. It became really hard for people to be around me or even deal with me. I became very angry. I am stuck with the fact that I cannot live without the antidepressents and I don't like myself when I'm on them. I have not found a happy medium yet. I am still a work in progress.
