    Natural herbs for anxiety

    Good evening, I am in a constant state of high alert. I am taking zoloft at night .5 mg for anxiety and depression. Can I take magnesium 400mg, and inisotol (b-8)to help with anxiety.

I am studying cognitive behavior therapy on line to help with my thought process that is causing my anxiety. Carrie

    Bad Bipolar, bad decision, or just bad

    My daughter and I both have bipolar disorder and have a hard time in social situations. It seems that we both go from awkward moment to awkward moment, not knowing how to relate to others. There is an ebb and flow to body language, eye contact, voice tone and modulation, and emotional response that eludes us. We have enough burned friendships that we are phobic about starting any new ones. One day she asked me a question about where our bipolar ends and we begin. I told her that I end up second guessing....

  • I'm 14. Depression or Dysthymia... Or both?

    I am 14 years old and have been experiencing symptoms of some sort of depression for over six years. I didn't realize that what I had been feeling was not normal until about a month ago.

The only problem I find with Dysthymia is that it is supposed to be mild with only 2 or 3 symptoms, whereas I am experiencing far more. I've taken ten different online tests and every....

    bipolar or not?

    So, at 18 years old (I am currently 23) I was diagnosed in a mental facility as bipolar. Now, as I study the disorder I noticed there is type 1, 2, and rapid cycling and recently when I visited my psychiatrist she diagnosed me with bipolar depression. I don't understand what this means. My episodes are basically : for a good 7-8 months depressed; then a good 4-5 months I'm manic then it happens all over again. I normally wouldn't care what the diagnosis is but it's been agitating....
