    I want to change meds

    I have been taking Trazodone, Zoloft, Levothyroxin, Rosuvastatin for cholesterol and Clonezepam for over 2 yrs. The zoloft lost its potency a while back. I think 2 yrs. I feel i have no energy, no appetite, not enjoying things. I told my doctor if he can try a new depression med for me. I got into a argument with a nurse asking me how do I know if doesn't work? It doesn't take a genius to figure it out. I more or less raised my voice to her and she was supposed to get back to me that day....

    I'm think i'm depressed

    I'm a 17-year old boy living in Ukraine. I think I'm depressed. I have a very anxious mood most of the day, apathic periods, and other symptoms. I cry at night, always close the door, even when I'm alone. I also lost interest in my previous hobbies of drawing and sculpting. I always feel down, like everything I do is pointless. I escape into videogames and online D&D forums. I've also noticed that I've begun to overeat. I have looked at scientific articles and works on the....

    Loss of balance during anxiety attacks

    I went into this year thinking everything was going to be great, and that I was finally going to overcome the monster that is anxiety. Now, three months into the year, I'm borderline agoraphobic, scared to even go to the grocery store because my panic attacks have been out of control as of late. I've been reading Barry McDonagh's "DARE," where it tells you to essentially invite the anxiety to happen, which is great, but when your anxiety causes you to become unbalanced ("loss....
  • Trying to be Better

    I have been dealing with depression for 6 years and I have been emotionally and physically on a downward spiral for a long time. Recently I have been trying to do better at school ( I am in high school) but every time I do I feel like I don't actually deserve to be better and that I'm just a little goddamned screw-up. I can't do anything right. Does anyone have any advice to sticking on the right path, Really I just want to cry and eat cupcakes.

    Two am, can't sleep...thanks anxiety

    It's two in the morning and I've been up since nine am yesterday. No sleep AT ALL. I contribute all of this to my stress and anxiety. Truth is, I have no idea whatsoever why I'm stressed! Ugh. I'm just going to try to fall asleep now. Wish me luck.

    Will it ever end?

    I'm 47 years old. Spouse, dad, and grandparent. I've been dealing with depression and anxiety most of my life. I started taking Zoloft about 19 years ago. Since then I've been on different medications for depression and anxiety. I've been in counseling and have a psychiatrist. In 2016 I volunteered to admit myself in a mental hospital. It's a rollercoaster for me! See depression is real and it doesn't ever go away. It's just some days are better than others. On a scale....

    Trying to get better

    I'm a college student with major depressive disorder (and probably anxiety but I really don't want to get diagnosed with more stuff). I haven't always been this depressed, but it's fluctuated for the past four or five years. My suicidal urges have been 'acting up' over the past several weeks, and I had a really bad episode while I was driving, resulting in a minor ticket and a not-fun conversation with my parents about how bad my situation actually was. They are understandably....

    Not impressed by most anti-anxiety meds

    I have to be honest, I've been switched back and forth between BuSpar and Vistaril for years, and neither one has been very effective in helping my anxiety. Currently, I am maxed out on BuSpar, and take Propanalol, and Prazosin as well...yet I still have chest pain on a regular basis. Nothing wrong with my heart, just anxiety related.

    alone with depression

    Wow, I feel so disconnected. Out of touch with family and friends; I miss my dog, even! Meds are ok but not everything. Music helps at times. youtube videos of dogs just help for a little bit. I like me but does anyone else? Everyone is so damn busy.
