  1. It takes a lot of courage to push through hard times. Never give up. Good things are coming your way.
  2. Is Zoloft any good for you? Depression should be treated by combining meds and psychotherapy. You could talk to your doctor about it. Psychotherapy can help eliminate or control troubling symptoms so a person can function better and can increase well-being and healing. Research shows that most people who receive psychotherapy experience symptom relief and are better able to function in their lives. About 75 percent of people who enter psychotherapy show some benefit from it. Psychotherapy has been shown to improve emotions and behaviors and to be linked with positive changes in the brain and body. The benefits also include fewer sick days, less disability, fewer medical problems, and increased work satisfaction.
  3. I see that. You are in a very complicated situation... But still he needs to see a doctor...
  4. Just ask your doctor about it, he should know what it is I suppose.
  5. Insomnia can both cause anxiety and be caused by anxiety.
  6. How are you doing? I'm shocked by the quantity of medicines you've tried. Why not to have pharmacogenetic testing done? It determines how effective the medicine is for you and all possible side effects. I'm sure there's no point in experimenting with your body.
  7. Never stop trying. Never stop believing. Never give up. Your day will come.
  8. Laziness is a value judgement. It's someone saying 'you aren't doing enough' (that person may be yourself). Because it's a value-judgement, when you say someone is lazy you are saying their behaviour and choices are bad. Critically, there isn't a hard and fast rule about what is good/bad behaviour, it's based on values and beliefs about what someone 'should' be doing which varies from person to person. It can be a rather nasty thing to say to someone, because everyone has different inclinations and abilities - someone who really dislikes physical activity, for example, is often called 'lazy' - regardless of the fact they put in 12 hour days in academic research. One person might derogatively call another lazy just because they have different beliefs about how tidy a house should be, have different types of job, or different preferences for hours of work. Depression, on the other hand, is more easily identified as an involuntary state, exhibiting measureable symptoms, and with more far reaching fatigue, disordered thinking and low mood. Whereas some people will make a value-judgement about the worth of someone with depression, when you say someone 'is depressed' or 'has depression' (provided you do not do so in a way that implies you don't believe they actually have depression) you are recognising that some factor other than the person's choices are impacting on them. Putting aside certain complex arguments about the credibility of psychiatry for the time being, depression isn't a value-judgement in the same way as 'laziness' is - having depression isn't 'bad' behaviour any more than having a broken arm is.

  10. How is it going? I takes a lot of courage to push through hard times. But remember - never give up. Good things are coming your way.
  11. Нow are you getting on? When I'm depressed I meditate. Meditation has many benefits, relief for stress and depression being among them. Meditation helps to become more peaceful and less worried about discomfort. Hobbies are a great distraction from depression and anxiety, and I find them healing too. When I focus on my hobbies, I don't react to world around me.
  12. Thank you very much for your poem
  13. How are you getting on? Depression should be treated. Unfortunately, one sad fact about depression is only one-third of the number of people suffering from depression actually seek professional treatment. Go to your GP first and get your blood tests done.There are ways to cope and to improve how you're feeling, but you should seek help.
  14. I'm keen on meditation, it has many benefits for me, relief for stress and anxiety being among them.
