  1. I am a Porn Addict myself, although I don't look at it anymore. I started with finding my Great Uncles stash at around 5 then later my fathers stash at a young age also. Then a warehouse of it, where they threw the old magazines and books away. There was a stack 6 ft deep the entire warehouse. I got heavily hooked--and it was free. Like a drug or alcohol it can control you or you can begin to control it. it does affect your relationships with women. You must get it out of your home and off your internet. There are several help sites and there is also some sites that have a No Override for Porn filter for your computer and a filter for the TV. I can say this cause I know it too be true for myself. Tell your Pdoc, tell a support person or group like you have did us. I belong to a group of men who meet each week just to encourage each other in our Walk and we are free to ask anything about any others problems, without fear of it going anywhere else. It is going to be hard, but for your self You must do this. We will want to know how YOU are doing. Just like an alcoholic can't carry a fifth in the trunk, You must get this out of your home,vehicle,hiding place whereever else yu can keep yourself away from this For Your on welfare. Be wanting to hear how you are getting along from time to time in this Walk to an improved mind. Wishing You Well, Just Never Give Up-----there is Help out there for You
  2. Hi Vanilla, I agree with Adam. I have been taking trazodone 200mg for around 8 years at pm for sleep. It helped me immediately with no hangover. I can take it at 10:00pm and get up at 4:00am to go hunting with no droziness.

  5. I don't know about the Christmas Depression but I do know about the Winter Depression. My Pdoc recommended after 3 years in a row of being hospitalized for severe depression in the Fall or Winter. I changed out most of the lights in the house to the New Daylight brightness lights. They give off a Bright White light instead of the warm yellow glow of standard lights. It has made a difference for me. Plus knowing I will have to watch myself for any odd behaviors or triggers during the fall and winter. . I also force myself to stay busy during this time of the year. Hope this Helps You as Well
  6. Hi, I've been happily married to my best friend, confidant, supporter, and lover for a great 37 years now. She had deppresion as the children were born, worked her way out of it. She completely understands how it is to feel this way. I have had chronic severe depression for 20 years now. I am much better now after getting on the right combo of meds for me, learning all the coping techniques of CBT and EBT. Yes, I am not the man she married but she is not the same woman I married. We both have changed for what I believe is the better.

  13. So Sorry for Your Suffering Sae, inorder to break this suffering and cycle of feelings you may need to do something different. For me I called my Pdoc and checked my self into the Phospital He was working with. Inhospital my cycle was broken by starting on different meds and receiving encouagement. There I also received a great deal of individual CBT and Group Therapy.. I would highly recommend it. I have been inhospital for help several times and always left with stonger and more tools for copeing against the Depression and Anxiety. I am a better man for it. Just Never Give Up. There is Help out there

  21. Hi Brown, I also have treatment resistant depression. I have greatly improved for the long term since being on the right combination of meds for me. You must never give up and when one combination of meds doesn't help or helps for awhile then seems to not work anymore don't be afraid to tell your Pdoc about it. You can and will get betterl. My Pdoc finally sent me to a Pdoc friend of his 5 hr. away, but this Pdoc's thinking was "out-of-the-box". He started me on a combination that I had never tried. That was the start of finding out what would work for me long term. I've never been afraid to place myself inhospital for a change of meds and daily therapy, treatment, and always came out with more tools to cope, fight and challenge Depression. I am a better man for it. I've sought CBT and EBT therapy. PLUS bought self-help workbooks to help me in the fight. I can't say I'm cured but I can say the times I sink into deep depression are now much less. I can never let my guard down,The Giant Depression would certainly like me to quit fighting and let him throw me into the Pit of Despair, Depression and Anxiety. But we are in a Battle for our very lives. We must get all the knowledge, understanding and treatment we can get to overthrow this in our lives. iF YOU READ a lot of the forums they will help.too Fight On, Never Give UP There is Help for You outhere----keep Searching

Just Never Give Up There is Help for You
