  1. Morgan: You are so very articulate about what you are going through. You have been through many struggles. I admire the way you have drawn boundaries and worked hard to make a highly functional life for yourself. Well done. Really. I think that you have inner resources that will help you get through the pregnancy. I wonder if there are ways to expand your support network. You deserve healthy support during the next several months. Tim
  2. agonyme: OCD is so very difficult. And I'm sorry you are dealing with it. Plus, I"m sorry you are having to deal with it by yourself. That must be so hard. You deserve some relief from the symptoms. I've been helped by medicines. I know that you didn't get good results from a SSRI. Have you tried more than one? Do you have a physician that understands anxiety? If so I would talk with him/her about other kinds of medicines that might help. A medicine called Klonopin has helped me. It can be addicting though it hasn't been for me. My advice, I imagine, isn't that helpful. But I want you to know I read your post and I do understand the pain of OCD. It is real and it can hurt so bad. Tim
  3. SailingSoul: First, congratulations on your school accomplishments. Well done. This represents alot of hard work. I wish your family was more supportive. Your family does not show care for you in a way that is supportive. This must be draining and I can see why you would feel depressed or sad or lonely (or all three). I hope that you find the support you deserve. Tim
  4. I"m a middle child both in family of origin and a step family.
  5. Chumly: I certainly understand why you would feel rejected. And I can also tell you that it is not you. I don't know if the guy is a creep or not (it sounds a little creepy), but he does at the least sound like one you could not trust. That's his stuff. Not yours. Tim
  6. Keeping calm is easier said than done, isn't it? Sometimes deep breathing exercises helps me.
  7. So glad you posted. I'm sorry you are struggling. And sometimes it sounds like you have to fake it so others don't worry. That must be hard. How can we help?
  8. Hi Sentinel2 I was interested in your clear description of what you are experiencing. This all sounds very difficult. I am not a MD so I am in no way qualified to comment on a diagnosis for you. However, I have generalized anxiety and it involves a heightened sense of anxiousness about any number of things. Sometimes the anxiety is warranted (having to make a difficult personnel decision at work), sometimes it is not (being anxious meeting people new to me). My GAD has been treated sometimes more effectively than at other times with conversations with trusted friends and advisors, therapy, and various meds. I hope your life is a little less like hell today. And keep this conversation going as long as it is helpful to you. I hope you receive other responses. Tim
  9. Saprkzz: This sounds like a very difficult road to travel. Understatement. I'm sorry you have experienced such a struggle. It is unnecessary suffering, by which I mean you did nothing to deserve it and it isn't like you need to learn some life lesson. When symptoms go on for so long (at least for me) it signaled that there is a genetic and brain chemistry component to all this rather than exclusively some untapped personality or character issue. You mention counseling. Have you tried medications? I'm assuming you have but wanted to ask. You must feel very alone at times. I'm glad you posted on DF. Tim
  10. Lost Soul: Severe depression is so very hard. Really. I have trouble regulating my eating sometimes. So, I hear you. Wishing you the best, Tim
  11. manicdepressive: You are very articulate describing what you are experiencing. You are trying some new things. Reason to hope. Keep us posted. Or keep this topic moving along with how you are doing. Wishing you the best Tim
  12. Welcome to DF. Suffering from depression, I do understand the symptoms you are describing. It feels like one is coming apart from the inside out. You are experiencing alot of transitions right now. That can't help but increase your stress. You mention sharing this with a doctor or doctors. Have you ever talked with a doctor about anxiety or depression meds?
  13. Herntreez: You are going through alot. And I'm so sorry you are experiencing soul deep depression. Of course, the tragedy was not, not, not your fault. Awful things happen in this life. They just happen. Please make your own decision, but I'd be hesitant about a neurofeedback approach to depression. I'm not sure that it is evidence based. I'd encourage you to find a licensed therapist and psychiatrist trained in treating depression and post traumatic stress disorder. I wonder if Toronto has a local Canadian Mental Health Association that could assist you in finding the best match of care. Tim
  14. Thanks for the update. I hope today is a better day for you.
  15. Oh, nojoy, I'm so sorry. That is alot of money and no help from insurance. This is on the Genesight website: Insurance can be complicated, and we want you to feel comfortable knowing what you’ll owe. We promise that if your cost could be more than $330, we’ll call you before we process your test.
