Dealing with Depression

Having coped with depression on multiple occasions throughout my life I have learned a great deal about the condition so many Americans face today. Through trial and error and over the course of many years, I have come to realize what works and what doesn’t. So, I’d like to share the steps that ultimately helped me work through my depression and hopefully reach others who may be battling the same thing. The Diagnosis Half the battle of dealing with whatever ails you is knowing exactly what ails you in the first place. If you think you may be depressed, take

Depression and What You Think

Negative Thoughts May Be Killing You! Did you know that the saying, “You are what you think” is closer to the truth than many people might care to believe? Depression has a lot to do with what you think, that is, what you tell yourself about yourself and about life’s incidents, problems, and even life’s bonuses. What you tell yourself impacts your feelings, your mood, your behavior and sometimes even your health. “But,” you say, “sometimes life really does stink.” Yes, but the reality is, how you interpret those “rotten” things in life is what determines your mood, emotions and

Control Your Anxiety & Panic

You know the feeling. You’re a perfectly reasonable human being and you’re having a reasonably good day. Then suddenly and for apparently unknown reasons, your brain sends one of those pesky fight or flight signals that leaves you consumed with anxiety and fear. For most of us the situation is manageable and those intensely uncomfortable feelings only last a few seconds. We tell ourselves that we’re fine and that there’s no reason to be anxious. We take a few deep breaths and carry on with our day. But what if that doesn’t work? What if those feelings of emotional turmoil

Anxiety and Me – the Cure?

Back in the 1900’s when somebody had a mental disorder the solution was a lobotomy. Thankfully, we have become more humane since then. We live in a world that has a lot more stress than previous generations. For one we have more people. It’s getting harder to breath the same oxygen. So it should be no surprise to learn than anxiety is a lot more commonplace than it use to be. Either that or people are getting to be more comfortable talking about it. The reason I chose to wrote these articles about anxiety is that there is still a

How to Reduce Anxiety Before Your First Driving Test

Driving can be very stressful, but it can be even more stressful when you have an instructor sitting next to you making sure you are really ready to have a license so you can drive on your own.

Understanding that Anxiety Can Be the Cause of Many Behavior Problems One day my daughter was late for school, she was six years old and very embarrassed. I told her that all she needed to do was walk quietly into the classroom, apologize to the teacher and find her seat.

Depression in the Workplace: What Can a Manager Do?

Managers with experience know that their job is really two-fold; one has to be a manager of a business and a manager of people at the same time. This can prove to be tricky as sometimes these two roles can collide. Employees with emotional or personal problems can and do effect productivity in a business, so management must find a balance between helping that employee reach their potential and maintaining the needs of the business.

Advice from a Anxiety Sufferer Seven years ago I was diagnosed with G.A.D (general anxiety disorder), when one day I was getting ready for school and had my very first panic attack.

Ecotherapy: A New Way to Combat Depression

Mother Nature Knows Best In a day when pharmaceutical companies control the drugs we take more so than our own doctors, it is no wonder that people are looking for alternatives, especially considering both the side effects and the prices that we suffer. A new movement in England may change all that, however, especially for the one in four people who battle mental health problems at one point or another in their lives. Originally called ecopsychology, although more commonly referred to as ecotherapy, the movement mixes psychology with ecology, suggesting that our greatest (and cheapest) asset to improving mental health

Depression – Ranked Third in Survey of Disruptive Conditions

Disruptive Conditions Mental Healthcare Three out of four daults say that depression is a very disruptive illness. Depression is ranked third most disruptive illness after Alzheimer’s disease and Schizophrenia. Cancer and Parkinson’s disease were ranked fourth and fifth in the survey. People need to be more open and admit that depression is disruptive to their daily lives, they are then more likely to acknowledge it as a very serious problem that requires treatment rather than something that will go away by itself. People’s reluctance to discuss mental health problems is still linked to the fact that they may be ridiculed

The Connection Between Childhood Abuse and Adult Depression

How Childhood Abuse Can Affect the Brain as a Adult A child that has been abused is far more likely to suffer from depression as one that did not. This may sound like just common sense. There is research to show chemical and physical changes in the brain as a result. Due to research, mental health professionals are recommending testing and treatment of abused children early as possible. In almost every case of severe adult depression either physical, sexual, emotional abuse or a combination of any and all were experienced as a child.

Dealing With My Depression Without Taking Anti-Depressants

I was 15 when I started seeing a counselor. My grandma had just died and my parents thought I was having a hard time dealing with it. I was. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and saw my therapist until I was about 17. At that point my therapist discharged me, telling us that I was “mentally stable.” I never thought I was actually unstable; never suicidal, homicidal or violent. Just depressed. When I turned 18, I was diagnosed with cancer. About the time we shaved my head I realized that I was depressed again. I talked to my regular

As someone who has fought major depression for five years, I have experienced the side effects of several antidepressant drugs. Lexapro was about the third antidepressant I was prescribed over the course of my treatment. According to my doctor, Lexapro works also to decrease patient’s anxiety levels. From my personal experience, the drug did not ease my depression enough for it to be worth living with the debilitating side effects. Lexapro is in the class of SSRI’s, (Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors), and thus affects the brain’s serotonin levels in order to elevate mood and also to ease anxiety. I was

If a male friend, co-worker or companion seems frequently irritable, angry and withdrawn it may not be anger that he is displaying. Since cultural conditioning makes it unacceptable for men to show various forms of sadness, especially crying, many men retreat to the only option typically available to them. Anger quite often is the typical male emotion and one boys are taught from a young age that they may freely display.

Research has shown that hormonal, biological, life cycle and psychological factors are mainly responsible for the higher rate of depression in women as compared to men.
