Guide to Depression Support Groups in Los Angeles

Depression has been a part of my life for almost ten years. It has impacted my life, my family and my friends. It is very difficult to control my mood swings since I am bipolar, but having an outlet helps me deal with it. I attend a support group at least once a week and I also call up other members in my group when I am feeling down. One day I decided that living with depression was not living at all and decided to do something about it. I went to psychologists, but I felt disconnected while there. I

Understanding Anxiety and Depression

There are times when people get moody, sad, and miserable, and withdraw from any social activities they might take part it. These are often the results of depression, which can be very random and pass quickly in some people, while others suffer from these symptoms on a daily basis, and their function in daily life is greatly affected. When a person is suffering from intense sadness or despair, and symptoms are prolonged, they may also suffer from other unknown mental illnesses, such as bipolar disorder, dementia, or delirium. These mental illnesses are often confused with one each one as the

Great Depression in a Constitutional Context

It seems like, with time, events and conditions that led to the Great Depression have been reduced in the minds of many to the stock market crash in 1929. This is a very simplified and ultimately incorrect view on the situation since at the time of the crash, before mutual funds were invented, even fewer people owned stock than do nowadays (Henretta, Brody, & Dumenil, 2006). Of much more importance was overproduction in virtually every industry and in agriculture, poor management of the nation’s thousands of banks, and the money panic that followed immediately after the stock market crashed.

How to Cure Depression Using The Secret

In December 2004, I was diagnosed with depression. I took Wellbutrin for about a year, went off of it for awhile and then took it again for another few months. Then last summer it hit again. In July 2006, I was diagnosed with chronic recurring depression and my doctor prescribed Prozac. Both times I also entered counseling. Anyone who has ever suffered from depression understands the ups and downs of the disease. Bursting into tears one moment, laughing hysterically the next, fatigue, lack of energy, and a lack of desire to enjoy activities you used to enjoy are all part

How to Deal with Depression from Infertility

This is the most frustrating, heartbreaking condition a woman can ever endure. It causes all sorts of stress, sadness and withdrawal to many. It’s worse if you have painful menstruation (Dysmenorrheal) every month; you keep on asking yourself why I have to go through this pain if I’m not going to have a baby to show for it. And you wait every month to see changes but the same pain comes. As a woman you are expected to have babies by your friends, family, your in-laws and your husband.

There are those who might wonder why I titled this article “surviving” depression. Of course, they would be the folks who either have never suffered from depression for lingering lengths of time or those who claim to have never experienced depression at all. Those of us who have endured months and years in emotional solitude and darkness know that surviving is nothing less than a miracle. The human condition, while it nurtures depression, does not make life easy, or at times, worth living. Suicidal thoughts eventually follow the many choruses of “why am I here?” There are those who will

Depression: is Society Taking the Wrong Approach?

What is the Public Health And/or Community Role in Assisting Those Who “Suffer in Silence”? Is society taking the wrong approach regarding depression? That is an ambiguous and confusing question and needs some clarification. Is the question implying that society has a dismissive and/or impatient stance toward depression and issues surrounding mental health in general? Is it a “non-question” question – by which I mean more is stated than asked in the question – and I might allege that the question is baiting a diatribe against the use of medication.

Serotonin and Depression: the Connection

Serotonin and depression have been linked for decades, but researchers agree that there might be more to the mechanism of the disease. The serotonin link to depression is implicated in the prescription of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). SSRIs work for some patients, but other patients do not receive relief from depression and related disorders with their use. Some researchers purport that the serotonin hypothesis might be overblown, and that depression may be caused by a myriad of chemical imbalances that are not well understood. Furthermore, pharmaceutical companies may rely on the serotonin and depression link to sell medication, like

Many experts will agree that the key to overcoming anxiety is acceptance. Understanding what is happening when you experience an anxiety attack is helpful in developing acceptance. Once you realize that now matter how scary anxiety is, it can not hurt you. No one has ever died directly from an anxiety attack. You may feel that you are dying or are afraid that you will die, but this is not logical. You must understand that anxiety is self perpetuated. Thus, if you create your own anxiety, you have the power to eliminate it. With practice and acceptance, you can dramatically

For a person with social anxiety disorder, the negative effects brought on by constant academic pressures can appear insurmountable. One problem that a person with social anxiety disorder may encounter is lack of understanding.

Battling the Unknown: Postpartum Anxiety Disorder

Most new moms are made to believe that feeling stress and anxiety over the care of a newborn baby, as well as the personal and family adjustment that comes with welcoming a new life into the family, is completely normal. To a degree, that is correct. After all, there are positive and natural effects of anxiety, such as making a new mom more alert and protective of her newborn. Yet a constantly heightened state of anxiety can also lead to the mom becoming overly tense and agitated, causing sleep to become less restful and the mom to be moody and

Helping Children with Separation Anxiety

Separation anxiety is something that experienced by most children as they are growing. It is common for babies who are around seven months old to become distressed when they are away from their parents or parent. This happens because children become afraid that when the person that cares for them leaves, they will not come back. Children often cry, shyness, stop speaking, try to hang on to their parent or become shy.

A Simple Solution for Separation Anxiety

My grandson is the light of my life, but when I was required to play mommy for a while, I often found myself out maneuvered by a two year old. One of the constant battles was his dislike of saying goodbye to those who were leaving the house, whether it happened to be his father, his grandfather, his great-grandparents, or a randomly selected new friend who had come by for a visit. Psychologists call this clinging behavior “separation anxiety,” and it can hit at almost any age from one to four years. My first experiences with separation anxiety came from

My Journey Through Severe Anxiety

A Reflection on the Lessons, Value and Finally the Way Out of Anxiety It is difficult to explain anxiety to one who has never experienced severe unrelenting anxiety. This is not nervousness, the kind we may experience before an interview, it is not fear in the traditional sense, where the sun sets and you need to make your way back to camp in the dark. It is a very unique terror. It is the war within, the battle against ones own thoughts. This battle is dark and deep and terrible at times. Yet, more of that later, first let me

Fear, Worry and Anxiety; Are They Affecting Your Life?

I read an interesting article discussing the difference between worry and fear. It presents the information from the standpoint of how we may have acted historically or prehistorically compared to today. I find that information fascinating because I know that we do tend to adapt to our environment. I also know there are elements in our environment we do not adapt to we simply fear them. Worry can occur as a result of something you lack all of the facts for. You know some of the information and what you know bothers you and it plays on your mind. It

Proven Methods for Overcoming Anxiety

There are two schools of thought when it comes to dealing with anxiety. Some sufferers see nothing wrong with taking prescribed drugs. The trouble with this approach is that it doesn’t deal with the root causes of the anxiety disorder. It simply masks the symptoms. Often anxiety disorders develop because the victim holds unhealthy outlooks toward life in general. They take a negative approach to things. They believe the worst is about to happen to them. These beliefs can often be traced back to some traumatic event earlier in life. One of the proven methods for overcoming anxiety is counseling.

Understanding and Conquering Anxiety Attacks

All of us have scared, worried and anxious thoughts. These are normal and usually pass fairly quickly. We learn how to confront these things and then move on. However, there are some people who are unable to do this and thus suffer from an extreme reaction to what is otherwise an everyday occurrence.
