Many Years: The Story of Depression

For many, many years I suffered with depression. It is like a vicious cycle, that’s really hard to break out of. It can leave you feeling drained, unloved – even when you have many people who love you around. I always felt like no one in the world understood. I was lucky enough that I have been blessed with an amazing family who not only put up with me when I was scattered and lost, treating people badly, but continue to love me with the same strength they always have. Just recently, I suddenly realised that I was happy. When

Coping with Post-Natal Depression

Many people would believe that women who are pregnant are protected from depression. However, contrary to the common believe that pregnant are not prone from depression, pregnant women are just as susceptible to depression that those women who are not pregnant. In fact, the risk of depression becomes even higher right after a woman gives birth. According to experts, the postpartum stage has the potential of bringing about that “sadness and madness” state. Women who have history of depression are more prone to post-natal depression. The hormonal change, the stress of childbirth, sleep disturbances and the stress of caring for

Depression and Your Child-What You Need to Know

Depression is a disorder that affects millions of people each year. While it is usually diagnosed in mid to late adolescence and early adulthood, research is being done to find indicators of depression earlier on.   Sleep patterns are a great indicator of whether your child may develop depression, according to researchers at UT Southwestern. If your teen tends to enter rapid-eye-movement (REM) early in the sleep cycle, it could mean they are at greater risk to be diagnosed with depression. While this link has been a known fact in adults, until this 5-year study, it was unclear if the

SAD: Is Your Depression Just the Season?

Changing Seasons, Changing Moods? For some people, the changing of the seasons means the changing of moods, with depression settling in on them around the beginning of winter. This can be a major trauma for those already suffering from depression, and for those who are normally not effected by depression, the change in season can bring sadness and loss of energy.   Ten to twenty percent of adult Americans suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians. The malady features not only depression but low energy, overeating, weight loss or gain, sleepiness, insomnia

The Many Forms of Depression

There are different forms of depression. There is situational depression, which is normal for anyone, and then there is clinical depression which is severe and can basically run your life. Even if you think you may be going through situational depression you should still talk to someone about it just to be safe. Depression can be serious, and can lead to suicide. It is not something to be taken lightly. A lot of people think that being depressed means that you are showing signs of weakness, or that you are just over emotional. Men especially feel that this is true.

Signs of Economic Depression, How to Start Preparing

There are many parallels between the Great Depression of the 1940’s and the economic depression that America is facing today. When I use America’s Great Depression as a reference point, I don’t mean that individuals in other countries cannot use this information too. To be sure, the government has a way of sugar coating the real state of the economy and in larger numbers people are starting to feel more scared about the reality of the situation. Survival instinct can be used by all people everywhere, and the lack of it will be the downfall of many families that refused

Profit from the Coming Depression

In an Environment of Extreme Stocks Volatility and Banks Disappearing Overnight, Where Can Investors Profit? When one hears the word “depression,” thought of the pain of loss and images of the “Grapes of Wrath” cascade across one’s mind. And, yes there are severe pangs that often occur in a free-market society when the upheavals of the financial markets descend to the bourgeois and lower income classes. However, the same market that is causing the pain also has an incredible opportunity. As Neapolitan Hill once said, “Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or

Dealing with Depression and Anxiety

It is alarming to think of the sheer numbers of people complaining of depression and anxiety in the 21st Century. Of course, it is prudent to treat the interpretation of all data and statistics with healthy skepticism. Perhaps there is more data on depressed people these days because people just accepted their unhappiness in the past. Perhaps it is less of a stigma these days. Perhaps people simply have higher expectations of personal happiness or the data-gathering methods used today are simply better.   However, whatever the case, you probably know if you want to be happier. If you suffer

Change Can Lead to Depression in Your Pet

Well, the kids are finishing up the school year once again. And those of us with children heading off to college know the bittersweet feeling of pride in our child’s accomplishments, thrill that we are actually going to have less work cleaning up after them when they finally pack up and head out to the dorms, and that awfully sunken feeling in the pit of our guts telling us that we are losing our best friend. And, realize it or not, your pets are feeling the same way about the changes they sense are in the air.   Whenever there

How to Fight Depression and Find the Strength to Continue Living

Depression Versus Sadness

What Really is Depression, and What Are the Symptoms Depression is not sadness. I think I must establish the difference between Depression and Sadness, because at least once a week, a new patient walks into to my office and tell me with the utmost conviction that he or she is suffering from Depression. Usually, I can tell if a patient suffers from Depression in the moment he walks through the door, and I must say that they are frequently wrong.   When a person loses the job, a parent or a great love, it’s normal to get sad, not Depressed.

Gloomy Weather = Depression

Gloomy weather can be one of the main reasons that someone might put off exercising. It is also known that gloomy weather leads to depression.   It is great walking into the gym in the middle of winter and seeing people exercising on a regular basis, and having that exercise have a really positive effect on their depression or anxiety.   The Science Behind It I did some research, and while there is no super-set-in-stone link between alleviating depression and exercise, there are a bunch of factors that point to reasons why exercise might help.   Endorphins – the chemicals

Postpartum Depression: It is Real?

In the late months of my pregnancy I would think about how long we tried for our unborn son and how happy we were. There was no way that I could get postpartum depression (PPD), I thought. I was wrong. PPD can affect any new mother. PPD is real, but it is treatable and things do get better.   After my son was born I had the normal baby blues. I cried for no reason or any reason at all. I would spend hours gazing lovingly at my newborn son. I didn’t want to take my eyes off him. At

Teen Depression: How to Forgive Your Parents

When you are a child your parents are your idols, but when you become a teen you start noticing their mistakes and entering into conflict with them, because you have your own opinion about everything and you simply cannot agree with their conclusions.   For them it would be wonderful if they could control you completely, as they used to do when you were a child. For you it would be wonderful if you were free and you didn’t have to bear their restrictions…   The conflict between generations is an old problem, still unsolved in our time. On the

Depression and Our Husbands

Have you ever sat in front of a window just staring outside, not really seeing anything? Feeling so heavy that you can’t move? When every one of your body parts ache because the weight of your emotions has just become so heavy that you can’t motivate your body to function?   Many thoughts and theories surround the causes of depression.
