Beating the Blues: Conquering Situational Depression

Depression can come along at any time and hit you in the gut. Having recently been through a terrible breakup, I have found myself being depressed. I’m not normally a depressed person and don’t have any issues with long term depression, so I decided to try and cheer myself up! Here are a few things I have done to beat my blues. And I still have bad days, of course, but it is getting better. Sometimes I have to make myself do these things, but I am always glad when I do because I always feel better! Get Out! Something

I Survived: How Postpartum Depression Almost Took My Life

The day my daughter was born was the best day of my life. It was also the start to the worst days of my life. The feeling of hate towards myself became to much for me to handle and eventually lead to me attempting suicide by driving my car into a telephone pole. I never imagined that I would become one of those that suffered from postpartum depression. I always imagined that people that have postpartum depression are usually in a bad situation and just can’t cope with life. I guess I always figured that postpartum depression was an excuse

Depression: Less Common in Men or Just Not Diagnosed as Frequently?

If a male friend, co-worker or companion seems frequently irritable, angry and withdrawn it may not be anger that he is displaying.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. While nearly one third of the people who suffer from depression in the United States, the majority of the people who seek help for the condition are women. Men tend

From Depression to Normalcy: There is Hope for Happiness

An Article to Comfort the Desperate and Sad I always had a positive outlook on everything when I was younger. In fact, up until this year, I could still find the good in every negative situation. When I became depressed, though, everything changed dramatically. I cant explain how confused I was. Nothing had happened to make me feel the way I did; it really just came out of nowhere. Being a person who looks to logic for explanation, I was not only depressed and confused, but irritated. I kept thinking, “This is not normal. Humans are not supposed to feel

Depression, Hope and North Richland Hills Hospital

Three weeks ago I voluntarily entered a rehabilitaion center for depression. It wasn’t my first time to see the hospital, three months ago I had entered for the same thing, but due to fresh instability that trip was less than enjoyable. I was resistant to any help and sad, a bad combination. At 2 a.m, with my parents supportively trailing behind, we entered the ER. The sign that read “emergency” iridescently shone in red, and welcomed us through the sliding glass door to the front desk. Upon completion of some brief paperwork, I scowered the lobby for any open seats.

Is Depression Experienced by Women and Men Equally?

Depression is not experienced in the same manner and to the same extent by all age groups and sexes. It is a well known fact that women experience depression more than men. This is true regardless of economic status, racial and ethnic background. There are many factors responsible for this difference in the experience of depression. 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. Research has also shown that the chemical processes of the brain, that control mood and emotions, are directly

Telephone Therapy for Depression and Other Mental Health Disorders

Some people suffering with certain mental disorders, such as agoraphobia, anxiety, body dysmorphic disorder or deep depression, may have difficulty leaving their home. This may be a reason why a person with one or a combination of these disorders are reluctant to go and see a mental health therapist. If you are looking to speak with a therapist, but would like to do it from the comfort of your own home, you might have that option if you can find a therapist who does telephone sessions. You could do an online search for mental health therapists who do telephone counseling.

Just Pick an Emotion Already. Living with Depression, a Success Story

Everybody has a bad day, nothing seems to go right, wanting to lie in bed all day sleeping the rest of your life away. Some are triggered into this feeling when it is raining, others simply wake up on the wrong side of the bed. However, for 9.4 million Americans it is a daily struggle just to get out of bed, accomplishing this minor task for some is a large accomplishment for the day.

Physiological Health Complications Depression is a complex mental health complication that is often treated with medications that control the flow and release of certain hormones and biological chemical.

A combination of genetics, postpartum, and life circumstances thrust my happy and cheerful personality into a spiraling world of chaos.

Sure, I had my day planned down to a T, but hey, nothing wrong with a schedule, right?

There is a Difference, and It’s a Big One I never really thought there was much of a difference between Unipolar depression and Bipolar depression. Of course, Bipolar is different from regular depression in that it is classified by different episodes of either mania or hypomania. I always figured that the depression part of the disorders would be the same, considering it’s depression. So, wouldn’t depression effect people the same, even if it is part of different disorders? Well, apparently not, as I have discovered. There are some big differences in the way a depressed person with Bipolar disorder handles

How to Treat Depression Without Medication

Depression is a very serious condition. It is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. It is not something that will just cure itself. It is not something that will just get better. Depression can come and go. There is no standard amount of time that a person continues to be depressed. It can range anywhere from a few days, to a few months, sometimes even years. When your depression dissipates, there is no warning to when it will come back. Keep close watch over yourself to see the warning signs of your depression worsening. In my own experience

Dysthymia is another term for depression that is long lasting or chronic. This is not the same as major depressive disorder, in that people that have it can still function, but never find any inner peace or happiness. No one really can understand what causes dysthymia for sure. It could sometimes be related to changes that are hard to deal with in life, or other stress factors. Other times it can be from lack of serotonin getting into the brain. Serotonin is a type of neurotransmitter that plays a role in the balances of mental health. People that have dysthymia

You can go through a wide range of emotions in the process of adopting a child, especially an infant — from excitement to frustration to anxiety to elation. While waiting for a child to be legally your own, you tend to build up a fantasy of how you envision your new life with your newly – adopted baby. But when that moment arrives, one usually becomes overwhelmed with the emotional adjustments that need to be made and end up feeling detached from the child rather than feel a sense of closeness.

An In-depth Look at Depression Among the Elderly

Often times, depression is looked over in the elderly as a normal sign of aging. Although depression is an easy disorder to treat if diagnosed, many times it will go unnoticed, therefore undiagnosed. This can partially be attributed to the fact that the elderly population is typically slow to seek out psychiatric evaluations and treatment. The typical view of aging and physical debilitation in our society is depressing, so elderly individuals see depression and a loss of hope as normal during that phase of life. Clinical depression and depressive symptoms are undoubtedly prevalent among nursing home residents. Depression in nursing
