so i have found myself boarding the line of depression. I am at the point where I come home angry. I dont enjoy my job anymore. I wish I could find my passion for it again. I am 26 with no degree. I have a husband that i love but i feel as if i am not good enough for him. we dont share common interest. he loves guns, politcal debates, working out, drinking, and he loves to learn new things. he has such a open mind to new things and sometimes, i find it intimidating. he is never shy or afraid to try new things. i wish i could have just a ounce of that. i am not a dull person but im not very exciting either. i fear change. i have a short temper. i doubt myself so much, im afraid of trying new things for fear at failing. i dont like looking, well feeling, stupid infront of other people. i dont think highly of myself. i may seem confident of the oustide, but when i hear a slight comment or something i find negtive about myself, i can feel my soul crack more. i find myself fighting back tears 90% of the day. i feel like i unable talk to my husband. i know he loves me but he lacks emotions to feel or understand something like that. i feel as if he would just kinda giggle at me for trying to explain the way i feel. mind you im not the best with words when it comes to stuff like that. i have always had to hide my depression because no one takes it serious. how do you explain things when you youself cant understand things. when it comes to trying to have converstations with

Hope(less) My eyes thrust open as I reel from the sinister nightmares that plague my sleep. The melange of pills I pocket were prescribed to cause their cessation, but the terrors persist. I was foolish to think that they could ever end.

Depression is a fast growing epidemic in America, claiming the lives of an estimated one in eight people in our country; and several thousand in that number express faith in Jesus Christ (“Depression Statistics”) . But if God loves us, why does he allow us to feel this way? Where do we turn for up-to-date answers about this issue when the Bible was written over 2000 years ago? Believe it or not, the Bible contains some of the most compelling stories of painful and crushing depression, and the plan and purpose God had for those people who felt that way. You won’t find the word “depression” in the Bible, but you will find many biblical characters described as forlorn, downcast, heavy-laden, or brokenhearted. These are characters such as Job,
The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) reported in 2010 that Major Depression was the most common mental disorder in the United States, with the World Health Organization following that it carries the heaviest burden of disability among mental and behavioral disorders. The National Survey on Drug Use and Health noted that 6.7% of the US population (18 and older) had been diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) showing that 18-25 years of age was the most affected at 10.3%. In 2015 the NIMH reported that, 16.1 million adults had at least one major depressive episode yearly, this number representing 6.7% of all US adults. Statistically females were affected greater than males, 8.5% vs 4.7%, and those of mixed races (2 or more) carry a higher burden of disease at 12.2% as opposed to whites at 7.5 %.
Depression is a serious medical condition in which a person feels very sad, hopeless, and unimportant and often is unable to live in a normal way. It brings together a variety of physical and psychological symptoms which together constitute a syndrome. At least 10% of people in the U.S. will experience major depressive disorder at some point in their lives. Twice as many women as men experience major depression and is known as the common cold among psychological disorders. Like the common cold, there are many types of depression.

Depression is quite common nowadays-statistics say that nearly 10% of people in the United States suffer from it each year, and 30% of women are depressed. Many of these people suffer in silence, so to speak, never talking to their doctors about their problem, let alone their friends and family. Some are able to find the courage to talk to their regular doctors, though they may feel awkward and shy discussing the problem. And it does take courage to speak up, trust me-I know because I suffer from this condition and it took me quite awhile to get the nerve to speak to my doctor. But, talking with a regular doctor about depression really may not take care of the problem in the best way. Sure, the doctor will likely write a prescription for you, but with so many depression medications on the market it can be difficult to find the right one for each person-and, chances are your regular doctor probably isn 't familiar with all of the differences in the various depression medications. It generally takes someone who specializes in this type of study to really understand how all of these medicines work. So, what should someone with depression do? It was probably hard enough summoning the strength to go to the doctor in the first place and then here I am telling you that a regular doctor really doesn 't suffice. I suggest that you find a therapist-a counselor, a psychiatrist, or psychologist-basically someone with whom you can make an appointment to just talk. How can you find a
The depression visualisation was produced to show that any individual can get depression and because of this it is ‘normal’ to ‘suffer’ with depression. The example used in the presentation of the visualisation was that someone could lose a family member and that then causes effect on how they perform at their place of work, which could result in them losing their job, which then causes them stress about money problems, which makes their social life diminish. Money problems could also cause a strain on their relationship which could then affect their family life. This gives the individual feelings of loneliness, self hate and maybe suicidal thoughts. This shows that one terrible thing happening to them has caused gloomy feelings in other
The Sequenced Treatment Alternatives to Relieve Depression (STAR*D) was a cooperative study on the treatment of depression. The National Institute of Mental Health funded the study. Its primary goal was on the treatment of depression in patients, when the medication administered to them first did not work. Another major goal of the study was to be more applicable to real clinical situations. For example, the treatments were not blinded to the patient or to the doctor. (Sinyor, 2010) The STAR*D trial used remission to measure the outcome, not reduction of symptoms. They did this because patients who have a complete remission of symptoms are far less susceptible to relapse compared to patients with only a reduction of symptoms.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a coming-of-age epistolary novel written by American novelist Stephen Chbosky set in the suburbs of Pittsburgh in the 1990's (Wikipedia, 2012). It follows the life of a teenage boy named Charlie.
Have you ever been to therapy/group therapy, know what it’s like to be there and to talk with others about everything going on or with the things you do/have done in your past, or even know anyone who is in it? I have been in group therapy for quite awhile now for a couple of mental illnesses and issues that I have which include severe depression, bipolar, anxiety, panic, anger issues, adhd, self-harm, troubled sleeping and eating, suicidal with a high risk, along with a series of abuse of drugs and alcohol. I am very isolated and most of the time all I do is lay in bed and do literally nothing because I never feel like doing anything. I have been struggling through these things for about 2 and a half years but going to therapy/group therapy and taking some of the prescribed medicine really does help a lot. From going to all the therapy/group therapy along with taking the prescribed medication has helped me quite a bit, I still have a hard time with my depression and a few other things but I am slowly recovering which takes forever but I am so glad that I am because I can 't stand feeling all this and going through all this but once it is over it’ll definitely be worth the time and hard work doing the things I am doing to recover. The therapists I have, Ty and Sheila are very good people, they listen to everyone and will help do everything they can to be there. There will always be some therapists around you so you can talk to them while they will
