New Here

Hello, I have never posted on here before, just thought that I would. I am a 31 year old female that has been diagnoised with depression for 9 years. Been in and out of the hospital to many times to count; so I don't try. Attempted suicide too many times to count so again I don't try. Nor do I attempt anymore. I lost my job nine years ago and was forced, to a point, in going on disabillity. Had a good job too but that was nine years ago. Been trying to work for those past nine years yet seem to not be able to keep s job due mostly to hospitalizations. About three years ago I started having different physical symptoms, would go to the docs. for a while then they would go away so I would stop going. Half because I got tired of the its the depression or side effects from the meds. And half because I had no symptoms. Now for the past 6-7 months have had these same symptoms with new ones arising every day. Although I do here the depression gabble from doctors. that don't really even know what depression is I have gotten some to listen. I think sometimes why some of the others want to blame my depression is because they can't figure it out. Alot of my test result say that something is wrong just apperently do not add together.  Anyway I am going to a specialist on Thursday. Hope to find some answers.

Today yes I am a little down but I know that it is because all of these other symptoms. I have not been able to go out of the hose for a week now because I have bronchitis. And in dealing with depression isolation is a no no but in my case i have no option. I know it has just been a week but it really does get old and all I have to do is think. Thats always a bad thing for me to do; when i have nothing to think about.

I did recently get a flute and piccillo off of ebay hoping to have something to do since my doctors told me to stop school for a semester. I think that s really whats depressing for me, everytime I try something it seems like there is something put in the way from me doing it at all. Ok well I'll shut up know, I know it s just a blog or supposed to be. Just got to get it out or will keep thinking.

Hi I'm SEA and a fellow member like yourself. You can click CONTACT DR. PHIL to CONTACT DR. PHIL. Finding what works is like looking for a pair of shoes. Sometimes we have to shop around for the perfect fit. Sometimes anti-depressants can exacerbate depression in some. Have you discussed that with doctor. You can google and take a print out to substantiate a medical fact.

Basically, healthy habits/lifestyle inside (thoughts) and out equal feeling healthy. Was there a trigger event that occurred before your depression or any changes in your life?

Keep looking for your *smile* as I have confidence in you that if you are proactive YOU WILL find your *smile*. For some walking every day naturally elevates mood by raising endorphin level and oxygenating brain... even to corner and back to begin with.

Shallow breathing has been linked to anxiety, depression and panic and doctor approved exercise oxygenates the brain and raises endorphin level naturally elevating mood. Never stop medication or experiment with dosage w/o doctor supervision though.

And yes I have discussed everythinkg with doctors. My problems know are not the depression as much as it is feeling dizzy, migrane, nausus, pain, and so on. I cant stay up some times for more than two hours but a lot of time I force myself to if I can. And yes I do know all about side affects yet these symptoms remained when off the medication for months. So I know it has nothing to do with the depression. I was depressed last night because I am tired of being sick and every day it seems to get worse. People who are sick with diseases and things do get depressed, its not always clinical.

 

Walking would be an option yet can't walk a half a block without having to sit down, to tired to dizzy and I have been haveing frequent falls lately. When I have the energy and stability I ride my exercise bike; its in the basement.

 

Love your poem and thanks for commenting, its good to have someone that understands things.

 

Most of the time I am in a fine mood just occasionally all the stress on my body and my brain get to me

You are absolutely right... I was wondering... I have menieres from an allergic reaction to ototoxic aspirin. I'd begun taking a baby aspiring a day as a New Years Resolution to healthier lifestyle since touted to ward off stroke, heart disease and stroke. Maybe so if you aren't allergic. Had vertigo that sounds much like you describe.

The silver lining to it is crying or grieving too much over losing my house or lost loved one precipitates if I cry so I don't entertain those thoughts. And anyone who has had vertigo knows so horrible YOU WILL suck it up knowing waterworks crying can precipitate a vertigo attack.

Think about it... as seems so obvious now to me. Balance in ears and when you cry it has to do with eyes and sinuses etc. OMG(osh) if something gets me down and I feel like crying suddenly I think... no way because could have a vertigo attack. So, in an odd sort of way though horrible to have ever had vertigo and no fun to have menieres if in fact I do as a doctor said. Well, helps me to not grieve too much because makes me cry and crying causes vertigo.

Long story short... if you were as dizzy as I was walking was not an option... Well, now, I have to use exercise bike because doctor said walking not good since tearing meniscus in each knee slipping on hay and tripping over pumpkins last fall.

Something else, too, that can cause dizziness is dehydration. I set out three bottles of water each day to be sure I drink at least that plus other things I drink during the day.

A lot of doctors "practicing medicine" go through process of elimination to discern what is is what. It behooves each of us and you are wise to do as you are doing being an active participant and so proactive in your health.

For instance, if you drink enough water dizziness might not be dehydration related. If you don't cry much nor grieve or lament your losses or have any allergies to ototoxic medications like aspirin then menieres might not be your problem.

Yes, though, having dizziness or vertigo like I had IS depressing and if I get too sad about anything and cry can precipitate vertigo so just simply don't even if I have ever reason to. I may mention and wish things were better yet I don't go with despair that leads to crying and vertigo simply because the vertigo is so awful if I do.

Anyway, dizziness can be caused by lots of things from medications since some are ototoxic and balance in ears. Too, from an ear problem, high blood pressure and via the process of elimination of what it isn't hopefully you'll find what's causing and be able to remedy. Have you ever looked up menieres? Do you otherwise have a healthy diet (food, fluids, thought diet)? Consistent sleep schedule. Often if we don't have a schedule pretty soon our body has no idea what we're doing and we have no idea either.

Yes, though, you are right that depression have many root causes from environment to things in environment to physiological to not physiological to being depressed due to not feeling well. Oh, and black mold, carbon monoxide poisoning etc. etc. etc. Pen to pad to happy from sad... Hope you keep sharing.

Thanks for reply and LOVE the personalized acrostic!!! Off to Google menieres

http://www.nlm.nih.gov/MEDLINEPLUS/ency/article/000702.htm

since I haven't read symptoms in awhile. Just almost worked myself into an attack with an enormous surge of grief missing parents and grandmother and my home in my home town. Saturday, someone took upon self to insult me and I felt overwhelmed missing my dearly departed cheering section. Anyway, like depression many things can cause menieres like ototoxic aspirin allergic reaction then, too, grief and crying can precipitate as well etc.

Hugging prayers,
SEA
