I've always had underlying depression issues. Years fine on Prozac. Then year or so ago I aware not sleeping, anxiety, anger, loss interest in everything. MD said Prozac maxed out for me so then effector (hated it almost suicidal!), cymbalta, lexipro, Zoloft and now supposed to start paxil. I can't keep doing this. I've lost my job, my friends can't listen anymore, I cry all the time and hide in bed 18 hours a day. What do I do? This is no way to live.

You have been having depression of a relapsing nature and it seems to be more resistant to medications every next time. You might need a combinations of two or more group of antidepressants along with some augmenting agents too. Consult a psychiatrist personally, along with a family member or close friend. Do not stay alone. Always be with a friend or family member all the time. Ask for help and tell some one if you feel like having death wishes. If medicines are taking longer time to show effects and you continue to have deliberate self harm thoughts you may get admitted under a psychiatrist and start modified ects too. However that remains only one among all options. You have recovered from depression in past and you will surely improve this time too, sooner or later. Keep the faith. Take care.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, I highly appreciate your concern for your friend. From what you have mentioned, it seems that your friend is suffering from depression. Since she is also talking about dying, its warranted that she should be started on treated without any further delay. Treatment with medications and counseling will help her feel better. You should ask her to seek a psychiatric consulation. Hoping that she recovers soon. Best wishes.

Your level of self-confidence can show in many ways: your behavior, your body language, how you speak, what you say, and so on. Look at the following comparisons of common confident behavior with behavior associated with low self-confidence. Which thoughts or actions do you recognize in yourself and people around you? So here are our three steps to self-confidence, for which we’ll use the metaphor of a journey: preparing for your journey; setting out; and accelerating towards success. Step 1: Preparing for Your Journey The first step involves getting yourself ready for your journey to self-confidence. You need to take stock of where you are, think about where you want to go, get yourself in the right mindset for your journey, and commit yourself to starting it and staying with it. In preparing for your journey, do these five things: Look at What You've Already Achieved Think about your life so far, and list the ten best things you've achieved in an "Achievement Log. Perhaps you came top in an important test or exam, played a key role in an important team, produced the best sales figures in a period, did something that made a key difference in someone else’s life, or delivered a project that meant a lot for your business. Put these into a smartly formatted document, which you can look at often. And then spend a few minutes each week enjoying the success you’ve already had! Think About Your Strengths Next, use a technique like SWOT Analysis Add to My Personal Learning Plan to take a look at who and where you are. Looking at your Achievement Log, and reflecting on your recent life, think about what your friends would consider to be your strengths and weaknesses. From these, think about the opportunities and threats you face. Make sure that you enjoy a few minutes reflecting on your strengths! Think About What's Important to You, and Where you Want to Go Next, think about the things that are really important to you, and what you want to achieve with your life. Setting and achieving goals is a key part of this, and real confidence comes from this. Goal setting is the process you use to set yourself targets, and measure your successful hitting of those targets. See our article on goal setting Add to My Personal Learning Plan to find out how to use this important technique, or use our Life Plan Workbook to think through your own goals in detail (see the "Tip" below). Inform your goal setting with your SWOT Analysis. Set goals that exploit your strengths, minimize your weaknesses, realize your opportunities, and control the threats you face. And having set the major goals in your life, identify the first step in each. Make sure it’s a very small step, perhaps taking no more than an hour to complete! Start Managing Your Mind At this stage, you need to start managing your mind. Learn to pick up and defeat the negative self-talk which can destroy your confidence. See our article on rational positive thinking Add to My Personal Learning Plan to find out how to do this. Further useful reading includes our article on imagery Add to My Personal Learning Plan – this teaches you how to use and create strong mental images of what you'll feel and experience as you achieve your major goals – there’s something about doing this that makes even major goals seem achievable! And Then Commit Yourself to Success! The final part of preparing for the journey is to make a clear and unequivocal promise to yourself that you are absolutely committed to your journey, and that you will do all in your power to achieve it. If as you’re doing it, you find doubts starting to surface, write them down and challenge them calmly and rationally. If they dissolve under scrutiny, that’s great. However if they are based on genuine risks, make sure you set additional goals to manage these appropriately. For help with evaluating and managing the risks you face, read our Risk Analysis and Management Add to My Personal Learning Plan article. Either way, make that promise!

Hi I have already been here for my health issues and I received very helpful suggestions. Last time I discussed about my depression and anxiety attack issue and most of the experts advised me to do meditation but I found that when I meditate it didn't help me out in this. In mid of this period I was recovering from this but few days back I start feeling low and exhausted and defeated again. Even this time I feel like something is pinning in my heart is it can be due to tension. Please help me in this what can I do. Thanks in advance.

Hi lybrate-user. Neurotic spectrum disorders can present with a variety of symptoms. Some of which have been listed in various books and diagnostic classifications. However, they do not constitute the exhaustive list and thus anxiety and depression can be of several different forms some of which we may not even know. The art of effective treatment is to have a flexible and customized approach. Unfortunately, people practicing one specific technique/system prefer their own ways. But it may not be as simple as that. Therefore, if you do not find help or inadequate support from one way, we should look for another ways. There are many including pharmacotherapies, psychotherapies, meditation based interventions and so on. What helps in a specific case has to be found out. Please visit a near psychiatrist/clinical psychologist and try to find a more suitable/effective technique for yourself under the expert guidance. All the best.

How to Help Yourself If You Are Depressed

How to Help Yourself If You Are Depressed

remember, positive thinking will replace the negative thinking that is part of the depression and will disappear as your depression responds to treatment. 

let your family and friends help you. 
Depressive disorders make one feel exhausted, worthless, helpless, and hopeless. Such negative thoughts and feelings make some people feel like giving up. It is important to realize that these negative views are part of the depression and typically do not accurately reflect the actual circumstances. Negative thinking fades as treatment begins to take effect. In the meantime:

set realistic goals in light of the depression and assume a reasonable amount of responsibility. 

break large tasks into small ones, set some priorities, and do what you can as you can. 

try to be with other people and to confide in someone; it is usually better than being alone and secretive. 

participate in activities that may make you feel better. 

mild exercise, going to a movie, a ballgame, or participating in religious, social, or other activities may help. 

expect your mood to improve gradually, not immediately. Feeling better takes time. 

it is advisable to postpone important decisions until the depression has lifted. Before deciding to make a significant transition change jobs, get married or divorced discuss it with others who know you well and have a more objective view of your situation. 

people rarely" snap out of" a depression. But they can feel a little better day-by-day. 

remember, positive thinking will replace the negative thinking that is part of the depression and will disappear as your depression responds to treatment. 

let your family and friends help you.

I am suffering from mental depression since 2 months! what should I do to overcome it?

I am suffering from mental depression since 2 months! what should I do to overcome it?
Dear lybrate-user, Depression is a chemical disorder just like many medical illnesses. There are many types of depression. Each one of them need different duration of treatment, some of them life long medication like diabetes or BP. Just because you are fine, you can not stop. Will you stop your diabetes medicine and diet as soon as your blood sugar becomes normal? Like that you should continue the drug as long as the doctors prescribes. May be you need the drug for some more time or you need more dose of the drug, or you need to add another antidepressant or therapy. Why do you want to stop a medicine which benefits you to live a better quality of life? Both depression and anxiety are disorders that need treatment. A psychiatrist will be able to treat them after diagnosing the disorder. Suppose, you have temperature of 102* instead of 98.6*, don't you go to a doctor? Like that if depression and anxiety are much higher than what is normal, you should consult the doctor, psychiatrist. As you know, so many disorders can raise your temperature, like that so many disorders may increase your depression and anxiety. The psychiatrist will find out the cause - it may be a hormonal problem, it may be a neurological problem, it may be a bipolar disorder, or it may be a drug side effect. After diagnosing, the psychiatrist will treat accordingly - both depression & anxiety and underlying cause. Please inform all your other family members and friends about it. Just like talking about fever, let us talk about our feelings also. You need to consult a psychiatrist who will request few blood tests to find out other medical diseases causing depression. If they are NORMAL, she/ he may prescribe you a tablet of antidepressant for few months. The dose will be changed according to your improvement and side effects of the tablets. It might take 3-6 weeks for you to improve and be active and happy. You need to take those tablets for many months. Please note that there are many antidepressants that do NOT increase sleep.

Having disturbing dreams so frequently, that you so vividly remember is suggestive of a disturbed sleep pattern and distorted sleep architecture. This may occur due to various reasons. Also having similar dreams so often suggests an underlying psychological issue which needs attention and management. Consult a psychiatrist for evaluation and management.

How to relax our mind. Tension free stress free, I am a student .but I can't control my anger please help.

How to relax our mind. Tension free stress free, I am a student .but I can't control my anger please help.
Hi Lybrate user, For stress relief you can try all these steps. When it comes to short-term methods, I think the best ones are: Sports - physical exercise raises endorphin levels, which makes us happier. Eating something tasty - raises dopamine levels, which makes us happier. Doing things you love - such as going to the movies or spending time with friends, relaxing. Talking to people - share your concerns and stress with you dearest friends, but make sure they are willing to listen to it. Because we are social animals, communicating to others in difficult times really helps. When it comes to long-term, I would say: Meditation - it has been the biggest game changer for me. Its effects don’t come within a day, but when they do, you will notice how dealing with stress has just become so much easier. You will also have your own quiet place to go to. Understanding and awareness - one of the most effective weapons against stress is awareness. You have to understand that life should not be stressful. Don’t take studies, work or other as the most important things in life. See them for what they are. Don’t forget to stop, analyse your thoughts and understand why you are feeling the way you are. You should do this daily or whenever you feel overwhelmed. When you do come to the conclusion that it is all just a game, stress will lose its grip on you. FOR ANGER YOU CAN TRY ALL THESE STEPS. In the short run, Take a break as soon as you recognize that you're angry. Stop what you're doing, get away from whatever is irritating you, and just take a breather. Breathe deeply, from your diaphragm; breathing from your chest won't relax you. Picture your breath coming up from your "gut. Slowly repeat a calm word or phrase such as "relax, "take it easy. Repeat it to yourself while breathing deeply. Use imagery; visualize a relaxing experience, from either your memory or your imagination. Ask for the support of someone you trust. If you're still upset, sharing your concerns with a close friend or confidant might help. Try to see some humor in what angered you. After you've calmed down and established that you're ready to get over the incident, try to see the lighter side. In the long run, Do some physical exercises. The endorphins from exercise can help you calm down, and moving your body provides a physical outlet for your rage. Cognitive restructuring - Ask yourself honestly if you see everyone and everything as an adversary or an obstacle. Odds are, the world isn't exactly that way - but you think it is. Change the way you think about life. Keep a journal of what upsets you and how you plan to fix it. Lastly, if all else fails, visit a mental health professional. THANK YOU ALL THE BEST.
