Questioning going back to school

If this is in the wrong forum, let me know. Much like a lot of people, my mental health has taken a hit due to covid as of recent.

Back in 2019 I decided I wanted to get back into healthcare. I was 100% sure that this was what I wanted to do. I completed some classes in person with the remainder of the classes being online (which wasn't due to covid, that's just how ...

Depression and Misanthropy / Well-motivated?

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and I didn't see a Presentation section, so I'll just go ahead with this topic.

The reason I am writing here now is that I am struggling ...

Feeling like I'm doomed to failure?

Hello all, it's exactly as the title says, I feel like I'm doomed to failure. I'm 23 and still not entirely certain what I want to do with my life (I have some ideas I guess but I'm not sure). It feels like no matter what I do I'm destined to become nothing but a burden on my family and society. I have no boyfriend, I've never really been in a relationship. My life is ...

exercise is vague idea

i think it's vague when people say to exercise to help with depression, at least it's vague when the depression is due to the incident.

i'd want the psychologist to address the issue rather than suggest exercise or other stuff.

that's diversion. it's like ur body lacks proteins and ur suggesting carbs to repair the body.

again. it may help when the cause of depression isn't any incident /trauma. but for me (depression after ...

Why am I lamented for being depressed?

Do people not understand that emotional pain can be just as bad as physical pain?

I don't have the proper money needed to get the years worth of specialized therapy to even have a fighting chance and people think that just popping prescribed pills are going to help.

I have terrible reactions to the meds but my moods are stabilized. I feel that it just makes it easier for everyone else.

I've lost 6 friends ...

Going at it alone

Hi guys,

In the past all I've wanted is to not be alone. But now I'm in a great marriage and life is generally good and all I want is to be alone to sit in my depression. I saw someone and starting working on my crap in college. And life just got in the way once I graduated. I think I've always had some form of low grade depression my whole life and I've ...

Making Your Antidepressants Stronger with Thryroid Meds?

Sometimes psychiatrists will prescribe thyroid medications to augment antidepressants in patients who have treatment resistant depression.

I'm wondering if anyone has experience with thyroid meds in treating their depression?

And if so, what symptoms of depression they found it helpful for?

My psychiatrist has prescribed me Cytomel (Liothyronine) to go with my antidepressant in hopes of amping up their effect.

I have to wait before starting due to some weird blood tests that came in, ...

How can I start looking forward to the future?

Recently, I had a bit of an epiphany, I think. When I was a kid, I looked forward to the future. The future seemed bright, and full of possibility. Then one day, I'm not sure when exactly but sometime during adolescence I guess, I stopped looking forward to the future. The future became something unknown and bleak, and I stopped looking forward to it. As a kid, I looked forward to when I would someday ...

I feel guilty about having a mental illness

Does anyone else ever get this way, and if so what do you do to break free of this negative spiral? It's like Depression-ception, heh. :| I have depression and anxiety, and then I get more depressed because I feel guilty about having depression and anxiety. I feel guilty because of the way it affects/has affected my parents and the ones I care about. It's better now ...
