Always Wake Up Early 4am

Always Wake Up Early 4am

I have been diagnosed with depression & GAD and had a relasp for 3 months now.. no improvment at all! Waiting for out patient referral.
Generally I can just about cope with it day to day.
Real problems occur when I wake up at 4am and have little sleep, around 4hours.
Its annoying I have really bad cognitive problems then.
Very hard to read, follow plots on tv, follow directions. It's so debilitating.. Does anyone get this?And what are good ways to cope with it?

I Have A Dull Headach, Chest Pain And Feel Really Weak. I Feel Like My Body Is Shutting Down. Is This Part Of Depression?

I Have A Dull Headach, Chest Pain And Feel Really Weak. I Feel Like My Body Is Shutting Down. Is This Part Of Depression?

Have also been having really dark thoughts. There are times during the day when I have to lie down. Instead of things getting better I'm feeling worse. I've been to a psychologist and I have situational depression. I feel trapped & isolated and deeply deeply hurt by some events that happened this year. I've never been like this before. Nothing is helping. I'm starting to give up.

Anyone Having Doctor Problems?

Anyone Having Doctor Problems?

Does anyone else feel like it is a mission and a half to find a good doctor?

Over the past month, I have seen 4 different doctors and they are all contradicting each other and I feel like none of them take me seriously.

My latest one (the "best" one so far) put me on Pristiq for 2 weeks. After 5 days the side effects were so bad I passed out. I called her and talked to her, now she has this bad attitude that I didn't try hard enough.

She also won't give me any help for insomnia, except for… read more

Why Does It Seem

Why Does It Seem

Why does it seem like everyone I know who has depressive disorders almost all was sexually molested and later on in life follows substance abuse? Honestly really? It’s like we’re dealt a bad hand before we are even born.

A MyDepressionTeam Member said:

Same here. You said Good delivered you from your addiction. I believe God or an angel saved my life many times. I woke up when I should never have.
