I was placed on Nuzak (20mg) about a month ago and I am currently on my period (Day 5). My usual period cycle is 28 days with an average period length of 5 days which means I'm supposed to be finishing soon, however, I've noticed that my period pain has increased and so has my flow. Could this be because of the antidepressant or am I just having a bad month? I would like to know from my fellow female… read more
I find myself biting or picking my skin a lot. I used to bite my nails and when I got an infection (nothing too serious) I stopped by just picking the skin around it and I find myself biting my skin of my fingers or rubbing my teeth over my nails. Now it seems that I'm doing it without really noticing.
Many years ago I was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder. A couple years ago, due to symptoms I described to my doctor, he added a diagnosis of Bipolar II (hypomania, which is characterized by fluctuations from depression to "just above" normal - not manic episodes as in Bipolar I). My particular type of Bipolar II is called ultra rapid cycling (ultradian), which means there can be several significant mood swings in a single day. Here's a typical day: I wake up feeling… read more
Thanks for taking the time to read my message, I am at a point of being desperate and don’t know what the solution is.
I have suffered with depression all my adult life (I am 31) and have had periods where I have been perfectly in control with medication.
However when I am not in control my sex drive is dangerously high. I have been in a (generally) happy relationship for 13 years but in the past 18 months since turning 30 I have been uncontrollable. I still love my boyfriend very much… read more
My mother emotionally abuses me. Im scared that her anger is aggrevated everyday and that she'll end up physically hurting me.
Last time she nearly punched me in the face because I said she is a little aggressive. Ironic, right.
I tread carefully around her, I say about a maximum of 10 words to her a day because Im always anxious of her reactions.

So today i woke up feeling ok a little on the tired side but ok, then a few hours later im in a mess for bo reason, crying, frecking out, and in a right mess.
Is it possiable to have depression attacks that only last a day as this isnt the first time with has happened to me?
I don't think I hate my family I really really dislike their company. I'm so different from them, I feel relieved when I don't have to. I get very bad anxiety if I have to. Anyone else deal with this?
How do you go on when your therapist tells you that they can no longer see you that you need to find someone else. This happened a week ago & I'm still having a really hard time with it. Then she tells you to find one & of all of the therapists around are not in your network.
I'm not dependable, I rarely answer my phone ( I never answer). My oldest friend, we met 42 years ago, is getting married in May. My social anxiety won't let me go. I feel guilty. What do I tell her?
