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
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.
Im always in my room because I avoid stepping on her toes, but honestly, I miss being able to sit in the living room with everyone else and… read more
I was able to scoot by for several years dealing with my depression up until 2017 when I was diagnosed with melanoma cancer. After getting through the treatments I felt like my depression went downhill significantly and became very unmanageable, especially after my second melanoma diagnosis end of this last year. I know it sounds silly but I feel like my brain changed in some way after dealing with those… read more
im stuck in the situation where i feel like im not good enough, and that im not really that beautiful. Any helpful tips to try and make myself seem a little better?
Background info: I've been depressed for over 25 years, was married, and had 2kids. I have been alone for over 16 years now, and can't believe that someone would even want to be with me.

I have been on a strict diet for just over a year and have lost 95 lbs. it is low carb, no sugar and low sodium. When I eat the yummy, not so good for me foods, my mood definitely takes a nosedive. I feel tired and moody, cry more often over nothing. I have more “bad” days.
Has anyone else noticed this?
Hey, do you ever feel that way?
I feel really heavy often and I lack the energy to even converse with people.
When I play sports I run out of breath very quickly and I used to be a competitive athlete with amazing cardio.
I've done all the tests out there and keep going back to my GP and my doc what else can we test and do about it.
Of course all th tests came back negative. It's… read more
