What Tricks/ Rules/ Requirements Have You Put In Place To Limit Your Depression/ Suicidal Capacity?

What Tricks/ Rules/ Requirements Have You Put In Place To Limit Your Depression/ Suicidal Capacity?

I'm not asking about regular things such as exercise or healthy habits etc, I mean the general more administrative than healthy things, so for example, I won't live higher than the 4th floor because the temptation to jump would be too high beyond that. I also drive routes that have lower bridges. I keep all my dissecting tools and kit in my car or at work rather than accessible in the house. These… read more

How Do I Get Back To Me?

How Do I Get Back To Me?

Hello,

I’ve dealt with depression since I was 14 years old. I’m now 38 years old and I’m dealing with the worst depression symptoms I’ve ever experienced. I never been this depressed before or suicidal, but I’ve been suicidal multiple times this year. I just got divorced 12/18/20 from my husband of 13 years who I’d been with for 15 years. That’s what’s lead to the severity of my depression. I didn’t want the divorce and it was quite ugly. I’m now living alone and I hate it. I lost my job… read more

Nightmares On Sertraline?

Nightmares On Sertraline?

Since being on Sertraline I've had such horrific and realistic nightmares. The GP says it's normal but they never stop. I wake three times a night. Any ways to combat them ? Thanks

A MyDepressionTeam Member said:

Thank you, I hate having them. Put up with them so far because everyone says it's normal, but I'm losing lots of sleep over them now.

How Do You Deal With Someone Who Wants You Depressed?

How Do You Deal With Someone Who Wants You Depressed?

My dad isn't as bad as he used to be, but sometimes I can be in a good mood and he'll fuss at me until I'm not. I live with my parents so I can't avoid him. Before I was diagnosed with high functioning autism he wouldn't stop until I cried. My uncle, who I thankfully don't have to deal with anymore, did the same thing.

Finding A Therapist

Finding A Therapist

I'm looking into maybe going and seeing a therapist again. I am seeking general recommendations for how to find the right fit.

I don't really want to label therapists as "good" or "bad". You might have been to a therapist that you though was "bad". In my view, most people can benefit from going to therapy. Though, I've probably seen a dozen therapists during my life time. Generally, we end up hashing over the same things. In my experience, instead of good versus bad, it is more… read more
