How many of you out there are on some sort of depression medication and what kind? And why do you think you are depressed in the first place?

Wait a minute. Who told you that you were born with depression? See this is the problem that pisses me off about doctors and psychiatrists. Before I say more. I appreciate your honesty and would like to know a little more about your condition if you don't mind.

Typically, people with depression find it hard to go about their daly activities, and may feel that life is not worth living. People with depression have tendencies to yern for pity parties. Their normal functioning is undermined to a point that both they and their friends are affected by it...Five years ago I had lost from 152 lbs to 97 lbs, Dr's could not diagnose my problem, to make a long story short, I was diagnosed with amyloidosis, which is a sorta rare diease. It was then that they discovered I had Multimylomia, by then i was in stage 4, was in critical condition, but with the proper Chemo and many days in the Hosp and many nights of being sick with my Husband and three daughters and my friends around me, I made up my mind to fight this thing to the end. Was getting better and was in remission after three years, but had to stay on medications and rutine visits to my oncologist. I refused to give up. There is no cure for this, just a control. But, two months back It struck me like a train and now I'm back at it again.... You all wonder why I act so crazy on topix, it has nothing to do with "YOU" it keeps me sane. I just refuse to be depressed, so when the LORD comes knocking I will have my bags packed... So to all of you who may be depressed, you don't have to be! I'm not, and I refussed to go down that road. So all you little turds that don't like Nancy, Nancy loves all of you, you keep me laughing my butt off, Nancy.

Funny thing is my dad was a dr (he passed) but he didn't want to believe I had a problem and feared I would have a psych record. I went formally untreated until a suicide attempt when I was 19. I say i was born with it cos i know I've been hopeless and sad since i can remember. Anxiety is the worst part. Yes situational triggers worsen. If you have other ideas great. D/x dysthymia (sp), with meds better but as my doc says "it's a bear". I never let it stop me, finished an advanced degree, married well, work, look successful, financially well off, fantastic kids...the anxiety compels me to perfection. Am i "happy"...uhm no but i don't expect that, peaceful is fine. I don't say i do well to brag i sound like an ahole but the point is all those things, material things, do nothing toward abating my depression. Ok i will shut up. Again i hope you dont have it hope you get helped. Oh one thing exercise and working out regularly makes a HUGE difference.

Get off the bloody drugs wimp. Deal with it, it's called "Life". Drugs will mask the problem for a short a while. You are the only one in control of you emotions and mindset. So stop whining and change. things.

What are you talking about? It is of my opinion that your post is incoherent. Like me, love me, hate me or dislike me. Without reservations I am what and who I am. Love you little turds, Nancy

True, I think there are some people who are just pre-disposed to being "whiny".

But it's foolish to say that a person can just "decide" to cheer up, if they are truly depressed. Drugs or not, some people have a different chemical make-up. Their brain is LITERALLY not made like your brain. So it's pretty stupid to just assume that everyone has the exact same thoughts and feelings that you do.

If someone is legitimately, chemically depressed...that's a terrible state in which to live. They have my sympathy.

As in most cases major issues in this world do not have easy solutions and drugs used for depression are not the solution to depression - they alieve a sympton like pain or escape. Not to bore anyone, but about 20 years ago I went through multiple, mind boggling crisis after crisis (multiple family member deaths - mother and father - financial collapse related to their deaths, wiped out through vandalism, drunk driver crashing my car, personal injury and loss of employment) all within 14 months. I was prescribed prozac by my doctor who was worried about me - fine, I was worried about myself. I took one and later in the evening took another and literally worn out went to bed. I went to sleep quickly - sometime during the night I woke and was sitting on my window sill (at that time living in an apartment on the 8th story) gazing at the midnight sky. Shaking like a leaf (the old adage) I literally crawled off the window sill into the kitchen, made a pot of coffee and started taking control of my life - and my own mind. I have never taken any medication since except for aspirin for a headache - I may sometime, but only after a really good physician telling me why and what the alternative would be if I didn't. It was not easy - and I do not pretend for one second to even suggest that this is a solution for others - but it was for me. I faced reality: no one was going to drug me into happy feel good, no one was going to dig myself out of financial hardship, no one was going to replace for loved ones gone. My heartfelt sympathy for anyone going to trials and tribulations - talk to anyone, talk to everyone, but let drugs be at last result if possible and ONLY prescibed by a physician you trust - NOT a pill pusher and certainly someone who does not understand and listens to you and your problems.

Thanks for wasting my time.

I started taking Paxil 12 years ago because I was self mutilating, having panic attacks, and had moderate levels of paranoia. It helped for about 9-10 years, although I did have infrequent incidents of self injury. I am still taking the meds as prescribed to me 12 years ago, however I have a very low level of motivation for anything. I feel overwhelmed about 4 days a week. I have not hurt myself in over 2 years but I do use non healthy coping skills for uncomfortable feelings, pretty much everyday.

And for all of you people talking about depressed people being whiny, I understand how you feel. But I also think that most of the whiny people are probably dual diagnosed. I don't talk to anyone about my problems out of shame. Except of course right now on topix haha

As far as why I feel that I'm depressed, I think some of it has to do with genetics. My mother and grandmother dealt with depression.

But most of it has to do with me, and the fact that I've just gotten myself into a self destructive cycle of really bad coping skills. And the fact that at this point I am surviving, even with my self destruction. That just reinforces that the way that I'm living is okay. You don't even know how many times I've thought to myself,'I wish I had some reason to get better'. Rarely I'll find a reason, but it leaves or fades, or whatever. But even that is 95% my fault.

Yes Guest, you may pray for me! Tomorrow I will be visiting my oncologist for another round of valcab 'Chemo theorpy'. Your prayers will be "Greatly appreciated". I know God is walking with me through this. It is people like you that really make the difference for those like us. There will be 25 to 35 of us doing chemo at the same time, so I will not ne alone, I have alot of sholders to lean on. Thank you so much for your Prayers and God bless you... I do get and topix and act like I don't have much 'upstairs', but this is one way of relieveing pressure and keeping sane at the same time. So much for the rant. Thank you again, and God bless You, Nancy.

You say you read 1/2 of my "therapeutic cleansing diatribe and then you realized you didn't give a crap".. That would be just about through this paragraph! To where I was talking of My wonderful support I had from My Family and Friends!.. "I was diagnosed with amyloidosis, which is a sorta rare diease. It was then they discovered I had Multimylomia, by then i was in stage 4, was in critical condition, but with the proper Chemo and many days in the Hosp and many nights of being sick with my Husband and three daughters and my friends around me, I made up my mind to fight this thing to the end"....You have a Great day, Don!
