Hi I would like any feedback in regard's to depression,bi-polar and odc??  These are what i have but am at the point that it's taking over my life and i feel like im not controlling myself but something else is??
Is it normal to feel so tired all the time,not being able to eat properly as my stomach always feels sickly,but i put this down to my nerves. not wanting to do thing's that i used to enjoy.I cant remember the last time i laughed. What imtrying to say is that i want my old life back again. I was so happy go lucky and was alway's the funny lady with the great jokes,ect!!! That has all gone but i cant seem to get it back again. Also my daughter told me last night that my whole family hate me and are scared of me??? I wouldn't hurt a fly let alone hurt my family. I honestly cant believe my family has said all this stuff about me or is my daughter just playing her usual mind games with me??? I dont know what to think anymore either. If i wasn't depressed i could deal with all of this stuff but i just CANT DO IT!!!!!! im just no good for anyone.
Maybe they should just lock me up and throw away the key?????
sorry im venting again. so can anyone answer my question regarding being completely debilitated......

Being depressed and having mood disorder is very frustrating. I believe it is a mistake to believe that we can control our moods by logical thinking. It is not always in our mind, but in the body, failing to produce the right hormones and neurotransmitters. It is the mind that is the victim of an underlying biochemical disorder that in many cases can be treated by nutritional means. This must be treated before we can consider any "psychological" aspects of the problem. I know this is very controversial.

and ask for a referral to a Nutritional Doctor, Clinical Nutritionist or a Nutritional Psychologist, if self-help therapy fails.

Hi,

First, I'm sorry you are dealing with depression. I can relate to what you are saying because I also used to be the funny, happy one. It may or may not be true what your daughter said about what your family said. Things often get misinterpreted when you don't speak to someone directly (like "Telephone"). If your family is anything like mine, they could just be frustrated that they don't know what to do to help you and don't like seeing you different. My mom seems so angry when I tell her how depressed I am, but she later tells me that she just loves me so much and wants me to be happy and doesn't know how to help me. Keep in mind that everyone has problems and is under stress about something, so knowing that you are not yourself is probably just one more thing on top of a pile of problems that could be angering your family. They also might not understand depression and don't know what to expect when they are with you.

I know that uneasy feeling in your stomach you are talking about. It's caused by the anxiety and worries. I get tired too. I feel like my worries and anxiety make me tired. And depression and stress will affect your eating/appetite. Some people don't want to eat at all and some people become emotional eaters, eating for comfort even though they may not be very hungry. Both can cause unhealthy weight loss or weight gain.

You sound like a really nice person. I know sometimes it feels like the best thing to do is just lock yourself away from people so that you don't continue to frustrate them, but losing complete contact is not the answer. I know with my situation, I recently (just yesterday) had to force myself to gain a new perspective on the situation that was causing my depression. I had to do this or else I was just going to feel sick all the time, fail out of school and lose all my friends. I know the situation I'm in right now is unfortunate, and being a sensitive person makes it really hard for me to feel good at myself, but deep down, I know I still deserve to be happy.

I would like to hear more about the source of your depression. So far, I feel so much healthier since I decided to change my attitude. I've even starting laughing again. I'm not 100% back yet, but I'm hoping I'll stay up like this and not fall back down again because that life I was living for the past four months was terrible. Maybe we can brainstorm a way to get you feeling and acting more like yourself again. I can also tell you more about my strategies if you would like.

Please hang in there. The world needs you and your wonderful gifts.

NW

dear beverly. i ask myself these questions from time to time. i saw the best consultant psychiatrist/forensic psychiatrist in this country for four and a half years. i wote to him, and said, thank you for your help and committement to me, and i wrote-something along the lines of, it is with me, thus i am me, and that i have exhausted you enough. i learnt that i am me, with diabetes, with infertility, with a bad back, with depression, with ptsd, with severe borderline personality disorder, hospitalisations, treatments etc. i have never changed, people perceptions are not ours, i am me-everything included. keep well and safe. jamie

NightWish,

Beverly has another thread that explains the source of her sadness and anger. I think it is called (my memory) Can somebody help with bipolar issues, or something like that. You may want to read what she is going through with family right now. It will give you some insight as to what she is going through at the moment. I feel that we can give her alot of support here.

You are a very valued member here and I think that you can give Beverly a lot of support.

Best wishes for a wonderful day.

Hugs, Karen

Hello Nightwish,
 
Thx for ur reply. Your very kind. Im not sure if you know much about hormones or lack of?? I have some blood test results regarding my hormone count,and this is how it goes.
1.sensitive testosterone: Ref Range-(0.5-1.4) is what it should be.
                                      My ref range is *nmol/L-zero count??
2.sensitive estrogen: Ref range-(100-377) is what it should be.
                                My Ref Range is **pmol/L e2/-zero count??
 
Basically my estrogen level should be between 100/377 but is *zero.
and my tesosterone level should be between(0.5-1.4) but is **zero.
 
And i wonder why im an absolute mess and dont know whether im Aurthur of Martha!!!! I cant concentrate at all.I forget what i was going to do. My mind is all over the place and it's getting to hard to cope with all this **** going on still. If it doesn't rain,it pours instead and that's the story of my life.......
 
thx for listening to all.

Hi dg,

I'm sorry but I don't know much about hormone levels. I'm also sorry that this is causing you to feel poorly. But with your positive spirit, I think you can get through this difficult time. I know you have a much longer thread about the specifics of your issue that I am probably much too far behind on, but I hope you are receiving the medical care you need to address the problem. If you aren't, hang in there, as I know how it feels to not receive the treatment you are needing.

Find the simple joys in life. They are usually the most important things anyway.

NW :-)

Beverly,
 
I am not positive, but if you are sure that the doctor is going to admit you, and you have a choice, I think, (THINK) that if you admit yourself, you have more choices as to when you leave.  I am not positive about this, Jamie knows more than I do about the legalities of these matters.  Do you think he is admitting you because of your manic behavior?  You might do well to have your meds adjusted in a controlled environment.  I know that you have really been struggleing with everything.  So try not to get frightened.  This could be the best thing that has ever happened.  You can get away from your situation at home and do some thinking and make some decisions.  Try to go with the situation and get what good you can out of it.  You really are in a tough situation right now and I think that you do need a break.   But I really think if you self admit, you can leave when you want to.  NOT POSITIVE OF THIS... 
 
There have been other members that have stayed on healingwell during their hospital stay.  So if you go in, make sure to stay in touch with us.  We will keep you company throughout your stay.  But take care of you first.  That is most important.  That is the advice that you often give, follow it with your heart. 
 
I think that you have been carrying a heavy burden Beverly.  And I really think it is time that you get a break.  So this just might be for the best.   Remember, what you say, take care of you.
 
Keep us posted.  Email me if you feel you need to.  I am off work for two more days and I will be sure to answer.  Providing computer is working good.  I don't know if it is the forum or my computer, but it is awful slow.  Have you been haveing any troubles like that?  Let me know.
 
I am getting a computer chip to give me more memory, but I am scared to put the chip in.  I guess you have to be really careful as not to mess up the computer.  I don't know, I would like santa to bring me a new computer.  But that remains to be seen. 
 
Take care Beverly,
 
Please post again

  1. yes they can, providing you meet the criteria to be an involuntary patient.

criteria,

1. unable to be treated safely in the community and your mental illness needs immediate treatment.

2. other peoples safety/property etc.

3. that you are deemed mentally unstable and will deteriorate.

4. a risk to yourself, self-harm/suicide

5. have refused treatment and unable to consent to less restrictive treatment.

 

within 24 hours you will be assessed as to wether you saty as an involuntary patient or not. karen is correct, if you go in voluntarily you will have more say and rights, furthermore you can discharge yourself at most facilities, moreover during improved treatment you will be able to have small leave requirements as well. usually as a part of discharge planning.

i will talk more about your rights as an invlountary patient later. please not if you go in voluntarily, your likely to be discharged a lot quicker. hope this helps. jamie

Damaged, I feel like I can relate to you. I have bipolar disorder and PTSD. I'm suffering from depression now.

In Aug. 2007, I had to have a total colectomy. My constipation stayed and in May of this year I had an ileostomy. It didn't work and I had emergency surgery in June. I was in the hospital for 52 days. Now I have an ileo tube running down my leg into a urine bag. I was just at Cleveland Clinic and they say that my small intestines are still in a knotted mess and it will be at least June of next year before I can have surgery for a traditional ileostomy.

I am very discouraged and depressed. It is hard to crawl out of where I am right now. I just want to be fixed and then left alone.

Hey Jamiee how's thing's going for you?? Are u feeling better yet with ur teething prob's. Thx for ur kind reply. Yes i will have to take thing's a little slower as this virus is really knocking me hard. Ive just finished a job that i did thismorning and im completely stuffed. And this house is very easy compared to the one that i have 2morrow again,which is 90 squares of living area 15squares of pool and spa area and a seven square garage and ther are only 2 adult's and 2 children in such a huge house. Personally i dont think people need a home that big??? So now ive gone from doing this house on a Friday each week to every wednesday & Friday's each week, so im getting to the point where im having to knock back other job's as im so busy. Last night i picked up another 2 job's in heelers Hill u should know where that is jamiee?? Anyway i now have 6 client's and am nearly working full time!!! "cant complain hey". Look after urself jamiee as ur a good guy,and u know how to cheer a person up!!!!!
