   Hi Teri! I'm not sure if I have allergy but that is what the doctor said about me. Right now my rhinitis is getting worse and it really makes me feel more and more depress. I already have a depression (although I haven't been able to seek professional help) and this rhinitis just makes me more and more depress. I don't know if it's really rhinitis or acute sinusitis, but whatever it is, it's making me more and more sick at myself. I just feel like everything about my life sucks, I know it kinda sound crazy, maybe I am..Thanks for your time....

Good Morning, Karlo! tongue
 
I'm sorry to hear that you are feeling this badly!! sad Karlo, did the Dr. recommend anything for you to take for your allergies?  If you have an infection, you would really need to take an antibiotic, however, sometimes they recommend other help aids like nasal inhalors to help you with this problem, if no infection is present.
 
Keep me posted, Karlo, and I will hope that you are feeling better very soon!! 
 
Hugs, Teri tongue
 
PS  Have you discussed your depression with your Dr. as well?  That is very important to get that under control.  I suffer from depression as well, and the stress it puts on you, makes the rest of you feel badly as well.  Please talk to a Dr. re this. yeah

Hi Teri, the doctor that i went to gave me a nasal spray called Budecort and a tablet named Cetirizin and the other one I don't really know. Somehow it works when I took it last year when my severe rhinitis or whatever it is attack me, but somehow the physical effect of the rhinitis did not disappear, like the kind of swelling look of my nose. I have to admit I did not finish the whole medication bec. I got scared of going to the doctor bec. I always end up spending a thousand pesos everytime I go there. And now, my rhinitis return and it 's making me more and more miserable, I just feel like I always end up on the losing end. Just when I thought I'm gonna be okey I end up suffering again,it really sucks. For 17 yrs. I've been feeling down, although I haven't been to a doctor about it bec. I don't think we have a psychiatrist here in our town, and things are just getting bad for me.
By the way I am from the Philippines and I'm sorry if my English is not that good.Thanks for your time...

Karlo, your English is wonderful - don't worry about that!  tongue I am concerned though with your depression!!  I understand that you are worried about the money situation re visiting your Dr.  I'm not familiar with your country's system of health care so it's hard for me to suggest too much...here in the states we do not need to see a Pyschiatrist for depression.  Our regular medical Dr.'s are able to diagnose and help as needed with that - can you do that there?  If so, my suggestion would be to see if what I suggested earlier re antibiotics, or a steroid nasal inhalor would help?, and if he could recommend something for your depression, if he felt that it was necessary.
 
The best of luck to you, Karlo! - Please keep me posted.
 
Hugs, Teri tongue

I just went to the doctor last Monday and he gave me the nasal spray Budecort,a capsule named Cloxacillin and a small tablet I cannot figure out the name, he told me to return after 10 days which I don't have plan of doing, I just spent 1,600 pesos for that one time visit. I admit my depression is like getting worse, since I was 13 I already have this feeling of constant sadness, crying almost every night and just feel like I will never be happy for the rest of my life. Last year I suddenly feel good about myself, I started going out with my friends and having fun, I join family reunions and do stuff that I normally would not do. I even thought of going back to college, which is my biggest frustration, but suddenly it all ends when my rhinitis came. I just feel like, God won't allow me to be happy, I'm already feeling good maybe not that great but at least I was gaining confidence but then suddenly something bad happen to me, it really sucks! I know I sound lame, shallow and stupid about feeling depress because of my rhinitis and I wish I am not, I wish I am not this crazy, stupid or whatever...Thanks a lot for listening to a complete stranger like me, I truly appreciate it....

Hi Karlo! tongue
 
Well, I'm glad that you went back to your Dr., but I'm sorry that you are still feeling so down!
We have other forums on HealingWell.com that you might like to visit and find others with similar feelings.  One would be the anxiety forum and the other would be the depression forum.  I've gone to both of them myself. yeah   Sometimes the additional support and caring of others who've walked in your shoes, helps more than you might realize.
 
Please keep me posted on how you are doing.  I care.
 
Hugs, Teri tongue

Karlo,

I'm so sorry that you are having to go through all this.  Do you have anyone that you can talk to?!  Please bring this to your Dr.'s attention immediately, Karlo!!

Please check back in here with me!  I do care.

Karlo,
 
I mentioned in another post that we have other forums here.  Have you looked into the Depression forum yet?  They are a great group of people that suffer from depression and they offer one another support and compassion!  I would strongly suggest just visiting over there and if you are comfortable, try starting a post telling them a little about yourself...
 
My biggest suggestion, however, is to go to your regular Dr. in your town and open up and tell him/or her that you are experiencing depression type symptoms and mention what you've told me here!  Good luck and my personal best wishes to you, Karlo!
 
Hugs, Teri
