Headphones; audio recordings and sound compositions: Lullaby, Shame and Memory
Our depression patient reclines on a post-Freudian couch/therapy office chair upholstered with burned-out velvet, etched with organically patterned molecular diagrams of Prozac, neurons, synapses, and serotonin receptors.
Nearby a single glove is left behind, so heavily laden with dripping, tear-like beads that any wearer would be rendered motionless. Grayish handkerchiefs embroidered and printed with anti-depressant imagery are preserved in containers reminiscent both of tissue and specimen boxes.
Depression is a debilitating mood disorder and medical condition that persists over an extended time period, or occurs in episodes that interfere with normal life. Symptoms of the most common forms- Major Depression and Dysthymic Disorder- include changes in sleeping and eating patterns, difficulty thinking, feelings of guilt or worthlessness, fatigue, anxiety, changes in motor functioning, muscular pain, digestive problems, hopelessness and thoughts of death. In Dysthymic Disorder, symptoms may be less severe, but last longer than two years. Over 17 million Americans are diagnosed with depression annually.
Women are twice as likely than men to suffer from depression, and this disease is misdiagnosed 30-50% of the time. It is often concurrent with eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety disorders, also more prevalent in females. Despite this, the over-prescription of anti-depressant medicationswhich often have serious side-effectsis alarming. Females are 2 times more likely than males to be taking antidepressants.

Do you think the numbers of people with post traumatic stress disorder has increased in Israel/Palestine?Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a debilitating condition that follows a terrifying event. Often, people with PTSD have persistent frightening thoughts and memories of their ordeal and feel emotionally numb, especially with people they were once close to. PTSD, once referred to as shell shock or battle fatigue, was first brought to public attention by war veterans, but it can result from any number of traumatic incidents. These include kidnapping, serious accidents such as car or train wrecks, natural disasters such as floods or earthquakes, violent attacks such as a mugging, rape, or torture, or being held captive. The event that triggers it may be something that threatened the person s life or the life of someone close to him or her. Or it could be something witnessed, such as mass destruction after a plane crash.
Whatever the source of the problem, some people with PTSD repeatedly relive the trauma in the form of nightmares and disturbing recollections during the day. They may also experience sleep problems, depression, feeling detached or numb, or being easily startled. They may lose interest in things they used to enjoy and have trouble feeling affectionate. They may feel irritable, more aggressive than before, or even violent. Seeing things that remind them of the incident may be very distressing, which could lead them to avoid certain places or situations that bring back those memories. Anniversaries of the event are often very difficult.
PTSD can occur at any age, including childhood. The disorder can be accompanied by depression, substance abuse, or anxiety. Symptoms may be mild or severe--people may become easily irritated or have violent outbursts. In severe cases they may have trouble working or socializing. In general, the symptoms seem to be worse if the event that triggered them was initiated by a person--such as a rape, as opposed to a flood.
Ordinary events can serve as reminders of the trauma and trigger flashbacks or intrusive images. A flashback may make the person lose touch with reality and reenact the event for a period of seconds or hours or, very rarely, days. A person having a flashback, which can come in the form of images, sounds, smells, or feelings, usually believes that the traumatic event is happening all over again.
Not every traumatized person gets full-blown PTSD, or experiences PTSD at all. PTSD is diagnosed only if the symptoms last more than a month. In those who do have PTSD, symptoms usually begin within 3 months of the trauma, and the course of the illness varies. Some people recover within 6 months, others have symptoms that last much longer. In some cases, the condition may be chronic. Occasionally, the illness doesn t show up until years after the traumatic event.
Rates of PTSD skyrocket in war torn areas.
On the verge of suicide... please please help.?This is going to be a lengthy post. Forgive me I don t know were else to turn.
I m just about on the verge of suicide, I m really coming here as a last resort I really need some answers. Somebody help me.
3 months ago I was diagnosed with severe depression and anxiety. Followed by some depersonalization. I went though bouts of being a hypochondriac after this.
I thought I had; brain damage, brain cancer, I was mentally retarded, I was deformed, the list goes on.
( This is where my real question comes in )
3 weeks ago something sparked the fear in me that " what if I m gay " Even though I had NEVER been gay or question if I was gay before, I started obsessing over it and actually started feeling an attraction to men. I started picking out EVERY piece of evidence to back this up. I had convinced myself that I was gay for almost a week. After I talked to my therapist and explained the situation, she stated that she really didn t think I was gay and I was just worried about it so much that the symptoms started to occur.
Before I go any further, let me clarify some things.
1. I have been evaluated for; schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, and OCD. I do not have any of them.
2. I had a bad experience with Marijuana, which triggered my depression/anxiety/depersonalization.
Now, here is the part that makes me want to take my life. I m so very close to committing suicide, I had held the gun in my hand last night, and really gave it thought. I need some serious advice.
I m 19 years old. Male. Grew up in a pretty healthy environment. My mom and dad split when I was 5. There was A LOT of verbal fighting between my mom and I until I was about 18. Along with my brother, who him and I used to physically fight very often. ( It was more of I beating him up ) Not to an extent of blood, but pushing and hitting on the arms
Well, now I m afraid that " what if I turn into a murder or a pedophile " This thought scares me so bad, that I m willing take take my life to prevent becoming a monster. Let me provide some evidence to help you better form and opinion.
First off, my view on pedophiles is of complete and utter disgust. They re scum and and horrid people that commit unspeakable acts upon pre-pubescent children. I guess that could be categorized as being a child molester too, which is even WORSE. It s a sicking act which under NO circumstances should ever be committed.
when I was younger, around 13 or 14, I was becoming interested in pornography, of women. I have heard and read that porn can be a warning sign. Although, I know A LOT of men that watch pornography.
I used to look up 13 - 16 year-old videos when I was younger and around that age, not often, but it did occur . I don t know if this would be normal or not.
Let me clarify that the though of becoming a Pedophile and having the characteristics of one makes me so sick to my stomach, that I m on the verge of vomiting right now. Those type of people are truly evil. They destroy the lives of children, if they re molesters, and turn into a type of person that cannot be a part of functioning society.
Anyway. After work my friend and I ( who s 23 ) Were having a conversation about girls that look older than they actually are. He stated that he had seen a girl who looked older than she was, and was attracted to her, only to find out she was 16. He said things like that worried him because they re going to get him into unwanted trouble. Then he said something about his younger sister acting that way, and being 11 or 12 and wearing clothes that an 18 year old should be wearing. It sparked some interest in me and Imaged it for a second, and I immediately started having an anxiety attack, only to start putting past experiences similar to this together. Forming the fear of " what if I m a pedophile, or might turn into one " This is something that I could never live with.
I never had any fantasies about children before. My sex dreams have always been about girls my age, and that I liked. I ve never seen a child in public or anywhere else and gotten aroused. I feel so HORRIBLE about watching underage videos when I was around 13 and 14. This worries me beyond belief.
Please... are any of these things normal in young boys ( early teenage years ) ??
I can t bring myself to even bring the subject up to anybody else... I just want these horrid thoughts to stop.
And now, I m so worried about it and so worried that I am these things, or turning into these things, that sick. horrible thoughts are starting to manifest like they did when I convinced myself I was gay, or when I convinced myself that my pot was laced ( when it wasn t )
Could this be the depression/anxiety/depersonalization? or could an actual problem be rising it s ugly head here?
I do not ever want to become any of those things, and if there is a
I know that you said that you are sure that you do not have OCD, but it really sounds like it to me. Even though pedophiles disgust you, you fear that one day you may become one. Individuals with obsessive-compulsive disorder often have disturbing, intrusive thoughts like this, and these thoughs cause them a great deal of shame and embarrassment because they know that they would never act upon these thoughts. It is not your fault. Please talk to your psychiatrist about these intrusive thoughts, and please don t be embarrassed to do so. That is his job and he will not judge you; he can help you understand more about OCD, and help you overcome these issues. Please don t committ suicide!! You need to understand that you are worthy of getting help, and you deserve a happy life. Trust me, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. I know it is hard to see that light now, but it s there.
