Diane’s Journal: Chapter One, An Overview Of Depression

Finally, when my mom came home, I didn’t want anything to do with her. Our dad begged for a truce between us. Bitterness, anger, and hurt filled my heart. My hatred for her became apparent to everyone.

He knew and loved so many who “had something,” and that something could be what society hated or society awarded. To those who benefitted from being different, more powerful, more successful, more articulate than the rest of us, he found common ground that turned into bipartisan support for legislation such as the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The vote for the ADA in the us Senate was 91-6. Many credit Kennedy with that.

This is not an isolated incident. In Connecticut a woman started a fire in a nursing home where she was staying in Hartford. The fire killed 16 people but the woman was found not competent because she had dementia, depression and multiple sclerosis. The woman was admitted to a mental hospital where she should have been in the first place.

This waiting time is the time you can use to improve yourself. I’m sure you have something you always wanted to do. Find something that you have long dreamed about doing and throw your life into it. Now is the time to pursue all the non-romantic things you have always longed to achieve. This is “me” time for you now. Use it! Do you want to make yourself better in any way, now is the time to do it. Find a way to use all this negative energy and turn it into something positive. This will make you feel good about yourself again.

Who is sexier, the confident guy with the shaved, bald head or the one with bad posture and a comb-over? Which of these two guys has chosen to own his dwindling hair follicles and which one is ashamed? Denying your illness is a form of psychic comb-over. It says “if I pretend my heart/kidneys/bones are fine, then everything will be OK”. Believe me, no one is fooled. Least of all, you.

Here’s something you can do to feel better. During the time when your depression and crazy acts up, why don’t you write down what you feel? This is extremely useful. In your notes, describe your problems, yourself, the people that you come into contact with and even the world in general. Write all that you want to write about and don’t hold anything back. By doing so, this will be helpful and might not worsen your depression and crazy.

Stop complaining about your life all the time. There is no sense asking for advice from people close to you if you don’t listen to their suggestions at all.

How To Be Successful In Life

Know that you are not crazy. Depression is a real illness and should be afforded the same respect as any other disease. It is your body telling you that something is wrong, whether it is a chemical imbalance in the brain or unresolved emotions. Depression is your body’s way of telling you that it is becoming overwhelmed and needs help.

We had begun marriage counseling, in conjunction with his mental health counseling. He was being treated for depression at this point. I did feel at many times in these counseling sessions that I got more out of out of them, because I put so much more into them. He hated the intrusion into our lives as he sometimes called counseling. He forgot this was his depression and sometimes refused to go. I would just reschedule his appointments. He was misdiagnosed as having depression and crazy but when things continued to deteriorate, further we got the early onset of Alzheimer’s.

They will tell you over and over that you are their savior and you wonder why this incredible person hasn’t already found the love of his/her life. And you are thanking your lucky stars for the relationship. There is an irony though, they actually have little or no self worth. They build and improve their self worth on their relationship with you. And even a stranger irony is that you too might easily build and improve your self worth based on having this relationship.

In one way we’re uncomfortable with what is too much at one time and too much good feedback – our consciences doubt the sincerity of the feedback and what this is saying at a deeper level is we doubt ourselves. We also don’t want to be pushed past our limits. What is good is sometimes too good.

Another good coping technique is to take the opportunity to look at things from a fresh point of view. Try looking at things from a different perspective and you’ll perhaps see that it wasn’t the end of the world that you thought it was. Try and see what possible good may come from the situation and that you may have something good to offer someone new. What qualities could you offer that new person in your life? Almost certainly, there’s someone new out there who’ll appreciate you for who you are and all you need to do is wait for them to appear.

And we often have to come back to it. Why should we otherwise be swayed to believe about ourselves some divergent sense of falsehood; this often knocking the creative breath out of us as if we were winded, stammering for inspiration whilst clamouring on canvas.

The state of our health is closely tied to our sense of confidence and worth – too closely tied. Our society tends to glorify the healthy. Worse even than vilifying the sick, we render them invisible. Perhaps there is some deeply ingrained survival-of-the-fittest instinct at work here, but i think it is time we put it to rest.

Those whose “something” was the excuse for hatred have benefited from his support for the family and Medical Leave Act, the Fair Housing Act Amendments of 1988, the Disabilities Education Act, the family Opportunity Act, and mental health parity legislation. Now we have the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act. Now every polling place is accessible thanks to the Help America Vote Act. Perhaps, in his memory, we will have an act that will expose and indemnify hate crimes against the disabled. Perhaps in his name we will someday have decent health care.

Bipolar Disorder – Why Hasn’t God Healed Me?

A – My short term goals are to focus on writing one quality article each day, and continuing to network with other writers. My long term goal is to have a book published by the time I’m 40 – a dream I’ve had since I was a child.

In extreme cases the disease suffering with depression and crazy lands up in a phase of psychosis. This is the time when the patient has bizarre thoughts, like delusions and hallucinations. At this time the patient looses the senses of his/her immediate environment and is not able to make out the difference between realism & hallucinations. So he /she become so vulnerable that they can not even save themselves from natural calamities.

It is never too late to be a better friend, a better mother, a better sibling or a better person in general. There is no use attacking yourself with guilt from past mistakes or blunders. You can always move forward. Keep this in your head and you will see it manifest before your eyes.

Go easy on everyone: family, friends, coworkers, and even the people you pass on the street. Instead of choosing to see only the most unflattering or harsh qualities embodied in each person, you should look for their positive attributes as well. If you catch yourself thinking one snide thing about a person with no reason, backtrack and identify two great things about him or her.

The seafoods have also been a major source in the diet plans. Reduction of excessive body weight is another benefit of the food items. The basic components that are responsible for the so many benefits of the seafood are also known to increase the immunity of the body. However, it is mandatory that these be prepared under certain required conditions so as to preserve the benefits of the food. Fish is the most common seafood that is consumed. It contains the maximum benefits out of all ocean foods. However, it rots very quickly. So fish should be consumed within a day and preserved only under certain temperature conditions. Otherwise, it may lose all the benefits of the foods.

I had been able to dismiss all those little behaviors before this. However for him to walk past me as if I was just another faceless person in the crowd, made me realize there was more of a problem then i had realized.

The first thing that your doctor will need to do would be to determine if you have bipolar or not. This will be done by running a series of tests. The second step is to determine which type you have and then look for a suitable treatment. Normally, treatment will be in the form of medication. There are several different types of drugs available to treat bipolar and it usually takes awhile to find the one that will work for each individual. The bad thing about bipolar medication is that most of them have side effects that can be very severe for some people. You will most likely go through several different types of medications before you find one that will suit your needs.

Life is full of hardships, including illness. We don’t have to like them but we do need to own them. I have asthma, a temperamental back and a bum hip. I also have dark hair, a love of gardening and an affection for my electric blanket on cold, winter nights. This is who I am. If you have cancer or lupus or need dialysis, don’t stuff this part of you into the shadows. You are who you are and every experience adds to the picture. Believe me, I am not saying that there is some magical gift to be found in your illness (although sometimes that does happen). But I am saying that you need to wrap your arms around ALL of yourself – even the parts that you wish were different.

First you need to deal with the mental aspect of the breakup. The part that tells you that you are alone for the rest of your life and nothing will ever get better.

Having a spiritual faith to lean against, even positive thinking, can help you change your thoughts and try to see meaning and hope when you are feeling at your worst. If you are just feeling sad at times when you would normally feel sad, then faith can help. But faith alone will not work in clinical depression, bipolar depression or endogenous recurring depression.

You should also consider re-thinking the way you are looking at your situation. Take a minute and look at the situation from a different perspective. While you may be thinking of it as the end of the world, another person may look at it differently.

The biggest thing you can do to speed up the process of getting over your ex and to keep yourself positive about the situation is to not see them. Avoid contact with your ex until you have fully dealt with the emotions that you are trying to deal with.

First, I learned that depression and crazy is hereditary: a person may inherit the whole thing or inherit it in part, the fullest cycling or a lesser cycling, or one may get either the manic side or the depressed side. It was truly a revelation. It explained a lot about me, and my brothers and sisters. Knowing this, we have a much better chance of trying to control it.
