        I've suffered from depression and anxiety for most of my life with major breakdowns every five or so years. I've been on long-term disability with my latest bout for almost a year. I ****************ing hate what it's done to my life, although I've managed to marry a wonderful woman, raise a precious daughter and build a successful career in spite of my illness. I hate how it completely derails things every few years.

        I attend group session at the local mental health centre three times a week, one-on-one once a week, practice mindfullness and cognitive behaviour therapy and take Effexor and Seroquel. I take Clonazepam as needed for anxiety -- maybe once every couple of weeks, although I know I should be using it more but I try to tough it out.

        I've tried altering my diet and working out but have not been able to climb out of this one yet. It's been the worst I've ever experienced and both my GP and my psych -- who have been treating me for more than a decade -- think my bouts will get closer together and continue to worsen as I get older. (I'm 40.)

        Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

          A good book to read is "Idiots guide to conquering fear and anxiety." It touches on everything.

            Wow man that sucks! Ever try another GP/psych combination? Do you follow your CBT well? How much mindfulness a day?

              my wife has some anxiety issues that cause a lot of problems between us because i have effectively zero.

              she's all wound up about something, and i'm all "zero ****************s given".

                Personally, I never really had issues with it...

                I'm a firm believer that you don't need drugs to conquer anxiety... I Mean, if Prozac somehow cured the problem, then great, but it doesn't

                  Therefore most will never truly deal with their problem


                  Sometimes the "problem" is a chemical imbalance and medication is often a key component of treatment.

                    This just isn't true. Many can't deal with it any other way since everybody's got their own cross to bear. I've got family members in healthcare, and lots of people just don't have the tools to do it without. Drugs are part of the solution, but they may also be a necessary part. There's no shame in it if it helps improve your quality of life.

                      We've been a pretty good team in beating it back in the past, so I'm inclined to stick with them. I try to follow CBT as much as I can but when I really spiral down, it's almost impossible. I've literally been on the floor trying to crawl to the bathroom and my wife's trying to get me to do exercises. It would be comical if it wasn't so ****************ing ridiculous.

                        Yep, dealing with it for almost 20 years. I used to exercise and take meds. I haven't been exercising, but I do take meds regularly and eat a pretty good diet. Still deal with bad days, but these three things have helped a lot.

                          I've grown used to people offering me their opinion on how I just need to keep working out and thinking positively and my depression and anxiety will *poof* disappear.

                          My GP put it best when we were discussing it: "Would you tell a diabetic to run around the ****************ing block and think positively to cure their illness?"

                          It never ceases to amaze me that some people STILL don't view depression as a legitimate illness. These same people have no problem identifying Alzheimer's as an illness of the brain that effects the sufferer's psychology and physiology.

                          My brain doesn't make enough serotonin and the little it produces isn't processed the same as a "normal" brain.

                          Plus, people have been studying depression (or melancholy) for thousands of years. Hippocrates (of the Hippocratic oath) was the first to formally describe the symptoms of depression. He lived from 470 - 360 BCE.

                            I hate depression/anxiety. Some of the triggers are so stupid and annoying, and they ruin EVERYTHING. Its so frustrating to know everything would be fine otherwise.

                                well put. I have struggled on and off with it most of mylife. Last few years i've had it in check. Celexa did it for me. It clicked something in my brain that allowed me to say "**************** it, i'm me, deal with it" which is all most of us really want anyway.

                                I have also taken benzos and whatnot in the past, and while they work, not something i ever want to take long term again

                                good luck everybody
