Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hi my name is XXXXX XXXXX i'm 19 years old.I have been dealing with depression for about 2 years now, at firs It it was the depression where i was sad and cried alot, then when i went to college it turned into this numbness. Iv'e been seeing psycholgists and treating it .. AM ON 50 MG OF PROZAC, ALSO I'M TAKING CONCERTA FOR ADD. but i feel THE DEPRESSION MEDICINE is not working. I could describe my feeling as nothing. sometimtes i'm not able to feel happy or sad. Also, although i'm able to laugh sometimes and have fun there is always something in the back of my head that makes me know i still don't feel happy and normal. I don't have dersire for things like i used to and i feel like im just going through the motions of life and not enoying it. Has anyone came to you with the same problems? if so, what did you recomend to them or what do you reccomend to me ?
Also, self medication doesn't cross my mind either. It's to the point the alchol, sucide, drinking, smoking don't even seem like they would help. Especially because i have self medicated wth alcohol about a year ago and found no results. Now i don't even have those desires. Also, i am very intpo my religion (mormon) and i used god as my method of self help. It's getting to the point where im loosing all hope...can you please give some of your views on my information. Thank you so much!
I haven't heard of dysthemia before, but what you describe to me is what i have been doing. Iv'e been seeing a therapist and takign medication. I feel like there is somehting in me that is missing, The part in me that helps me to know the pupose in life. Do you know of anything else that has been prescribed for people with this problem?
