Dating a man with manic depression

When that person insist on pushing the issue, we get impatient.

We are good at hiding our fire inside and avoiding strife, but that is taken as a weekness and evenually backfire in the other persons face.

Remarkably, it was right in our own backyard, so to speak. There is so much to share about the blessing that this Group was and still is to my husband and me, our child, and our family as a whole but there is another part of the story I need to tell. As painful and debilitating as the first episode was, the pain of anxiety during the second one was so severe that I felt hopeless that I would ever feel any bit of peace again.

In my attempt to exhaust all possibilities near and far, I found a DBSA chapter in Greenwich, CT. Throughout all of those years of searching for and finding help for our child and our family, there was another person among us who suffered silently but severely from depression and anxiety—for many years, in fact, dating back to her twenties. I thought that dying must be the only way I might know relief.

Daley is Professor of Psychiatry and Social Work One of the most moving talks I ever heard was given by former U. He gave a detailed account of all that he, his wife and many others did to help Terry recover, only to be shocked and saddened late one December evening when a police officer and minister came to his home to tell the Mc Governs that Terry was dead.

He spoke eloquently about his daughter Terry, who had both alcoholism and depression.

Prozac is a drug that was released by the Eli Lilly corporation in 1987 aimed at fighting depression.

Also fill out the Medwatch form and also call FDA at 1-800-FDA 1088 press 0 or call (301) 443-1240.Any feedback would be appreciated as I am through with medical doctors! I am just recently off Prozac for the first time in a year and a half. I was diagnosed with severe depression and started prozac. It helped pretty well for my depression but it also, in the beginning, induced suicidal feelings and harming myself ( burning and cutting myself and reckless behavior including alcohol abuse and promiscuity). I have experienced the most unusual of side effects: Lactation!! Hypomania, bursitis, headaches, anorexia, bruising. So I have most of the common and not so common side effects of this drug. I need help, I have a younger sister she is 18 she has had no issues before, but all of a sudden she is really sad and throwing temper tantrums.I have a history with the drug since the time I was first prescribed it at age 16. I recommend to all parents and teens, do not consider Prozac for treatment of severe depression, I believe it can lead to intense suicidal feelings and suicide, for the first few months on it. I have been on and off medications for the past twenty years now. However I continue taking this as I feel the benefits outweigh the negatives. I also feel I am on the edge of a manic episode, cannot figure out if it is prozac related or just my normal behavior. I feel like a 90 year old and thought I had Rheumaoid Arthritis, but nope, just LUPUS! She says she has no friends, and that (me and my middle sister left her, we both left to go to college).She remained quiet about her plight until one day when she could not suffer in silence any longer, she broke. I had one “breakdown” in the midst of my search for help for our child and then another several years later, a more severe one. (Those of us in mental pain are masters of isolation.) But, the second one which was far more debilitating―I could not hide it. In those early days and weeks of this second collapse, I did not attend Group nor do much of anything except try to lift my head and find my place in the world.I was literally an anxiety-ridden mound on the floor and I wanted to flee from my own skin. I could barely sit still from the anxiety coursing through every fiber of my being. Tamerin, I worked to try to rally―relentlessly trying to realign the out-of-synch gears of my brain.
