  • I am depressed and I don't know what to do.?

    Hi, I have these thoughts floating around about life. If I fail school, where will it lead me? I don't want to fail NCEA for my school that I go to, and if I do, what will my parents think of me? I am in heaps of trouble as there are times where I don't know what to do. Should I cut my wrists? Should I kill myself? I don't want to do any of that. I love my family passionately but I worry that I am a huge mistake in my family. I have tried cutting my wrists before, it only left scratches though because I was too scared about going deeper. I feel like the main reason for my depression is school and what it is making me do. I am currently failing NCEA Level 1, and I don't know how or what to do? I can't talk to anyone in my family because I don't want them to have these thoughts of me hanging myself. I... I don't know what to do...

  • How can I help my teenage son?

    Best answer: Perhaps you can look into how to possibly get legal conservatorship and/or guardianship over your son as he's 18, so it may be tougher to have control over his medical treatment (and/or finances). The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has more general info re: the family members or caregivers role... show more
    Best answer: Perhaps you can look into how to possibly get legal conservatorship and/or guardianship over your son as he's 18, so it may be tougher to have control over his medical treatment (and/or finances).

    The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has more general info re: the family members or caregivers role in someone with mental illness (and there may be a local support group or workshop for the friends or relatives):

    https://www.nami.org/Find-Support/Family-Members-and-Caregivers and can click "being prepared for a crisis" or other categories on the left-hand side of the page.

    Just as a point of reference, here is a government website for more *general* info re: conservatorship and/or guardianship, for instance:

    Best answer: A psychiatrist has said that therapy always involves some self-help - "You have to do some homework." I'll tell you what you can do about this problem that bothers you, your lack of motivation.

    Cognitive-behavioral therapy has a very simple and effective principle for motivation. When a task seems like its too big, think of it as a series of tasks that you can do one at a time and start with something really, really easy. If the task is cleaning the house, start by cleaning the kitchen counters. Or, work for 5 min and take a short break. Breaks are good but always watch the clock. Homework - proofread a paper or preview a chapter you're going to read by looking at headings, sub-headings, etc. Look for natural points in time to take breaks, like after reading a chapter.

    The easiest thing of all is just to breathe slowly, imagine yourself getting started to work, and then getting up and getting started.

    Another thing that's very good for motivation is to get more energy. As strange as it may seem, you may find that you get more energy by relaxing. Just breathe slowly for a few minutes. Exercise is a great energy booster. Don't be afraid of exercise. Light exercise, as little as 20 min brisk walking a day, can help, and you can add to that gradually so long as you don't get carried away, make yourself sick of exercise with too much of it and quit.

    People often get depressed with a downward cognitive-behavioral spiral, negative thinking that leads to unhealthy behaviors and more negative thinking. Recovery involves an upward spiral of positive thinking and healthy behaviors. I can show you information about healthy behaviors shown to help with depression. If you see a doctor about your problem, the information you'd want to relate is how you're feeling at different times of day, any symptoms you might have, such as change of appetite or sleep, and things in your life affecting how you feel.

    Treating depression with just a prescription is not a very good approach. Hopefully, the doctor would give you a good referral.

    This answer has resources for healthy lifestyle - the basic lifestyle program of the Univ of Kansas and mind-body methods from Asia adopted by psychology.

    I have been having some issues lately. Sometimes when I am speaking to people I jumble up my words or slur my words. Also sometimes I can’t think of the right word for something. And sometimes I can’t think of the word for a simple object. I told my pediatrition about this and she said I was speaking to her fine, and that it was nothing to worry about, she said I was thinking faster than I was talking. I never get head aches or pain in my brain, but I’m just worried about it. I’m kind of a hypochondriac; I have thought I’ve had like 10 different cancers. Thanks and please don’t be mean

    I've been suffering from depression for a couple years now and I feel like it's getting worse. For about a month now I've been starving myself. I drink water but when I eat I only have a small snack for the day and sometimes I'll only eat 1 or half a meal for the day. But there's a lot of days that I've gone 2 days without eating and when i try to eat more I get sick and throw it all up. I don't know whats wrong with me and I don't know who to go to about this. I don't know how to stop it all. I've been having anxiety attacks a lot. I had a seizure last month and I just want all of it to stop.

I don't know if Freddie went to hell or heaven I don't know if I'd go to hell or heaven, but there's a 50% chance I won't get to be around Freddie for eternity, at least while we are alive we can listen to Freddie, John Lennon, Bob Marley, so many great artist dude. If you die you may spend eternity with out them.

    Best answer: Many with eating disorders have a low self-image of themselves. Build up your friend. Try to understand why he has resorted to this behavior. Have a heartfelt talk with him.
    ▪ Plan carefully what to say and when to say it.
    ▪ Express clearly your concern and your desire to help him.
    ▪ Do not be surprised if his first response is defensive.
    ▪ Be a patient listener.
    Most important, become part of your friend’s efforts to get better. Encourage him to seek help! The both of you are too young to go through this alone. A caring, loving adult assistant is needed. This may upset your friend, however in the long run, he will come to love and appreciate you more as a friend.

    I have OCD, Bipolar disorder and recurring anorexia and bulimia. I am on antidepressants, antipsychotic meds and sleep medication. I think about death and suicide daily. I have an obsessive and addictive personality. I have to be careful who I get involved with or semi-attached to because I usually end up wanting to have sex with them and if they rebuff me, I am prone to nervous breakdowns or reacting violently. I have been hospitalized twice. I am lonely and have been for a very long time. My illness, obsessions and phobias have caused me to withdraw from society. I feel hopeless. I never really have wanted children because I didn't think I wanted or needed all that responsibility. But I am thirty years old and all my romantic relationships have failed and I am completely alone. I have no friends and a family that probably sees my existence as a burden. I want to love someone I know loves me back and the older I get, the more afraid I am of dying alone. Do you think having a baby would make me less miserable and maybe cure my obsessive personality?
