I thought I was over this...depression help?0Neda2012-10-25 05:54:08
Um, okay. MedlinePlus I posted several questions on this site and on depression. MedlinePlus But I still need help. I guess I have to give a little background on my situation .... MedlinePlus MedlinePlus At first I was not sure whether or not I suffer from depression. That question is still ... but, I do not know. I think I've finally come to accept that I should be able to be happy. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I have all the symptoms: MedlinePlus MedlinePlus -Wanting to sleep all the time MedlinePlus -Feeling wanted to mourn at various times during the day (no apparent reason) MedlinePlus -Extreme stress MedlinePlus Low self-esteem MedlinePlus -Insulation. MedlinePlus - Thoughts of suicide. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I became even more depressed when I realized exactly what I was doing to myself. I was away all my loved ones ... when in fact, it was something in my life that need them most. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I became very involved with an online forum where I met my old friends. It was as if, the moment the internet was my life. It was like if the outside world is so cruel ... is so difficult to treat, why should I? MedlinePlus anymore? So I gave up. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I was really well-liked in this forum, and it seemed best friend with them than with my family and my friends from school. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus As proabbly I can tell, my isolation promoted. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus So ..... things started to get even worse. My online friends that I had been talking for months, kept going. Not connected already, and somehow just stopped talking. So, there I was ... lonely and pathetic. I realized that I had no one left. No my friends from school, and he had decided to ignore the outside world .. not my family ... and my internet friends that I had begun to count for any stictch of happiness. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus That's when I decided to try and improve. So I searched online advice and did everything that was recommended. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I tried to make me smile more, because even though I was not really happy, it felt good to have people think I was .. MedlinePlus I also began to call the few friends that I had more often. I met more friends, listen to music (happy music, sad music no darkness that had been listening before), I started running again .... MedlinePlus and stay away from the computer. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Improves. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Actually I think I did. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus For about two months ... I cried less, slept easier .... MedlinePlus I dread school so much, and I made a new friend. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I was ... a little happy. For a little while. Now I'm back to the way it was before ... and it really hurts. Not only will one day return. I notcied slowly creeping back. But this time I could not fix it. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus so do not really know how to word my question. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I guess I want to know if this is normal? Can anyone really be cured in this way .... someone can get rid of your depression for a short period of time? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus because I'm honestly very confused. I really do not know what else to do. I have only 14 ..... and I've been dealing with this for about two years. I have not told anyone yet, since I'm pretty sure my friends and family do not take too well my suicidal thoughts. MedlinePlus Just .. guhh. Help? I know this is very long, but I'd appreciate it.
Have You Ever Thought You've Suffered from Depression, Yet Avoided Getting Help?0janeile2012-10-14 22:36:55
I wonder if anyone thought to have had symptoms of depression and experienced depression before, have not admitted to anyone and received no help for it? The thing is that the cause of depression was originally a growing awareness of all the horrible things that have happened in the world in the past , and that are occurring at this time (eg , genocide and war ) . Thereafter , if something seemingly minor happen to me, I get depressed . (Eg being fired from a part-time job ) . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus This has happened to me. Sometimes I experienced severe episodes of depression that lasted for two days , and other times ( a week ) I was very happy . Overall, I do not think these periods of depression are having a negative effect on my life , and I can handle myself. Therefore, they have never admitted this to anyone or received help . Instead , I used my own strategies , such as Web browsing and listening to music to relieve depression . I've also done before drinking and smoking pot to alleviate depression , but I try to avoid this if possible , due to the negative after effects (eg hangovers , burnout ) . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I have also avoided asking for help because I 'm afraid I'll prescribe antidepressants . One of my friends was on antidepressants for a year and became a completely different person . He did not like the effects , and he removed them ( in line with the decline of his psychiatrist recommended dose ) and now , for the most part , not experience depressive symptoms . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus What is your story?

This thought is ruining my life?0math student2012-11-04 07:02:58
Hi everyone, I am 15 years old and my life is ruined by a weird thought, that feeds on me. It came about a year ago because I developed anxiety and depression from being bullied. I got help and I am completely over it, but after that my anxiety was out of control. I then developed intrusive thoughts. I developed depersonalization disorder, which scared me but I got over it. The intrusive thoughts are just plain weird and don't make sense to anyone. But I always question my thoughts. Every thought I have, wether it is waking up, or straightening my hair, getting up from the couch. I think "What should I be thinking?" Its repeated. Then it takes over, I have to block the thought out, which gives me panic attacks and makes me angry. I have started cutting myself. I am the only one in the world who thinks like this. I try to tell myself to stop, because it is doing damage, but I can't, it is still repeated in my head, over and over again. Why is it when I am not thinking about it, I feel like it is still there? I also feel like its the most important thought ever to think. I can't stop. My symptoms are: - depression - anxiety - tiredness - burning eyes - vision problems - shakiness - getting sick a lot - Insomnia I wish I could stop because I really want to live, I have so many good things a head of me and I love life. But this thought is with me ALL THE TIME. Is there any tips please? Why does it feel like the most important thought? Please give me some helpful links. Also please don't tell me to see a doctor, I have seen two and they blame my anxiety. Please help, I can't concentrate in school or work. Thanks :)
Relationship between thought, language, and creativity?0Neelam2012-11-02 00:44:23
I have college level assignment in my Psychology class (specifically on the psychology of thinking) and I just wanted some outside ideas, or thoughts. The assignment is very open-ended. We have to demonstrate the relationship between thought, language, and creativity and we can use any format we want (video, art, audio, presentation slides, etc) however we can only use TEN words at the most. I have a few ideas but I'm really not sure if they're that great. The ideas I have are: demonstrate the development of language (takes thought and creativity); demonstrate the development of an AI language (again, takes thought and creativity. My major is software engineering so this assignment may be attempting to get us to realize the connection between all three concepts especially in regards to AI development. Does anyone have any ideas? The project is due in about 6 hours and I'm struggling-once I have a solid plan it won't take long to develop the actual project though.

Straight Males, homophobes or not, read and thought?2peda 2012-10-21 19:13:04
Found in Scientific America! MedlinePlus MedlinePlus "I wish I could say I've decided to come out in my twenties more admirable reasons, such as love or the principle of the thing. But the truth is that the transition from a straight person had become more of a hassle than I thought worth. since third grade, I had spent too valuable cognitive resources inventing deceptive schemes to hide the fact that I was gay. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus In fact, my first conscious tactic to hide my homosexuality homophobic involved being extravagant. When I was eight, I realized that if I used the word "fagot" a lot and in all possible occasions expressed my disgust for gay people, others obviously I was heterosexual. But, although it sounded good in theory, was not temperamentally hostile and had trouble channeling my anger compelling fictional practice. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus You may have failed as a homophobe, but unfortunately, it happens to many people. It turns out that we may have something in common: many young men secretly harbor homophobic homosexual desires (whether they are consciously trying to deceive the world about them, as it was or not even know it exists). One of the most important lines of work in this area dates back to a 1996 article published in The Journal of Abnormal Psychology. In the empirical work, Henry Adams, Lester Wright Jr., and Bethany Lohr researchers at the University of Georgia report evidence that young men can have homophobic impulses secretly gay. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus In this study, 64 self-reported heterosexual men with a mean age of 20.3 years were divided into two groups ("non-homophobic men" and "homophobic men") on the basis of their scores on a measure of questionnaire aversion to gay men. Here, homophobia is operationally defined as the degree of "terror" experienced when placed in close quarters with a homosexual basically how comfortable or uncomfortable was the person interacting with gay people. (There is debate in the clinical literature on the semantics of this term, with the introduction of some students of other constructions such as "homonegativism" to emphasize the cognitive character of antigay stance of some people.) MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Each participant agreed to attach a penile plethysmograph to yours, too, "lower self". According to the authors, this device plethysmograph is "a mercury-in-rubber strain gauge used to measure circumferential erectile responses to sexual stimuli. Once connected, the changes in the circumference of the penis cause changes in the electrical resistance of the mercury column. "Previous research with this device (the plethsymograph not, penis-well, actually two) confirmed that significant changes in the circumference only occur during sexual stimulation and sleep. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Then, participants were placed in a private chamber and have three 4-minute segments of graphic pornography. The three video clips represented straight porn (scenes of oral sex and vaginal intercourse), lesbian porn (scenes of cunnilingus or tribadism), and gay male porn (scenes of fellatio and anal intercourse). After each randomly ordered video presentation, participants rated how sexually aroused he felt and also his degree of penile erection. Can you guess the results? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Both groups-not-homophobic and homophobic men showed significant congestion for heterosexual and lesbian porn and their subjective ratings of arousal matched their penile plethsymograph measure for these two types of video. However, as predicted, only the homophobic men showed a significant increase in penile circumference in response to gay porn: specifically, 26 percent of these homophobic men showed "moderate tumescence" (6-12 mm) to video and showed that 54 percent "definite tumescence" (over 12 mm). (In contrast, for men not homophobic, these percentages were 10 and 24 years, respectively). In addition, the homophobic men significantly underestimated their degree of sexual arousal to the gay porn ".
