  1. My daughter is severely depressed. Looking back, I can see it happening but was too wrapped up in other things to notice the extent of it until I saw that she had started cutting. Background: the past two years have been so hard. We've moved four times and ended up living with family for a year, which was so very stressful for us. In addition to the family stress, her peer group got weird--cliquey and distant. A boy messed with her head in a major way, and we'll. .. She is 17. So over the last year, and particularly the last six months, she stayed in her room alot. I le
  2. I happened on this book at the library while looking for something else and was caught by the title: Dyslogic Syndrome: Why Millions of Kids are "Hyper," Attention-Disordered, Learning Disabled, Depressed, Aggressive, Defiant, or Violent--and What We Can Do About It by Bernard Rimland. I have not finished it yet. Rather than say more at this point, other than that it is changing how I am thinking about a lot of things I see IRL and read on these boards, I'd like to put it out here and hope that others will read it too and then want to discuss it. And maybe it can help somebody here. Here
  3. Hello, well, I had posted a few times about my son who has been struggling with his grief over losing his father suddenly to a heart attack two and a half years ago. He has been seeing a wonderful therapist who recently recommended that I take him to see a psychiatrist for an evaluation for possible anti-anxiety medication. So..I would like for him to finish his ninth grade with a good feeling of accomplishment but he is struggling with his two online classes. He has done very little reading for the Great Books class and is falling way behind on the vocabulary and grammar drills for the
  4. I've had a Naturopath Dr. (years ago) and MD (recently) suggest that I'm low in serotonin. The ND did medical tests showing that I am low in progesterone and cortisol which are precursers to serotonin. I agree with their assessments, but it's their different RXs that have me trying to find a middle ground between the two. ND suggested homeopathics primarily and a nutritional supplement secondarily. I know now that not all NDs go the homeopathic route, but I didn't do my homework at the time. The MD is suggesting an antideppresant called cymbalta. After researching the side effects
  5. I saw the following article on the Web a few weeks ago. The article really resonated with me, so I thought that I should share it with others: It has been my experience that gifted and talented persons are more likely to experience a type of depression referred to as existential depression. Although an episode of existential depression may be precipitated in anyone by a major loss or the threat of a loss which highlights the transient nature of life, persons of higher intellectual ability are more prone to experience existential depression spontaneously. Sometimes this existential de
  6. Those of you on the College Board are aware of the struggle my middle son is having right now with depression and anxiety. I had naively hoped that by dropping AP Latin, finishing this quarter of college classes this week and getting some relief on his AP World History class, that things would be getting better. In a way, they have. My son feels relieved. However, he also has felt more free to share things with us (or has been instructed by his therapist to do so.) Well, things are worse than I imagined. It is like an onion - the more we peel back, the more we find underneath. While mee
  7. Please don't quote as this is some sensitive info and I may delete it later. I just don't know where to turn. My son is almost finished with his college applications - most were in before early action deadlines. He has recently started treatment for depression, social anxiety and some other issues. I didn't realize until today how much it has affected his school work. He is acing in his college Calc and Physics classes. However, he is struggling in his online classes, not getting things done (and telling me he is "doing fine.") Berating him will not help - he has simply shut down and
  8. Last night as I was looking for inspiration on the blogs of various board members with high school students, I came across one which I really enjoyed and I ended up following a link for her student's blog. I find that homeschool students with blogs write very well and it is always fun to see what they choose to comment on. This young person wrote a very moving blog about what she called "the invisible illnesses." Our family is all too familiar with one of those illnesses - depression. I wanted to leave a message of understanding, but sometimes our own experiences still feel too raw, so I chick
  9. We've been fighting this battle together throughout our marriage, but I'm feeling alone and worn down lately. DH suffers from chronic depression, mostly he has been able to manage it through medication and occasional therapy (therapy gets so expensive). Every now and then, though, he gets into a slump for awhile. Sometimes I can track the problem to increased stress from work or life changes, sometimes I can't put my finger on anything. Sometimes he's just forgotten to take his medication and the next few days are miserable. My husband is one of the kindest, most generous, most caring men
  10. If you have used or know someone who has used 5-HTP to treat chronic depression symptoms, how well did it work? If I am trying to wean off an SSRI would I need to wait until I was completely off it to try adding in 5-HTP? I know the two aren't good in combination, but wondered if once the SSRI was on a very low dose I could start a low dose of 5-HTP.
  11. Hi everyone, I recently joined this group and I'm not sure if there will be others out there within this forum that relate, but I need to try. I have 2 boys, ages 13 and 12. My 12 year old was born with a physical disability on his right side. Specifically this means that he used to walk on his right toes, instead of flat footed until he had surgery that mostly corrected this. He also doesn't use his right hand or arm much. He is contracted at the elbow about 40 degrees and his hand lacks any dexterity. That being said, he is a very bright and normal child. He wants to do every
  12. Add depression to the list of magnesium deficient issues. I knew magnesium deficiency caused high blood pressure, water retention and muscle tension. I think it's great to help depression. I'd go with the magnesium glycinate for absorption because the cheap magnesium like oxide isn't as good. Great article! http://www.newtreatments.org/depression
  13. If you homeschool your children, and suffer from periods of deep depression, how do you manage it? How do you make sure not to let everything slide? I have bipolar 2 and am generally pretty stable. The periods of depression are generally short lived, but man! they are intense. It's literally a "get up and put one foot in front of the other" type of thing. I mean, I DO get up. I have to. I just want to be enthusiastic for my kiddos. Generally it's not situational. If you deal with depression, how do you manage everything so that the household runs smoothly and the kids learn?
  14. Tried Saint John's Wort for months and it's not helping-two different brands. The Kira was working a little but now it's not. D3 levels are now good, we don't eat processed food, already exercise, etc-so there is not much area left to try to see if that would fix the depression! Debating trying 5-htp or SAMe (natural antidepressants) but sounds like they are inconsistent if they work or not, plus they're expensive. We are all organic, etc., so it would be great to find something natural! It's becoming a quality of life issue so antidepressants are under consideration. But isn't it
  15. You can see below what we are trying to do. I'm having a terrible year. We never get to History,Science, Art, Music. We are trying to do the basics and that is it. I'm miserable. My kids aren't behaving well or enjoying school. It is just endured. My house is falling apart and I can't seem to accomplish much of anything. We don't get through the basics every day. Yes, I suffer with depression. I'm exercising, taking vitamins, trying to make healthy eating choices, and talking with a Life Coach that is a strong Christian from my church. I've been on anti-depressants and I'm done w
  16. My DH is on antidepressant/antianxiety medication that he would like to come off soon. He has been on it almost 12 months now and really doing well. It is a mild dose. He would like to look at some natural solutions to his problem so he can wean off the anti-ds and use a more natural alternative. So can you please give me some recommendations. So far i have been told Vitamin B and Omega 3, what else?
  17. I just want to go back to sleep and not deal with it, but, alas, with 5 children 9 and under, I do have to deal with it and it is even worse to sleep until they make me get up. So, how can I motivate myself to get up on schedule so that I am not behind the eight ball? Do any of you deal with these kinds of feelings? A sense of dread that you just want to escape from by going back to sleep? I obviously cannot live this way and be productive in the home. I don't really want to discuss dealing with depression, etc. because I am already addressing that issue. However, the feeling continue
