Definitely a drug I take….
Yeah started twitter like the twit that I am…. Someday I won’t have acne and maybe stick to a diet and lose this weight I gained from the drugs…. Jk probably not.
Follow me if you DARE @depressionica.
If you can call it that I guess. To normal people who have never been depressed and yes those people exist they may get sad or upset but not to the extent I do or other fellow “mentally challenged emotionally” people. Anyways, I want to reorganize my blog and maybe make it less embarrassing and actually tell people I know about it so that they can see how I ARE. but also that’s scary, I’m scary, and I write some deep dark shit. So I think I will make a twitter account since maybe I will post more often my ramblings from day to day and listen to others.
I have a good therapist now. I’ve gone through about 4 before really wonderfully connecting with this one. So don’t give up on therapists! Or doctors just keep switching if you can! And if you can’t just make a shit ton of suggestions and do your own research! It took like literally begging and threatening to die to get a good psychiatrist so keep that in mind.
One of the things that struck me in my therapy sesh today was the fact, I just want to be happy. And my therapist pointed out that Yeah it’s a desirable state but unrealistic to be happy all the time. Maybe I just meant I wanted to be OK and not melting down on a daily basis. Which is a more attainable state. So I mean I’ve had some shitty things happen to me lately and that have impacted my mood (car crash, student loans cut off, other unmentionable incidents). And instead of screaming and crying it all out, I numbed it with booze, drugs, and distractions, and buying stuff. Yeah so I’m gonna let myself scream and cry it out. Unfortunately these pangs of emotion tend to come on at the least convenient times but oh well had more embarrassing things happen. I know I won’t die from my emotions but it sure feels like it!

I’m a huge skeptic so I definitely do my research before I start taking supplements. I know for sure I need to take iron and that its recommended to take calcium if you’re a woman.
But what about for sleep? Relaxation? Depression? As a depressed nighttime sufferer I’ve taken melatonin rich works really well the first time but after that my brain decided it would have no effect. I find that zinc and magnesium actually help really well with my restless leg syndrome that’s giving me I better sleep even if I don’t sleep that much. So is nice to not have to take another prescription on top of the prescription pills I take daily.
In another article from last year’s August addition of the Scientific American, they mentioned some popular new herbal treatments for anxiety and depression. I agree with the part that states people assume that herbal medicines or natural substances bought without a prescription are much safer than synthetic medications which is totally wrong. I’ve heard of st. John’s wort being used for depression but it’s still they still fine but the studies say results are inconclusive meaning they can’t say it actually has an effect . There are also plenty of adverse reactions to St John’s wort in connection make someone feel much worse.
Another drug they mention is Kava which I’ve never heard of before. It can cause liver damage react with other medications and cause you to be sleepy. It’s become popular other alternative to relaxation instead of drinking apparently in Florida. The article and saying there still might be some chance for herbal treatments in the future but for now none of the studies are coming out positive for the common and new herbal drugs.
Could not have said it better!

There are lots and lots and lots of reasons different people cut. There are some things you should know about individuals who cut (and I’m talking about the whole, not the individual):
This is serious.
You may look at the little slices on the skin and think, did that even bleed? It’s no big deal. Just stop doing it. But cutting is a heavy indicator of what is going on in a person’s heart and mind and it deserves more than a passing glance. Just as rape victims often get told, “you’re lucky – your wounds are minor,” people who cut need everyone to understand that this is about more than the physical, visual ramifications. This is mental.
They aren’t typically suicidal.
Bringing a blade across your wrist in a horizontal format like that can cause some mega red, but it’s not an attempt at taking one’s life, so don’t instantly…

I read about Demi’s struggles in the tabloids when they first started being invasive and commenting about marks on her arms. It then went on to name some more celebrities that admitted to self harm such as Princess Diana.
I don’t currently like the way the media speculates and talk about self harm as I find it super personal myself and a tad rude to speculate…sometimes it’s not self harm but I guess that’s their job.
Please watch this great video where Demi is super open, honest and well spoken! : D
