Severe Depression-reaching out

Postby philsbrain » Fri Oct 27, 2017 7:43 pm

Hello, I am philsbrain and I have had severe, treatment resistant depression for decades. I am helped by contact with other depressed people. Also, it helps me to try and help others. I am a good listener and have big ears. Compassion is my passion. I am also interested in New meds, experimental treatments, any ideas? Depression can be so hard so I hope for the well being of others, anything I can do. In the face of relentless negative thoughts, I tell myself: these are symptoms, not facts. Everything goes in cycles. Such terrible pain! But try (it's hard) to Keep up hope.

I feel your pain. I really do. I have suffered from depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember. I have tried so many medications, therapies, etc... but never feel like I am living a normal, happy life. From the outside looking in, I have a wonderful life, but my brain makes my life look bleak. I am so tired.

One of the ways I combat my depression is through writing. Do you know about WattPad or Episode?

this is me in a nutshell. I think I know the answers, just am too afraid of the anxiety and associated feelings to facilitate them

There are several new treatment coming up for depresion, mainly ketamine nasal spray and 30 plus new drugs are undergoing clinical trial in the year 2018. Serotonin reuptake inhibitors or SNRIS are no longer considered silver bullets for depresion, besides treatment failure with these drugs were about fifty to sixty percentage. vortioxetine and brexperizol are two new interesting medication available for depresion, brexperizol or rexulti is approved for an ad on therapy with AD and vortioxetine is as good as SSRi in treating depresion .

I have had treatment-resistant depression and anxiety for most of my life (I am 42). Someone told me about a new treatment that pretty much cures depression AND IT WORKS! Ketamine Infusions! I can honestly say that my depression is gone!....Don't believe me? Do some research on Ketamine for treating depression! I'm back in school (made deans list) and I'm going to apply to medical school!! I love life!
