WallSal55 --Went to Seminar for Seas. Affective Disorder    Posted 11-13-2002 at 07:21:12       [Reply]  [No Email]
Attended this meeting last night to pick up on anything new. They recommend 1/2hr walk on sunny
day, B 12 shots or supplements as recommended by
your doc. Lexipro, Celexa, the newest SSRI's.
Setting the clock back--remember to take melatonin at bedtime, avoid shift work so as not to upset your sleep patterns. Fish oil capsules
help with depression, available at Walg.
I asked about counseling--the lady said that it
only helps after the proper medication(s) has been determined if needed. And then the counseling is for other issues/problems like
relationships, etc.

DeadCarp - nap reminder    Posted 11-13-2002 at 17:58:42       [Reply]  [No Email]

My best remedy is a good reliable nap reminder - hopefully one that keeps your arm warm and quits bouncing around after the first hour :)

He/she is a beautiful baby, with teeth already?
You don't look bad yourself.

I've battled this winter depression thing for the past several winters. Since I went to work full time, I don't have the time or energy for a walk, and the walk in the sun really did help. However, this winter I am forcing myself to write a poem every day, and even though some of my rhymes are depressing, it must do me good to vent. Because my co-workers are all wondering why I'm not pouty and blue this autumn!

I know what you are talking about. Been battling it 17 years. But the most important thing is that
he gets a start. (doesn't matter how long that
takes, a healing process should never have a time
limit put on it) Getting started is the hardest
part of anything--whether it is exercise, losing
weight, etc. He just needs support, be sure to
treat him as a person. My family was not supportive at all. They didn't always treat me well or like a person anymore, but more like an "it" or an "object"--which did not help my motivation very much. Lots of time they just didn't think I was suffering in any way at all.
Like I should do something about myself. (It's
the same as telling a diabetic to get over being
a diabetic. It's a medical illness.)
Hope your love is strong!
