treatment-resistant depression isn't that common

to be diagnosed with it you need to have done at least 4 12-month trials of different SSRIs

Medication is really expensive. I was on SNRI's for awhile. A year ago I missed an appointment and never contacted them back for another. I give up on medication, they never improved my state of mind much and neither did I want to use it as some crutch, money was also an issue, I didn't want to have to depend on my parents.

i wish to get better on my own and i have been doing well enough as can be since i stopped, the cold turkey was another day in hell, not like we aren't already used to that right?. But thanks for asking, anon.

You have to try 4 different treatments.
Trying 4 different SSRIs is like trying 1 treatment 4 times.
You don't know what you're talking about.

>>26063271
SSRIs are intended to be used in conjunction with therapy. even if it's not serotonin related you will still see an effect from it

>>26063310
sorry I forget not everywhere has free public healthcare

>>26063317
holy shit it's nothing like the same treatment 4 times. SSRI is just a class of drug, they all work differently

it's like saying all antibiotics kill all bacteria
>>
>>26063396
You should probably get checked out unless you want life to suck mad dick for years.

Forgot to mention I'm a Brit so I've got free healthcare but waiting times are LONG and there are many, many more needy people than me. Quite a big factor so I really should have remembered it.

diagnosed with depression, seeing a therapist almost every week, have kinda breakdowns every now and then, get very annoyed by teenage fags "cutting" themselves with, idk, paper scissors and acting like theyre having serious problems

It's a lot more complicated than that. I'm just unsure whether the minor symptoms I'm feeling now are just temporary, and uni will be the change I 'need', or if they're not and they'll only get worse.

I will see, but I seriously doubt I'll get the motivation/time/energy to go on my own and I really don't want to worry my family by getting them to take me. I also don't want a false positive coming back and fucking me up despite not having much wrong with me.

he's psychotic because he has psychotic depression... pretty self explanatory
>>
>>26063527
Psychotic depression is a combination of major depressive disorder and psychosis. I'm not a schizo, but I guess I have a psychotic disorder which is in the same category as schizophrenia. I have psychotic episodes where I act weird and hallucinate. For example, here's how it went on Saturday for me:

>laying in bed in college dorm after having one (1) beer and suddenly super tired
>get a burst of euphoric super-energy that sends me running down the hallway and yelling people's names
>eat food off the floor
>spray febreeze in my mouth
>pester my friends on my floor to go to mcdonalds with me
>think that the lights outside are emitting some sort of "energy"
>think that I am a god who can read minds and manipulate people with the force
>eventually, it wears off and leaves me feeling suicidally depressed

This switch in my brain goes off or I notice when it starts happening and I start to think people are intently focusing on me and I start to get really paranoid and start doing movements that you would see a junkie do coupled with a deep desire to punch something or shout my lung's out or something of the sort. There's also this warm but thick fog of some kind of bad focus that starts to cover the insides of my brain.

What do I have? I think it's just common temporary brain damage

im just tired of life and don't want to live anymore

Is ADD really just a meme diagnosis? I've been struggling with studying for a year and a half now. I have no idea what to do as I can't for the life of me concentrate on studying. I've been telling myself that all these attention disorders are just made up and that I should just get on with it and just do it, but it does't work. I've been tryoing for over a year and it makes me depressed, I'm desperate and during every finals month I'm borderline suicidal.

seizures only started in the last 6 months and only diagnosed after a full blown seizure recently.
probably had 4 - 5 partial seizures before this and one since, i need a few more to really get a feel for it so i can describe it correctly.
from what i can remember they are just overwhelming emotions of all types for 20 - 30 seconds, close to a bad dream or drug trip if anything.
the spooky part is when started talking to the nurse with a normal tone of voice but no actual english words during the full blown seizure.

Diagnosed schizophrenic here, pretty mild though. Was fine for a while but I ignored the warnings about DUDE WEED LMAO and thought I was just getting the normal paranoia. Turns out it triggered my latent schizophrenia. Not that I really blame the weed, it probably would have come up later in life and I'm actually glad I had to learn how to deal with it when the stakes were low. Most of the time I can convince myself that the voices aren't real and that I'm just having a dialogue with my subconscious which has led to some pretty astounding revelations about myself, but every once in a while if I'm not alone and start hearing something I freak out a little bit.

Absolutely refuse to try and sort of meds though, I'll take my naturally fucked up brain that has gotten me into a good school and almost laid over the possibility of an even more fucked up brain and even more suicidal thoughts.

Does the feeling originate in the back of your head and spreads? Do you get similar sensations in the chest? Does it feel sort of like a wave of numbness?

If so then that might be panic attacks. I have them from time to time. I originally thought i had heart disease. Every time I got it I got even more scared and tried to calm down and stop it and that only makes it worse, in the end I had to get an ambulance cause I was half fainting, had numb hands and feet and generally thought i was gone die. Then the doctors explained that they get that all the time, people mistaking panic attacks for heart attacks. The way to stop it is to just sort of embrace it and let it go through instead of trying to stop it or calm yourself down. It can't hurt you.

>>
>>26064874
I would go to a doctor to be sure. But even that's not 100%, we don't understand brains that much and unless it's severe you gon get brushed off since they generally don't really want to do a bunch of tests for something that doesn't seem serious.

Still it might be just a mild panic attack. Think about whether you are under extra stress that could cause it. Or maybe if something triggers it (like being in public), then it's probably a mild panic attack. However it's hard to say. If you had like a brain tumor there should be more symptoms, like vision problems or something.

People (I can identify them) shouting at my unintelligibly, people trying to poison me/trap me and kill me, weird shapes that I think are creatures but then somehow I realise they are not.

You would be surprised how many non-schizophrenic people have psychotic episodes. Mood stabilisers are not for psychosis, but they can limit mania, which can end up in psychosis EASILY. Risperidone is an anti-psychotic, mostly used for schizo.

>>26063995
You need to get yourself to a doctor and then a ward, sharpish. Anti-psychotics will make your head quiet.
