How can I overcome feelings of depression when every single drug and therapy I am aware of have failed?
I’ve been on meds for 12 years and had no real relief. I am either riddled with anxiety or depressed. Insomnia is a nightly battle. I hate to whine, but I am at my wit’s end. I think of suicide daily (although I made the decision several years ago that I will never do it, and if I change my mind I would call for help). I am lonely and desperate. Any ideas?
I guess I failed to add one other mental issue: delusional thoughts. I can find the worst case scenario in daily issues. Most of these thoughts are related to death and health problems. Funny for a guy who doesn’t have much of a will to live.
Have you tried therapy with a psychologist? and do have actual diagnoses from a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist? I have delusional thoughts as well thats from my OCD..the intrusive thoughts i get are often just way out there and crazy. and im a hypochondriac so i know all about worrying about health problems. then of course theres the depression and anxiety etc.. anyways you do sound like your at your wits end. if you’ve been on meds before then either you arent on the right ones or you are very med resistent(your brain chemistry i mean….im like that too) You need to get help. you werent very specific on what kinds of therapy youve been involved in, so maybe if you gave more info i could tell you what other options there are.
