i originally posted this thread for some help with my depression, five minutes after posting it though, i hated myself for sounding so stupid. i tried deleting it, couldn't, so i edited it. then i asked for no replies, but of course...
i had depression for two years. i don't anymore. i just have relapses where i get very sad and stuff. i don't want to explain too much. i don't want drugs or doctors but any advice'd be nice.
you're not normal. But then I've know several people who hated pizza as well. To each his ownOriginally posted by LURCH
Have ya tried large doses of CHOCOLATE?
J/K: I hate chocolate!
Notice I said "aspiring" shrink. Haven't had a single day of med school "yet". But you're right. In reality I'd need a lot more info to make an accurate diagnosis But how do you know it was a bad one? heheOriginally posted by zoobyshoe
Incidently, Zantra, your diagnosis
was bad enough to have your
medical licence pulled in a heart
beat. You better hope Mr. Robin
Parsons doesn't stumble into this
thread and see that.
Well I'm going into medicine no matter what. I am considering neuropsych as well. But no matter what I'm going to be a doctor. That's my goal above and beyond psychiatry. Besides, if I'm really that horrible I won't make it through med school anyway, right? I'm assuming you're joking (btw, how's mom doing?), because I was really just kidding about the wellbutrin.Originally posted by zoobyshoe
Don't go into psychiatry. For two
1. You'll probably kill someone.
2. Psychiatry is a sinking ship.
It's being supplanted by neuro-
psychiatry and straightforward
You might become a therapist or
counsellor if you want. But stay
away from prescribing medication.
Because: See reason #1 above.
Now granted, I'm not a licensed shrink by any stretch, but I'm fairly certain that manic depression is a seperate illness, as listen in the DSM-IV, and is a symptom of Bipolar disorder. I did say my friend may have been bipolor- she had other symptoms besides depresssion, but I never said Gale was. If I'm wrong, then I apologize. I guess I'd better go dig up my DSM.. /sigh...Originally posted by zoobyshoe
I haden't gotten to your last
question yet. Had to go back and
reread what you said.
The reason I know it was a bad
diagnosis is because you said you
had a friend who suffered from
manic depression possibly because
of bipolar disorder.
Manic depression IS bipolar disor-
No uses the term manic depression
anymore. The current term is bipolar disorder.
Gale hasn't reported one manic
symptom so it was insane
of you to jump to the suspicion
I don't believe Mr. Robin Parsons
is a doctor but he has a mind like
a steel trap and among the other
stuff he has in there is a huge
amount of medical knowledge. Read
his post in the thread on apendicitis. Written off the top of his head.
I stand corrected. Good thing they have a school for stuff like this Or maybe gynecology......Originally posted by zoobyshoe
Manic depression is the old name
for what is now called bipolar.
DSM-IV lists Bipolar 1, BipolarII
Cyclothymic disorder (like bipolar
but not as severe) and bipolar
NOS (Not Otherwise Specified).
No Manic Depression.
