Confession: Antidepressants are not cured me, we have created a terrible addiction

Forty-nine Caroline Ashraf for three decades was taking antidepressants. Established she was diagnosed with clinical depression, and doctors believed that drugs are the best way to beat the disease. Nonetheless, this woman even after 30 years failed to overcome psychological problems. Finally decided to try another method of treatment-participation in support groups suffering from depression. The question is whether any medication was necessary.
Caroline wants people with similar problems indicate that antidepressants are not the only way to cope with depression and are not the most effective solution
Caroline started taking antidepressants when she was only 17 years old, did not even imagine that they will use the next three decades. Has sought medical help because she could not cope with dissatisfaction and apathy. Being her mother suffered from depression, I knew the symptoms of this disease.
- Unlike my peers, I've never been a cheerful, happy and physically active, I often changed the mood. One minute I'd be hyperactive, and in the following I would lie, I was exhausted, tearful, irritable, I could not get out of bed or talk to people-said Caroline.
doctors were aware of her family history before prescribing antidepressants. They decided that they are the best for her, but she was not at all tasteful.
- taking the medication even though I felt cut off from reality and I had terrible vertigo-she added.
Ms. Ashraf is taking antidepersive and fakulettu. After graduation, six years it was not used. She became an accountant and met my wife. In 1991. when he started a new job, mood swings are resurfaced. Physician changed her therapy and recommended her to take Prozac.
- I took it for six years, but they were kontole every three months, it suited me and my ll-stabilized, which allowed me to lead a normal life. I married and had a son William who is now 17 years-she told Caroline.
however, she soon began to violently so the doctor switched her medication and prescribed seroxat. Positive effects of the new drug lasted until 2003rd when there are new problems. Caroline began to plague suicidal thoughts, and on the recommendation of a physician, returned to her Prozac therapy.
- Eight weeks while I took seroxat I had unbearable abdominal pain, headache and dizziness due to which I could not drive and go to work-she told .
Her first marriage to 2002nd collapsed (as it stands out not because of the depression). Her second husband Feri was very understanding of her disease. Finally, in December last year, stopped taking his medication and began life without pills. When the left drugs, was not put in the fully effects on the process of detoxification. She believes that her group to assist very helpful.
Due to its decades of experience Caroline wants that now people with similar problems indicate that antidepressants are not the only way to cope with depression, and the example shows that certainly are not the most effective.
 More and more often incorrect assessment DOCTOR
This 49 woman, a tax manager from *** is not an isolated case. It was just one of the many middle-class women who have had to cope with addiction to anti-depressants.
Though the shocking fact that this woman thirty years taking pills for depression, her experience is not so unusual. Number of adults accustomed to the use of antidepressants increases. NHS has announced that last year in the UK betrayed about 47 million prescriptions for this type of drug, 9 percent more than the previous one.
Among suffering the highest number of women who are affected by the epidemic of taking the pill. One in three women in one period of his life using drugs, while one in ten men opt for this kind of help to treat psychological problems.
the fairer sex getting in the forties are exposed to twice the risk of developing depression. Some stručnajci argue that the chances of increasing the pressures of modern life, motherhood and financial problems. Other eskperts point out that salvation in seeking remedies for emotional problems and lifestyle changes.
Unfortunately, it often happens that due to wrong diagnosis begins with the use of antidepressants. A large number of diseases physicians characterize as a depression. With false assessments come and inadequate remedies.
- For clinical depression is no cure, but it is only fourth of people with this diagnosis really depressed-emphasizes Mandy Saligari, director of the hospital "Charter Dtay Care."
large number of doctors prescribe antidepressants without proper evaluation, mental illnesses are very complex, but doctors often do not have proper management training. Inadequate therapy is a way to beat the disease.
thousands of women because of this practice is used inadequate therapy. Antidepresivs help them to somehow deal with the problems and continue with life, but they do not eliminate the cause of their illness.
Recent studies show that a large number of patients taking antidepressants for at least five years, a quarter of them used for 10 years or more. These drugs are unfortunately easily as the only real cure. The figures show that an increase of users are expected. While some claim that antidepressants are not addictive, many experts point out that their intake is a habit. addiction that occurs is physical or psychological causes. Over time, the body can no chemicals, and the patient begins to believe that the problems can not be overcome without. For example like Caroline a lot. An increasing number of women Reveals that had bad experiences with antidepressants for which they were occurred arrhythmias, confusion, forgetfulness and loss of libido.

Through dreams you important messages arrive - learn how to interpret them

Through dreams you important messages arrive - learn how to interpret them

No meaningless dreams though those who dream them seem trivial. It happens that such dreams to carry a very important message. Dreams are input in the human unconscious. They help him to correct his erroneous views of consciousness.

Should rejoice dreams because they contain solutions to our problems and concerns. But, getting to know their dreams and therefore the unconscious part of the personality, is not easy. It's a question of courage and personal integrity. Freud argued that each of us knows the true meaning of each dream, I just do not know know why I think he does not know. Jung wrote to each of us there is someone you do not know. The other story our way again to see us differently than we see ourselves. And when we find ourselves at an impasse, the other can help to change attitudes, to which we said San, who led us in a difficult situation.

"Language of Dreams" is not a language you understand. This is the "forgotten" language and we have to re-learn. Interpret dreams means to decipher the hidden secrets of their simbol.Ali no universal symbols. Meybe snake in different dreams the dreamer does not have the same meaning. It becomes meaningful only in the context of the whole dream as well as in the context of other symbols in the dream, living situations sliper including his other dreams, that is, the series. So ...
- If you dream of a snake, you should immediately refer to the dictionary symbols of what it means, but, in addition to the accurate description of the snake to be given a private association, what you have dreamed of a snake means YOU. So, snakes, and all other symbols no fixed meaning, but should ask yourself what you can learn from a snake in your dream. Therefore what you can compromise, it is clear that she has the wisdom and coolness exactly what you probably missing

- Then move to the general, the archetypal symbolism of snakes. Looking for parallels in fairy tales, myths and legends. It is not always necessary because the individual meanings of the symbols snakes in a dream can fully satisfy his message

- Collected material from the previous two steps is worthless if it is not put into the context of the whole dream and your life situations, including those dreams that make up this series with a dream

- If in a dream you have complex symbols, such as for example the snake with the head of the fox, it is each of them separately and then interpreted and integrated (eg a woman who dreamed of a snake with the head of the fox (the snake is in this symbolized her mother as Due to its negative attitude towards the figure of the mother).
Her subconscious is not satisfied in that the mother appears as "cold snake" has already been pointed out, and its "fox mark."
After interpreting the dream of women a while to calm down which indicated that it was not appropriate further archetypal interpretation of sleep (when dreams are interpreted by professionals)

Have great significance and pun in my dreams. Example: The woman dreams of one image - Napoleon in the distance as it passes. On the eve of a dream she had an argument with his wife and was not clear who was to blame. While working on a dream, the conclusion was that NAPOLEON is a pun in Napa ME LEON (the name of her husband). That is deciphered who was to blame for the fight.

Run the Dream Book
In contrast to the scientific interpretation of dreams, Dream Book tend towards simplification and stereotype, do not take into account the ambiguity of symbols dream always have individual meaning. Not care whether the wine dream scientist or an alcoholic, provided scientist is not an alcoholic. Let us start with a simple example: when a dream ring, dream interpretation is not enough to look at the Dream Book and Dictionary symbols and see what that symbol means. You need to find out what the feelings aroused in the ring dreamer, as the ring looks like, where it belongs, whether it gives a dreamer or he got it under any circumstances ... If we add the fact that all words must fit in with the overall atmosphere of dream and other symbols in it, in a series of dreams, it is quite clear why the interpretation of dreams by Dream Book unacceptable.

Only people who suffer from some form of depression know how hard it is to gain control over emotions and resist the urge to get close to the world of solitude.

Only people who suffer from some form of depression know how hard it is to gain control over emotions and resist the urge to get close to the world of solitude.
What is certain, is that people who are struggling with depression should not stay alone, not only because of the self-destructive tendencies, but also the fact that as soon as you are lonely, with depression becomes deeper and harder to get out of it.

The body is capable of all the physical activities, but the brain just does not give the body the signals to move.
What to do? Seek help from family and friends or for example personal trainer who will encourage the activities that you would normally work. For example, hire a personal trainer for sports ...

The headache comes from the head

The headache comes from the head

The long-term psychotherapy practice it has been observed that the headache that no organic cause usually suffer mentally overstretched and emotionally unstable people, says psychiatrist and psychotherapist.

Headache is one of the most common symptoms and problems in medicine. Psychologically speaking, it can be an expression of repressed feelings, but also the means by which we want to achieve something.
- The head can hurt because of repressed frustration and anger or as a physical expression of dim and unconscious anger. It can be a way of expressing the fear that we are not immediately felt. A good example of the people who caught a severe headache in front of important tasks, meetings, appointments. They probably paint failure, but it does not want to admit myself, so the fear is expressed indirectly - explains prof. Zoran Vojić, a psychiatrist and president of the Association of psychosomatic psychotherapy Serbia.

Dissatisfaction is detrimental
headache, he says, can cause dissatisfaction with oneself. Then she has a touch of self-punishment for failure. Many headache when something succeed or you do not show the desired release.
- One of the most important and common causes of headaches and feeling that we were Squeezed between their conflicting feelings and needs on the one hand and opportunities on the other. Narrowness of us on this occasion overwhelmed may find expression in physical pain - says our source.

Neighbor does not control
the headaches can try other people subordinate their will and to manage them. To all the celebrities that "headache" as they do not meet their requirements. Then it means blame and punishment of those who thwarted our demands and our will to resist.

If we want to be free, popularly speaking, headaches nerves, one where there is pain without organic cause, we need to seriously tackle its real causes. As a first step in that we have three typical portraits of personalities that bothers headaches, as well as tips for first aid.

People who have a pessimistic view of the world, those with low self-esteem and inferiority complexes typically suffer from frequent headaches. Problem headaches is even more pronounced if with such a person go and high moral criteria, aimed it at him any other.

Such people usually do not know how to deal with their feelings, repress them, and the accumulated internal problems and pressures manifested as frequent and strong headaches. Council : It is very important to work on raising self-esteem. When a man believes in himself, all running under load and with fear, and the fear and psychological inhibitions are more difficult problem than any job. This state of mind does not allow you to be creative, to show determination and resourcefulness. Try to become aware of the positive side of his personality. Focus of attention on their strengths and abilities. Have them safe, only so far you have not used.

Perfectionists essentially all driven out to the end because they were never happy with the result. They want more and more in all areas of life and therefore are not satisfied, emotionally unstable and pseudoprilagodljivi. They are to be accepted, act flexibly, but basically never give up their criteria and requirements. Expressed their conscience is quite rigid and hinders the realization of their desires and needs, as well as adapting to reality.
them for what is best is not acceptable, while not depart from the target than the possible complications and difficult choices they may have to make. I do not know how to distance and protect against environmental expectations. Tip : Make sure that the more you align your real opportunities with the need to be accepted. You do not need everyone to meet and do all the things that you think others expect of you. Ask yourself where you are at it all of you, what you want, what is truly important to you.

high ambitions combined with the inability to take criticism and immoderate need to gain praise and recognition necessarily gives rise to psychosomatic problems, primarily headache. However, if a man is this a psychological profile while located in a high position, in all its internal tensions grafted and real stress. Sense of responsibility associated with the real problems that these people typically exaggerate, creates internal pressure that can rezutirati acute psychosomatic disease, myocardial infarction, acute stroke, and in the worst case slowdown heart rate and loss of life. Tip : Try to express emotions in an appropriate and timely manner. Do not store response. Make sure that your anger is not directed to the innocent, and less close, but the one that you are really angry. Know that there are ways to safely channel negative emotions. Also, is not ashamed to show and one positive. If you cry, cry. There is knowledge that is crying at the right time one of naefikasnijih medication for stress and depression. Deeply repressed emotions can not disappear, but it usually comes back like a boomerang - in the form of physical pain and depression. Take care of your mental and physical health.

When a headache is a real illness
if you have any of the following symptoms, contact your doctor immediately:
• headache is not like the usual
• pain in the head accompanying disturbances in speech, movement of arms or legs, impaired balance, poor vision, confusion or memory loss
• headache unless you have fever, stiff neck, nausea or vomiting
• headache lasts more than 72 hours
• Pain can not alleviate the usual remedies that seem to help then

Relaxed and slightly modified version poses a "bridge" encourages muscle relaxation buttocks and pelvic muscles. The objective is to relax the pelvis chamber. Stay in this position from 30 to 60 seconds. The exercise finished breath, and a smooth ride back to the floor.

For this problem by using the positions "Malasana" or "garland". It is, in fact, the squatting position, with heels on the floor. "Pasasana" is a variation of this pose with a turn in a squatting position (for the better), which will help you to relax and stretch out the hose.

Healthy snacks are fattening

Healthy snacks are fattening

Try to lose weight and dropped you from eating most foods that are known to be high in fat and sugar. However, many healthy snacks of dried fruit, yogurt, and even salads, contain hidden calories that we forgot to count.

Water flavor: Do not forget that these waters contain sugar, and therefore a lot of calories (about one such water bottle has 270 calories).

Energy bars: They are a great replacement for a snack, slow release energy, as well as vitamins and minerals, sugars and fats that give them a taste, but enhance their energy value (average energy bars is 200-350 kcal).

Coffee with milk: It's beautiful and the most beautiful morning begins with it. But milk and sugar, or non-caloric space maker, can turn into a drink that has less calories as snacks.
Salads: Although made ​​from vegetables, does not mean you are automatically low in calories. Dressing of oil or cream sauce, roasted pieces of bread, ham and chunks of meat that we put into it are full of fat and sugar.

The best decisions you can make in the New Year

The best decisions you can make in the New Year

Arrival of a new year is often associated with changes in our lives. In addition to those to which we can not influence, there are also those who own, different behavior and the proper attitude, we can challenge.

Reduce the intake of refined CARBOHYDRATE

The level of sugar in the body due this fall, there is a feeling of fatigue, and all the sugar from these foods to which insulin is not able to handle turns into a fat-and usually the abdomen. Record flour and white sugar and may lead to serious disease-polycystic ovary syndrome, diabetes, or heart disease. On the other hand, well-controlled blood sugar levels, giving us plenty of energy, make us slim and healthy. Instead rafined need to use complex carbohydrates, and whole grains. They are the main source of fiber, keep our energy on filing level and contribute to our well-being. To a feeling of satisfaction is due to the secretion of serotonin, which comes from the amino acid tryptophan. Hint: For a start, to get accustomed to the taste of whole corn, mix white rice or pasta with whole grains. But even with the consumption of whole grains, do not overdo it. The U.S. Department of Agriculture points out that the consumption of cereals increased by 50 percent. Any one integrated or refined cereal grass that make up a quarter of our plates. Other carbohydrates must be saved from the fruits and vegetables that should be half of our frills.

Let's start with strength training
Despite the belief that men prefer gym, strength training is recommended and the fairer sex. Weightlifting frees women fat on the stomach, protects them from heart disease and cancer. Dame because of a lack of testosterone have less muscle mass than men, but the trainings that can make up for the lack. Exercise accelerates metabolism and promotes burning calories even after the workout. It should be noted that physical activity is a great way to combat stress. Research shows that people with high muscle mass have a lower blood pressure during tense situations. Council: Three to four times a week to lift weights. Start with lighter weight, and eventually increase the amount of weight and enhance the intensity of exercise.
