  1. Where to get help for depression

    Here is a good, informative introductory lecture on depression. http://www.openculture.com/2014/08/stanfords-robert-sapolsky-demystifies-depression.html
  2. Where to get help for depression

    " takes some trial and error with different drugs to find the best one. " Yes, I have known about these things for years. But after watching this lecture on the OpenCulture website I know that the part about psychomotor retardation hits the nail on the head with me. I am psychologically and intellectually capable of learning about and addressing what I need to do without having to go through trying various medications and trying to communicate with someone who knows nothing about me.
  3. Where to get help for depression

    I just found a good, informative link to a course by a Stanford university professor "Psychomotor retardation - everything is exhausting to do, to think, to move. Getting going is unbelievably hard. At a chemical level this likely has a lot to do with insufficient dopamine. Dopamine isn't so much the reward chemical as it is the chemical that motivates you to take an action that will lead to a reward. Doubt that the reward will happen and you get no dopamine." https://www.robertsapolskyrocks.com/depression.html
  4. Where to get help for depression

    The thing that is really debilitating and makes me completely unable to function normally is that I can sleep for only a couple of hours and then wake up and can't sleep again for 2,3 or 4 hours and I always feel completely drained of energy.
  5. Where to get help for depression

    I understand what you are saying because I have heard/ read it for years. But my main concern first is monetary cost. I tried a medication for a while about 8 years ago ( I can't remember which) and it made me feel worse

  7. I have finally accepted the fact that I have been experiencing major depression for many years and it is completely debilitating and continues to ruin my life. Does anyone know of a specific hospital or doctor to consult? I have limited Thai inpatient Insurance coverage. Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
