Is it Moodiness or a Mood Disorder?
How to Spot Potential Depression or Bipolar Disorder Step aside, ADD and anxiety--mood disorders are fast becoming the most talked-about illness of the decade. From sitcom characters and celebrities to everyday adults and children, more and more people are being diagnosed with depression or bipolar disorder. Still, thousands of others continue to suffer, undiagnosed and untreated. How do you know whether your moodiness is a normal reaction to life or the sign of a serious medical disorder? Before you head for the Prozac--or endure another day of undiagnosed misery--get the facts on these often misunderstood illnesses. There are two types of mood disorders: bipolar disorder (also known as manic depression) and depression (also known as unipolar depression).
The symptoms of depression include a lack of interest in things that once brought pleasure, constant feelings of sadness and emptiness, and an inability to get things done. Bipolar disorder has all of the symptoms of depression as well as a mood swing called mania; people with bipolar disorder can cycle back and forth between the two states. Scientifically defined as a "pathologically elevated mood," mania can create feelings of euphoria, omnipotence, or hyperarousal that are caused by an imbalance of chemicals in the brain. People with mania may experience extreme exhilaration and other seemingly "good" feelings, but the mania can also manifest as agitation, scattered thoughts, and feelings of extreme emotional discomfort.
Although a proper diagnosis must be made by a trained professional, here are some clues that may help you determine if your "moodiness" is a sign of a serious illness:
Thoughts of suicide are common among those suffering from serious depression. Whether action-oriented (I'm going to get a gun and shoot myself; I'm going to take a bottle of pills with a bottle of wine) or more passive (I wish I were dead; Things would be better if I were gone), suicidal thoughts are always a sign that a person's brain chemistry is not functioning properly, and that professional help is needed immediately. Unnaturally elevated moods:
Mania can be so sneaky. When a person who has been depressed suddenly feels the cloud lift, it's natural to think that the depression has ended and that the person is finally "back to normal." But for people with bipolar disorder, this is often the first stage of an unnatural, escalating mood swing in the opposite direction.
Mania often feels so good--at first--that it's hard for people to recognize it, or acknowledge it as a serious problem. Unfortunately, feelings of euphoria or agitation can continue to intensify until the person no longer makes sense. Those who eventually experience full-blown manic episodes often end up hospitalized, but countless others who suffer from milder manic episodes (known as hypomania) often go untreated, or are treated only for depression. If you or those around you notice marked shifts in your energy, agitation, or feelings of well-being especially if they affect your sleep patterns, you may suffer from bipolar disorder. A psychiatrist or properly trained physician can diagnose your symptoms to determine whether you're just recovering from depression or experiencing the flip side of this serious illness. Be aware, too, that antidepressants can ignite dormant mania in people. For this reason, your physician should be aware that what seems a clear case of depression may actually mask the presence of bipolar disorder. Mood swings vs. moodiness:
Some people are just moody. They often react negatively to life events, or they may frequently experience bad moods, short tempers, and irritation. While these people may not be much fun to be around, they do not necessarily have a mood disorder. However, if a person's moodiness affects his or her ability to work, make friends, or function relatively normally in society, a diagnosis of a potential mood disorder is called for. Mood disorders involve exaggerated, extreme, or highly disproportionate responses to life events. A moody person may be quick to anger when someone makes a derogatory comment about him or her; a person suffering from a mood disorder may react to the same situation with suicidal thoughts. Moody people can usually be reasoned with; people with mood disorders lose insight into their own situations and often can't see that they need help. For this reason, it's important that friends and family members understand the warning signs of depression and bipolar disorder, and that they know where to turn to seek help for their loved one.
Use the following questions to help you determine whether you or someone you care about may be suffering from a bipolar-disorder mood swing:
•Have you noticed a significant change in everyday sleep patterns because you are feeling low or more happy than usual?
• Do friends, family members, or others comment on your inability to enjoy life, spend within reason, get along with others, keep a job, maintain a relationship, or stay in one place?
•Do you often wonder what the point of living is, or why nothing seems good?
Are these feelings ever experienced along with difficulty in concentrating or performing simple tasks?
•Have you ever suddenly felt a wonderful surge of confidence that allowed you to talk with strangers or meet anyone you wanted?
Have you ever lost your normal shyness and suddenly felt beautiful and unstoppable?
Have you ever made reckless sexual or financial decisions, only to wonder a few months later, Was that me?
What was I thinking?
Has this been accompanied with a significantly reduced need for sleep?
•Do you go through periods of extreme or unexplained irritability?
Do others tell you that you are often unreasonable?
Do you kick or hit things (or people) to vent your annoyance or frustration?
•Have you ever found yourself thinking (or hearing a voice inside your head telling you) such things as, You should die. You have no right to be here and you should leave. People don't like you. You're a failure and a fake. Or, I'm a genius. I'm smarter than any other person in the world. I am invincible.?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, you may want to talk to a health care professional about a possible mood disorder. Mood disorders are not personality flaws or a sign of weakness. Like diabetes, they are documented physical illnesses, and they can be effectively treated--once a correct diagnosis is made. If you or a loved one may need help, getting that diagnosis is the first step to recovering from these disorders and living a joyful, healthy, productive life. ************************************************************************ Learn more about Julie at and bipolar disorder at www.bipolarhappens.com Email: email@example.com

Depression in Long Term Care Heart Patients Often Goes Untreated
Cardiologists, other doctors and long term care staff might be missing the big picture as one survey suggests that only a third of heart disease patients with serious symptoms of depression or anxiety get any treatment. The findings are significant because psychological problems have been linked to poorer health and higher death rates in heart disease patients. Unfortunately, long term care residents and other heart patients just aren't being screened because physicians are just focused on the heart disease and don't think about other factors that could contribute to the condition.
However, only about one third of heart disease patients who report the symptoms are ever treated by a mental-health provider.
We know that heart attack survivors suffer from psychological distress twice as much as the general population and, with congestive heart failure patients, who are often residing in nursing homes, the figure is twice that…Staggering! This is appalling because research suggests that psychological problems often contribute to the onset of heart disease and worsen its progression.
It's not entirely clear how psychological distress and heart disease are connected. However, there is some speculation that psychological symptoms may contribute to blood clots or make the heart beat less efficiently. Since the overwhelming amount of long term care residents are women, it's important for staff to note that women with mild and moderate depression are 50 percent more likely to have heart attacks than are other women. It's also crucial to note that depression and anxiety are frequent responses to traumatic events, such as the life-threatening and chronically debilitating illnesses, which are often seen in long term care settings. The seriousness of these symptoms is usually proportional to their duration and depth and the degree to which they compromise the resident's life quality and/or participation in the treatment process.
Triggers for referral for a psychological evaluation include symptoms that have continued for more than two weeks or significantly impair functioning, life quality or participation in prescribed treatment programs. The role of heart doctors in detecting psychological problems in their patients who are long term care residents is a big problem. They often don't have time because of the new emphasis on quick turnaround and high productivity. That places the onus squarely on the long term care staff who see the resident every day.
One remedial protocol to identify the residents who really need help might be for nurses and other staff members to help screen residents before they meet with their cardiologists. Neglecting identification and treatment of psychological symptoms in residents with heart disease is very unfortunate because doctors now have effective tools to treat psychological problems, which might lead to a lessening of both the psychological distress and cardiac dysfunction.

You probably know the drug isotretinoin by its trade name, accutane. Accutane is a powerful drug often used to treat acne. Unlike other acne treatments, which are simply antibacterial agents, accutane actually changes the composition of the skin. Accutane causes skin to produce less oil, which almost always results in a reduction of acne. Accutane is very powerful and effective, but this comes with some very dangerous side effects that everybody should be aware of. If used or administered improperly, accutane can do more harm than good.
These are very minor compared with some of the more dramatic side effects. Accutane causes horrible birth defects if used while a mother is pregnant, and women taking accutane have to sign a contract that they are willing to undertake an abortion if they become pregnant during or directly after their use of accutane. Other problems include decreased night vision, joint pain, and disorders of the intestinal and urinary systems.
Some patients develop terrible headaches that can lead to brain aneurisms. Some patients taking accutane fall into severe depression and many have committed suicide. The actual numbers are hard to come by because the majority of accutane users are young adolescents, an age group that is always plagued by raging hormones and emotional swings. When these young people take their lives while using accutane their families do not always realize that the depression, and resulting death, was actually caused by the drug. Some people feel that drug companies should be held responsible for distributing a drug with side effects as life-threatening as the disease of depression.
If you or someone you love is using accutane and is suffering from any of these terrible side effects, please talk to a trained drug lawyer. Victims across the country are filing suit with Roche Pharmaceuticals, the makers of accutane, to gain justice for the terrible side effects accutane has unleashed. Accutane can produce pleasing aesthetic results, but at a potentially devastating cost in health risks. ga

Fighting spiritual depression
Are you discouraged?
Feeling down and out?
Wondering why you should even bother trying to live the Christian life anymore, especially since you seem such a failure?
Who hasn't felt worthless at times?
Who hasn't grown impatient with themselves and felt sick over their lack of spiritual progress?
(Luke 8:15). YOU'RE NOT ALONE! We all go through those valleys of the shadow of death. But take courage: the way must lead up again soon! "Why are you cast down, O my soul? and why are you disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise Him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God" (Ps. 42:11).
Who would encourage you to quit?
Would Christ want you to give up?
The one who DIED for you? Would God pressure you to surrender?
Too many have never realized what a vicious beast and enemy we must face. Even those who haven't rejected the devil as a superstition haven't grasped how dangerous he really is to our health and well-being. God picks up the pieces of lives that have been savagely torn and ripped apart and left for dead by sin (Isa. 49:24-25; Amos 3:12).
Satan's foaming at the mouth against our incredible human potential and wants to take us out like a sniper -- one at a time. He hates all mankind with a jealous rage (because we're created after the Godkind), but he's especially targeted the brethren (1 Pet. 5:8-11).
The Devil can take some things that are true about you and twist them, taking them out of context, and blow them all out of proportion to DESTROY your will to survive. He never stops bad-mouthing us because he's a MURDEROUS CHARACTER ASSASSIN AND LIAR! (John 8:44; Rev. 12:10). But don't let the powers of darkness overcome your will to live in the light. Don't accept Satan's depressed mind. Don't fall prey to his hopeless attitude of defeat. He has no right to condemn (Rom. 8:1,33).
King David would get discouraged, but he'd end his prayers on a positive note, showing the healing effect of God's Spirit upon our minds while we're engaged in HEARTFELT PRAYER. "I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart: wait, I say, on the LORD" (Ps. 27:13-14). David believed in God's goodness, hoped in His mercy, and waited for His sufficient grace -- whether grace to pardon or empower (2 Cor. 12:9).
God will give us grace to bear up under life's many burdens (Heb. 4:16). His Holy Spirit enables us to be graceful -- full of grace -- even in adverse circumstances. We live and learn through a variety of situations to be gracious in word and deed, attitude and action. David knew beyond any shadow of a doubt that: "The LORD will give strength to His people: the LORD will bless His people with strength" (Ps. 29:11). So "Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD"(Ps. 31:24).
Even if you've gotten carried away, your sins have taken you far from God, and Satan holds you captive (2 Tim. 2:26; 1 Cor. 5:5), remember God and He'll remember you. Not that He's ever forgotten you: "But Zion said, The LORD has forsaken me, and my Lord has forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yes, they may forget, yet will I not forget you. Behold, I've graven you upon the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me" (Isa. 49:14-16). God's love for us goes far beyond our love for Him. He proved this when Jesus' palms had stakes driven through them (Zech. 13:6).
Some have been foolishly deceived by sin and have become carelessly entangled again - trapped in a danger zone -- but as long as they don't give up they CAN overcome what has presently overcome them (Heb. 3:13; 2 Pet. 2:20). It's only those who've completely turned their backs on God, who refuse to get back up when knocked down in the ring, that will forfeit victory.
"And yet for all this (in spite of ourselves), when they be in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with them: for I am the LORD their God" (Lev. 26:44).
God promises to release, regather and restore. He'll free us from those sins that have cruelly held our time and attention, regather our spiritual senses -- since Satan's psychological warfare had left us a basket-case and scatter-brained (Luke 22:31-32; Deut. 28:66-67) -- and restore us to sanity and a right relationship with Him (where we belong), even "If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will He fetch thee"(Deut. 30:3-4). No matter how far you've strayed, God hasn't lost sight of you. "Whither shall I go from thy Spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?" (Ps. 139:7).
If you begin to cry out to God for help, even if it's only a whimper because you're so weak, He'll see and hear and respond. "The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saves such as be of a contrite spirit... none of them that trust in Him shall be desolate" (Ps. 34:18,22). "For I will not contend forever, neither will I always be wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made... I have seen his ways and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners" (Isa. 57:15-18).
God sees what trouble we've gotten into and where our relapse into sin has dangerously misled and stranded us, bringing us almost to the point of no return, but NOTHING can separate you from God's love unless you let it (Rom 8:35-39). As long as there's a spark of God's Spirit, God can renew our minds and transform our lives (Ps. 51:10). God will finish what He's started in our lives (Philip. 1:6; Isa. 66:9). Never forget that we worship a MIRACLE-WORKING GOD!
Remember the prodigal son was still distant from his father, their relationship estranged, but when he "came to himself" and headed home - even when he he was yet a great way off -- "his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him"(Luke 15:17, 20).
God knows where you're at and what direction you're headed in your heart and mind even if your actions haven't caught up yet with your attitude! God knows they will, with time. "For He remembers our frame (make-up); He remembers we are but dust" (Ps.103:14). God wants to encourage us to change, not discourage us from even trying (2 Cor. 2:7).
Constructive criticism, not destructive. Judgment with mercy. God helps but Satan hinders progress, but we CONQUER BY CONTINUING, one step at a time (1 Thes. 2:18; 2 Pet. 3:18). God gave David the Kingdom, but he had to fight for it! So do we (Matt. 11:12; I Tim. 6:12). Otherwise we'd take it for granted. Keep up the struggle (Luke 13:24). All the things you believe in are worth fighting for. Growth comes in stages. We must patiently let our trials run their course and create God's character within us (Heb. 12:11; Jas. 1:4).
Satan wants to extinguish your light (I Tim. 4:16). He hates the sacred embers of God's Spirit, light and truth we maintain and represent, as a royal priesthood (1 Pet. 2:9; John 17:17; Ex. 27:20). God doesn't kick us when we're down and out, but encourages us to GET UP AND GET OVER IT and get on with His Work (Ps. 37:24; Philip. 3:13). When your faith falters and your confidence is shaky, Christ won't snuff you out but will add more oil so we can rise and shine (Isa. 42:3). "For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to OBTAIN SALVATION... Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as you also do" (1 Thes. 5:9-11).
"For God commends His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us...For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life...by whom we have received the atonement" (Rom. 8-11).
If God can express such love for us when we weren't even trying to lead a Christian life pleasing to Him, how much more now that we're trying, however imperfectly?
Don't we suffer because we hunger and thirst for righteousness?
Brethren appreciate your holy suffering! It's working out a PURPOSE in your life that will last throughout eternity! Growing pains hurt.
We ought to love God all the more when we glimpse His mercy and patience towards us. His goodness ought to stir us to want to get closer to Him and do what we can to show how much we appreciate His tender love (Rom. 2:4; Luke 7:47). Nothing should get between our relationship with our Creator God! If God would rescue our forefathers time and again, when they cried out to Him, how much more will He save us from the Lake of Fire?
(Jude 23, 24).
God can save us out of sinful situations and restore His priesthood promise to us (Zech. 3). We can be "a brand plucked out of the fire," saved from "the furnace of affliction" (Isa. 48:10). God can forcibly remind us the hard way that He's what we really want, His fulfilling Kingdom and righteousness, not the shallow things that couldn't possibly fill the void in life (Ps. 106:15; 107:9).
We must keep uppermost in mind the meaning and purpose of life: to develop God's holy, righteous character in joyful anticipation of God's Kingdom. This will help us to confront every challenge that life affords us in this process of purification that we call conversion. We must remember: "There has no temptation taken you but such as is common [not unusual] to man: but GOD IS FAITHFUL, who will not permit you to be tempted above your tolerance level; but will provide with every temptation a way out, so that you can handle it" (1 Cor. 10:13 paraphrased).
And realize "...that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the GLORY which shall be revealed in us" (Rom. 8:18) because Christ will soon return and every practicing Christian will be made perfect. Then we'll assist our Savior in preparing the way for our Father's awesome arrival with NEW JERUSALEM!(Rev. 21:3).
God's Kingdom is closer with each day, so we should hold our heads up and not stay discouraged, but permit ourselves to BE ENCOURAGED to carry on (Isa. 35:3; Luke 21:28). All stumble, but don't wallow (Ps. 37:24). Let your attitude be; "I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD. The LORD has chastened me sore: but He has not given me over to death"(Ps. 118:17-18). Hallelujah!
God's forgiveness and Christ's cleansing power remain in effect (Isa. 18). God knows what we've been through and has gone through it with us, in the thick of it, bearing His Crown of Thorns (Isa. 63:9; Gen. 22:13; Ex. 3:2). God couldn't get much closer (Jer. 23:23). The bottom line is: have hope and not despair; faith and not fear! After all, "...it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the Kingdom" (Luke 12:32).

Fears, Anxieties, Depression, OCD, Panic Attacks And Your Stresses
What do you do when your fears, anxieties, and depression are stronger than what you can handle?
There are times that no matter what you do, your fears have the best of you. As a result, here is a brief list of techniques that a person can use to help manage their every day anxieties, stresses, and fears.
When facing a current or upcoming task that overwhelms you with a lot of anxiety, divide the task into a series of smaller steps and then complete each of the smaller tasks one at a time. Completing these smaller tasks will make the stress more manageable and increases your chances of success.
Sometimes we get stressed out when everything happens all at once. When this happens, take a deep breathe and try to find something to do for a few minutes to get your mind off of the problem. A person can get some fresh air, listen to some music, or do an activity that will give them a fresh perspective on things.
Sometimes we encounter a scary situation that gets us all upset. When encountering these events, always remember to get all of the facts of the given situation. Gathering the facts can prevent us from relying on exaggerated and fearful assumptions. By focusing on the facts, a person can rely on what is reality and what is not.
In dealing with your anxieties, learn to take it one day at a time. Instead of worrying about how you will get through the rest of the week, try to focus on today. Each day can provide us with different opportunities to learn new things and that includes learning how to deal with your problems. You never know when the answers you are looking for will come to your doorstep. We may be ninety-nine percent correct in predicting the future, but all it takes is for that one percent to make a world of difference.
At times, a person might encounter a fearful thought that may be difficult to manage. When this happens, visualize a red stop sign, which can serve as a reminder to stop thinking about that thought. Regardless of how scary the thought may be, do not dwell on it. This technique is good in dealing with obsessive and scary thoughts.
Sometimes, it helps to be able to talk to someone about our stressful situations. Talking to a trusted friend, counselor, or clergyman can not only make us feel better, but they can give you additional advice and insights on how to deal with your current problem. Managing your fears and anxieties takes practice. In time, you will become better able to deal with your stressful problems.
As a layman, I have over fifteen years of experience in dealing with fear and anxiety. At times, my fears had the best of me, however I never gave up and I was always determined to find the answers to my problems. Regardless of how difficult it may be to manage your fears and anxieties, the answers are out there if you look hard enough.

Depression, Anxiety and other phobias are part of our psychological phenomenon in the medical science. Depression is caused due to chemical imbalance in the nervous system of a person. This is concerned with psychological conditioning of the patient. On the other note, Anxiety is caused due to the imbalance in the body of a person. Anxiety is concerned with the emotional behavior of the patient.
Though Depression and Anxiety are two disorder forms of the same category, they have different symptoms. Feeling of hopelessness, negativity, lack of concentration, feeling of guilt and decrease in energy are some of the common symptoms of Depression. While, tension of day to day work, dizziness, nausea, difficulty in breathing and light headedness are few common symptoms of Anxiety.
There are many forms of Depression and Anxiety. Panic Attacks, Social Disorders, Specific Phobias are the types of Anxieties. Psychological Predisposition and Environmental Stresses are the types of Depressions. All these symptoms can cause hazardous diseases in the long run. So, you should take extra care of yourself, if you are suffering from either of these troubles.
Depression and Anxiety can not be fully cured, but can be treated for sure with the help of proper medication and therapies. The medical practitioners hold few sessions to understand the mental conditioning of the patient and suggest appropriate medical aid. Anti-Depressants, Anti-Anxiety medications and other types of medications are aimed at alleviating symptoms of Depression and Anxiety. When the treatment fails in the case of Depression, then Electroconvulsive Therapy has been proved to be successful in the treatment. Many of the Self-Help Support Groups help people in treating their problems by making them sit with others and hear the other experiences to get out of the situation. Depression and Anxiety is more common in women than in men. If one man out of ten is suffering from these problems, its one woman out of four is facing Depression or Anxiety disorders. A patient can overcome these situations only with his strong will to recover.

Anxiety and Depression are the forms of behavioral disorders that can have an adverse affect on the life of an individual. Anxiety is a type of emotional disturbance which is caused due to imbalance in the body systems of a person, while Depression is a psychological problem that is caused by chemical imbalance in the brain. In order to keep them under control, you need a proper treatment.
Unfortunately, these symptoms are often misinterpreted as signs of other illnesses or personality defects, and the real culprit--a serious mood disorder--is often misdiagnosed or brushed off. People with undiagnosed mood disorders often mistake their illness for a flaw in their character, and can spend years desperately trying to "get their acts together and lead lives like regular people" instead of seeking psychiatric evaluation for an illness. In reality, both depression and bipolar disorder are fairly easy to diagnose--once they are considered as real possibilities.
The treatment for Anxiety and Depression can be taken with the help of Medications and Psychological Therapies. Medical Sessions with psychologists and psychiatrics can be of great help to the patient. The medical practitioner usually proceeds with the apt medical aid after taking into account the exact state of mind of the patient during these sessions. Various types of medications, Anti-Depressants and Mood Stabilizers are aimed at alleviating symptoms of the concerned problems. When the treatment fails in the case of Depression, Electroconvulsive Therapy provides the necessary required treatment. Even the Self-Help Support Groups' help people in treating their psychological problems by making them sit with others and hear their experiences to get out the situation. The specialized treatment for Anxiety and Depression consists of various forms of Cognitive Behavior Therapy. This therapy is the most scientifically supported psychological treatment for Anxiety and Depression.
Cognitive Behavior Therapy combines two effective types of psychotherapy: Cognitive Therapy and Behavior Therapy. The goal of Behavior Therapy is to weaken the connections between troublesome situations and ones habitual reactions to them. And the aim of Cognitive Therapy is focused on how certain thinking patterns cause or increase emotional reactions. This is an effective form of treatment for Anxiety and Depression.
