Is PMS A Myth? This Researcher Says Yes, And That It’s Holding Women Back

  Is PMS A Myth? This Researcher Says Yes, And That It’s Holding Women Back In The Hormone Myth, Robin Stein DeLuca argues that we’ve internalized damaging beliefs about our bodies and what they’re capable of.

Depression is often shrouded in misunderstanding. Some believe it means simply being sad and unmotivated, when really, the symptoms of depression often have a way of infiltrating everything, from the smallest, most unsuspecting details of life, to the biggest, most significant aspects of life.

Unfortunately, talking about depression is not easy for most men. They have lots of trouble coming to terms with depression , even when they get treatment. One of the symptoms of clinical depression is difficulty concentrating.

5 unexpected symptoms of the menopause every woman needs to know about

  5 unexpected symptoms of the menopause every woman needs to know about So many women are wrongly prescribed antidepressants, says Dr Louise NewsonOestrogen is the main hormone that reduces during the menopause. It affects many different areas of your body – including your brain, so can cause many symptoms when its levels start to naturally fall. And these signs might occur even if you're still having periods. This time, called the perimenopause, can last for several years. It means many women won't make the connection to their hormones and end up suffering in silence.

You may think you know a lot about depression . You know people with depression can feel sad and empty much of the time, have changes in appetite or sleeping habits, be fatigued, have decreased feelings of pleasure in things that would normally bring them joy and possibly even have thoughts of

Let’s back up some, back to that one symptom of depression that no one talks about . Suicidal thoughts. Like I said earlier, no one tells you about how you might obsess over the idea of suicide when you’re depressed .

Sufferers report an overwhelming sense of negative emotion, without any clarity as to exactly what’s causing it.

But research published by Physchological Science shows that in itself is a symptom of the disease – the inability to tell the difference between which negative emotions are being felt.

The study was the first to show that people diagnosed with MDD (major depressive disorder) “experience negative emotions with less differentiation in their daily lives than healthy individuals,” meaning that common feelings of sadness, anger, guilt, disgust, shame and anxiety blur into one.

Individuals not suffering from the disorder can differentiate between feeling ashamed, angry, anxious or guilty, while those with MDD may struggle to tell those different emotions apart.

6 Warning Signs Of Stomach Cancer That Have Nothing To Do With Pain

  6 Warning Signs Of Stomach Cancer That Have Nothing To Do With Pain <p>So what should you be looking out for? These six symptoms.</p>While far from a sure sign of stomach cancer—both colitis and Crohn's disease can cause bloody stool—blood in either your poop or your vomit demands a visit to a GI doctor, Dr. Sarpel says. If the bleeding is related to stomach cancer, the blood in your stool is likely to look maroon or tarry black. ("It looks that way because it's been acted on by your digestive enzymes," she explains.) If the blood is in your vomit, it's more likely to look bright red, and it may have a coarse "coffee grounds" texture because it has been partially digested, she says.

Other symptoms are less well-known, or less talked about . Our depression may bring symptoms that we find embarrassing. However the truth is many of us share the same symptoms – we just don ’ t talk about them.

But the one symptom of depression you probably don ’ t know about, and one of the hardest ones to deal with, is loneliness. When I get severely depressed , I long for somebody to talk to, somebody who will understand and not judge me.

Despite this being a significant feature of this disorder, we do not speak about it nearly enough.

Co-author of the study Dr Emre Demiralp says, “it is difficult to improve your life without knowing whether you are sad or angry about some aspect of it. For example, imagine not having a gauge independently indicating the gasoline level of your car. It would be challenging to know when to stop for gas”.

Dr Demiralp suggests that “being specific about your negative emotions” might be good for you.

“Is it anger, shame, guilt or some other emotion? Be specific.

“This can help you circumvent it and improve your life,” he says.

According to the World Health Organisation depression is the leading cause of disability world wide, and this discovery could be a huge step in how doctors establish causation, and prescribe treatment, and how friends and family of sufferers can approach the topic.

What Does It Mean to Have OCD? These Are 5 Common Symptoms

  What Does It Mean to Have OCD? These Are 5 Common Symptoms What Does It Mean to Have OCD? These Are 5 Common SymptomsHaving obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) isn’t easy. The condition, marked by uncontrollable thoughts and behaviors, strikes about 2% of the general population—a figure that in the U.S. alone means nearly 6.5 million people. If you’ve made it past young adulthood without developing any symptoms, you’re likely in the clear.

It’s sad the symptoms of depression can drive so many friends away, because of the stigma of depression , or because they don ’ t www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/ the - symptom - of - depression - we -dont- talk - about _ us _59f837f8e4b094db8e76f83e?utm_hp_ref=mental-health.

One symptom of depression I don ’ t think is talked about enough is guilt. There are many reasons a person who is depressed might feel guilty. Here are a few of the reasons and why you shouldn’t feel guilty. 1. Feeling guilty for being alive.

Seeking treatment for mental health is one of the biggest barriers to its recovery, with the Black Dog Institute reporting that “54% of people with mental illness do not access any treatment,” and are forced to suffer in silence.

To put that into perspective, the same report also states that the “proportion of people with mental illness accessing treatment is half that of people with physical disorders”.
