Listen to This if You ’ve Ever Been Depressed (or Know Someone Who Has)

 Depression is an inconsiderate illness. It doesn’t care whether you have nothing going on or a lot going on. It will strike whenever it feels like it. Depression doesn’t care if you have a home filled with people, family obligations, or even a podcast to record. If this symptom of mental illness wants out, it’s coming out. In this episode of A Bipolar, a Schizophrenic, and a Podcast, our hosts attempt to record an episode, but Gabe breaks down and confides to Michelle that he isn’t doing well. The recorder was running and Gabe’s attempt at faking it until he makes it backfired. However, a vulnerable and honest look at depression resulted. Listen in to find out what Gabe is like depressed and how Michelle rises to the occasion to support her co-worker and friend.   SUBSCRIBE &REVIEW           “I don’t want people to know when I’m depressed.” – Gabe Howard   Highlights From ‘Depressed’ Episode [0:30] Michelle helps Gabe with his depression.

If you experience depression, you will typically be prescribed an antidepressant, an SSRI or other agent, and have to endure the common side-effects such as weight gain, aggression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, and erectile dysfunction. If you consult a psychologist or counselor, the underlying psychological underpinnings (if any) are explored, strategies devised to cope. But there will almost never be talk about your diet, nutritional deficiencies that amplify dark moods, or the microbiome. Yet there are very powerful strategies available that have potential to substantially lift mood. Such solutions won’t, of course...

 Those of us with mental illness are asked many questions about our feelings. For a lot of us, the most difficult one to answer is, “Are you happy?” It’s a difficult question to answer because happiness isn’t an easily defined concept. Most people assume that in order to be in recovery from mental illness a person must be happy.

CONCLUSIONS: The relationship between schizophrenia liability and anxiety disorders is not restricted to psychopathology in adolescence but is present in adulthood and specifically linked to generalised anxiety disorder and panic disorder. We suggest that the association between schizophrenia liability and hypomanic/manic episodes found in clinical samples may not be due to bias.Declarations of interestNone.

In this episode, she describes everything she experienced and how it made her feel. For many people living with mental illness, being committed to a psychiatric hospital is one of our deepest fears.

  Amy Gamble’s most surreal moment was when she walked into Olympic Stadium in Seoul, Korea, in 1988. In the years that followed, her bipolar disorder led her on a strange journey that included being paranoid that her family was trying to poison her, that she owned a cabin on a mountain in Montana (and how breaking into it led to a stint in jail), and finally to the path of recovery. From there, she has gone on to become an author and outspoken advocate for the mentally ill, speaking to audiences of all sorts, from high school students to the elderly. Subscribe to Our Show!
