Could I become a counsellor if I am prone to depression/anxiety myself?

A: I really wouldn''t advise you become a counsellor if you feel like this, it would be hard to emotionally separate yourself. Would you go into psychiatry? It means another degree but this way you can treat mental disorders as well, something you can''t do with counselling. Yea why not..You would be a perfect candidate for advising those who suffer with the same condition but you would have to be very positive in adviseing others because if you couldnt cope with your own condition then how could you advise others ...Im 44 now and I suffered with the same when I was younger..You know a lot of it had to do with my fears about the future and my low self esteem..Im a lot better now but thats probably because im wiser and stronger but it still effected my life.. Im still single and ive had very...

Is it wise enough to have medicine to control anxiety during pregnancy

A: Were you on any medications for the anxiety prior to getting pregnant?  If so, then I would contact the therapist and have him speak directly with your obstrician so they can work as tem members on your ''health team.'' If you were not being treated prior to your pregnancy and these are very new mood symptoms then i would contact a therapist who has expertise dealing with pregnant patients - since certain medications can not be used during pregnancy and others have to be timed to be used during certain trimesters - and see if you are a candidate for anxiety treatment.  I would not delay and youmight use your OB as a source for a list of therapists....

A: Jules   Thank you for your question.   Unfortunately, no one else would be able to make this decision for you.

Help with anxiety/panic attacks?

A: 20 Jan 2012 Hello Emma, It sounds like your doctor either doesn''t know what to do for you or just isn''t willing. I am assuming you are talking about your regular doctor? I think you should probably be seeing a psychiatrist and maybe a therapist or counselor as well. Have you considered this? They are more knowledgable and equipped to deal with these type of issues. If you are already doing that then maybe it is time for you to find another doctor. I don''t know if this helps at all but I am here for support if you need a friend. Best wishes to you. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Let me know if there is anything else I can do.

Has anyone developed or made worse anxiety or panic attacks when put on high dose prednisone?

A: 6 Feb 2012 I was prescribed prednisone many years ago for my problems with allergies. I had many adverse reactions with this drug. My heart felt as if it were coming out of my chest and I couldn''t leave my bed. I was alway feeling spaced out. I literally felt as if I were dying. I was taken off of that drug and I will never take it again. I''ve also taken Buspar for simply needing to sleep at night. Well it didn''t help me sleep. When I think about Buspar today, I know it was responsible for the start of my panic disorder. My panic was so bad I was afraid to go to sleep at night. I didn''t calm down until my doctor prescribed ativan to control my attacks. Votes:+0CommentVote upReport franklin8905 6 Feb 2012How long did the effects of the prednisone last?

Hang on there, (((Gypsy Rose))) Votes:+0CommentVote upReport pledge10 Mar 2012 Hello Gypsy Rose. I''m certain that you''ve developed Tardive Dyskineisa. Its developed when a person is on a drug for a very long time. Its the involuntary movement(s) as a muscle twitch in your mouth. When this happens the medication is stopped. This is done to stop the symptoms. Its not always successfull. You might tell your doctor for this is a serious condition. As to perscribing another drug, at the moment, your main concern (my own point of view) is to reverse the Tardive Dyskinseisa. Best...

I''ll have to give it some thought and will add it below via comments. I''m just wondering what type of drugs that you have tried in your past.
