This is a high stress time. I' ve been diagnosed as depressed. Insomnia is really bad, to the point I dread going to bed. As soon as my head hits the pillow, my mind goes into high gear. Although I have a hard time losing weight normally, I' ve been dropping weight like you wouldn' t believe. Has anyone taken medications for problems like this, & was it effective? I finally got an appointment with the doctor this Friday. I' d appreciate recommendations from anyone. Thank you!
My recommendation is to trust your Dr.
Depression can have a whole list of symptoms, including, stressed-out, insomnia, racing thoughts, weight gain or loss, anxiety……..and a number of others.
Often a best approach is to participate in both medication therapy AND Counseling therapy. You can address the body with meds appropriate to your body. And, you can address the stress you deal with by learning new ways of thinking, planning and dealing with it.
