Nearly 40,000 people took their own life last year in the United States, this is a stunning number of people who simply felt that there was no other option.

We don’t know what specifically is causing it, but the trend has been consistent” said Dr. Thomas Frieden

 

 

 

We can state firmly that thoughts of taking your life come from many different individual factors but the bottom line is that the thoughts appear when a person feels that there is no hope, it is seen as the only solution. Thoughts of taking of the life can also appear when stress is completely overwhelming. It is important to realize that there is hope even when the situation seems hopeless, what is important to remember is that the hopelessness is what leads to feeling suicidal. Depression is also closely related to suicide and must be watched very carefully. Are you depressed? Depression can trigger thoughts of taking your own life.

Depression linked to overeating

depression foodThose who suffer with the medical condition depression should be aware that it is linked to overeating, a University study has confirmed previous studies that depressed people eat more because it stimulates the brain pleasure center temporarily relieving the depressed condition. Mental illness can be a very debilitation condition that effects various aspects of a persons life, researchers show that depression is linked to overeating.

 

Why the depressed eat more

 

Brain research involving mental illnesses are revealing aspects of the illness that were not previously known, much of this research centers around the appetite. Researchers at the school of Behavioral and Brain Science revealed that those who are depressed may eat more because food releases pleasure hormones that help the mood, this is something that is initiated in the brain to improve the mood, the reward/overeat/ pleasure cycle may be tantamount to a food addiction.

 

What food does

 

When a depressed person eats a fatty meal as an example this releases feel good hormones from the brain, what this does is help soothe the depressive state and uplift the mood, this is a neurological process triggered by the brain to help the depressed person. This cycle can create an emotional food addiction where food is used as the remedy from a depressive state. The solution to this problem is not an ordinary diet, it is does not work.

 

Ordinary dieting does not work for those who suffer from overeating depression according to Dr. Francesca Filbey, assistant professor in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences

 

“The reason I’m interested in studying the brain’s reward system in response to food is that current treatments for obesity often do not work. Only 5 percent of those who seek interventions such as diet and exercise are successful in maintaining a healthy weight. Even in the case of gastric bypass, many still experience dependence symptoms like extreme desire to overeat and the associated feelings of guilt after surgery,” Filbey said.

 

What can you do?

 

The solution? When those suffering from food and sugar addictions related to emotional issues were put on a diet created for people with depression all stopped overeating See here Depressioin overeating

 

 

Depressed and stressed out

Stress and Depressed must be taken seriously

Stress and Depressed must be taken seriously

“I am depressed and stressed out”, it is a common complaint in our generation, there are more people using anti depressants than at any other recorded time in US medical history. One group that has seen an incredible boom in depression are college students, a study presented at the American Psychological Association found that the number of students on psychiatric medicines increased more than 10 percentage points over the last 10 years, it is important to know that “depressed and stress” can also lead to deadly consequences.

The rise in college suicides

An area for mental professionals that has been causing much concern are the rising levels of suicides in college, what may be even more alarming are the numbers of students who say they have contemplated suicide. “Suicidal crises are a common occurrence on college campuses,” says Chris Brownson, director of the University of Texas Counseling and Mental Health Center in Austin and one of the study’s researchers

According to Dr. Jerald Kay, a child psychiatrist and chair of psychiatry at Wright State University School of Medicine, we must learn to see the signs.

A lot of the young people I see don’t go to class,” he says. “They’re not able to complete assignments and you get the sense that academically they’re going down in a spiral” and often drop out of extracurricular activities as well, and spend more and more time alone.

The doctor is right but we have also seen many students who are depressed with stress and they still do well in classes, often these students snap and should be watched carefully, good grades does not mean the mental state is healthy.

Depression comes from an inner emptiness, the emptiness manifest in thoughts of giving up or quitting, the ultimate feeling of hopelessness are the thoughts of ending the life. It is very easy to go from stress to depressed and then thoughts of giving up. The overwhelming feeling of giving up is sweeping over much of the Western World. Depression in Europe and the United States are at record levels. If you are depressed and have stress listen to the body and seek help.
