The tension of depression, anxiety, depersonalization and mood disorders in general put in a relationship is tremendous. In this video, I respond to a viewer who feels that he and his wife are no longer in love after their long battle with major depression and wants to know if there is hope that they can still fall in love again. Having gone through a very similar thought process, I felt it was appropriate to share my experience, strength and hope.

PROOF OF DEPRESSION DETECTION:
My name is Noah and, on May 18, 2011, I had a rare reaction to a vaccine called VIVITROL and, as a result, I formed a larger, agitated and depressive spiral with depersonalization. I lost 25 pounds in 4 weeks and was in panic or almost panic for 8 weeks in a row, mixed with the most painful and dark depression I have ever imagined. Immediately I could not work and I had to move with my parents, who along with many brothers and friends had to see me 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, because it was so suicidal. I was finally hospitalized. Overcoming each day seemed truly unbearable and I knew I would surely die. I have been given many tricyclics, ISRIs, mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, holistic medicines, acupuncture and even a form of shock therapy called RTMS. I just saw no improvement in my condition for a full year. It was decided that I had treatment-resistant depression and I spent almost every moment crying. Weeks after starting my last round of medications (Seroquel and Nortryptaline) as the last effort in the trench, I drew blood to detect possible hormonal imbalances and my testosterone levels returned to 200 ng / Dl and 150 ng / Dl. The average man of 25 years has 750 ng / Dl. With this discovery, for the first time I had some sort of possible explanation of why I was not improving and why I could be so sick. The symptoms of this low T are very similar to those of major depression. I started with testosterone replacement therapy soon after and I have been communicating with the world and documenting my experience with the treatment, as well as offering my vision and perspective on various mental health issues. I am lucky to say that little by little, in the last year and in the last 10 months, I have been improving and becoming more stable, something I never thought possible. My low T manifested in the form of major depression, anxiety and depersonalization / derealization for more than a year. Recovering some mental stability is nothing more than a miracle, since I was close to death for what I felt forever. I still do not consider myself totally healed, but now I am closer than ever and I intend to use what I have gone through to help or at least offer support to others in need. I was able to successfully leave my Seroquel and Pamelor.
I work all the time as part of my mental health recovery! Weight training and all types of cardio govern much of my free time!
