Jul 24, 2016 · Depression worse in evening? in Mental Health

Thank you for your reply, I know I need to get out at least once a day. My grandson is going to start taking me somewhere where it is flat and I can walk. I live on the Oregon coast so at least heat is not an issue, rain is but it’s our drier season. I would love to find a support group, unfortunately there is none anywhere near me.

Do you mean you self meditate? I did mediation many years ago and maybe that’s an idea to try again. I think I’ll try that for the next week and see if that helps. Thank you for your suggestion.

Right now I haven’t found anything that works. I’ve always read a lot in the past and I’m trying to do that again. Before the heart surgery I tried to stay busy in the evening, but now by the evening I am so tired and hurt so much that I am just sitting in my recliner.

I totally understand, for years I got up at 5 am to get to work on time and since my retirement I sleep later. Before the heart surgery, I made myself get up by 8am but now I’m sleeping till 9:30 am and later. I will work on that after I feel a little better.

Thank you, Dawn. I have heard of using biofeedback for anxiety, I have never seen it used for depression. I would love to try it, however, I live in a very small town and we have very limited medical facilities. How often did you have to go to the training, I get all my medical care in a large town over the mountains but it is anywhere from 1 1/2 hours To 2 hours travel time one way. I will look into this and see if anywhere near here offers biofeedback. Again, thank you .

How do you self medicate? What do you use to self medicate?

Before the surgery I tried to stay busy in the evening. Now by evening I’m so tired and hurting that I haven’t found anything that helps. I have always read a lot so I’m trying to read in the evening. In the past I used to cross stitch but I just haven’t felt like doing that in months.

I have Major Depression, recurrent. I take Prozac for my depression, I’ve tried several others but Prozac works best for me. I also take Effexor, low dose, to help cope with the hot flashes and other side effects of the drug I’m on to try to prevent a return of breast cancer. Recently I have found that my depression gets worse in the evening, I hate to see the evening come aound. Does anyone else experience this and if so how do you cope? Right now my depression is a little worse but I think it’s due to having had open heart surgery 7 weeks ago.
