Re: How To Overcome Depression?

I found your post interesting, imlisarichards. Having suffered anxiety and depression myself, I did not have the treatment you received. BUT I did have medication prescribed and saw a psychiatrist once in a while. I didn't suffer badly, but it is still there at the back of my mind.

Because depression pushes people away and really wrecks your life. I still have emotional lows, but I wouldn't commit suicide. I know, though, with severe depression, there is a much more likely event of someone ending their life. They can have therapy, they can have medication, but when those don't work, they take the devastating decision to kill themselves. It is awful and I think depression should be caught long before that stage.

Basically, if someone doesn't want to get out of bed in the morning - when before they did - that is a warning sign. If they make excuses to duck out of things, that is also a warning sign. I'd advise anyone NEVER ignore the signs in themselves or someone else. Depression must be caught early for treatment to work better.

Try to talk to her and identify any situations that have contributed to her depression. Talking is a way to release feelings and to receive some understanding. She also need to get help from a doctor or therapist.

Anxiety and Depression are really life-threatening. People don't take it seriously but these can actually lead you to suicide. I had been combating depression for many years. The suffering, the ignorance, and feeling of low self-esteem is so worse. I use to ground myself in my room for days and got totally anti-social. I was recommended Medical cannabis to cope up with my anxiety and depression. Since last year I'm better than before. It's not easy to get rid of something once you are in it. I know Drug addiction can be life-threatening. Never stop using a drug all of sudden. Your body is immune and used to getting a particular dosage of that drug so stopping it can cause major withdrawal symptoms and is very uncomfortable. That is why I didn't rely on opioids for my treatment. I read how experts appreciate medical marijuana for coping up with depression and I took that. Trust me I am much better than before. In fact back to normal. Raise your head, man up, and combat this depression.
Hi Daisy!

I read your post. You're right on drug addiction and it's great that you are recovering from drug addiction by yourself.
Still, not everyone can recover by themselves, since it's not easy to leave quickly.
Since one of my friends is addicted to drugs, I can understand how tough the situation is for anyone coping with this.

A friend of mine suggested her to try a rehab recovery center, where there were a lot of people in recovery.
Moving into a https://www.threshold-recovery.com/ after treatment makes the difference between going back to their old habits or continuing on the path of sobriety. After listening to the whole process, she went to the center and spent 6 to 7 month in recovery.
Presently, she is fine and recovering from drug addiction.

If someone needs help to recover from drug addiction, alcoholism and mental health problems, I think sober living homes or halfway house is one of the most effective options!

These two posts I agree with 100%. I cannot offer better advice.
