100% agreed.

As a person who knows about depression: it IS treatable. I'd advise anyone seek treatment: and doesn't give up.

Re: Depression

Depression comes when we think negatively for extended periods and lose interest in many things. We lose interest in those things once we enjoy them and don’t want to talk to anyone. These are symptoms of depression. You can deal with depression by practicing meditation in the morning. And believe me, and you will observe an effect on your mental health after several days.

Re: Depression

The thing is with depression the person can lack motivation to alleviate it. It isn't "Oh I feel a bit down today.": it can be much more severe than that. Deep depression can require psychiatric treatment. And the sufferer may not co-operate. And when they are told to meditate and the whatnot, they won't: because they see no point. Depression is tricky to treat in that regard. The sufferer has to WANT to get better. But being so down, it is impossible to meditate or take pills. There is just no point. Thus, depression can lead to suicide, no matter what good advice they are given.

Also, people can confuse the person who has depression as not liking people or being stand-offish. Neither of which are true: depression isn't about what they think about other people. It is about what they are feeling. It is like shyness: they shy person won't look into others eyes out of fear, rather than being snobbish or cold and indifferent.

Yes, there is good advice out there but it won't always be taken.

Re: Depression

Depression CAN be treated but it can take many years and be an uphill struggle.

Therapy does include diet/exercise/social interactions/medication but it takes time. It's like a plaster doesn't help a person whose leg has been amputated.

Therapy - however - DOES help but again it can take years. There has to be a level of wanting to get better. You can't just force someone with depression into therapy. They have to WANT to get better.

If it feels wrong I'd advise anyone see their doctor. But don't be fobbed off with a few pills: if you really want treatment you may have to pay privately. This is because mental health treatments cost the government money and they are very strict about where they spend their money.

If you've got money, I'd advise private mental health treatment.

I have suffered from depression for many years. I find it hard to talk to people about it, I have seen many Health Specialists over the years, but unless you have suffered yourself I don't think you're able to understand the way depression eats away at your brain. Does anyone else out there feel te same or have an opinion. Love to hear it!
One of my close friends went into depression after he was left incapacitated after an open heart surgery. He was told to rest totally and couldn't do everyday activities like normal people.This started taking a toll on his mental health. He was taken to several therapists whose treatment methods only made the situation worse for him , his memory became extremely weak and he would not eat much and would isolate himself. Finally a few months back he met a good therapist who helped him overcome his anxiety and depression issues. During his treatment period, we would make sure to be with him and made him read mental health blogs at this page called ' your mental health pal' if I remember correctly and experiences posted on mental health forums which gave him hope. He is doing well now.
