Re: Any tips?

Do yoga or meditation. That actually helps you instill positivity inside you. It will calm you down and make you more productive. Also, another way could be to get yourself an emotional support animal. It actually helps. Good health.

Re: Can u be depressed...when nothing is wrong?

To answer that, you must have answers to some of the questions that will help you prove whether it is a passing phase or you really have clinical depression. Are you irritated for no reason? Do you feel sad, tearful, hopeless all the time? Are you not sleeping enough? Has your sleep patterns changed...

Re: Anxiety and Depression Affecting Your Relationships

That actually can ruin your relationship if you will not treat it right. You can do one thing, you can get a pet or something, I have heard those can save a relationship like anything. Also, the amount of love we give to our pets these days, is equal to that of babies, so like the babies save marria...

Re: 10 Ways to Help Someone with Depression

I’ll like to add one more. Having a pet is a brilliant option to manage depression. Animals have that relaxing vibe about them. Like I don’t know if you’ve observed or not, animals are great stress busters. When you spend time with them, it’s always a happy time. Depression patients are often lonely...

Re: Cheating, Depression and Cymbalta - Any Advice?

It is important to continue taking this medication as prescribed even if you feel well. Do not stop taking this medication without consulting your doctor. As some conditions may become worse when this drug is suddenly stopped. Consult your doctor for the same. You can also tell her if she can have a...

Re: I really need help

Hi Laura, I hear you and I can relate to you because I am suffering from depression too. The moment I feel I am drowning in the pool of sadness and anxiety, I always try and talk it out. I talk to my mother about it. Though in your case it looks like your husband did not take you seriously. But some...

Re: I need direction.

I can totally relate to your condition. Not, that I have experienced anything like that. But, my little sister went through a similar experience. However, in her case, nothing was working out. But, when we shifted to combination therapy using CBT, medications and animal assistance. Her condition imp...

Re: my mom has depression and I need help

I feel sorry for your mom’s condition. As you have said that your mom isn’t ready to take your advice for improving her condition, have someone who can do that for you, maybe your brother or father. Make her realize that depression is not something that can kill anyone and it is treatable if she fol...

Re: I feel so pressured

It’s sad to know that you’re going through this. I think you just need an escape. Do you have a pet? I am asking this because animals have a very comforting vibe. So it can help you in getting a stable mental space. Naturally, when you spend time with your pet, it will make you feel less lonely and ...

I feel bad that you had to go through this phase. When I was depressed I had my dog to take care of me. He was literally there to cheer me up and I realized that there is no point in thinking too much about useless things in life. I was like just look at him..he doesn’t want anything from me but sti...

Re: People who recovered: How did you do it?

Hey hi, sorry I might not be the one with ideal answer. I am suffering from the same devil's haunting. A friend of mine who though had it before has suggested me to get a pet, emotional bearing or support animal, I am not sure what he was referring to, but he was suggesting that I should get a pet.

Re: Depression and loneliness

It’s great to know that your dogs keep you in a good headspace. Depression can be pretty challenging to handle. Well, which breed are they? I personally think that you can get your registered as an emotional support animal. Through that, you will have the legal right to keep them with you and even f...
