How do you cure depression? Have you ever been depressed?
Happiness is all i see now I never thought that I will live on earth before the year runs out. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (HIV) for the past 3 years now; I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this blessed day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how DR Camala helped someone in curing his HIV disease, quickly I copied his email which is email@example.com just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) PHONE/WHATS APP : +2349055637784
first thing to do is to talk to your docor , let them counsel you or refer you to someone for counseling or a phsyciatrist. Search online for depression and its symptons and forums or other places for help. Start excercising and using ur thinking more of other things and activicties plus dont stay idle for a long time.
Please Dont self medicate with anti depression drugs.
Don't talk to any stranger oh! go see a psychiatrist doctor at yaba, Luth or any private hospital that offers specialist services. Open up to the Doctor, take your medication religiously. no miss one day! Go for therapy classes weekly. Depression will not go away into a couple of weeks. It takes time, you did not get depressed in one day either. Exercise will help but not cure.
All the best.
~Am no Therapist & cant give you any advice but Here's a very Insightful thread i came across on here,might help reading about other people's experiences & know you're not alone!
Many People Are Suffering In Silence. It's Called Depression! Lets Talk About It
Depression is the result of imbalance in the overall energy field of the individual. Because this imbalance is not perceptible except by the sufferer, many do not appreciate the wieght. Drugs will help lift you up because it creates an euphoria of a balance, the sufferer momentorily feels better. But after the effect is gone, the depression comes back simply because the energy is yet to be properly balanced.
Imbalance in energy field can be caused by past life pressures, anger, childhood experiences, disaapointments, loss of loved ones which lead to disruption in the energy fields. Depression is one of the consequencies or results. Drugs attach what has manifested as results but not the causes.
My advise is that you seek out an Energy Therapist who will help balance your energy field and the depression will go. I gurrantee you that.
A direct Therapy-
If you like, a simple exercise to do is to tap (eitherside of) of your collarbone with your fingers (2 or 3 of them together) several times while saying "I forgive myself, even though I have this depression". Take three deep breaths in and out while doing the tapping.
Try this and post your reaction. or call me on 08027759667 or 08037227334. I will guide you more if you join our GIET Club where we advise members on how to manage psychological and physical problems with simple energy therapy methods.
Seun seems to be a bit on edge these days, i always knew him to use moderate language.
Anyhow, if the poster is talking ordinary feelings of depression i.e. unhappiness, he should avoid the reasons for his issues if he can and look for joyful things to distract his attention.
But if he is talking clinical depression, it's a whole different ball game, that is a serious illness that can kill.
First of all he needs to see a doctor, any doctor and tell all his issues and symptoms, usually lack of appetite, zero self esteem, crying all the time, feeling unloved, lack of interest in things around him and in extreme cases, suicidal thoughts. He'll probably find himself being involved in some irrational acts that normally he would never do, just to get high.
If you are given medicine please use them regularly. And if heartbreak is the reason for your wahala try to get rid of whatever reminds you of the perpetrator.
Wish u well.
depression could be really bad. There are different options available depending on what kind of depressive disorder. the patient could try anti depressant drugs like tricyclic antidepressants, monoamine oxidase inhibitors, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors,or atypical antidepressants. If these drugs doesn't work, it means the patient is experiencing a serious bipolar disorder and lithium drugs are the only option available. For the folks that don't enjoy swallowing pills, there is the electroconvulsive therapy and psychosurgery/lobotomy. If your all about ethics, the ECT shocks would really not be for you cause itz use is effective but questionable. then i would tell you that you gotta try something other than biomedical therapy such as cognitive therapy, group therapy or even psychoanalysis/psychodynamic therapies.
You are right taking anti depressants can cause more harm than good, my friend had depression and when her Gp prescribed pills to her, which alot of medical advisers in the uk would tell you is not alway the best way, she became better initially , but then felt unable to function without them. She heard on a Tv show called trisha that exercise is one of the best cure for depression because it releases endophines or something ,and unclogs the mind. She started running 2miles daily and is better for it.
Have you ever experienced depression or are you just spouting bullshit? I told you it's not about feeling sad. It can really affect every aspect of your life. You can lose all your friends, etc. All because you refuse to take a pill.
In addition, almost all anti-depression pills are not addictive. What you said above is like saying that someone with rheumatic should not use aspirin or else she may get used to it and feel she can't live with it. The truth is that "duh, she can't and it's a reality not a feeling!". It's like saying that someone in Africa should not use pills when down with malaria. The truth is that you have no choice.
People think the mind is like a computer that is controlled entirely by thoughts, but in reality it's also controlled by chemicals and sometimes those chemicals can go out of balance leading to painful debilitating conditions and depression just happens to be the most common. Even the so-called "demon-possessed" mad people respond to simple pills.
taking anti-depression pills will certainly cause more harm than good on the long run. addiction to the pills will make you feel than you can never be happy without taking it.
there are easier ways of curing it,
first of all, dont call yourself "depressed" and dont see yourself as being depressed.
secondly, recall those things that used to make you happy and try to do them again if you can but if not, just relish those moments.
thirdly, this may sound silly but you can write few good statements and start declaring that you are happy. doing this consistently will make you feel better and then happiness sets in.
lastly, once you have that happiness, no matter how little, dont let it go. do whatever you can to keep a good state of mind eg reading motivational books, talking to friends, e.t.c
the picturing power of the mind, as you must have heard several times is the easiest, simplest and cheapest way to get yourself out of any seemingly difficult situation. try as much as possible to forget those things that are getting you depressed and move on with your life. you are not the first person to be in this state and will definitely not be the last but remember, there is always a bright light at the end of the tunnel
Well, I know someone who takes anti-depression pills and they work. So meet with a psychiatrist. Real depression is more than just "feeling sad". Also there's a type that's chronic but not disabling - you feel bad all the time, but you are still able to execute your duties, so you just keep persevering instead of seeing a doctor.
I hope this is gonna be of some help to you.
If you're feeling down, the worst thing you can do, is think about how you are feeling. The first thing you have to do is stop thinking about you. The second is to get your body in motion. The third is to do a selfless act. Let's get started shall we?
I feel, most depressing thoughts start with "I feel" follow by tired, or lazy, or depressed, snap out of it by doing something. The easiest thing to do, and the easiest way to stop thinking about how you feel, is go for a walk. Doesn't matter rain or shine, 20 minutes later, you're going to feel very different.
Same thing if you suddenly jump to your feet and do 25 jumping jacks. Your heart will be pounding, your breathing will be heavy, you'll have flushed all sorts of toxins out of you body and released all sorts of good hormones.
Our blood is moved around our bodies by a circulatory system. But most of the fluid in our bodies is this yellowish stuff called the endocrine system. It's in charge of moving around all the hormones that get released into our bodies. Ones that make us feel bad, or great.
Without exercise all that gunk just sits in there. That's why we feel good after exercise. We've essentially washed away the bad stuff. Trust me, you might be grumbling and cursing me for the first 10 minutes, but after walking for 15 you'll feel pretty good. Once you hit the 20 minute mark, you'll feel like walking for hours.
See you're feeling better already. The first step to beating depression, is to get into motion. You'll find that your emotion, will always follow in step with your motion. Simply get into action, even if it's just bouncing a ball for 10 minutes, and you'll suddenly a whole lot better.
