I feel wicked horrible
but I'm going to see a friend
and they are very supportive.
Hope they make you feel better, try taking some time release Vitamin C (1000g) they have a great way of lifting depressions.
Hi! I think having a good friend to talk with is helpful.
I hope you feel better soon! My friend is a writer on hub pages. Her hubs lighten up your day Many of her hubs bring sunshine in http://sunshine625.hubpages.com/_be6vjo … -To-Stress
Maybe you need to see your physician to find out if there is a medical cause for the way you are feeling.
See a doctor, please. And don't listen to the people bad mouthing antidepressants. They are lifesavers for some. Hope get better soon.
I wrote an article on natural depression supplements. If you are under the age of 18 do not take amino acids. But innositol may help. It helps with nervous depression. I would see a doctor to rule out a physical cause. htp://artist101.hubpages.com/hub/menapause-the-midlife-meltdown. I included antidepressants in this hub, among other supplements to try. i kno you aren't in meno, but i used the supplements descibed. not a dr. but they truly helped. hope it help you.
when i'm depressed, i write my feelings down and i feel a little better. going out with amazing friends who can nourish you also helps a lot. i don't know what your religion is but listening to inspirational audios and praying also can lift your spirit up.
you may also turn to comfort foods like chocolates which are clinically proven to release 'happy hormones'. i suggest you go dark though because it's healthier. but careful not to "eat your feelings".
when you have cleared your mind a little and relaxed your body, you may sit down and look into yourself, what's bothering you and look for way to avoid or solve it. i'ts always best to face the problem before it gets worse.
feel better soon!
That is very good, but try and find out the cause of your depression. Let not situation around you defeat you, dig deep and rise above it. If you are a believer or not God will help you, if you ask of Him. Cry all you want and rid yourself of that dreadful state and allow yourself to heal. Self pity do not bury yourself in, because it will hold and drag you down. Hope you'll feel better and overcome.
Thankyou I"m a believer I'll try to pray more and read bible more. I know the source, I'm still getting over a loss.
Thanks! ps. I write alot about God, do you?
It feels so good to release the feeling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You seem to express yourself well by writing, why don't you write a hub about depression? Or if that may make you feel worse, write about something that makes you happy. I don't usually write poetry here, but I have when I've been upset. Exercise is good for getting out of a funk, and loss is very hard to handle. St. John's Wort is a good herb for depression, as long as it doesn't interfere with any meds you may be on. There's always shopping . I hope you feel better.
You let it out. You are a daughter of Zion-the Comforter is with you.
I'm sorry to hear that you're depressed, but I'm happy to see that you're not hitting the Prozac. A lot of people medicate to mask the symptoms. I'm not religious, but I know that when I'm down, there's always a root cause. Cut the head off the snake, and the monster will fall. Good luck!
I agree with alexsaez1983, I'm glad you're not medicating yourself. It's all too easy these days and unfortunately almost expected. If you don't feel quite right, just pop a pill to make yourself feel better, or to make you feel nothing at all. Often the pressure to make ourselves feel better is just as bad as the depression, or maybe worse. We don't always have to feel good. It's OK to feel down sometimes, it makes us appreciate feeling good all the more. Sending you lots of hugs which always seem to help me. Know that this low feeling will pass and many good times are ahead. Take care and be well.
Sorry to hear you've been down, SGFR, and I hope you're already better!
Here are a few other tips that can help with depression that doesn't meet criteria for clinical depression:
Go outside or work outside whenever you can; sunshine usually helps, but so does looking at green growing things (this has been scientifically researched); if sunshine triggers other problems, as happens in some cases, see if you can work outside in a shaded area;
Be sure you are getting enough water to drink; mild dehydration can mask itself as depression;
Make sure you are getting the right amount of sleep (not too little, not too much) at the right time; that is, follow as consistent a schedule as possible;
Work through the "count your blessings" routine; maybe turn it around - "At least my problem is not ______" (fill in the blank); focus on being genuinely grateful for specific things;
Definitely exercise; definitely Bible study and prayer; definitely lean on friends; definitely find ways of giving back to others - through volunteering and similar activities.
Take care of yourself!
I am glad to see you trying different things. I also feel very moody when I am hungry. Also when I am tired. Be sure you are getting enough rest and relaxation. For some people stress can feel like dpression...
Another thing that helped me was to keep track of my moods for a while. A simple chart of what my mood was each day from low to normal to high. And then notes on what I ate or how I slept or if something odd happened. It was annoying but it really did help me learn about myself and how to feel better.
Have you taken a look at your diet? We are what we eat, and if you're not eating well and are malnourished you will certainly suffer all kinds of consequences, including depression.
When I went vegan I noticed a huge improvement in my energy levels and mood. You may also want to think about taking a supplement of niacin. Many people who are niacin deficient suffer depression or ADHD.
Hope you feel better soon!
Thanks for the tip!
Vegan? you mean no meat?!
I hardly feel like eating as it is.......what would I replace it with? curious.
Yes, no meat or animal products of any kind, including no dairy. If your wondering what type of protein would replace meat, I'd have to say you don't have to eat meat to get your daily dose of protein. Eating only veggies, nuts, legumes etc provides plenty of protein. Adding in superfoods like spirulina or hemp can supplement protein if you prefer a high protein diet. I have a couple hubs that detail why this diet works and how. I'd post the links, but I think that's frowned upon. There is a ton of scientific evidence that is kept hush-hush by those paid off from the meat and dairy industry. What most people don't know is that animal products contain the protein, Casein. This protein has been proven to cause cancer and heart disease. I've explained the evidence in my hubs if you're interested.
it's called mild depression...other's won't know it, but it's easy to identify...you feel like don't want to do anything...but it will soon go away...
eat some multi b vitamin- you lack lube for the amygdala brain (reptile brain )that will help you. Good luck
The best fighter of depression is exercise and eating right. Surrounds yourself with your friends and family for support. Watch one of your favorite comedies. Laughter is great for depression.
I hope you're feeling better.
I have seen quite a few people that medications have worked but many people as well that seemed to have been prescribed too much.
Whether it is physical illness, dealing with a loss, social circumstances...it is better to address this first.
I would advice to stay away from unnecessary medications particularly alcohol.
Sometimes it takes time to heal any sorrows...and speak with people that you trust.
One key to fighting depression is to learn Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
You learn to stop negative thoughts as they start. You learn to reframe your day in a more positive light allowing for something better to happen. Then you can replace these negative thoughts with something real and positive.
Research shows that if you change your thinking you change your brain chemistry for the better.
For some, this is as effective as medicine.
Try getting off sugar and see if that gets your state of mind back to where it needs to be. (Processed sugar that is - eat your fresh fruit.)
I have experienced the same, i guess its due to something that we eat or our sub concoius mind is active.
Is it possible that it's natural that humans feel depressed at times since life has so many ____ to deal with. I couldn't think of an appropriate word to place so I typed a line.
