Depression, Anxiety Help is Within Your Reach….do you feel a black cloud hanging over your head? Do you feel unhappy but cannot put your finger on the reason why?
Perhaps you are finding it hard to enjoy anything and other people do not seem to understand. Depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder can all make you feel like this.
A lot of people suffering from some form of depression have these feelings and the changes might be gradual. Perhaps you feel blue for no reason, maybe your weight has been creeping up, or dropping off, even though you are not consciously dieting.
These are warning signs of depression and literally millions of Americans suffer from depression without realizing it or without being able to give it a name. Depression does not just make you feel bad. It can also have serious financial and health consequences.
Our website, Natural Help Depression, has been created to confirm that you are not alone and there is definitely help out there for you. This website is owned by people who know first hand about the potentially devastating effects of depression. We are not scientists or doctors and those people often have no idea of how depression actually feels and how it can have a serious impact on life quality.
I have been battling with depression myself since I was fourteen years old and, although it still rears its head at times, I now have a quality of life I could not even envision previously. I am a good father and I have four lovely sons, who inspire me with the strength to make it through the bad times and live life to the fullest.
Before losing hope, I should say that I am perhaps a rare case. A lot of people find help from depression through such routes as pharmaceutical or natural medication, exercise routines, diet changes, and talk therapy. In addition, a lot of people only need this type of help for a short while. Every day, more is being discovered about depression and better drugs are being formulated to help.
It is very important to remember that you are certainly not alone and if you have had depression symptoms for more than a couple of weeks, you should see a professional. I would recommend a professional in the field rather than your usual doctor because they can understand the issues of depression on a deeper level and they have more experience. You might need to visit your doctor first though, so that he or she can recommend a specialist for you.
A lot of people suffering from depression find a lack of understanding from their nearest and dearest. The phrases “keep your chin up” or “smile, it might never happen” are hardly going to lift someone from depression to joy. Depression is very misunderstood and it is a real medical condition, which affects millions of people.
You do not have to suffer in silence because help is available. Every human life is unique and valuable at the same time and we all lose when we let someone slip through the cracks when they could have been helped.
If you have a loved one or a friend who seems to be more than under the weather, please try to understand how they are feeling, even if you have never suffered from depression yourself. Your depressed friend might say things they do not mean or seem to be neglecting you but these are symptoms of the illness and your friend really cannot help it.
Somebody suffering from depression will say or do nearly anything to escape from their pain and this is why they need your conviction and strength to see it through.
I am blessed to share my life with a partner who has been my rock when I was just a pebble. Even when I was not a nice person to be around, she has been by my side for twenty years now. I count my blessings every day, for this and for other small gifts. Looking at the picture as a whole, I realize that I have some of the most beautiful things life has to offer and I am a lucky man.
It is our hope that this website shows you that there is hope for you, there are tomorrows and you can make it through the depression and out the other side into the sunshine once more, as impossible as that looks right now.
Depression is nothing to do with being crazy. Rather, it is a recognized medical condition and your brain is wired slightly differently. Please remember that there is hope and you can rid yourself of depression. The answer might seem far away or like an impossible dream but it is not.
