Depression (Page 6)
struanrobertson02: How to cure depression, listen to Yes. I know, I can't shut up about music and the bands I like but really, I not so long ago (A few months at most) had minor depression, I say minor because It was really just me being a crybaby with jealousy, but maybe, just maybe Yes's music can cure all levels of depression, they are honestly the happiest music I've ever came across, and when I had this 'depression' Yes's Relayer and Fragile carried me through and made me happy again, within only minutes, and the first song on Relayer is like 18 minutes so theirs plenty!
Yes have a really deep emotional connection, everything about them is designed for excitement and joy. Tool or Lamb Of God are also good if you like the more hardcore, heavy emo approach more.
The only problem with this idea is that Yes are quite hard to get into for quite a few people, so starting with Fragile is a good entrance.
aawohlwend: Please always have thyroid levels checked. I have "hypo" 'thyroudism and if my levels are not correct I can go into the deepest and darkest depressions.

ozzyofsantarosa: Well I do... Rxed when I was 7 ...( Blunt head trauma)
I find working in the mental health peer field and helping others understand it's not a end all and that we can go on to have incredible lives...
I have worked in this field since 1986 ... And now ( for the last 16 ) done as my work.
ozzyofsantarosa: Suicide is a biproduct of depression... Just because one suffers from deep bouts with depression does not automatically dictate suicide... Again I have been addressing major depression all my adult life.... And I do have suicide attempts ( both for and not for attention)
Now I am lucky enough to have developed a amazing support network of both friends and professionals.
aawohlwend: I've suffered with anxiety since my 20's. I don't believe you would die from it, but if you are having panic attacks you can feel like you are dying. If you are having panic attacks the medicine Zoloft was literally a life saver for me.

champson48: Hello ivyqueen I suffer from post traumatic stress disorder and without help it can be quite debilitating I have a good psychiatrist who has been working with me for 7 years he has prescribed me a good combination of medicine and coping skills such as cognitive behaviour therapy or CBT for short it's important you confront your stress with a healthy plan.
And I know from personal experience that substance abuse is not a solution I hope this helps
Bonita29: I have major depression, i was born with it, i had a surgery with steam cells that helped me a lot, hope it helps more people .
toolsoftrust: Only one thing has ever really gotten me depressed--thinking that I've forfeited my soul. Something small would usually trigger it; an ill eye from someone, or someone being judgmental; or a negative environment; or a personal fault. Then the negative thought would progress--"It's all because God is justly judging me." And then the downward spiral.
I have found that the only way to defeat it is to nip it in the bud before it sets in, usually with words from Scripture.
