Do you live with depression?
Looking for a light at the end of the tunnel?
Losing someone special or major life transitions can cause you to experience depression.
Do you ever feel depressed but you don’t know why?
I’ve heard many of my clients say “I’m just depressed.”
Is “Clinical Depression” when you stop looking for the reason why you feel down, or when you stop hoping to feel better?
Is it the feeling that you are falling in a bottomless hole?
No matter what the cause, there are simple solutions for depression.
FIRST, it helps to recognize depression.
Physical AND emotional pain are sometimes the first indicators of depression.
I left depression behind years ago! I did it by recognizing it early and taking action to counter act what I knew what coming!
I tried drugging my depression just to relieve the pain!
Side effects were the reason I decided to leave psychotropics alone for medicating pain.
My doctors explanation for why psychiatric drugs worked to medicate my pain made no sense to me, so he couldn’t talk me into putting up with the side effects!
I’m very glad!
I found solutions to my pain but they didn’t come in a pill bottle!
Do you feel comfortable drugging your pain OR your depression?
It’s certainly a personal decision to drug your symptoms, but you should know what you are risking.
The drug inserts you get, are not nearly so alarming as the drug information that is available to your physician.
The side effects of anti depressant drugs are worrisome to say the least.
For the aging patient with compromised health, they could be deadly.
Pain medication increase your risk of heart failure and interfere with your healing process.
They have their place, but they are potentially very harmful!
It is best to give your attention to natural therapies, and consistent basic self care before risking these drugs.
Three side effects you should be very aware of while drugging depression or pain with psychotropic medication:
- INCREASE in moody-dark behavior.
- Dizzy spells shortly after medicating.(Devastating falls can be life altering.)
- Patients complained of thick, hard to expel mucous only days after starting these drugs.
Sometimes the trouble these drugs are causing are chalked up as part of some other disease process.
Let me tell you about a chronic lunger I used to care for.
I took care of a patient for many years who was drowning in depression.
Her business partner had left her with a debt what was eating up her entire retirement income.
“It is my responsibility”, she said.
Ka iwi was living on noodles, hotdogs, and coffee. She couldn’t breathe, and she couldn’t afford her electric bill if she used her home oxygen machine.
She was extremely hard to deal with, and was so combative that she probably only heard half of what I said my first visit to her home.
I bluntly told her that she wouldn’t last long living like that, and she better do something to change it.
She confided in me and told me the whole story. I encouraged her to swallow her pride and humble herself to bankruptcy if that is what it took.
“After all, you won’t live long enough to pay that debt at this rate, anyway”, I said.
“What do you want to do with the time you have left?”
“Do you have any other passions that might be worth living for?”
“Do you WANT to live?”
(If you think Ka iwi is better off dead than walking away from debt that was killing her, then we will have to agree to disagree!)
Ka iwi never told me how she resolved her financial issues, but I watched her regain her spark almost overnight.
She bought several ukuleles and now teaches the ancient Hawaiian culture to kids in her community.
She is passionate about life again.
The kids are blessed to have her in their lives, passing along what her elders taught to her.
The drugs made it MUCH harder to breathe and she didn’t need to drug her depression if she shared her passion for ukulele!
