On my current attempt, I was able to access the website.
Thank you for calling attention to this article. I think it provides a good outline of the various factors which may inhibit healing from depression, as well as ways to counteract these factors.
I can still remember my experiences in 2007, during which I had a nervous breakdown and was hospitalized with a diagnosis of severe depression as a component of bipolar disorder. I was fearful of interacting with anyone--including my husband and my therapist.
My mind was "fuzzy" and I couldn't think of anything to say. Every stimulus in my environment was painful--even music, which I had always loved. My self-isolating was a protective mechanism for me during that time. With the help of my husband, my cognitive behavior therapy group, and my therapist, I was able to move out of my self-imposed isolation and begin to participate in things I love.
Again, thanks for sharing that article with us.
