Good read...Thank you for sharing it!

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

On my current attempt, I was able to access the website. emoticon

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.

Lynne

Thank you. Isolation is not my friend either.

I found this article:

http://www.webmd.com/ahrq/depression-tra
ps-and-pitfalls?ecd=wnl_dep_061413&ctr
=wnl-dep-061413_ld-stry&mb=

to be very helpful. You know, when I feel isolated or alone is the worst time for me. I make excuses to make myslef more isolated and alone--like not going to the gym--not taking part in activities with my husband and friends. This article reminds me that isolation is not the answer!

do you have a go to article that might help the rest of us??
