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.

Hi. I agree with you. You can overcome the depression, not cure it per say but learn how to deal with it. The "cures" are not the same for every single person, it is so individualized. Personally, I have to take my meds everyday, though they have been lowered, and I do see my counselor twice a month for a 1/2 hour each session. Just someone to touch base with.

I am so glad for you that you can manage it. Stay in touch with the team. You input to message will be valued.

I love SparkPeople

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

Igniteme I wish only the best for you. I hope your life will some day be as good as mine. Yea I found a great therapist only because with the Veterans medical has one of the best because many of our vets come home broken and they have some of the best therapist to help as much as possible. I live about 20 miles from Grundy Va it is a beautiful state. Stay on the search do not give up I know some times there is no hope but you are stronger then you think. God Bless and good luck. I am here any time you want to write..

KLILLY20 So happy for you! Hopefully the 'living happily ever after' will happen for me, as well.
I lived in VA and you are right, they do take mental illness seriously in that state.
In OK it's not that way.
I have yet to find a therapist.
Thank goodness I learned some coping skills while I lived in VA!
STILL, I will continue to look for a therapist until I find one.
In OK they are backwards about a lot of health issues. They don't recognize fibro myalgia, either.
?
I am here and I will continue to cope.

I do believe depression is passed down from generations to generations after seeing my own family suffer from depression as far back as my great grand parents. Yea there is medical help but not alone. With therapy and willing to seek help

KLILLY20, emoticon . We each deal with it in our own way. There are many forms of depression. I am BiPolar and my depression stems from this. It sneaks up and takes over my life, without me even realizing it. Next I am in a pit trying to crawl out.
I have had a lot of therapy, but they have never come to the root of this problem. It is a part of me, always has been and alway will be. I have adjusted to me life.

Depression is the impression left by fear. Be willing to fight the fear. Conquer it with love.

Hello there, so you cured that "illness" of yours, which I guess genetic now based on what you say. Or maybe you took your life seriously and found your happiness?

Sure, there's clinical depression, and there are people like that.
But under that flag thousand times more people popping pills every day.

My family has face depression most of our lives. That at one time was just a problem that you faced alone. With so many treatments and group meetings it is some thing you DO NOT have to face alone. Depression does not mean you are crazy put it in your mind you are not the only one and there is help. I started treatments over 10 years and I am dealing with it better than I ever had.But I still have my bad days and good days. For years I let depression control my life instead of controlling it. After 3 marriages that failed I tough it was about time to beat this darn thing one way or other. Thank god I am a vet and I had the VA to help me fight this thing. They have helped me so much. Since then I have married a beautiful red head that understands the illness since she has suffered as well. My life has finally turned around I fill like a kid with no stress no worries. I am the happiest I have ever been in my whole life. I am 54 and looking forward to the rest of my life. I went for help and took this illness seriously and got help and determination to at least control it instead of it controlling me.
