Dear Tammy

Buy the book "Wisdom of Depression" it is actually fantastic! It talks of the Depression of the bodymind, which is INTERconnected. Depression is normal and is NOt only a chemical imbalance. We have periods of depression as a way of renewal, but major chronic depression is an illness and can be treated physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. this book addresses all of this. He even compares depression to Native shamanistic principles where one goeson a "vision quest" it is our biological response to our own vision quest where like the shamans who seek isolation, fast and dreams. When we are depressed we want to be alone, cant eat and just want to lay in bed sleeping/ Well our dreams actually serve an important purpose in our mentalhealth. In fact some neuroscientists believe this is the whole purpose for dreams. You really need to get this book and look at your depression as a period of transformation and renewal rather than a problem. Anti depressants can actually prohibit the bodymind from doing the healing work it requires, try everything before drugs.
As there is a storm before the calm, as is depression before the enlightenment.
god bless

also, I read that motivation doesn't cause action as most believe but action causes mitivation. So the point is to do something even if you don't feel like it and that, in turn, will motivate you to do more. I tried it and it seems to help. Have to keep remembering to do it though.

First of all sleep is necessary, it is our subconcious working through our mental and emotional blockages. Ask him to keep a dream journal, so that he can gain insight into why he is depressed. The medication can block the natural course of the depression or if it is a chronic depression it can help. Listen, read the book I recommend. Therapy is the best for this. Depression is telling us that we are not dealing with blocked issues or listening to our heart/soul

Depression

By John M. Grohol, Psy.D. 
Jan. 6, 2012 

Clinical depression goes by many names -- depression, "the blues," biological depression, major depression. But it all refers to the same thing: feeling sad and depressed for weeks or months on end (not just a passing blue mood), accompanied by feelings of hopelessness, lack of energy, and taking little or no pleasure in things that gave you joy in the past. A person who's depressed just "can't get moving" and feels completely unmotivated to do just about anything. Even simple things -- like getting dressed in the morning or eating -- become large obstacles.

We've compiled a library of depression resources for you to explore. We encourage you to take your time with these resources, print out things you'd like to read more carefully, and bring anything you have additional questions about to your family doctor or a mental health professional.

Depression is readily treated nowdays with modern antidepressant medications and short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy. Don't be put off by the amount of things written about depression -- because it's so common, a lot has been written about it! Read what you need, and leave the rest for another day.

Yes ask away but I won't answer unless you and Shining Light answer the same question. You both respond to old posts. Why?

James Martin: Chronic Depression is an illness usually inherited & honestly there is no cure for it. Obviously there are numerous treatments to help someone who suffers throughout their life, but medicine and therapy can only help someone with chronic depression get through the daily bumps in the road. Many people who suffer from chronic depression take their own lives through the struggle if they do not reach out for help or speak about their pain & if they have chronic depression they will most certainly end their lives chronically depressed as well. It's not a condition that you magically snap out of. Of course I am not a doctor or therapist, so this is only my opinion. I have though witnessed people who had chronic depression through their entire life and died with it.
