I don't know if that is all really depression. Certainly the negative thinking can be a symptom of depression. But it could also be an issue of being in a negative mindset, which a therapist could help you break through. Believe me, I know what you are saying. I have been in that situation too many ...

People who are Loved are Not Cursed

People who can love are not cursed. If you experience love from even the smallest of animals or plant, If you experience even a wind's warm caress on your cheek, If you hear a bird's song, and even share in that song, You have not been forsaken, Love with Me. Submitted respectfully, by CitM

Exercise for Mental Health

I have found that all the medicine and good works and counseling in the world only gets so far. Exercise, whatever form it takes, is the real medicine. Here are some others, music, singing, arts, taking care of animals, and gardening. Please add your own 'mental health cures' in reply. Perhaps this ...

My mom used to say that life is like being on a boat and we get two oars. Use only one, and you go in circles. The same is true I think with love and work. You can tell someone adnausea that you love them, but if you do not do anything to SHOW that you love them or care about them, it's like you go ...

Pain Mitigation

It is ironic that mental health is not treated as the number one medical crisis of the current world. It should be. Our person-hood is not connected so much to the body we have as it is to the spirit of ourselves. Given that, I'm often told that people are suffering adversely from physical pain or m...

Best Advice I Read Today

I saw this in the pediatrician's office when my daughter was being checked out for illness. I've never been so happy to hear that she had the flu and normal bowel sounds in all of my life. Yeah I've been stressed over here health, or challenges therein. But she's getting better!! And so the poster o...

I'm worthy of trust and I am fun to work with.

I had a revelation today. Someone I'm currently doing professional business with told me they trusted me. Not only that, they told me they are having a ball working with me. And all of a sudden, I could trust myself, and realized that I do have what it takes to be in the professional field I'm in. I...

I don' t know what he did differently other than what he has always done. For me, and I think this is true of a lot of people whose illness is NOT based in actual mental depression or affliction, but has a physical basis for it, I think healing takes awhile. For some people anywhere from 5 to 10 yea...

Probably? Although, I have to say, that often I'm a 'I'm sorry" box.

I got a lot of that for awhile... cried every day for more than four years. But, it got better. The thing to do is when you think of a bad memory say to yourself until you believe it because most of the time it is true. 1. I did the best I could at the time. 2. I did the best I could with the skills...

I think you and AquariusMoon are at different points of the process. Personally, I thought that feeling upset about being depressed or severely anxious a bad thing. And it was at the time. However, when I was able to let it come to the surface for awhile, I found out just how out of control it can m...

Hmm. Well still banned. One other person messaged me and said he was quickly banned for giving an opinion discussed in a chatroom. I don't live anywhere near the park. I don't even walk there. I never even knew it existed before my dad told me about it over Easter. I just thought it was a neat bit o...

Benned from Chat I think Accidently [Resolved]

Well, Somehow I got banned from chat for talking about a historic park. I just thought it was a pretty park and interesting. I did not give a link to the park. I did not ask to meet up with anyone there. I had no intentions of meeting up with anyone really. According to the ban I was advertizing and...

How Many Worlds Again.?

It doesn't matter where you are, because chances are you are with people who can help you, or help ease your symptoms. People talk about Heaven and Hell and Limbo and Dantes Divine Comedy etc. Don't get caught up in that. Ok? I know from experience. They key is to get better by tending the the knitt...

Who would you like to spend an evening with?

One of the MOST annoying questions for me on the planet was this one. Why? BECAUSE I find a lot of people in that category and how can I choose just one? BUT, after starting to get to know people from all sorts of different countries I think I have finally settled on an answer. George Clooney. Serio...
