Depression can be cured.
Yes, I know that’s a bold statement to make and I also know it will make many people very angry that I even would suggest such a thing.
Actually, that anger has always bemused me. The general reaction is: how dare you suggest such a thing! You have not gone through what I have, and you can’t possibly know what it’s like to have gone through Hell and back.
And they are right. No one knows what it’s like to go through what they have gone through, unless they have gone through the same things themselves.
Empaths will feel it, but it’s not the same thing.
Those suffering from depression will know it on such a level that they resent that anyone might claim they understand and can help.
And really, I can turn it around and claim that those people have no clue what I’ve been though, and I’m pretty sure that I’m in the small minority of people who has had also relentless psychic attacks every day for years. I experienced that when I was young and lived with seemingly no hope or help.
But it’s what makes me, me. It’s what has brought me to this point in my life and qualifies me to talk about many subjects that I have personally experienced.
And while I can’t claim to have been through what everyone else has, and let’s face it, who has? It is a fact that depressions come down to certain types and certain categories.
For instance, traumatic childhood events will produce uncleared trauma, and lead to clinical depression if not dealt with. The cause will differ; the results will certainly be similar, though.
And I can claim to have experienced nearly every type of depression over the years. I can also claim that I was able to cure it and move past it.
When I was a teen, I could never accept that certain conditions were incurable. That nothing could be done to help. I could not accept that there wasn’t a solution, and so I, almost obsessively, researched and tried everything I could get my hands on.
Over the years, I must have tried most therapies at least once, and I came across some which were actually effective.
I also came across many that just didn’t do a thing for me. But I still tried them for long enough to see if they would work.
When I write about something, it’s from my own experience. These are the things that have worked for me, on a constant basis, and could be repeated in other people who were experiencing the same type of problems.
So, yes, there are people who will be incensed at my claims that I can help them.
This blog isn’t for them… at least not yet.
It’s for those who have had enough, and are willing to try things that they might not have looked at before.
