Healing Depression Series: You can cure depression or WTF! How dare you say that!

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.

    It depends on what you consider to be “cured.” Do you mean to never experience it again? Or to just have it under control?
    I have the kind of depression that is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. Think of it like diabetes. My brain isn’t making enough serotonin, just like a pancreas isn’t making enough insulin. Both can be controlled, either through diet, exercise, and other therapies, or through drugs. So far I’ve avoided drugs fairly well despite them being pushed at me. I’ve had depression for maybe 16 years, maybe longer, it’s hard to tell. Maybe one day my brain will suddenly correct itself, but you know, I’ve gotten to the point where it doesn’t matter anymore. Depression doesn’t define me, it isn’t who I am, but it is a part of me and I’m ok with it. I know how to deal with it and keep it under control.

      Well, you can’t stop depression from reoccurring.. Life happens, and things go wrong. You can, however, heal the depression when it happen. By heal, I mean remove the depression so you no longer feel depressed.

      I suffer from depression, it’s true, but I also know what causes it in me, and that allows me to heal it so it no longer effects me. By no longer effecting me, I mean, I feel the depression lift, and I feel joyful and happy, and confident.

      According to the doctors, I had that same chemical imbalance where I wasn’t getting enough serotonin. Hence, they tried ant-depressants with me. It did more harm than good for me, though.

      Depression has causes. Addressing those causes is the key. Covering them up and trying the trick the brain into producing more serotonin is not.

    As J said, “of course” it’s curable. Although of course everyone goes through tough life events so we can’t expect to feel cheerful all the time. If only the medical profession and other therapists that have bought into the crap actually realised that antidepressants don’t save lives… they essentially kill the person’s soul while they are still here in body. I came face to face with that issue again with a client today but couldn’t say anything… no wonder I had to start an anonymous blog to avoid holding my feelings about it bottled up! People need healthy food, exercise, social contact, a purpose, a sense of achievement and for others to believe in them – not medication!

    Of course depression, however severe, is curable. After 16 years of massive depression including suicide attempts and NDEs and OBEs and being overtaken by dark entities, in addition to psychiatric problems, etc etc etc, it eventually dissipated with very sincere allopathy medical treatment, regular visits to the shrink, bach flower remedies (such powerful darlings!), meditation, exercise, and grit-my-teeth-and-get-the-hell-out-of-this, I can say that with some authority. The external causes of depression might not change but WE change from within. It’s been more than half a dozen years now, no trace of it anymore. I agree with you, Gary. Depression is totally curable. We must want to get out of it and work very hard to reach that goal.

      So beautifully said. Thank you. And yes, the dark entities are something I will get to in time. For the Empath, that’s very important information.
