My daughter suffers from sever boughts of depression out of the blue. She will be just sitting and bust out crying for no reason and when you ask her what's wrong she says she doesn't know. We have her on anti depressants which help very much but she still has these boughts from time to time. I read somewhere once that caffine is good for depression and started keeping chocolate bars in the fridge for her. I also make her tea. These two things seem to help lessen the attacks from strong to weak. She feels one coming on and runs for a candy bar right away. The sooner she gets the caffine the quicker she is out of the danger zone of a bad attack.
I suffered from depression and anxiety for many years and was on many different medications to try to fix it but just made me tired, and I was still antisocial and unable to show emotion although I was feeling it. This is going to sound odd but since because wheat products amongst other gluten containing things are so genetically modified over the years, people are starting to show many different side affects of what is used now called dwarf wheat that was created in I think the 1950's to help cure world hunger. There are over 100 different side affects of gluten intolerance and this is one of them. A MAJOR one! After doing many hours upon hours of research and reading the book Wheat Belly I went gluten free. It was a very hard lifestyle change, but within the first couple months I had no longer needed medication, had increased energy, became happy again, and most important started to become more active in my nephew's life!! This may not be a cure for everybody, but this helped me and I am just as happy and have the amount of energy that I did 20 years ago. That book is a must read, and look it up online the link between gluten and depression. Give it a try for a couple months and if it doesn't help then research another route that may be helpful. Its worth your mental and physical health to at least try it. Its hard but there are MANY gluten free alternatives out there like pastas, breads (Udi's is best I found), PIZZA...

I've struggled with depression for several years now;I don't want to go on medication because I'm young and I know my brain is still developing and my hormones still need a little time to balance out (I'm 19). There are a few practical things I do when I'm feeling down. Doing yoga or hard excercise (or both) usually helps tremendously. Preparing and eating a good natural meal with other people always makes me feel better too. But two things that are SO IMPORTANT are prayer and talking to people about it. Promise a friend that you will tell them when you're having suicidal or depressing thoughts (preferably someone who understands depression first hand) and talk to God. Diet and medication and excercise can always change but God is always listening and ready to hear what you have to say. You are never completely alone. Always remember that!
Listening to actual non-terrible music has an additional effect, since pleasurable music releases dopamine that simply makes certain parts of your brain function better (particularly if they were damaged before).
As a late middle-aged woman, who has suffered from long bouts of severe depression since childhood, I consider myself quite an expert on this subject.
I find that when I really activate my energy (by running, dancing or chanting) the depression lifts. Really push yourself to expand beyond your perceived limits. The aerobic effect is paramount, and a bit of puffing and panting can be most refreshing when You've been slumped for a while. It also helps to let go of anything that You know is undermining your well-being In my case I have recently chosen to give up pot, coffee and wheat products, with excellent results on the many levels. I KNOW that tobacco must be the next to go, and that I must re-establish my 'running' regime ASAP .........
Depression runs in my Family and I am currently on meds. However I would still have those weak moments of panic. Where you just don't feel like yourself...even weak minded and scared at times. I started taking MSM and within 2 weeks my mind clarity was SO MUCH BETTER!! Those moments of uncertainty and panic are gone. I plan on taking this stuff for the rest of my life because it's so cheap and works miracles for Skin, Depression, COPD, Diabetes, Pain and AWESOME for Allergies too!! I am thinking about weaning myself off my Depression Meds now to see if this MSM takes care of it on it's own. I am thrilled with all that MSM does for the body.

I was diagnosed with severe depression, to the point of cutting myself and committed suicide. Turned out I was bi-polar plus I was very stressed out. I have fully recovered and i now hope that all who are depressed realize that you are not alone! I still have the cars to prove that even when it is bad their are always people their that love you! YOU ARE LOVED AND NOT ALONE!!!!
