    I suffer with depression and I know it's terrible, for some people it gets better and for some it doesn't, but you can always go see a therapist if not you can take medications.

    Hi. Depression is awful. You need to see your Dr. Discuss all options of treatment open to you. There us light at the end of the tunnel for you. It's a long and bumpy road but you can conquer it. Good luck!

      Barry the point about ad's is not to rely on them to make you enjoy life but they can help you feel better and more able to deal with your issues.  Most people use them short term only as a temporary measure.  How about counselling?

      If you don't want to go the medical route and want to beat it naturally there is only the self help route left.  So look at yoga,  medication and mindfulness etc.  Good luck.  x

    Hello Barry I am so glad that you wrote in to us. Yes depression is very painful to deal with but since it hit you only a month ago I think there is hope for you! One would you like to share what happened a month ago to set this off? Two how old are you and what country do you live in? Diane

    Barry depression makes us feel hopeless. But we are not it just sometimes takes time to figure our way out of it. For me I was in therapy for a long time there isn't anything that is too much trouble for me if it will help me get better and I take an antidepressant. I want quality of life above all else. But that's just me. Diane.

    Hi Barry - there are alternatives to meds. You can try the holistic approach - Lavender, Camomile Tea, St Johns Wort etc. Healthy diet and exercise. Meditation. Fixed sleep patterns.These methods can work for some people with long term depression. Unfortunately, depression affects the most complex organ we have, and if there are chemical imbalances that need addressing, medications are often the only option in conjunction with therapy.  Many people - especially males - dismiss or hide symptoms of mental health illnesses. Many of we sufferers spent our lives self medicating, racking up addictions - perhaps police interference because of that - hiding illness, living in the pain of what lurks within, living in fear of it being revealed, feeling broken/worthless/helpless. 

    Barry, I wish I was your age when i finally sought help to deal with an illness that crippled my life.
