I have been reading (lack of concentration keeps me from remembering much) Deepak Chopra's philosophies concerning mind body spirit balance. I feel as a depressed person I am definitely out of balance. He discusses how when one finds their soul they begin to feel better about themselves. I suspect this to be true however given my mood and disorders I can't practice what he preaches as I don't feel anything. Anyway that's what i'm (trying) reading....

Hi doxiemom.

I don't really understand what D.C. is saying about finding your soul.

But it does sound somewhat poetic, so definitely is food for the artistic soul.

If I have trouble concentrating on what I am reading, I usually picture my significant other laying me across their lap, with warm tropical winds swirling the sand across their toes; of course under the gently waving fronds of a tall palm. And my sig regales me in dulcet tones of the media I have chosen to peruse.

It either tricks me into concentrating harder, or it causes me to explore more active persuits with my significant other.

After which, I find my concentration fully restored!



Anyway I thought I would share what works for me; at the very least it is a laugh!

I was doing some research on cortisol in depressed people and how antidepressant affect cortisol levels and stumbled upon this one. It seems interesting and I have found some good information there: Surviving Antidepressants

facingus.org : has a wellness tracker, you can keep a journal here - useful
also samaritans.org : uk-based, can send email to "joe" (an anonymous volunteer) about your depression, and suicidal feelings. They email a compassionate, thoughtful response w/in 24 hours - I find they are professional and extremely empathetic and caring.

beyondblue - Home is another great resource (from Australia, but helpful anywhere)

also, Black Dog Tribe from the UK great place for fellow sufferers of mental illness to learn and communicate Black Dog Tribe

I felt the same way and have copied it to post. It helps to put things in a shorter time span I think because when I look at my whole life....it's a bit overwhelming.

Thank you as well!
