Re: Depression!!!

Saw this title and remembered I made a thread about this a long time ago with tons of research about depression. There was a lot of cutting edge info but also some subjects from within the last few years from good sources. Hope it helps.

Re: Depression!!!

laugh! start faking laughter with your family members while looking at each other's eyes the same time you laugh, and laugh open mouthed, soon that fake laughter turns into real laughter, then your depression is gone.

Re: Depression!!!

With all the dark dreary days of winter, I can see why so many people get depressed, this time of year.

I wanted to say thank you to everyone for sharing your problems with honesty. Winter is really a bad period for many people.

Re: Depression!!!

Oh yes, I fight with depression. Music, laughter and being able to laugh at myself and to sally forth works. For awhile anyway.

I try to do the best that I am able to every single day.

Re: Depression!!!

We have to fight our way out of depression. Seasonal depression can be devastating to ones own health. Dark and dreary days are the worst

Can't Help Thinking of "The Rose"

Not to suggest a simple fix for complex problems (and, other than it comes every year, I guess there's nothing wrong with hating winter), but winter does have its own beauty and appeal if anyone wants to reframe it more positively.

I won't bore you winterhaters by waxing lyrical about snowflakes and sun dogs, auroras and woodsmoke, or the crisp sound of skates on ice.

But there's always that line in Bette Middler's "The Rose" (penned by Gordon Mills):
Just remember in the winter
far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed that with the sun's love,
In the spring becomes the rose.
(Not sure if I can post a link to this beautiful and inspiring song and lyrics, but it's on Youtube under "the Rose by Bette Midler+lyrics.)
