How to Treat Depression - FREE!
Are you feeling down in the dumps? Do you ever wonder if life will ever get better?
I guarantee you'll never find a more GENUINE, comprehensive site dedicated to helping you battle your depression woes.
If you've tried everything and can't seem to get out of your funk, you'll find some useful self-help strategies that I've personally used to help me during my own struggles with depression, sadness, anxiety, etc.
I'm no doctor, but I believe that's what makes this site so special. Not to discredit or disregard physicians, but a lot of depression websites are written by people who have never experienced it.
Or they're created by companies who want to sell you some kind of medication. Trust me... these websites HATE AttackDepression.com because I am probably killing their sales.
Do a Google search for "depression" and you're bombarded with ads for overpriced medication and the same information over and over again. These sites aren't interested in treating your depression. They have one goal in mind...
...Make a profit from you!
Most medication does not fight the problem at the source (unless you have a chemical imbalance.) In most cases, it temporarily relieves symptoms of depression (anxiety, upset stomach, etc.). So while the symptoms may go away for a few hours, the source of the depression is still there.
So you never really get rid of the depression. You just keep taking medication to mask the symptoms. And because the symptoms keep coming back, you become dependent upon the medication. So the viscious cycle continues! And that's exactly what these companies want.
I Can Relate to You
This site is authored by someone who understands a lot of what you're going through. I've battled depression myself!
So, I'm not here to recommend some prescription meds and just send you on your way because I believe many people can cure depression without them.
Don't get me wrong. Sometimes depression comes from a chemical imbalance in the brain and medication is needed. If you are suicidal or feel like you're beyond help, you should seek medical attention immediately!
However the good news is, most people can cure depression without a drop of medication.
Some people will disagree with this, but I believe many types of depression can be treated by simply changing your thoughts and renewing your mind. It definitely worked for me as my depression stemmed from years of negative thinking and low self confidence. So a lot of the tips and information here will be centered around these subjects.
I still battle depression and anxiety off and on today, but the difference is, I am learning how to manage and cope with it so my periods of sadness and anxiety are getting shorter and shorter. I am watching my life get better and better each and every day.
I do believe in The Secret and it's helped me greatly! I only hope more people learn why it's so crucial to understand if you want to live a happy life. Like it or not, we are all using The Secret right now.
You Are in Good Company
The first thing I want you to realize is, you are NOT alone. When you're depressed, you often feel like you're in a world by yourself and no one is worse off than you and it will just never get better.
You may think you're the only person with your particular problem and no one would understand. (Trust me I've been there! Depression is very isolating and can make you feel awful and alone.)
The good news for you is no matter what caused the depression or how bad you feel, there are millions of people who have conquered their depression and they were in a much worse situation than YOU!
I don't say that to belittle what you're going through because I can only imagine how painful it is. I say that to ENCOURAGE you and to let you know that I believe you can beat this demon that has been taking over your life.
Find What Works For YOU!
If you believe that you are beyond help, this site will cause you to think otherwise. Many of you will learn that you simply haven't tried the right techniques.
We're all individuals and our depression stems from different sources (abuse, negative thinking, low self esteem, etc.) Techniques and treatments that work well for you may not work for someone else. That's why you'll find many different options and ideas on this site. I encourage you to try them out and see what works best for you.
Eckhart Tolle's book, A New Earth has also been a huge help. It gave me a whole new outlook on handling my emotions and how to cope with them. It's teaching me how to accept my feelings and through that, it brings healing.
That sounds amazingly cooky, I know. But if you read this book and understand the principles in it, then it will change your life.
Also, if you suffer from anxiety, here's some tricks that will show you how to beat it without medication.
