My depression is back ( video)

I write an earlier blog post on depression and I just uploaded a video expanding what I talked about in my post.  Depression is very real and destructive for fortunately for me I have learned to reach out for help and am making progress; like making videos; that would be have been unimaginable a mere few months ago.  Anyways check out the video and feel to subscribe to my Youtube channel. Thanks

  1. Hi Dave, I’m so sorry you feel this way. My dear friend is going through a similar thing, she lost her 27 year old son a couple of weeks ago, to Cancer, she simply cannot get out of bed. I wish I could help you, or say something useful, all I can think is that routine is extremely important, you must go to bed at a decent hour and sleep, nobody can think straight or function properly without this basic thing. Electronics are recommended to be turned off at least 1 hour before going to bed. A good daytime routine is essential, eating properly, getting out and about, even just a short walk. Please let me know how you get on. All the best x

  2. Hi Dave. I watched your video with a little tremor of fear as I suffered from depression for a while. We are all different of that I am aware, so what worked for me may not work for you. I have discovered though that keeping busy, talking to people rather than just being with people helps. It took a long time for me to learn that I am not defined by bouts of depression. For a long time writing has helped. I try to write every day and when I don’t get to write creatively, I simply jot a few words down in a journal, it helps to remind me of the good I can do. It anchors me and gives me a purpose. I find volunteering does that for me along with getting me out amongst like-minded proactive people, in other words, optimistic people who don’t tend to judge but accept that I am doing my best and every now and then I will mess up because I am human. Happy to read from the reply above that you felt better, I wish you a lifetime timeof good days. Take care.

    1. I agree with you. I find my writing helps me tremendously; I am also part of a mental health community on Instagram and twitter; that makes a difference. I actually just finished volunteering today and it makes a huge difference in my life too. I appreciate your comments; thank you
