There are so many people today that suffer from depression. Many
try to seek relief through antidepressant drugs, but have found that
these medications don’t work to alleviate their symptoms, or make
them feel any better. Over time, they may have tried a number of
different prescribed drugs, and even some other drugs, but end up
being frustrated. There are so many things that are bad about these
things, and it is important to avoid them.
‘Fake it till you make it’ is a phrase used a lot in therapy, and if
you have ever gone to a counselor for your depression, you may have
heard this term. It means that you have to keep going, even if you
don’t feel like it, and continue as long as it takes to get better.
It means getting up out of that bed, even if you don’t want to,
dealing with what life presents you each day, and try to enjoy even
the small things that come along.
This means that you have to take control of your illness, not the
other way around. It means getting off these antidepressants that
don’t work, and actively finding something that does. The first
place to start is online. There are an abundance of websites out
there that can help you find ways to deal with your depression
without drugs. There are herbal supplements that you can take, or you
can change your diet, and exercise more. Just get out and do things,
even if you don’t want to. Taking charge of you situation, before
you lose everything that you hold dear.
This means different things to different people. Some get educated
about this disease and even go so far as to try and help other people
in order for them to help themselves as well. This can mean that they
become mental health counselors or possibly even write articles about
depression, to make others aware of ways to improve their symptoms
without antidepressants. It can also mean being aware of the signs in
other people, helping you so that you can be there to help them.
You need to know that you are not alone in your suffering. There are
literally hundreds of thousands of people who are diagnosed with
depression, and even more that don’t get help. Chances are that when
you walk down the street you will see at least one other person every
day who also has this disease. Chances are just as high that they may
be using the ‘fake it till you make it’ logic to go about their daily
lives as well. While they are not cured, they are finding ways to cope
with the reality that they will probably have this problem the rest of
their lives, and are learning to deal with it.
You can do it. The important thing is that you take charge of the
situation, period. Don’t let daily stresses and problems put obstacles
in the way of your recovery, and continue on no matter what. You will
find that if you use this saying as your mantra for life, eventually
it will get easier and easier to wake up every day. You will then be
able to go about your business with the knowledge that you are not alone,
and there are many others who are using this as well.
