Well there are lots of people out there that are suffering from depression. I am one of them and I have been suffering for the last 6 years. I never seems to get better. I have many reasons why I'm depressed but mentioning it doesn't make me any better and the pills they give me don't work either. So what do you do? I pray. Believe it or not it's the only thing that makes sense in my head. I put everything in Mother Mary. I ask her to pray for to her son Jesus Christ to help me. I you truly have faith you will be helped. I hope the lord Jesus Christ will walk by your side and help you on your way to recovery. Amen

Depression is so hard to deal with I have been diagnosed as medically depressed but I have found believe it or not coloring with color pencils helps alot it take your mind off of alot of things and you focus on your picture I have several color books my daughter and I got the same books and we color the same pages together she is in Oregon and I am in Las Vegas. I started out coloring with a lot of dark colors but eventually my colors got brighter. And that's shows improvement . Give it a try I will also be praying for you I Believe In the power in prayer. May God Bless keep your faith.

Check out the lung institute. They do stem cell treatments. I talked to them today. Plan on going forward with it. I'm not too severe in the progression of this disease, but I want to do what I can to keep it under control or even stop it from getting worse. Give them a shot. They are in four different states. Go to the website. Just Google the lung institute.

I have struggled with depression off and on throughout my life. I have tried anti depressant meds a couple of times. They didn’t seem very helpful for me. My last major depressive episode was this year. I became physically unable to do my work. Everything felt like a huge mountain to climb. I retired from my job. And then worried about how I was going to survive on social security. I had very little savings and no retirement plan except for winning the lottery. That didn’t work out. Out of the blue I was given a contact for low income senior housing. Wow. It is the best thing that could have ever happened for me. I have a very nice small apartment. 4 floors of apartments full of people who are in similar shape as me. Financial and health wise. After I got moved in , settled and rested all kinds of social activities were available. I keep myself busy everyday. I am happier now. Back to my inner child laughing and playing with others. Now days when breathing is difficult it doesn’t feel as bad because I have friends who look after me and I watching out for them.

I Try lo live every day as if I,m preparing to go on holidays.Each day I have a list of things i want to do.
I wake up excited and can,t wait to get going on my little list.Most days I complete my list,but when I do not I just add it to tomorrows list..
I still get depressed sometimes but when I do,I start a new list for tomorrow and the depression is gone.
I think keeping yourself occupied is very important.
