Re: depression

Start with a physician to rule out medical problems. The physician will give an opinion and may recommend treatment..... Alternatives to ad's include therapy, journaling, healthy diet, physical activity and my personal favorite, volunteering. Volunteering is researched and clearly works on depression. The sense of purpose and feeling of helping other folks is priceless. Getting out of your own head and focusing outward is ideal.
