Lifestyle causes depression
My shrink once said that when I am anxious or angry or whatever, its because my inner child is SCREAMING that there is something terribly wrong.
I guess if I take a look at my life, there are REASONS for my stress and depression and mood swing....the company I keep, the abusive relationship, the lack of financial responsibility, bad diet and nutrition, lack of exercise....all these things are contributing, if not causing, my depression. Medication doesnt work for me because it doesnt change my situation, it only alleviates SOME symptoms and makes it easier for me to stay in this slump because I have something to blame. I bet 90% of us, if we put our minds to it, could get rid of the depression just by making lifestyle changes.
How many of you REALLY take care of yourself? No drugs and alcohol? Excellent diet? Exercise? Not allowing negative people into your life??? It's not always "chemical"
Just a thought.........
