    Try this, it worked for me, its not a magical cure, you have to have the right state of mind too but it helps... GL, I know how tuff it can be.

  • You asked, so I'll tell you... the BEST thing for depression is lots of sunshine, fresh air, hydration, and physical activity.

    When you feel out of it, down, angry, hurt, confused, want to cry- grab a bottle of water and start walking (I take all 3 of my kids with me, so that's not an excuse). Don't give yourself a destination, or a time limit. Just walk. I do this several times a week, I also keep the shades open so I always have natural light, and STAY HYDRATED. Believe me or not, being dehydrated (which, if you are thirsty, you already are) is a HUGE factor in how you feel.

  • I completely agree with ObbyDobbie... Speaking from experience, you don't always need medication. I have no insurance either so I can't afford medication. I just changed my surroundings and the food I ate. Disassociated myself from people who was always bringing me down... You just gotta have a little will power.

  • There is a herbal I suggest that comes in trial form. You can try it for a while to see how it works for you without paying the full price then if it works for you then you can get the full bottle. I've tried it personally and I did see a difference in myself. Message me for info about the Calming herbal.
