Depression is very crippling if you don’t know how to get a grip on it. Even if you do have a strategy for lowering your depressive symptoms it might not always work. I know how depression can take the enjoyment out of life because I’ve been living with bipolar disorder for over 18 years. I’ll be in a manic phase then “boom” will fall into depression for a few days. For some, the highs and lows can be extreme causing longer periods of instability. For me, depression is way more crippling because it sucks the life right out of me. It makes you question the reason for living and if you’ll ever get better.
Over the years, I have dedicated myself to helping others. I’ve taken time to find healthy ways to cope with depression and want to pass on what I’ve learned. You see, living with depression doesn’t need to be the end of the road because it can be the beginning of progress. Research shows there are effective strategies proven to work in treating depression. From my own personal experience of living with bipolar disorder for over 18 years, you can truly be happy by making a few changes to your lifestyle. That’s right, you need to make lifestyle changes to beat depression and live the joyous life you deserve.
