    Yes, there are some levels of depression that need extra help.I completely agree with that, but this does offer great suggestions for the other levels. :)

    Yes! My mom has been able to manage hers with food changes for many years, but there was many years she was on antidepressants, too.

    Mom said it helped once we all got out of the house. She could have her down days (it would never be BAD, like she didn't want to live days, but days where she just can't find happiness anywhere) and not have to try and pretend in front of anybody. She started experimenting with foods and exercise then.

    I have a few of those days still. But they are few and far between. There's been a few days we've gone to mom's, we'll get there, change the kids and go to the park. The outdoor air seems to help her a lot. Or a blizzard from DQ lol.

      It's really difficult when you're in a low place. Unfortunately, I've been there. After my mother passed away, I really struggled. My teen years and early twenties were very unhappy times for me. I felt extremely alone and professional help made me feel like I was beneath everyone. Some things that helped me was finding new hobbies to enjoy life, surrounding myself with people who were genuinely good for me, and cutting the toxic people out of my life.

      I'm sorry you went through that but am glad you found a way out.
