Natural remedies for depression aren’t a replacement for medical diagnosis and treatment. But, for some people certain herbs and supplements do seem to work well. More studies are needed to determine which natural remedies for depression are most likely to help and what side effects they might cause. Here are four natural remedies that show promise:
There’s even a misunderstanding with the chronic pain people endure due to fibromyalgia, some people don’t see it as a disability.
Be kind, don’t judge.
Women who are fed up with their jobs may be more likely to turn to food for comfort in times of stress, according to a Finnish study. The study, reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that those who reported work burnout were also more likely to have a habit of “emotional” eating, or eating when stressed, anxious or down, rather than just hungry.
What’s more, they were more prone to “uncontrolled” eating — the feeling that you’re always hungry or can’t stop eating until all the food’s gone.
The study, conducted by a team of researchers from the U.K., asked more than 6,000 Germans to self-evaluate five of their core personality traits—agreeableness, conscientiousness, extraversion, neuroticism and openness—over a period of several years. Everyone in the sample began the study with a job, but part of the group lost their jobs and remained unemployed for the duration of the study. Others lost their job and found new employment.
Just a scratch
What’s that mark?”
“It was just the cat”
Just an excuse
Just another lie
“What’s with the bracelets?”
“Just fashion, why?”
Just a tear
Just a scream
“Why are you crying?”
“Just a bad dream”
But it’s not
just a cut, or a tear or a lie
‘Just one more’
Until you die
My first involvement with therapy back in the early 1990’s was Psychodynamic Therapy, and at the beginning I was uncertain what it involved. This form of therapy was used to confront the issues dealing with PTSD, but little did I know I was in for an incredibly bumpy ride. Back then there wasn’t much information on types of therapies used, and wished I had researched and had use of the internet and resources that we do today.
The information on PsychCentral.com site explains:
Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, focuses on unconscious processes as they are manifested in a person’s present behavior. The goals of psychodynamic therapy are a client’s self-awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on present behavior. In its brief form, a psychodynamic approach enables the client to examine unresolved conflicts and symptoms that arise from past dysfunctional relationships and manifest themselves in the need and desire to abuse substances.

I love this quote: “Choose your socks by their colors and your friends by their character. As choosing socks by their character makes no sense. Choosing friends by their color is unthinkable. ~~ Unknown

Happy birthday, honey
Let’s sit down and talk
I heard about a bridge
Tell me what you thought
She called me quite hysterically
She thought you would be dead
So tell me how it started
Let me in your head
I want you to see my counselor
He’s of the spiritual type
And lets talk to a doctor
To get something prescribed
You say it started years ago?
Nobody touched you, right?
Well let me tell you my sad tale
To get you on my side
You have some scars on your arms
You know that’s normal, right?
Your mind is just a bit unbalanced
Someday, you’ll be fine
I know you feel you hate me now
But I can take your hate
I just want you to feel better
I’ll do whatever it will take
I should’ve waited til tomorrow
I ruined your birthday
I won’t give up on…

Kids who are picked on by their peers may see lasting effects on their physical and mental well-being — especially if the bullying is allowed to persist for years, a new study suggests.
The study found that kids who are chronically bullied seem to fare the worst: Those continually picked on from fifth grade to 10th grade had the lowest scores on measures of physical and emotional health. Kids who were bullied at a younger age but saw the problem fade tended to do better. But they were still worse off than their peers who’d never been victimized.
