Depression the Way Out
A couple of months ago a friend invited us to a seminar on depression. The speaker was Dr. Neil Nedley who runs a depression recovery program.
Neil Nedley is a physician in Internal Medicine and specializes in the difficult to diagnose patient.
He has written several books on recovering from depression including the one shown here. He also has a 10-day program where 90% of the depressed patients recover.
We hope to go to this program ourselves if our Heavenly Father provides the way. My husband suffers from major depression and needs the one-on-one attention this program gives.
We have this book, Depression: The Way Out, and would recommend it to anyone fighting this condition. It has practical ways to recover from your melancholy at home and can be a lifesaver.
I would rather have a headache than depression. A few years ago I too suffered from depression and spent close to three years under its heavy burden. My recovery came after I moved away and house sat for my mother. Her place
was set in the mountains of southern Oregon and the weather was mild and the evergreens gave off a healthy scent that would come riding on the breezes through my windows.

My recovery came after I moved away and house sat for my mother. Her place was set in the mountains of southern Oregon and the weather was mild and the evergreens gave off a healthy scent that would come riding on the breezes through my windows.
I spent my time hiking and taking some computer classes at the local community college. Another thing I did to combat this dread disease was to take a couple of tablespoons of cold pressed flaxseed oil each morning. I added it to a half glass of milk. The milk helped to may it drinkable and also the protein in the milk helped my body to digest the oil. Taking it plain may keep it from working the way it should.
After a few months of living this way I realized that I was having good days more than bad and I started to notice when I was downhearted and would fight it the best way I could.
Another thing that helped was NOT to indulge in sorrow.
This came about before I moved to my mom's place. One day a year or so before my recovery I was sitting in my room and thinking of all the things that made me sad. I had come to my room with medium depression and was gathering up all the things in my life that were downers.
Suddenly a strong voice spoke in my mind, don't indulge sorrow, it said. I instantly realized that it was God speaking to me and that He was displeased that I would sit there and make my depression worse by gathering up all the gloom.
I was pretty impressed and quickly dropped down to my knees and apologized for indulging in sorrowful thoughts. I also remember being a little annoyed that God gave me a reprimand instead of saying something that would comfort me.
But looking back I realize this is what I needed to hear. I had a duty to resist melancholy thoughts and even though I could not help it when depression would weigh me down I was not supposed to make it worse but to do what I could to keep my mind from giving into it.
Now that I am recovered I still don't have as much enthusiasm that I had before the depression hit. I still don't take on big responsibilities like I did. However I feel so much better and this has given me the ability to help my husband when he is down. We have high hopes for this program with Neil Nedley and hope to go soon.
After we go to the program I plan to give a update here to tell you how it went.
Another strange thing I should tell you about is how my husband reacts to vitamins. I have to be careful and give him only what he really needs. If I give him a daily vitamin his depression gets worse. However because he is a vegetarian I give him a vitamin B12 (also D3 during winter months) every few days but otherwise stay away from them.
If you take a lot of vitamins and suffer from depression you should try going off of them for 3 months and see how you feel. You might be surprised at your improvement. Also beware of fortified cereals and other foods that contains a lot of added vitamins.
