Hi,
Exercise is a great means of helping with depression. It is believed that it generates natural serotonin which of course is a natural anti-depressant.

I have been on a lot of drugs (over 170) and I know they are not always the answer. They often make you feel worse!

Perhaps we should look at our lives and see what we can change there: be good to ourselves, have occasional treats, enjoy the sunshine and fresh air, socialise more, join a club or a church, talking therapy with counsellors etc etc. Animals also have a great boosting effect on our lives.

I understand how you feel because I like many others am coping with the same problem of treatment resistant depression. However, I have an underlying condition which I can do nothing about!!

Also, make sure you do see a specialist. If there is an underlying condition then seek treatment for that.

The Samaritans are always there if you need someone just to talk to. They are wonderful people and can help.

I hope that all goes well with you. I will keep you in my thoughts. So many people DO care.

Best wishes,
Tez
