Have you tried therapy yet?

Psychotherapy. There are several types of psychotherapy that have been shown to be effective for depression including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and interpersonal therapy (IPT). Research has shown that mild to moderate depression can often be treated successfully with either of these therapies used alone. However, severe depression appears more likely to respond to a combination of psychotherapy and medication.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) – helps to change the negative thinking and unsatisfying behavior associated with depression, while teaching people how to unlearn the behavioral patterns that contribute to their illness.

Interpersonal therapy (IPT) – focuses on improving troubled personal relationships and on adapting to new life roles that may have been associated with a person’s depression.

> I have read books on Goals and Motivation, i was reading on some articles on the net (dont know if they where just commercial propaganda) that actually making a desision to act on something will increase dopamine levels or what ever the situation is to complete.
> Alot of times people with ADHD dont finish tasks, but I want to be in a process to change nuerological change. I have burned out on things before, because I feel i just dont have the drive. I AM going to change that, develop drive and dopamine levels.
> Becoming Optmistic is by choice i think, but it is hard to change what ever is already there, you dont want to change your current activity. Sometimes to change a life takes extreme desire to act and change.
> Depression i know is labled a mental condition, and i suffer from it, but i think its TWO things, current nuerological problem (with nuerotransmitter transmission) and or current situation that set it off. Same thing with Anxiety.
> Medications are good, but can you change really into a diffrent person with a new perception of reality? (a postive perception)
> I just wanted to know something what other people belive.
