Being in the throws of depression, anxiety, or any other mental health challenge, it is easy to focus on the symptoms and the suffering. And if that is where you are right now, there is hope and there is help! This is a community designed to support each other through the challenges of "mental illness". But, if every one is solely focused on the suffering, where is the hope?, where is the help?
I urge those who have encountered any kind of strategies that have given them relief and success to share with this community what has worked for you. By focusing on a solution, you not only are taking your focus off of the suffering, but are giving other people hope. It serves your own well being and the well being of others. This is the strategy I choose to share with you that has helped me relieve my symptoms of major depression and generalized anxiety. Sharing with others strategies that have worked for me gives me a purpose that was missing in the throws of my depression. What has worked for you?
