If you have been diagnosed by a doctor as having depression, then you need a plan to combine physical pill-taking with cognitive behavior therapy. You can’t just do one magic spell or prayer and suddenly everything is sweetness and light. You need to re-program your brain into seeing the world as it is and not as you fear it to be. The medicine can greatly help you calm down and alleviate your physical symptoms which can aggravate your faulty thought process.
Take time to think about what you want from life. Too often we get rushed into a path that we are really not interested in taking. For some people this might involve a parent pushing them into the family business. For others it might be peer pressure to drop out of school. Only you know what you really want.
If they tell you that the newspaper is talking about them or that the television is talking about them, and they are not famous, then definitely there is something wrong. When someone has depression and crazy they will feel at times that everything is about them. When they read a magazine they will really think that it is talking about them. Even if the paper is talking about pigs, they will think that the pig is supposed to represent them. They will watch television and see something happen and even if it does not have anything with what they have done, they may think that the television is talking about them.
You may have friends and family that can help out while you are trying to deal with that fact that “my boyfriend dumped me.” Do not take advantage though. It is so easy to lay too much on your family and friends. If you ask for advice, follow it or do not ask for it at all.
This is going to be a life style change for you and your loved ones. First and foremost stop drinking and taking illegal drugs if you do. This will only cause negative consequences and can make this disorder worse. Surround yourself with upbeat, positive people. They will help you and will not lead you into bad things.
When I had my episodes I did not know what was real. I saw many people when I was walking around a mall and I thought they were my friends with different faces. I thought that I always talk to the same people, but that their appearance just changes.
Joyce Meyer is my favorite author because she’s not afraid to tell people the abuse she endured and does it in a loving, educational way. My favorite poet is Edgar Allen Poe. Both are very inspirational to me. As far as AC writers, I have so many! My favorites are Rox B. (formerly known as PhoenixRox), Jack Wellman, Heather Tooley, Andrea Rowe, Michele Starkey, Jennifer Bove, and Thomas Griffin. There are so many.
