New to the forum but not depresion and troubles in the family life.
I will be looking into the Inositol too. Thanks AGrace.
My situation is far more than a depresion issue for myself, it includes mental issues my wife "struggles" with at my cost as well as others now.
"Struggling" in that she refuses to accept there is anything wrong with her other than "mild depression and anxiety".
My situation is a huge and overwhelming one. It could almost make for a movie.
I am a believer in God but come from a family of athiests. Things that have happened to me in life have made it un-deniable that he is real and that he wants a relationship with his creation and proves himself to us if we let him.
I have 2 kids and my good night prayer to them is short and very meaningful & is something also encouraged from the bible. I would guess that these topics are sensitive so I will not expound on it, just that,
each day is a new day. Start the day not looking at yesterdays problems.
Just as important is to realize that sufficient unto the day is the problems there of.
Dont add to it by trying to make things worse for one's self. No one knows what tommorrow brings and yesterday cant be re-lived.
Drop the self condemnation at the end of the day and better still dont pick it up at the begginning of it. It can be an automatic habit to do.
It was for me and still can be if I dont remind myself.
I am not in denial that I have a sensitivity to depresion and mood swings but was delivered from its crippling grasp just before I married. After 7 yrs things took a bad turn, trying to deal with my partners "character" & issues that went with that, along with other of lifes hurdles that all came to a head at once took me down (after a long stint of stability reached through finding God).
It is only now that the peices to the puzzle of all that hapened then and continues to happen in the relationship sense are coming together to make sense. One of my big resolves is that there is no answer in ending things in the life sense. That only causes more pain for others. There is a great wealth of energy to be had from considering others before one self. In a balance this is meant. Not one extreme where you destroy yourself, nor where one only thinks of one self and destroys others.
Finding a balance would be one of my biggest goals.
Communication and unconditional love is key to finding balance.
Sorry for the big input but hope it is helpful.
