  1. Are they crazy??? Treating people with ketamine??? I AM SHOCKED!
    Use full spectrum CBD oil (cannabis oil) for your depression it works better than anything and it will not have any horrible side effects.
    If you don't know what I am talking about please learn more at: before you start taking ketamine…gosh!!! :/

  2. Start being kind to yourself most of our problems manifest out fancied perceptions and are not based in fact. What has worked for me is to share these dysfunctional thoughts and feelings with people I trust, see, they are not real they are based around a false perception of reality – remember, that everything is going to be ok!!!
    Antidepressants did not work for me either they actually made me feel worse, more lethargic and he generally quite numb.
    What has worked for me when I’m feeling depressed is to start helping other people and find out how they are this immediately builds my self worth and self esteem and I naturally feel a sense of well being within myself. Eating healthy, mindfulness and lots of exercise will also have a much more beneficial effect than antidepressant or antipsychotic medications.

  3. Jesus is king. He loves you all and wants to have a relationship with you. Will you accept his invitation?28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Go to Him in prayer. Mathew 11:28
    John 3:16 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    Work out why you suffer from depression – the first step to solving a problem is understanding why you have it.
    Be at ease about yourself – this makes it less difficult
    Just do it – you will feel better by taking action – especially by doing activities which stretch your boundaries.

  9. I have depression.I cannot understand why.People around me are so fake.They act nice when you're facing them but they make your life suffer when you are not aware about it.I can't understand why they hate me.I tried all my best to act nice to them but things seem worst.They have this reasons.They are jealous of me because my fashion is better than them and I am literally the best student in school.My teachers love me but I'm not a predator.That fashion I am saying are expensive clothes and the way those things suit me.They all say I'm making them jealous on purpose. That just makes me feel I am am boastful person,and an attention seeker.That just makes me look like a bad person.All my years I thought I was the worst person alive in this world,and all the fortune I got is death.It seems like they are happy with me not being around,or even better,me being dead.They say I'm a big problem to their lives.I'm always questioning my whole existence.Why did I met those snakes?Why did I became friends with them?Why am I living if my role is just to make someone's life bad if I'm not even doing anything.I hate this world.It seems like I should live in a different planet,a different universe.I'm here just suffering and receiving all the pain these people are giving me.Words that come out of their mouths are "You are the best" but all I can read in their minds are "Fuck you".I know I've done many stupid things that lead to stupid consequences but I never knew being yourself,nice,polite,and honest can lead to the worst.
