Discuss depression (Cured myself!)


1 per unit - Virtual OK - Posted Oct 17, 2017

I spent most of my life with a diagnosis of depression. Various mental health providers called it episodic depression, bi-polar disorder, ADHD, clinical depression. I was on three different anti-depressants at various times. I didn't like being on medication, because it took away positive feelings (and those were few and far between) as well as numbing the negative ones. I didn't like being depressed, either, so I did a lot of reading, and a LOT of counseling. Last February, I had an Aha! moment that has effectively rid me of my depression. I would be happy to discuss not only what worked for me, but if you have a loved one who suffers from depression, I can give you insight in to what worked for me from loved ones. I am not medically trained, cannot diagnose, or take on your care. I can only offer my personal experience, and hope that it might help you, or your loved one, find their own answers.

Training & Qualifications

40+ years of depression ;)
A ton of research on my own self, so I have a broad base of recommendations as far as books, self-care techniques, etc. (Again, I don't guarantee that this will work for you, just offering what worked for me.)

Availability & Preferences

I'm generally free on weekends and evenings.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Elisa Welch

I wish I'd found a place like this as a single mom! There are so many things we all have to offer, and even the smallest thing may make someone's day, week or month. Looking forward to exploring this... site in more depth. I love the idea of discovering that I might have knowledge or a skill that could be just the thing that someone else is looking for. I hope that this spreads so that there end up being more Simbi users in my immediate area. Also looking forward to building new relationships, there are definitely some very interesting looking souls on this site!show more
