“Falling in love with depression.” ~ Doc Meek

Tuesday, January 25, 2011. Today I am grateful to know that depression can be treated by treating it as a learning disorder. So says my friend, who feels that depression is a learned behavior and can be chosen actively at will, albeit often  subconsciously. Same with addictions. Is depression an addiction?

What does depression feel like?

People view depression many different ways: http://www.healthexpertadvice.org/forum/Mental-Health/What-does-depression-feel-like-152591.htm

Letter from my friend: “Hi Collins,  Interesting approach to addictions.  Way back I remember finding that article called “You don’t have to be depressed it you don’t want to”.  I no longer have anything on it but when I just sit and read the Title there is a lot of food for thought there.   Also I once heard the line, “If you’re depressed perhaps that is the state you function best in.”  I guess some people are in a large comfort zone in depression because they really understand it and know where they are all the time. Maybe there is nothing wrong in living in a depressed state.”

In my previous posting, January 24, 2011, I quoted someone: “Depression is the natural result of unwanted circumstances.” If you missed that posting, simply click on this link:

    Yeah, I feel jaded by how depression was presented to me as a nursing student.
    But it was sure effective in making it so I ensured my patients…and husband take their meds. I’m reading a lot about the different facets of depression. Thanks for the interesting post!!

  • Luisa, Great to see you on THE LEARNING CLINIC WORLDWIDE blog! I have learned that many people taking antidepressants (SSRIs) don’t get better. They just kind of limp along and are on their meds “forever” instead of getting better. So the meds can help at first and then they require the addition of a natural product (SAMe = S-adenosylmethionine)), available at health food stores or at Life Extension <http://search.lef.org/search/default.aspx?s=1&QUERY=SAMe>. Clinical studies show that the combination can be very helpful. Then of course the person needs to do something else beyond just taking the meds. They need to learn to change their thinking patterns. A hundred ways to do this. Most not easy, except for the “tapping the meridian points” protocol.
    Love, Blessings, and Gratitudes, Collins (aka Doc)
