Depression is the bane of dedicated writers and regular folks too. Can’t promise much production as I should be in intensive therapy for the next few weeks. I am keeping a diary and journal of my struggle and may hope to publish it God willing to help others who have to overcome childhood abuse and neglect. I am delayed onset depression. I can tell you that exercise and food and social withdrawal kept me going. When younger I was a sex addict. But I never used alcohol, street drugs, prescription drugs and never attempted suicide. So therefore I am eligible for outpatient treatment.
Pray for me and I’ll pray for you. This is the worst disease ever. People told me I was crazy, they were right. People told me to lose weight, now I’ve lost 30 pounds in about two months. Not having an appetite seems really really strange to me. I miss being outside. I did a lot of crying and praying. Now I am into relaxation, meds, accupuncture and SLOWING MYSELF WAY DOWN.
I will write when I can. I did not even watch the debates nor care to. You know that’s not like me. I am taking no pleasure in my life or life in general. Just my season to suffer. Yesterday was my birthday too.

I have been using both these supplements ginko biloboa and vinpocetine and Omega-3 (walnuts and flax seed oil) and B vitamins for the past month. And they really work. I have also changed my diet and got rid of things causing inflammation. But I had bad brain fog could hardly think. And as “friends” used to tell me “you crazy.” Well, they were right. I earned by insanity honestly with a boatload of karma I have chosen to pay off in this lifetime.
But if you want to increase blood flow to your brain I highly recommend these two supplements. I need to do a little research on supplements for depression such as St. John’s Wart. That’s not my main problem but a symptom for now. I have another diagnosis actually. Things have greatly improved with prayers and proper diet.
