Depression Recovery: Physical & Psychological Treatment, Relationships & Hobbies

Merely Me Health Guide

    Hi everybody!


    I hope you all have been having a pretty good week and hanging in there.  Sometimes it is a measure of our success that we have survived the week...minute by minute.


    It is time for another question of the week!


    But before I pose my question I am going to indulge in some shameless self promotion.  I hope you will forgive me.  But seriously...I am also writing on some other sites on Health Central and I wanted to tell you about it. 


    Along with depression I also have Multiple Sclerosis.  I was diagnosed in the fall of 2007.  It has been a long strange trip so far.  Part of how I cope with having this disease is to write about it.  If you have MS or know someone who has this disease...Health Central has a wonderful group to help you deal with it.  Here is the link to my profile should you care to investigate this topic further.

    I am also the Community Leader as well as a writer on Health Central's Sexual Health site.  We are all sexual creatures.  It is a big broad topic.  I am trying to get some discussions going on over there as well as more diversity in answering the many questions we receive.  So I do welcome you to come on write a sharepost or ask or answer questions.  Just follow this link.


    Before I had children I had gotten my Master's in Special Education.  I worked in the field for over ten years before making that decision to stay home with my kids.  My education was not wasted.  My youngest son has autism.  It has been an adventure to say the least.  It is my greatest dream to help other parents who have a child who has special needs.  And so I am extremely honored to have the opportunity to write on Health Central's ADHD site  as well as the Friend's of Quinn site.


    I want to make a difference.  I have always wanted to help people ever since I was a little girl.  This is the way that I heal...through my writing and by reaching out to others.  Honestly...sometimes I don't know why I have always followed this path.  But I feel strongly that this is the direction I am to go. 


    Whatever you are going through...there are resources out there to help.  Health Central is one place to go when you need information and support.


    Okay now for a question!


    Do you believe that it is possible to recover from depression?  I have my thoughts about this but I want to hear yours first.


    Remember that you are what makes this site great.  If it weren't for you guys we would not have a site at all.  I am so happy to see our community grow.  Please keep sharing your experience here.  Just speaking for myself...I have been helped by your contributions.  This place my home.
