I'm keeping a journal here about my struggle through depression using only alternative and more natural methods than drugs.
I'm half way there. 1 year ago I was a suicidal mess. I lived in a dark world of psychosis and visual hallucinations, self harming, dreaming of suicide every evening, having crying break downs for no reason. 1 year ago I also discovered that these intense symptoms of depression were a result of a hidden food allergy I did not realize I had. Actually, a few hidden food allergies. Removing my food allergies was the first step towards healing my depression, it took me 50% of the way there just like that. No more dreaming of suicide, no more urge to self harm, no more visual hallucinations and no more crying outbursts for no reason. If you want to know more about this, you can send me a message.
At that time I did not realize that removing these allergies would affect my mental state so drastically. That was the beginning of my journey out of a life-long depression, and many other ailments that I before thought were related to it.
Now I realize that my way out is through alternatives.... I have since tried many things, which I will mention as my days go on here. That's where I am now... This is my place to post my daily progresses and back-steps... Nobody has to read this, I just need the space to talk about what is working and what is not, so I can look back.
