Hey Just looking,
Welcome to Healing well.
This forum has become a lifeline for me. I don't have anyone else I can talk to about my depression. My parents may know but, this is not something we talk about. My husband knows but isn't comfortable talking about it. With my friends, I like to pretend I'm normal. Someday I will be. Like Elisha, I feel it's nobody elses business.
I again agree with 'Elisha' that a major depression cannot be 'cured' by exercise, and changing your 'state of mind'. However, these things have been extremely helpful with a more minor depression. And they're FREE.
Also, some depression is natural and healthy IF there is a valid reason (breakup, employment problems, housing problems, death... etc) providing it doesn't last too long.
As to your money problems and treatment. If you can see a family Dr it would help you immensely. They will have more knowledge about programs for drugs and treatment in your local area. Plus drug companies usually send them drug samples directly.
Glad you stopped by,
