About Me

My photo
Hello and welcome to my site. Everyone faces depression at some point in their life. This is a collection of my poems and metaphors that helped lift me up from the depth of my own depression. I pray my words will help some of you cope and rise up to help others. Together the world can be a more pleasant place to live when we all care for each other. In an effort to help finance my writing career, and currently fix my vehicle as I am without one, I have decided to affiliate my website with a few shopping sites. Amazon and Target will pay me a small percentage of any order placed through these pages, so if you would like to help support my website or my writing career, please use my links to these premium stores. It cost no additional money on your part. Thank you so much if you do, or even if you don't. I really appreciate the visits to my blog. If you love my poems be sure to leave me a review on Amazon good reads as this will help me reach new people.

Depression signs and symptoms

There are many signs from the onset of depression, that when caught early, I feel one can confront the feelings and better learn to control the symptoms.
Anxiety can best be described as an emotion characterized by an unpleasant inner turmoil, often accompanied by nervousness such as pacing back and forth, and focusing on the symptoms of one's distress, and on its possible causes and consequences, as opposed to its solutions, know as rumination.
I feel with my own depression, that I often was very guilty of that. We tend to see and focus on the problem and not the solution, or possible relief in many situations in life.
Dysthymia, also known as Persistent Depressive Disorder is a disorder containing the same cognitive and physical symptoms as depression, but with less severe symptoms that persist usually longer.
Sadness, sorrow, crying, stomach turning butterflies, sweating, chest pain, extreme nervousness, fatigue, irritability, anger, hopelessness and resentment are but some of the physical and mental strains associated with depression and chronic anxiety.
Hope is available and treatment is achievable. There are many courses and doctors that can help one maintain a sense of importance, and renew an inner piece and feeling of worth.
In my own case I struggled with these emotions and still to this day face anxiety on a regular basis. I face each day with hope and faith, live each day to help others around me and divert my own shortcomings into a positive effect on those I surround myself with thus lifting me up in the process. I always surround myself with positive people and try to avoid the negative whenever possible.
I discovered poetry as a relief in my own state of mind and gained a few fans along the way. They inspired me to continue and make these poems public, this was how I lifted myself up from the depression that quite literally almost killed me.  Now they serve as an inspiration to others to indulge in self help and the healing power of ones own mind. Often untapped and mostly overlooked, we are our own best medicine. Gluten free and organic ;) . Seriously tho, I always hate putting chemicals into my body and opt for a more natural form of healing, for me it was writing and expression. For others it is creativity through art, sculpture, cooking or any other hidden talents you may have untapped and locked inside your own mind.
