Depression: the signs that should alert

Distinguish between depression and depression "I am sad", "I am depressed". These expressions, used over and over, do not make it possible to distinguish ordinary abatements from real illness. Extending far beyond sadness, depression is a crippling moral suffering that disrupts relationships with family, friends and professionals. It appears in the form of more or less long episodes. If it lasts over time, we talk about chronic depression. As for bipolar disorders (previously called "manic depression"), it is an alternation of depressive episodes and periods of over-excitement and exacerbated euphoria. Depressed people say they have never experienced this type of disturbance before, although they have already experienced sadness or dif...

Depression: devoting yourself to yourself is important

Are Antidepressants a Really Effective Solution for Depression? Antoine Pelissolo: Regarding serious and characterized depression which prevents life, destroys sleep and disrupts appetite according to well-defined criteria, these drugs are quite simply essential.

It was at Visionpure, the first horse-guided personal development center, also a place for training practitioners, located in the Vexin natural park, in the Paris region, that Amélie met me. Nothing to do with an equestrian center or a place of care. Fields as far as the eye can see, tall trees, birdsong and, of course, horses. They live in freedom, they are the lords of the place. I am welcomed by Eva Reifler, founder of the center. She slips away very quickly so that Amélie and I can exchange freely. As we sit comfortably on a sofa by the fireplace, Amélie tells me how she found her way to Visionpure. “It was in December 2013, three months after a suicide attempt, several hospitalizations in psychiatry and years of classic psychotherapy.

You tell me that your mother suffers from depression, that your father is "in distress" because of his loneliness and that you are so attached to them that, you write to me: "Seeing them live a sad life makes me sad and robs me of hope for my own future. " An entire program ! It suggests that you have, with your parents, a relationship that does not allow you to feel a person different from them, capable of experiencing something other than them. And that you have undoubtedly repeated this relationship with your c...
