How Do You Fix a Depression Cold?

You know what a cold feels like physically, but can you have a similar condition without the physical attributes? My definition of a “Depression Cold” is just feeling down, out of sorts, and maybe even a little miserable, but worst of all, it hangs around and doesn’t seem to go away.

There are the usual band aid solutions such as food, alcohol and drugs, but also pleasant and effective natural remedies, that will actually re-balance your body.

The fact is, unfortunately it happens, and happens a lot. People are being dismissed because of their depression.

This is somewhat of a vicious circle.

Many people may not know where to look for a therapist. It can be an intimidating process as it means that we are admitting to seeking help. In our context, seeking help seems to be a weakness.

Signs of Depression and Disorders of the Self
