There are commonalities in life dominated by depression and in some of the phases most of us go through as we learn what it is and how we can deal with it.
But I want to make sure I can capture the range of differences too. Recognizing the Need for Help Like everyone else, I had first to figure out what was happening to me. That process took many years, partly because when I first sought treatment in the s, psychiatrists had a very different response to depression than they do now.
The focus was on an examination of causes for distress buried deep in your family history and personality. The symptoms were the clues that helped you get access to the past. So the early recognition of depression was restricted to identifying low mood, low energy and low motivation.
At times, I would just float with it, letting myself soak in its darkness. I guess you could call that mindless acceptance, but the only effect was to get a feeling of comfort in my immobility.
I was just trying to figure out my screwed up life. Redefining Depression as Disease Much later I learned that depression influenced me more extensively than I had ever imagined. I learned the contemporary ideas about neurobiology, cognitive dysfunction, comorbid physical illnesses and the pervasive influence of stress.
I connected with the larger world, the millions of people with depression and the array of medical treatments I had had little experience of before that time. I eagerly embraced the medications and newer versions of psychotherapy.
It was a period of new hope and energy in dealing with depression.
Finally, there were medicines that promised to help me feel good without putting me into a stupor. Even though I was the energized and highly motivated partner in treatment, I was in the passive position of waiting for the latest medication or procedure that, maybe, this time, would bring recovery to my doorstep.
I put my hope in transcranial magnetic stimulation and followed the trials and FDA approval process. Unfortunately, it was an expensive treatment that required out of state travel at the time.
As further discouragement, I met a friend — treatment resistant like me — who had tried it with only minimal results. When he undertook electro-convulsive therapy, lost short-term memory and his usual fluency in putting sentences together — but was still depressed, I was scared away from trying that approach as well.
Independence and Taking Charge In the next shift of mindset, I decided that I needed a more comprehensive approach to recovery. I went back to the starting point. I tracked my daily existence to identify all the depressive habits and symptoms that I felt were restricting me and limiting what I could do.
I wanted to dispense with the general list of depressive symptoms familiar from the diagnostic manual and self-help books and see exactly what my version of depression was like.A well balanced life is essential for personal effectiveness, peace of mind and living well..
