I have CTE (concussion related trauma). I'm battling depression and would like any recommendations you might have.

    Hey, your depression can have an organic reason which is your head trauma. Have you met with a neurosurgeon or a neurologist?

    No, after all the tests and scans I quit the medical route. I've been dealing with CTE for years before I figured out what was going on. I'm looking for a sustainable lifestyle without all the drugs.

    Supplements (omega-3, ashwagandha, b12, d, magnesium) have really helped me. Water! Mediterranean diet, yoga/stretching, and hikes have kept my days more balanced.

    I have been on an ssri antidepressant since my brain injury in 2005 and I will remain on one for life. It’s been 17 years and I can’t imagine life without it. Depression is not something you have to live with. ❤️ Our brains are no longer the same.

    My antidepressant is the ONLY medication I take other than vitamins. I get not wanting to be on meds.
