My depression has taken over my life. I’m trying to deal with it with a therapist. I’m having trouble taking an antidepressant. Any ideas on alternative treatments?

      If you can exercise, try going on a walk and then really paying attention to how your brain feels afterward. I have started to notice that if I get my blood pumping, it’s easier to manage my depression in the short term. I know it can be hard to get the motivation up to do that though!

      Therapy. If that’s not enough, Spravato. You do have to be on an antidepressant to take Spravato though. You can also try TMS.

      What do you mean you're having trouble taking an antidepressants? If there is something natural I'd like to know! I'm just plain ole tired of this life but have my 80 yr old mom to take care of plus a bunch of others...looong story.
