I suffer from depression. Lately it`s been off the scale. I can`t stand the medication, Lorazepam, it turns me into a zombie so I don`t take it unless things get really medieval. I`m also one of these stubborn gits who won`t ring any of the helplines or talk to anyone about it, because I`m a bloke and we don`t do that.
The best therapy is to spend time doing what you like and spending time with friends. I`ve been pretty selfish and done 11,000km`s on my Sprint in 10 weeks, touring with my good friends. There is no better thing for the soul than a motorbike and an open road. It works. It really does.
There is no easy answer to the common cold of ''depression''. 1 in 4 people have a mental health issue in their lives apparently.
I have battled this, but over time it has been defeated! I still have down times but through being honest about it and the support of loved ones it has departed in it's virulent form. No pills, no bull and many less problems for me - but it is a very very hard road.
Take care mate and God bless you.
Happiness is a warm gun (song from when?). What is happiness? Do you pursue it or is it a by product of life?
Serenity often considered and seldom found?
What do people think?
|My day has been a delight when I've spent time with God, have exercised in some way, have been around a friend(s), have read something engaging, and of course, ridden.|
