After struggling with debilitating depression for years, I realized that I needed to do something to make things right. I started focusing heavily on getting help, and I found a counselor that was an expert in self-help. She taught me different techniques for how to calm down when I was feeling stressed, and it made a huge difference. This blog is dedicated to improving self-help practices and avoiding long-term ramifications of depression. I know that without some of the practices discussed in the articles on this site, I wouldn't be the person that I am today--and I probably wouldn't still be married.
