When I returned to nursing in 1994 I never expected to specialise in the field of Mental Health.
It was the furthest place I wanted to be. Life was difficult enough without the added trauma of dealing with difficult people.
Yet my placement demanded I be rotated in different sections of the hospital.
From day one I formed a love for these hurting human beings.
In all my time working in psychiatry I was never threatened hurt or harmed, yet many nurses are. I believe the reason why was because I always showed a genuine respect and care. In return I received the same. There is much I could write about, however I would simply like to hit on one area…….. Depression.
During my research and studies I learned that by the year 2021 the largest debilitating contributor to disease would be depression……
and I believe this to be so.
Depression and the road out…
One of America’s greatest Presidents suffered from all consuming depression. Born into a poor family he felt life was against him.
His one true love died an untimely death and he failed at work prospects.
In one of his darkest hours he wrote the following.
“I am now the most miserable man living.
If what I feel were equally distributed to the whole human family, there would be not one cheerful face on earth.
Whether I shall be better, I cannot tell.
I awfully, forebode I shall not.
I must die, or be better it appears to me.”
Well we all know this man survived and went on to greatness.
His name was Abraham Lincoln.
For everyone who has suffered from or still suffering depression you will know how seemingly hopeless this subject can appear.
For that reason I am recommending a book that is the best I have ever read.
Written by a medical doctor, Neil Nedley M.D, who uses a different approach, and successfully treats many patients! I cannot recommend it enough.
He does NOT apply a band-aid effect....of "here take this medication" solution..
But gets down to the root issues of how and why.
Diets and light is used to nourish and stimulate the brain to wellness......
Read it for yourself! and be encouraged! There is help!
AND please give me your honest opinion after your finished.
"Evening and morning and at noon, I will pray and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice."
