I recently found this site and plan to do some reading there:

Depression is not a disease. It is a symptom. Recent years have seen a shocking increase in antidepressant use the world over, with 1 in 4 women starting their day with medication. These drugs have steadily become the panacea for everything from grief, irritability, panic attacks, to insomnia, PMS, and stress. But the truth is, what women really need can t be found at a pharmacy. According to Dr. Kelly Brogan, antidepressants not only overpromise and underdeliver, but their use may permanently disable the body s self-healing potential. We need a new paradigm: The best way to heal the mind is to heal the whole body. In this groundbreaking, science-based and holistic approach, Dr. Brogan shatters the mythology conventional medicine has built around the causes and treatment of depression. Based on her expert interpretation of published medical findings, combined with years of experience from her clinical practice, Dr. Brogan illuminates the true cause of depression: it is not simply a chemical imbalance, but a lifestyle crisis that demands a reset. It is a signal that the interconnected systems in the body are out of balance from blood sugar, to gut health, to thyroid function and inflammation is at the root. A Mind of Your Own offers an achievable, step-by-step 30-day action plan including powerful dietary interventions, targeted nutrient support, detoxification, sleep, and stress reframing techniques women can use to heal their bodies, alleviate inflammation, and feel like themselves again without a single prescription. Bold, brave, and revolutionary, A Mind of Your Own takes readers on a journey of self-empowerment for radical transformation that goes far beyond symptom relief.

I recently hired a fantastic woman who has changed my life.

I had gone to my regular doctor complaining of increasing depression and she gave me a list of therapists and said "you really need a life coach but insurance won't cover that". She gave me medication and the referrals but I think she meant that I needed practical help as well ex finding a job.

I remembered that I had hired someone to complete my daughters college applications and help with essays so I asked her to help with practical matters like writing a resume, making phone calls, clearing my desk etc. I guess you could call it OT? Anyway so far she has helped me decide on a career and comes to the house and makes sure I do whatever I need at that time. Up until now I've relied on my kid but that isn't really fair to her.

Anyway I won't post the name here I guess. I don't know if this an appropriate place to mention all this but if anyone wants the name or has thoughts on this concept please let me know.

“Practice makes neurons! Mind exercises will form new get-out-depression neural patterns that can be used in place of the old depression neural patterns.”
~ A. B. Curtiss

Depression_Is_a_Choice review @goodreads.com

Review - Depression Is a Choice @metapsychology
(I haven't read her counter arguments yet. )

abcurtiss.com/quotes.html

I'm recommending you to check her out. I'd say she's illegally good or something, my common sense in addition to my mental sense are rejoicing, my bet is that her editor couldn't handle her, the point of her self is not how right her claims are, but rather how one should seek one's own design, and build it from ground up with big purpose. I haven't read the book by the way, she sounds like much better person than Virginia Woolf whom I was reading earlier about.

Anyway: The Paradoxical Commandments: Finding Personal Meaning in a Crazy World.

Channel your inner bipolar!

Digesting Depression by The Agenda with Steve Paikin

My Personal Experience with Depression by Gregory B. Sadler

Both videos are on youtube. I think I'm gonna binge watch Dr.Sadler's videos soon. I'm looking at this new 'core concept' series and 'My phase' videos, I think they are easier than his other serious lecture stuff.

Edited to Add:
'George Orwell and 1984: How Freedom Dies' by Academy of Ideas

This made me think of the importance of individual free thinking and cognitive development. It's just something I came across today...

Nassir Ghaemi and The Psychological Fallacy By Philip Hickey, PhD, @Mad in America

This was a good read, both guys know a thing or two about philosophy, it is possible someone could fall deeper in their depression after reading this. So, please stop reading if the article seems too much for you. 'Thus Spoke Zarathustra' could send some Christians into tailspin of doubt, similar mental crisis could happened to a naïve mind. Sorry if I sound too pompous or too egoistic, it's just a fatum of a higher man, trying to perfect his solitude.

By the way, Dr.Nassir Ghaemi has some lecture videos available on youtube, they looked cool. It's your belief and value system, and these are action predicated theories, I don't see any reasons for us members to be opposing to each other, I'm neither an establishment nor a sponge for your Ressentiment, I'm simply a bridge to this self-organizing chaos, of multiplicity, un-catchable and un-herd-of, go study Heidegger with philosophy brothers at 'Crazy Philosophy' social group if you don't like me, до свидания.

Edited to Add:
It might be also helpful to philosophize on 'Hickam's dictum' in psychiatry.
