We all hear of people, family and friends, respond to the question “how are you?” with “Oh, I’m so depressed.” At times, we hear that phrase so often that we almost just glaze over and accept that it simply means that the person has a case of the “Blues”. Consider this, however. What if they have not simply got the “Blues”? What if you simply have not got the “Blues”? How will you deal with it? How will you help them deal with it? Do you know what types of depression there are and be informed enough to help?
Being in denial is the biggest mistake that supporters make because it will cause you to miss the signs/symptoms of your loved one going into a bipolar episode. It’s so important, first of all, that you know all the signs/symptoms of an episode, so that you can recognize when your loved one is heading for one. That takes education on your part. That’s the easy part. But recognizing them may be a little harder, and takes more work on your part, because sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference between which is the disorder and which is your loved one. However, if you’re in denial, it won’t help either way.
“I have sought help many, many times for my problems. The last counselor I recently saw told me to spend 10 extra minutes in the grocery store for therapy, and I can’t stand going to the grocery store. I told her I had two issues I wanted to deal with that day and she never even asked what they were, just told me to spend more time in the grocery store… last time I’ll go to her for help. I live in a small, ignorant town, so there’s not anyone here who can help me. I’m trying to get back to Atlanta. There are much more possibilities of getting help in Atlanta.

Have fixed rest timings. You may find it hard at first, yet continue to persist with this. Shortly it can become a habit. Right after getting up, get outside for some time in order to expose yourself to the early morning sunshine and inhale fresh air.

One alarming fact I found the other day when I was surfing one of these forums, was how many people still view hypnotism either as a rip-off, and/or something that just doesn’t work.
This leads directly on to Aaron Beck’s theory of cognitive depression. The traumatic event in childhood is called a ‘schema.’ It covers a whole group of occurrences, some big, some small, that happened to you in your childhood and formative years. The whole point of cognitive-behavioural therapy is, with the help of a psychiatrist, to keep digging down until one or more stressful events are unearthed. Once this has been accomplished, then the cure may begin by gently and gradually having the patient face these adverse ‘schemae’ of their lives.
