So I downloaded it on iBooks and read a couple of chapters and it's already helped me with anxiety (which is more my thing than depression but they are closely linked). I think it could help you with your depression. The first chapter gives you statistics on depression and that alone made me feel better! So if you have iBooks or Kindle or whatever, take a look.



    P.S. It's by Dr Russ Harris.
    Thank you for sharing!

    It really does feel like a hole sometimes.
    Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some, are given a chance to climb. They refuse, they cling to the realm or the gods or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is. —Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish, Game of Thrones

    To cope with your depression do things to help others. You'll be surprised at what doing something as little as complimenting someone can make you feel happy. Try talking to people on depression forums who are experiencing a similar situation and seek to make them feel less alone. In the process, it may help you to feel less sad and alone.

    No matter how powerless I may feel I know always have a choice.
    Knowing that may give me hope - however only by taking steps can I find my way out.



    But that's OK - You can climb out whilst you still have your period. You don't have to leave it behind if you don't want to. hahahahaha ... just kidding.
    My wife won't sleep with me, so I will blame that instead. It's beyond my control. hmmmm somehow I don't think it works like that. Again ... we always have a choice.

    Passes you a ladder ... your choice.

    For my depression I often use essential oils. Lavender oil is my favourite. Of course, it's not the main treatment. But it helps for depression, insomnia and anxiety.
