What are the symptoms? There is a solution
As you see in my “About Me” page, my name is Mike, and I come from Greece.
In 2008 Greece entered a new era, the era of crisis. In 2010 the prime minister of Greece announced the bankruptcy of this country. Then everything started to collapse.
In 2011 I closed my company and I was officially unemployed. That same year my wife lost her job. We were both without a job and we had two young children.
All my savings ended quickly and I did not have enough money to pay any kind of bills, food. I was so desperate.
That same year my brother got found out with cancer. My best friend fell in a coma for 2 months due to a serious stroke. Everything was a nightmare.
Symptoms of depression.
-Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness.
There was a bleak outlook—nothing will ever get better and there’s nothing I can Io to improve my situation.
-I lost my interests in former hobbies, pastimes, social activities, or sex. I also lost my ability to feel joy and pleasure.
–There was a significant weight loss. I had lost more than 7 kg of body weight in a month.
– I was felt really exhausted and I was sleeping all the time
– I felt fatigued, sluggish, and physically drained. My whole body was heavy, and even small tasks were exhausting or took longer to complete.
– I had strong feelings of worthlessness or guilt. I had harshly criticizing myself for perceived faults and mistakes.
– I was engaged in escapist behavior such as reckless driving, and dangerous sports.
–There was a serious trouble on focusing, making decisions or remembering things.
– I remember that I had an increase in physical complaints such as headaches, back pain, muscle aching, and stomach pain.
There IS a cure for depression!
Depression is an awful illness. If you suffer from it, it can make your life a living hell. Thoughts of self-doubt, feelings of helplessness and hopelessness, insomnia or oversleeping, feelings of anger or irritability, loss of energy, strong feelings of self-loathing, worthlessness or guilt, problems concentrating and suicidal thoughts are all common symptoms and can all make life seem pointless.
Then there is the stigma, that even in the 21st century is still attached to mental illness. People with depression are sometimes thought of as weak and stupid and told to “just get over it”, which of course just makes the depression worse. 350 million people suffer from depression globally, and less than half of them get any kind of treatment for it because of this stigma, which is just terrible.
Then, those that seek treatment are given antidepressants to treat their illness. The trouble is, antidepressants have a very low success rate, and even what is considered to be a ‘success’ is just a lessening of symptoms – they don’t cure depression at all. Plus, these pills come with awful side effects. These include a risk for increased hostility, agitation, anxiety, and sexual dysfunction. The worst side effect has to be a risk that suicidal thoughts will increase. Yes, that’s right, for a depressed person who may be having suicidal thoughts, the usual course of action is to prescribe them a drug which is known to increase suicidal thoughts! Antidepressants can also cause severe withdrawal symptoms if you stop taking them abruptly.
These drugs also cost a small fortune. Even if you are lucky enough to live in a country with a National Health Service like the UK, you still need to pay for the prescription to get them from the pharmacy. That’s around $15 every 2 weeks, or roughly $400 a year – all without any guarantee of success.
The other options people with depression have are talk therapy, counseling or psychotherapy. While these sessions are known to have a better success rate than antidepressants, they have one major drawback: They cost a fortune! It is not unusual for a top psychiatrist to charge over $800 for an hour of their time, and will usually mean a visit every week. And do these forms of treatment come with any guarantees of getting your money back if they fail? Of course not!
There has to be a better way to treat depression than just throwing pills at the situation or charging ridiculous amounts of money for an hour of someone’s time. There has to be a cure for it, rather than something that ‘might’ lessen the symptoms. We put a man on the moon, we invented the Internet where the answers to almost any question mankind has ever asked can be found at our fingertips, we live in the 21st century for Pete’s sake! There has to be a way to actually cure this illness doesn’t there?
Fortunately, there is….
I decided to fight my illness without doctors and medicines. Without psychiatrists and pills.
I wanted to take my life back again.
I began to read books, to learn about my problem.
I started riding in the sea, looking for friends, reading philosophy, and trying to energize my body with sports, yoga and jogging.
Then I learned that this system follows in his book a guy from the UK called James Gordon.
James Gordon believes he has found the cure. He had suffered from depression for over 20 years and had previously spent years on antidepressants which gave him all manner of side effects without helping and spent thousands on therapy sessions without success. He finally snapped one day and decided to find a cure for depression himself.
He then spent years researching everything about depression that he could possibly find. He trawled the Internet and read thousands of articles on the subject, searched through dozens of medical books and consulted countless specialists. He even downloaded dozens of e-books and systems written by life coaches and gurus, watched hundreds of hours of videos, talked with people who battled with depression themselves who had recovered and even met with people who had attempted suicide and survived to hear their stories.
What he ended up with was a 7-step plan which eliminated depression from his life completely in just 8 weeks, and never returned. He has now packaged it into what is called The Destroy Depression System™ and made it available to everyone with an Internet connection. And he also GUARANTEES it will work.
When was the last time a drug company or therapist did that?
I have two years of feeling good. I have found myself again.
I think creatively, I found work and my life makes sense again.
Today, my children and my wife are seeing me again active and happy.
I know how you feel because it’s what I’m feeling. But you are not alone. You have to fight to win back your life.
In this case, James Gordon’s book can help.
