There is a mountain of information and sources that makes pretty sensible points about what might help to relieve a depression. But if you have no idea about what actually is the real cause of these awful depression experiences and why they seem to be getting worse whatever you do – well all of these tips and ideas will fall well short of what is needed.
Depression tips are mainly OK, but on their own they are just not enough. Like Hungarian goulash without the paprika – something is missing.
And what is it that is missing? It is a clear explanation and understanding of what a depression is – namely the exhaustion caused by worrying too much and hence engaging in far too much high energy dreaming.
