If you noticed some symptoms of depression in you, be low you can find what will help you and what doesn't.

What doesn't help:

  • You have exaggerated demands on yourself (like "I must get out of this at once, I'm not utterly useless, am I?").
  • You accuse yourself of poltroonery and inability.
  • You are ashamed for being inhibited (which is normal if you have depression).
  • You conceal your suicidal thoughts (almost all depressive people have them).
  • You make big changes (moving house, starting a new job, going on holiday etc.).
  • You "cure" yourself with alcohol. It brings temporary relief but the final balance is markedly negative – the already   low level of needed neurotransmitters decreases even more and there is a risk of dependence development.
  • You fall back into yourself.
  • You don't trust doctors.
  • You only rely upon complementary medicine. (We talk about "genuine", endogenous depression. As for reactive or small anxiety depression, some alternative actions can help here.)

What helps:

  • You are nice to yourself. (You accept that depression is just a normal illness and not inability.)
  • You talk to your doctor and tell him or her all important things.
  • You take drugs as you are supposed to do.
  • You make plans of actions for every day. In the beginning it's quite enough just to take out the garbage, then you can add e.g. reading of three pages of a book and the like. You must – SLOWLY – increase the number and difficulty of the tasks and reward yourself for anything you succeeded to fulfill. Rewards should be determined in advance and it can be anything from a piece of chocolate to some new clothes or massage or anything else that brings you pleasure.

From your responses:

PsyChance is a cool idea. Thanks for the inspiration.

Thank you that you exist and that you help!!!

They are really great programs for an affordable price. Thank you.

I have visited different therapists but I had a feeling they went after their own interests and they didn't understand me. I was really helped only here as I had to become a psychologist myself. So thank you.

Thanks for the possibility of completing this program.

a lot of bang for a buck

You know, I didn’t have time or money to go to the doctor’s... and I really think your program has saved me. Thank you so much.

thanks for a smashing course

Thousands of pieces of information (perhaps unfortunately) are available on the internet but only your wonderful and simple (I mean user friendly) program motivated me to take the first steps to really do something and to improve. Thank you!

Thanks, your program definitely helped me.

Thank you for your work and help. PsyChance programs will always be one of my main  resources.
