What's my depression story? I remember not so long ago sitting on my couch unable to form any words with my mouth. My husband asked me questions and I could only muster up enough strength to look back at him with a look of "why don't you just kill me now?" I couldn't speak. I was so emotionally exhausted and mentally burnt out from suffering from depression. I could not sleep and would get up in the middle of the night to stare out the window in darkness. I was completely lost.
That seems like ages ago but it wasn't... (The video below refers to over 50 countries. Update: now over 90 countries have accessed this website.)
I have now come out of my pit and these days look out of my window excited about life. When my husband talks to me, I am excited to answer! My passion is for life. My joy is found in living and in especially helping others find joy out of depression!
Once you fall into a pit of depression, it can be VERY hard to get out. But, it is possible and you need to be shown the way. I had friends, family and research to guide me. Here's my input to help you along your own journey through your depression.
"How did this site on my depression story come to be?"
The idea for this website- on sharing with you my successful depression recovery story- began after having coffee with a friend and months after recovering. She had been a loyal friend giving me strength throughout my journey back to joy. She asked me,
"Wow, you’ve come a long way! What exactly helped you get out of depression?”
The more we talked, the more we realized that many of our friends and family members were going through the same thing and NEEDED to hear my depression story and what HELPED ME! (Depression is more common than we initially realize!) Perhaps we could help people around the world!
I found and interviewed other former depression sufferers to learn their depression story. I've heard from business professionals, doctors, moms, and dads who had similar successful stories and I’ve collected this info in this website FOR YOU!
This site with my depression story has been created for you with the help of every day people each with their own depression story and each with a happy ending. They are moms, college students, teens, business professionals...
I initially did the research (truckloads of medical journals) and experimented with the research for my own depression desperate to beat it!
You can take this online depression story – and learn how to defeat your depression. (I hope that what you’ll find here will save you hundreds of dollars in unnecessary treatment.)
Here we share with you what we've learned to prevent it from ever happening again.

"Can you trust what you read here?"
For your benefit, you will notice that we cite every source for information and that sources are strictly from medical journals. You can be confident in the information that we are not passing on something we merely heard. We took our own mental health seriously and went straight to the medical journals as a result. We take your mental health seriously as well and so we provide the info sources for you so that you can go to your doctor with confidence.
Remember I am not your doctor! This site gives info so that when you go to your doctor, you have all the right questions to ask!
Beating depression requires you getting the knowledge. You cannot be diagnosed online but you MUST learn all you can before you go to your doctor with questions.
