Depression hurts the lives of the depressed but also of those who love them. If someone you love is hurting, what can you do? Not only must you take special care of them during this time, but you must also remember to care for yourself.
Caring for someone with depression can create an emotional strain affecting your relationship, your home atmosphere and even your work or career. Perhaps you may find yourself at the end of a rope not knowing how to cope yourself. You sometimes feel like walking away but even admitting this feels like you would betray them.
Yes, it is extremely important for your hurting loved one to talk, talk, talk things out through therapy but are you doing this too? You need someone to listen to you too. Who can you turn to? (Speak with an online counsellor.)
Don’t let this destroy you.
Remember to care of yourself along the way and guard your own thoughts. As your loved one expresses negativity, this can rub off on you. Then, you too can start to slip into a negative thinking pattern. You become what you think about.
What do I mean? Negative thinking produces negative results, a negative self-esteem, a negative outlook on life and soon you slip into depression. To get out of this trap, read “The Emotional Jug” as well as our critical report: “6 Ingredients to Cure Depression” which can be applied by the helper as well.
We understand that depression hurts the sufferer as well as the helper and that’s why we decided to share our research and our story – to help both of you!

"Hello Merri Ellen I am a therapist who runs out patient programs for people with mental health issues. One of my clients alerted me to your depression site today and I am impressed by both your energy and your generous contribution to others suffering with illness. Thank you. I have just completed reading through your info. Found it to be a wonderfully informative resource and will not have any problem in passing on your website address to some of my clients. The greatest value is in the fact that you have been a consumer and have a very different understanding than others may have. This allows you to be heard a little more readily sometimes. I thank you for your courage and wish you good health always. Regards" - Sue

"I am 63 years old. Went through severe depression about 5 years ago. If I had ended it all, I wouldn’t have the joy in knowing my new grandchild. I followed the steps on this web sight and I’m certainly glad I did. I feel your pain, I hope you can find your way out. No one can do it for you. I’m off all medication and still experience sadness and disparities but those times do not last. I am cheering you on my peaceful home in Tulsa. Don’t forget to do your light therapy. Journaling helped me, Keep moving forward, you may find joy in your life next year." - Anonymous post in our Forum :)
"As a licensed clinical social worker and a woman with a life-time history of depression, I really commend you on the work you have done on this site." - Robyn, Social Worker
"I have been depressed for most of my life, have read many books and articles have taught others about depression, have taken various antidepressant medications. I have begun taking your advice on how to overcome depression for just over a week now.
I am encouraged at what i have read and i have put into practice what has been suggested. I have found that the research of Merri Ellen is very good, it is practical and makes common and medical sense. I fully agree that the medication is only part of the cure for depression, in that it takes away some of the worst symptoms of one's depression. The time to do something about one's depression is when the bad edge has been taken off. I have started the process you recommend and i am encouraged at my progress so far.
The big difference is that i have taken a decision to carefully put into practice what i have been told. So far so good and thank you for your advice. It has been a blessing to me." - Tony
