When you know a person going through a depression, you should know that depression does not come as a bad mood. It’s not a sad moment or day, but much more than that.
All those who go through depression are the hardest fighters. Every day is a huge struggle for them. But they become sleeping every day (they themselves know how), they deal with their pain, with all that they feel. People with depression go to work every day, fulfill all their responsibilities and responsibilities, although they do not have the motivation to do so.
They make a constant effort for themselves and for the people they love, but sometimes it is too much for them. Simply getting out of bed and dressing up the laundry is an overwhelming struggle some morning. They are aware that they may be irritating people around, but depression is a disease, a huge darkness that affects their spirit. If they were formerly people who constantly laughed, they are not the same anymore.
Depression is not a weakness, it is a darkness that affects our brain and extinguishes all light and happiness. Many people are constantly trying to escape from such darkness, but it’s not easy. So do not tell them to stop being sad, do not tell them that they should laugh. They already know it, but they can not do it differently.
They are the strongest people you know. You do not know their fight and you will never find out, but be patient with them. Do not judge them and you do not tell them to change. Help them.
Depression and Diet
Unfortunately, there’s no specific diet that’s been proven to relieve depression.
Antioxidants Prevent Cell Damage
Our bodies normally make molecules called free radicals, but these can lead to cell damage, aging, and other problems.
Studies show that your brain is particularly at risk. Although there’s no way to stop free radicals completely, you can lessen their destructive effect by eating foods rich in antioxidants, including:
- ****Vitamin C: blueberries, broccoli, grapefruit, kiwi, oranges, peppers, potatoes, strawberries, tomato
- ****Vitamin E: margarine, nuts and seeds, vegetable oils, wheat germ
