Years ago St John's Wort and SAME were natural depression remedies that were popular. Does anyone here have any experience of knowledge of either one?
They have depression support groups out there that could possibly help. I have had some negative experiences with most therapists but if you find a good one especially one that uses cognitive behavioral therapy that might help. There are also self-help books out there for depression that you could explore. Maybe go to Amazon and see what they have. This is a great book on depression The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I do think the author took meds but you could still get much out of reading this book. He writes beautifully.
