¿Es la depresión sólo una mentalidad?

That depression is simply a mindset? Are you tired of hearing this same old information about healing depression? Are you frustrated with the lack of comprehension? Are you mad that we’ve blamed you for your illness, and they think its ‘all in your mind’? Do you want that people would understand that you’re not choosing to have this melancholy – which you’d ‘get over it’ if you can? Have you tried ‘talk therapy’ but you still do not feel any better?

¿De dónde viene tu depresión?

Perhaps you have at times wondered to yourself if there is something actually physically wrong with you which is causing or contributing to your depression? You know you have tried so difficult to ‘pull yourself from the huge black hole’, but it is like the melancholy has got its claws into you? Have you always felt somewhat different – like there is something missing? Do you feel as if you ‘should’ be happy, you don’t have a right to feel miserable and depressed because there’s nothing wrong with your life?

¿O tal vez desde la menopausia, una lesión en la cabeza, la pérdida de un ser querido, un acontecimiento vital estresante o incluso un "colapso", no siente - y se pregunta si hay una razón física para esos sentimientos de desesperación o entumecimiento? ¿Ha estado buscando a alguien que se lo confirme? ¿Esperando que alguien pueda encontrar algo físicamente 'malo en ti' para que se pueda arreglar? ¿Alguien que te demuestre que no eres emocionalmente deficiente o defectuoso de alguna manera?

I need to share with you that it’s extremely possible that a physical or biochemical imbalance is causing your depression. Emotions, behaviour and ideas are merely as biological as breathing and digestion. Therefore depression can be a symptom of a physically unwell mind; like poor vision is a symptom of eyes which aren’t working correctly, and fatigue is a symptom of high iron levels, and a sore throat is a symptom of tonsillitis (infected tonsils).

Mente insana

La depresión, la ansiedad e incluso los pensamientos suicidas pueden ser el resultado de una mente insana o enferma, en lugar de sus emociones no resueltas. Quizá te preguntes: "¿No habría descartado mi médico las causas físicas de mi depresión?". Por desgracia, en muchas circunstancias no lo habrían hecho, al menos no en todas. Es posible que sus médicos hayan realizado dos o tres pruebas estándar para investigar algunos factores aparentemente contribuyentes, pero es poco probable que hayan descartado cada uno de los 20 desequilibrios físicos o bioquímicos distintos que pueden conducir a la depresión.

This knowledge offers freedom and hope for you now. If you have tried counselling, coped with suppressed anger, addressed your emotions and your past, and put goals in place but still struggle under the burden of melancholy – know that there might be a physical, biological, biochemical trigger for this. And the very exciting and life changing news is that as soon as you figure the biochemical cause of your depression, it can be treated efficiently. Please know that curing depression is possible.
