I'm going to rehab next week.
No, no, no, I do not have a drinking or drug problem
and I won't be locked up for weeks.
I suffer badly from Seasonal Affective Disorder and I've
been having deep depressions since I was 11 years old.
Nowadays I'm not as bad as I used to be and I don't use
any medications (they've done more damage than good)
so to prevent a huge depression I'm entering a wellbeing
program where I can go swimming, play badminton, go
bowling, use a gym and attend pilates and yoga classes.
I'll be living at home as usual but I can come and go to
the center as I please until March.
Best of all, for me it's free.

I hope it goes fabulously for you lovely - sounds like a great idea! I get SAD but only mildly, I can't imagine how much it must suck for you :(

Wonderful. I agree...medication does more harm than good. My husband had horrible results from a common psychsomatic drug. He now treats his anxiety issues with vitamins and beer. LOL

I read your blog every now and then and I have just read your comments about going into "rehab". I too suffer from depression and dislike taking medication. I just wish I could be as open and honest as you! I think you post is a positive step to others appreciation depression for what it is - a manageable illness.
