What To Post About On Your Mom Blog About Your Family’s RV Trip

If you run a mom blog, you should know full well that a family RV trip is far too big of an opportunity to pass up to write about.

In fact, you can probably get multiple posts out of a single RV trip, even if it’s only a quick…

The Importance of Dinner Together

Many mothers believe that the single most important activity you can do with your children is to read to them at night, help them with schoolwork to make sure they get good grades, or make sure they are always nearby.  …

Over 120 million people worldwide suffer from depression, one of the leading causes of disability according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Despite these alarming statistics, many people with depression don't know that's what ails them. Lots of sufferers think their symptoms are due to lack of sleep or a poor diet. Others know they're depressed, but they're too tired or ashamed or, believe it or not, too sad, to seek treatment.

And the sad thing is...

aside from the depression, I mean...

the sad thing is that these people suffer needlessly. With treatment, chronic depression gets better. Take it from me...I know! Treatment works. And lifting depression feels wonderful!

According to Dr. Mitchell Mathis, deputy director of the Division of Psychiatry Products at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), "...the best way to treat a patient with the more severe form of major depressive disorder is through both therapy and prescribed antidepressant medication. They work best in combination with one another."

I want to point out that therapy might be necessary initially, and is absolutely vital for teens and kids, but is not a life-long commitment for most. Chronic depression is a biologically-based illness that responds well to medication and/or lifestyle changes including awareness of appropriate sleep needs, dietary adjustments, and limited (if any) alcohol consumption.

Here are some of the most common symptoms of depression:

~Depressed mood, feelings of sadness

~Loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities

~Changes in appetite or weight

~Disturbed sleep

~Slowed or restless movements

~Fatigue

~Loss of energy

~Feelings of worthlessness

~Excessive guilt

~Trouble thinking, concentrating, or making decisions

~Recurring thoughts of death or suicide


If you experience more than three of these symptoms, see your doctor.

At your initial appointment your doctor will take a medical history.

BE HONEST! The information you share will enable the doctor to evaluate symptoms, rule out medical causes of depression, and determine if you suffer from major depression or another illness or disorder.

Work with your doctor. Get better. Depression is treatable, and it's worth it.

You're worth it.
