Is there hope for recovery from chronic illness?

I have suffered from chronic depression, anxiety, and PMS for over 15 years– nearly half of my life. For as long as I can remember, happiness was seldom and sorrow was abundant. As with many chronic sufferers, I have seriously considered ending my life on more than one occasion. I was willing to try anything to kill the pain.

I have spent the last 10 years trying to find a solution or ‘cure’ for my mental illness that did not involve psychiatric medication or therapy. Here is a break-down of my current plan:

  1. Restricted diet consisting of mostly organic, raw foods
  2. Daily meditation and other relaxation techniques
  3. Daily gratitude journal
  4. Supplements: Vitamin D3, magnesium malate, maca, and probiotics
  5. Detox yoga and daily walks
  6. Abstinence from alcohol and other drugs

I believe than I have made significant progress in the last few years and wish to document my discoveries here. I am hoping that other sufferers may read my work and find some hope for their own lifelong recovery.

This is my first entry.
