I always appreciate whenever someone writes in to ask me a question about their health. I recently received a message from Remy about depression, and I wanted to do a deep dive on the subject to help clear up any confusion – and address some action steps.
Here’s what Remy wrote:
“Hi Dr. C,
Something has been wrong and I’m not sure what to do. I just don’t find myself happy anymore. I never seem to be able to get enough sleep and I’m always down on myself.
I have no reason to be upset because I have a lot of things I should be thankful for. My guess is that I’m depressed. I don’t believe in taking pills for it. I already take pretty good care of myself. I googled natural remedies but I’m not sure what to believe.
You explain things really well and I trust you. Do you have any articles about depression or any advice?” – Remy
