Today I quote from Johann Hari:
"Up to now, we have put the onus for solving depression and anxiety solely on depressed and anxious individuals. We lecture or cajole them by saying they have to do better (or swallow the pills). But if the problem doesn't originate with them alone, it can;t be solved by them alone. As a group, together, we have to change our culture - to strip out the causes of depression and anxiety that are causing such deep unhappiness."
It's not all about a 'chemical imbalance in the brain' - it is about external forces gradually wearing away at you, then internalising those feelings. Please feel free to call me at the Anxiety Solution in Canberra to discuss a way I can help you. Phil Morey
