The Right Foods For Managing Depression
I can personally attest to the fact that eating more salmon & steelhead trout makes me feel SO MUCH better, especially paired with seasonal veggies and whole grain rice. I love carbs (pasta is an addiction) and refuse to give them up, but I also like to maintain a balanced diet because if my diet isn’t balanced, I go completely insane. I’m 95% dairy free, so all in all, I think I’m doing pretty good on this level. If only everything else worked out the same way. Blech!
To Understand Or Not Understand…
“Some friends don’t understand this. They don’t understand how desperate I am to have someone say, ‘I love you and I support you just the way you are because you’re wonderful just the way you are.’ They don’t understand that I can’t remember anyone ever saying that to me. I am so demanding and difficult for my friends because I want to crumble and fall apart before them so that they will love me even though I am no fun, lying in bed, crying all the time, not moving. Depression is all about ‘If you loved me you would.” ―Elizabeth Wurtzel
