This book is about depression and anxiety — and what you can do about it. It could as easily be titled Pills, Skills, or the Will? It deals not only with anti-depressant drugs, and anti-depressant skills, but includes an anti-depressant will or lifestyle therapy. Drugs can cause side-effects and collateral damage. Talk therapy, such as CBT, though very helpful, may not go far enough. This lifestyle or interaction therapy can be added to any treatment method, with positive and long-lasting results. What is this lifestyle therapy? It is as old as the Book of Job, and as new as tomorrow’s sunrise. In my speeches, I use the acronym ‘Welcome,’ because when I look back at overcoming my depression, I see I welcomed seven actions into my life:W alk half-an-hour a dayE xpress yourselfL ove your neighbour as yourselfC onfess wrongdoing to your victimO ffer forgivenessM ake smilesE ye othersCan anti-depressant drugs handle guilt? Can Talk Therapy repair torn relationships? This lifestyle therapy is not about ‘people-pleasing,’ but about a realistic and practical approach. An approach that can leave you looking at your illness in the rear-view mirror.
