My Story of Depression

I first remember having feelings of depression as a youngster.  My first memories of mood problems was when I was 10 years old.  I started thinking about some rather dark stuff for a 10 year old such as death.

I even once tried to kill myself by taking a bunch of melatonin, which thankfully just made me feel very rested the next day.

I was always in a fog and never wanted to be with other people.  I thought that everything was normal; I was just “different.”

Once I entered High School, my feelings of depression started to worsen.  My older brother got a rare form of peritoneal cancer at the age of 23 which killed him in a month afterwards.

Addiction
During this time, I started to go down the spiral of addiction.

There’s nothing quite so raw as hitting the rocky bottom from depression and drug addiction.  I had suicidal thoughts everyday and eventually realized I needed a change.

I quit drugs but I was still depressed.

True Recovery

I realized the severity of my problem when I went skydiving.

Imagine having your own parachute (I was training to get certified), flying up in a plane, jumping out of this plane, free falling at high speeds with winds rushing past the tiny spaces between your teeth, reaching over and finding that lifesaver of a parachute and yanking it out to your side, and safely landing on the green earth.

And not enjoying a second of it.  As I was walking back into the hangar, everyone greeted me with smiles and excitedly asked me, “How was it?!”  I shrugged my shoulders and replied, “Eh, not bad.”

When I landed, I was still depressed

The Turning Point of My Life

My friend that I was close to for 17 years died.  I gave the first speech, was a pall-bearer, and followed the hearse to the cemetery on my friend’s bike.  I cut myself a deal.  I said I would do whatever it takes, and if I am still depressed by February 2012 I’d kill myself.

This allowed me to try everything and not hold onto beliefs I had about treating depression.

About TJ Dominate Depression Bike Ride to Funeral

Riding behind the hearse to the funeral.   This sparked the “deal” that I made with myself that changed my life forever.

After trying positive thinking, a crazy lifestyle, skydiving, exercise, changing behavior, meditating, improving communication skills, trying an antidepressant, etc. I finally realized the last piece of the puzzle – nutrition.

I began eating healthy, testing out certain foods for allergies, and taking vitamins, magnesium, and supplements such as 5-HTP and DLPA.

I can now finally say that I am basically depression free and haven’t felt better.

These are some of the things I’ve discovered from living with depression for 11 years:

  • Depression is not “sadness” that can be “shaken off.”  It is not just “in your head.” It literally activates the brain’s pain circuitry which can be more severe than physical pain.
  • Medications are not the only way to alter brain neurochemistry.  There are tools within nutrition, foods, and supplements that can do the same thing.
  • Recovery and kicking depression’s ass is under the control of the individual.  Assertiveness in getting your needs met and doing whatever it takes  to beat depression is essential to feeling great.
  • Community is the ultimate safeguard against depression. Social isolation is a massive risk when it comes to depression.
  • You can move beyond depression, get your life back, and begin to pursue greater things.
  • You can cure your depression, chances are, you just haven’t tried the thing that will fix it yet.
