Thank you for sharing your experience with fasting and mental things. I find this to be my last hope. I have been a respectful coach potato along with "living up to my nick-name." I am overwhelmed with your responses and support. Overmedicating with food is obviously not doing me any good. I went to get some fresh fruits and vegetables and will slowlly get back to a cleaner self before I jump into a serious fast. I will let you know what happens.
As far as enviorenmental causes for my Depression - there is none that I can see. I just fisnished school this year (May), had an exeptional summer, personaly and professonaly, and I even got a job after an interview last week. I am keeping involved with the community but right now keeping afloat is a drag. I do hope, I receive some enlightening soon! My job starts next year and I need to put my best foot forward and a new professional space. I rather need a striking lightening!
About the reason of depression- I also thought and read abot its biological necesity but what I got here is an exess. Hopefully, by unberdening my physical body I will free the creative juices in my brain. I am not striving for a permanant botox smile. Sad times call for natural "down" time and the blues. I count my blessings and look inwards everyday and wonder what is preventing me from being complete?
Thank you very much! I will keep you posted, hopefully, soon with some clear, inspired and rejuvinated and life loving mind.
