I think mine is gone, altho I've said that before only to be proven wrong. This is the first January I can remember where I'm not severely depressed. Usually my birthday in mid January is a time of great angst and reckoning.......this year I feel very different. Let's just say my depression has gone dormant.
I maintain lifestyle activities that keep depression at a minimum Some form of meditation, qigong right now, a healthy, no sugar plant based diet, not much alcohol, fasting, and exercise. I believe the real cure was something I did five years ago, a self inquiry technique that, over time and gradually, changed my life from emotional pain and suffering to enjoyment and satisfaction. This act allowed fear to let go of my mind and for it to heal doing the restorative practices I mentioned. This is something very dear to me because I suffered for 30 years and investigated just about every spiritual and psychological practice I could only to have the hope held out by these notions attenuate my depression and pain.
I used John Sherman's self inquiry technique based on his study of Ramana Maharshi's work. It's free, simple, and direct but does take time to do it's work. PM me if you have more questions. Best wishes.
