The Best Anti  -  depression Medicine

​The best anti-depression medicine today cannot be bought at any pharmacy or subscribed by any doctor. As life throws me for a loop and tests me abilities to cope, I often go into a trance like state and start thinking the worst scenarios that could happen at any given moment. I realize every one is different are people are far worse off then I am. But when depression strikes, it is hard to look past your own issues and realize this.

Everyone has these "whoa is me" moments in their lives, the difference comes in peoples individual abilities to cope. Many factors can be involved. Some people rely and family and friends for support, others are on their own. Me? I have my dog.

Just recently I had a falling out with a family member and I did nothing but blame myself. I cried for days, wondering where I went wrong and had no idea how to fix it. After the third day of my grief, I was just mindlessly going about my morning routine and my dog (Luna) out of the blue stopped in front of me and blocked my path. With her being a herding dog I just thought that she was asserting dominance like these breeds are prone to do. So I did what you are supposed to do and gentle pushed past her and kept going. Not even three steps and she did it again. I looked down at her and she put her ears and tail down in a sort of submission pose. Then it sank in that she was trying to get my attention. I knelt down and started petting her and was given doggy kisses, a waging tail, and cuddles in return. She knew I was upset and was trying to make me feel better. It worked.

Her affection brought me out of my funk and I felt much better. I then realized how much depression, not only affected me, but others around me as well, and that I was neglecting her while I was feeling sorry for myself. Luna knew I was depressed and that I was having a hard time coping. She did what she could to help bring me out of it.

So you see, you don't need any drugs, prescriptions, alcohol, or any of that mind numbing stuff to help you out of your depression. All you need is a dog. They are the best anti-depression medicine in the world.
