Overcoming Depression And Live A Fulfilling Life

It is possible to overcome Depression without the use of drugs? Yes it is, YOU have to want to have a better life. The decision to change is up to you and you have to make the commiment to take responsibitlity.

Depression is one of the most misunderstood illnesses, If you have never had depression you do not understand what the person is going through. It is also very stressful for the family members to know how to deal with a depressed person.

I was diagnosed with depression in 1978 after the death of my brother I was put on all sorts of drugs anti-depressants, tranquilizers, and sleeping medication and told by the medical profession I had to be on them for life. I was kept on this for 17 years. In 1992, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to have a double mastectomy this did not help my depression the following year my mom passed away, my eldest daughter got married and left the country to live in the UK. All of this caused my wheels to come off and I had a massive nervous breakdown. I went to a fantastic psychologist who recommended I go for Reflexology treatments to learn to relax. The Reflexology and the Psychologist did wonders for me. I came off all the medication very slowly and now live a wonderful life. As a result of the reflexology treatmetns I began to study reflexology and now run my own full time practice. I specialize in depression, anxiety and panic attacks. Over the years I have developed a one day workshop which I run in South Africa as well as an online course.

One thing that I found very important after I came off the drugs, I had to find the self-esteem which I lost for many years this was another reason for the workshop. The most rewarding was to see many of the people I have helped live a woderful life of freedom and value who they are.

After the completion of the depression course there is the Be Successful workshop which helps you find your purpose in life and achieve all the success you deserve.

Firstly to be able to overcome depression you need to understand where it origanally started. For example the depression could have started in your early childhood and only appear later in life. Secondly you have to want to get better and thirdly take the responsibility and action.

Maya Angelou Painting Installed in National Portrait Gallery



(ABC News)

A portrait of Maya Angelou, unveiled in April, was installed today at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.

The portrait, painted by Bulgarian-born, Atlanta-based artist Ross Rossin, is an oil-on-canvas painting and was completed in 2013 in honor of Angelou's 86th birthday.

Angelou was present for the unveiling in April and was surrounded by family and friends.

"She was able to share with us her thoughts about life and about her life, and she reminded everyone to always have patience and to listen," said Dorothy Moss, associate curator of painting and sculpture at the National Portrait Gallery. "This portrait reflects that warmth and spirit, and it looks as if she's in conversation with us. It looks as if she's listening to us."

Johnnetta B. Cole, a friend of Angelou's and director of Smithsonian National Museum of African Art, was at the installation and remembered how special it was to attend the unveiling.

"She was here in the fullness of her creative voice, in the most eloquent expressions of her humanity," Cole said. "Today, she is not here physically, but this is the power of portraiture: In a sense she is here. She will always be there. Some of the 30 million visitors to the Smithsonian every year will be able to visit with Dr. Maya. I'm so glad she is here."

The painting will be on view through June 12 in the first floor gallery.

New South African news channel launches

JOHANNESBURG (AFP) - A new 24-hour news channel was launched in South Africa on Wednesday, owned by a wealthy family close to President Jacob Zuma.

Africa News Network 7, ANN7, will focus on "constructive, nation-building stories in the interests of building a culture of unity and pride," according to its website.

Based in Johannesburg and employing more than 75 journalists, the channel is owned by the wealthy Gupta family who moved to South Africa from India.

The family own Sahara Computers and The New Age newspaper, which is considered pro-government.

"ANN7 heralds a new era in news broadcasting which will give South Africans access to both sides of stories of national importance," said CEO Nazeem Howa, quoted by The New Age.

The well-connected Guptas sparked outrage in May after flying in wedding guests from India to a military base on the outskirts of Pretoria.

A probe found that Zuma's name had been dropped to secure landing rights, but that he was not involved in the scandal.

ANN7 is the third round-the-clock TV news channel in South Africa and follows the public broadcaster SABC's launch of a continuous service on August 1.

The 24-hour private eNCA channel went live in 2008.

These three channels are broadcast on the satellite DSTV pay service, which also carries several foreign news channels.

The ruling African National Congress welcomed the new network, saying it "trusts that it will play a constructive role in our national discourse."
