An introduction to a topic I really want to write about, this topic is depression and it will be from an angle wisdom gleaned by observing situations in my professional and personal life. l shall write it as a weekly post. You assume that in the family setting you can and should be open and honest about your lives and worries. However, it is not always easy for the person going through depression to tell you about their problem. Even if they do it might not be in a way you can comprehend, recognise or relate to. In my experience, through observation of each others everyday behaviour, as one does, you can know patterns and these can be used to recognise the beginning of a shift from the norm in the physical or emotional persona or in their mindset.
Whether the person is undergoing treatment by a psychiatrist, having counselling or neither, but relying on the love and care of family and friends, little acts of kindness do help. Specifically, it’s about planting happy memories, which then go a long way to helping in their recovery. You might be thinking, but the source of each person’s depression is different, just remember, love and kindness make a big difference to all of us, no matter our problem. You probably won’t like to do this but out of love you must.
Lesson One:- Using meal times to communicate and reaffirming you care. Never forget to greet or say hello anytime and but don’t overdo it.
For example, saying “Good morning, how are you? I have your breakfast. I pray you feel better today. and I am here to listen ” makes a lot of difference even though you might not see it straight away.
Even if you are not allowed inside the room or the person is not getting out of bed at the usual times, leave the tray of food by the door and give that information too.

Don’t be overcome by day to day stress
Scripture says “there is nothing new under the sun”
Talk to someone don’t keep it bottled up.
It does help to open up.
Greatly anticipate the joy of a newborn,
The family increases, ties are bonded,
Echoes of joyful youthful sounds,
Create laughter amid the tears,
That come with disagreements.
Greately steer them into adulthood,
The family looks up to them,
Rashness of teenage voices
Calmed by listening ears,
Brings wisdom that stands like monuments.

Place it with care
Respect that hard work earned it,
Understanding and appreciation
Don’t assume it will come easy,
Every day is full of surprises,
No matter how prepared you are,
To save for a rainy day.
There are many a good time to pause.
Have you ever climbed a hill?
And just before you get to the crest,
There are many a good time to pause,
Have you ever had someone ranting for no reason?
And just before you answer back,
The health of a nation is so vital for many reasons, in this case I am referring to the human physical and mental health. It is the type of structure or model that has been set up which should allows access by all the inhabitants and anyone in need of care whether they have symptoms or not.
The public sector health services have been thus organised to cope with this. However financial constraints or should I say prioritisation is causing deficiencies in the system therefore giving rise to debates and discussions as to how to solve this problem..Symptom
There is a pattern in everything,
The way we talk,
The way we move,
The way we relate.
What is it that you do well?
Sure you found a pattern,
A winner that gives great results,
So you keep it and and replicate it,
Someone learns from it and becomes
A better person with knowledge too.
No No No,
Don’t doubt yourself,
You are as capable as the next person.
No No No,
Don’t give up,
You are as successful as the next person.
