A friend on mine informed me that there had been an evening’s workshop running at Wat Tyler Park recently on depression. There were approximately 200 people there listening to the speakers.
In relation to the economic climate, people worrying about their jobs, declining health such as Cancer’s and Alzheimer’s disease, life experiences, is it a wonder more and more people are finding it difficult to cope?
In my experience I have always managed to climb back regardless of what life throws at me. But what if you can’t, what happens then? Where do you turn for help, guidance, practical help, support or a kind listening ear?
It would be interesting to find out where people go to get support or help with their depression. Depression may be hereditary, related to life or ill health. What have you found useful if anything that has helped you?
From my experience in the exercise industry and as a trainer to individuals on medication, I have found that regular exercise helps my clients lift their mood in order for them at times just to function. Having someone on side to encourage them to work out and move their body has kept some of my clients going when they had no one else to turn to.
You may not feel that exercise is the answer for everyone, but, I do believe that exercise prescription for depression needs to be more available. Ask your G.P if you feel it is appropriate for you, to enquire if there are any classes or personal trainers in the area.
You showed me how to do exercises correctly, now I can do them without causing myself endless appointments at the physiotherapist- you are the best.
I am 88 years old, tried to move the sofa in my flat and hurt myself, thanks for gently manipulating me and putting me back together
No one training session has ever been the same. This has been the only exercise session I have stuck too. Thank you for adjusting them when I am not on top form or on top of my game- Love it
Being clear in your instructions and your advice, which you deliver with compassion and honesty, has helped me feel confident and hopeful
Your guidance and support has helped me understand that my sister and I are doing the right things for our Mum.
I found your speech very informative. I know that I am going to be the one that has the primary role in supporting my dad, my mum, and brother and sister. I know it’s not going to be easy and what sticks in my mind is the importance of looking after myself. Your personal input touched a chord that no website could match and I will heed your advice.
I hit someone and in the moment hurt my shoulder. First appointment sorted even though I have exercises to do and a follow up appointment, Thanks for always finding a way to fit me in with my crazy work schedule.
An excellent series of small and easy to understand books with a clear incisive analysis on a vitally important topic of dementia, which raises public awareness from the carer point of view.
Discovering Just Call Me Reg has made such a difference to my life – and my family’s too. We were at our wit’s end when my husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, but Jane’s practical advice has made it possible to see a much more positive future.
Training my wife until Alzheimer’s disease really took hold of her, really helped her and supported me. Now I am 87 and 15 minutes gentle and appropriate exercise before my massage has helped me feel better. Has lifted my spirits and got the juices flowing. My back is better too now you have showed me what exercise to do at home to open up the joint.
