Health knowledge made personal
I'm just an average guy who like a lot of folks has had some dealings with depression in my life. The primary cause was from traumatic life events over a short period of time. The suicide of a good friend, the death of my best friend from cancer, divorce and subsequent alienation from my daughter, my parents Alzheimers & death of my mom, etc. all contributed to feeling overwhelmingly sad.
I found a great deal of help in managing my blues through T.L.C. (therapeutic lifestyle changes) and decided to share my journey online through my blog Walking the Black Dog. Winston Churchill used to describe his depression as "walking the black dog" and hence the name of my blog.
