Been doing some thinking lately. That could always be a dangerous thing. But in all seriousness, what if this depression thing is all in my head. Maybe that says something about my perspective on my mental stability. Maybe it is actually good to consider this.
What would happen if at the next doctors visit, she says that somehow they were able to decide that I have been cured, would my symptoms go away? What if this is not real at all?
I compare it too the placebo effect, in which people feel better even when given placebo pills in the place of actual medicine. It is in the head. Many people believe that quite a bit of how our bodies function is related to our thinking. This includes everything from weight loss to self healing.
Obviously our bodies are limited to a degree. We will never generate extra limbs or regrow a limb that has been lost. We can’t travel through time or space, and will probably always have to eat some kind of food. But maybe there is a lot of power in our thinking.
This is certainly not making light of anyone’s battle with depression or anything else, not even mine for that matter. These problems certainly manage to manifest themselves in many different ways. Oh well. I guess if we had all the answers, we would be gods and not humans.
Thanks for reading. Cheers!
