Depression and alternative treatments

I am trying to find a part time job. This is really a good way to maintain mental health, at least for me. I usually work in the helping field. I’ve found it rewarding even when working in alzheimer’s or hospice facilities, or with the developmentally disabled. I kind of seem to be able to work with people who are difficult to be around.

That’s a great idea! I volunteer at Hospice and I feed the homeless. It really does help my mood.

I am glad you have that gift and are willing to share it. Seeing folks who may be in worse shape than you and being able to support them in any way is so very rewarding and eye opening. Please let us hear of some of your experiences either working or volunteering.
