    The herb is called "St John's Wort". I have used the product from 'Natures Way' natural supplements, one can get this at most health food stores. It is not meant to replace serious drug therapy, but for minor issues it will tend to encourage that balance (help flatten out the highs and lows) which will help life to work again.
    thanks for that reply, i will have to try it......

    When I moved to Seattle and got a medical check-up the doctor asked me if I was depressed. I said yes.

    Then he wanted to put me on those happy pills.

    Mind you, he never once asked me if I had a reason to be depressed, which I did. He just wanted to medicate me, which I found out later is common for Seattle.

    Sometime we are depressed because we should be. If we weren't depressed under certain circumstance then we would be really sick.

    Depression tends to come from the belief of lack of control in ones life. It's normal to be depressed when we find out that we can not control things outside our own lives as when a loved one dies or business doesn't go too well.

    Depression is a healthy sign believe it or not. Clinical depression is not. And there is a big difference for which we have to find out the truth for ourself.

    When depressed I search for the reason. I may be justified for being depressed. Once I can determine why then I can do something about the reason including realizing it's a temporary condition in my life and that all people go though these temporary set backs.

    If I can do something about the reason such as realize business is just not going so well, then I can set about doing something about it and get positive results, which removes the depression. And if business does not get better then I can make the decision to move on in life to something more rewarding. Or if I'm just stuck in the place I'm in due to the local, community or world situation then at least I know it will not last for ever.

    One of my favoriet sayings is: This too shall pass. And it always does.

    Either way, I have plotted a course to control my destiny, life and outcome. And that is a good feeling even if in the present time things are still pretty bad.

    All I can say is that each person needs to know if they have valid reasons to be depressed and all that shows is that they are just a normal human. Or does their depression come from a clinical stand point such as a chemical imbalance for which medical attention needs to be sought.

    Most anyone who isn't depressed in this time in history of our country and world is really sick...or a federal government employee or works on or near Capitol Hill.

    I hope 'the wort' helps...

    When I need it; I tend to use it in the evenings if I get too keyed up and cannot sleep... I take one a few hours before bed, and get a good night's sleep... This tends to start the next day in balance. May take a couple of days to have the desired effect (build up an adequate level in one's bloodstream).

    As with any other solution... moderation is the better approach. ESPECIALLY since we are talking about hyper or down behavior... or addictive behavior...

    Thankfully (Thanks God), I have not needed even 'the wort' in a while.

    Thanks guys. I'm feeling a lot better now. Found some things to do around the house for a bit before dinner. Gonna watch the fireworks tonight at the marina I live at. The owner has a hell of a show every year. Things that blow up also make me feel better. And I will be seeing my therapist of Friday, so that'll help too.

    Thanks again!
