” It has been my experience that those who come to at least six Depressed Anonymous meetings in a row or more can discover how their lives take on a new hope with a spiritual outlook they never imagined possible. So, if you find yourself depressed and want to do something about it–make a decision today to feel better and attend a meeting near you. If a group is not available -read the DA literature.
So many times I have found persons who tell me that they didn’t really know that they had a choice. Namely, they hadn’t heard that there was a way to get yourself out of depression with work, time and a step by step program. They hadn’t heard someone say that now you have a choice to get out of your depression. We see this happen all the time at the Depressed Anonymous meetings.
The First Step of Depressed A nonymous says that” we admitted that we were powerless over depression and that our lives had become unmanageable.” We know and believe that we are no longer victims.
“Now that I have admitted that I am powerless over my depression I don’t do myself any good blaming myself with those daily reminders of how bad and unacceptable I am. I now am conscious of a new path out of my misery.”
