#6:Willpower and Prayer is not Enough!

Ever think “I can get through this with prayer or willpower”?  I know I thought so too.  But while very helpful, they are not enough.  Having a mental illness is a physiological condition that needs treatment.  It requires medicine, in addition to other forms of treatment to address it.  In my book , Me? Depressed?: A Story of Depression from Denial to Discovery (2013) I offer “The 7 P’s of Medication”.  As you heal, some more than others may take precedence or may even be eliminated altogether.  But together, they all play a significant role in healing.
