I was looking up some info on air ionization in relation to window cleaning and I came upon this article:
It had an unexpected benefit to me, so i wanted to share it so that even one other person could benefit.
I personally suffer from depression and take meds under Dr. supervision. However, it doesn’t completely solve the problem. I’ve run my wc biz for 10 years and in past years, there have been times where i’ve pulled up to my storefronts and just drove away because i just felt so drained. It’s not that bad now.
No one would know because i manage to laugh, joke around, smile and generally be congenial. But even now, i just dont feel good inside most days that i’m working. I’m at the point that i could/should start hiring at least one helper but i feel that i’d be a less than ideal person to be around, so i hold back and have had to drop very profitable accounts because i just couldnt handle the workload by myself.
Im sure there are others here who suffer from this sickness and feel discouraged about it or feel they should be able to just soldier through it, that it’s weakness. The article i linked above was very interesting to me and my hope is that it will help anyone who deals with depression. Im not so much focused on the govt/military aspect but more the ion part of the article.
Does anyone have any experience with negative ion generators to help with depression? Id be interested in any input you might have. I was thinking of buying one for my car since i spend a large portion of my week driving.
Anyway, from my Dr., what i have learned is that we call it mental illness but jt is actually a physical illness, just like diabetes or a broken bone or poor eyesight. Imagine trying to work your schedule with a broken foot. Or if you need corrective lenses, leave them at home and try working for the day. Now shift that impairment to the most complex thing created in the physical universe, the human brain.
However, instead of a muscle or a joint or a ligament physically ailing, it’s the chemicals that are being/not being sent in between the brain cells that are malfunctioning. The longer it goes untreated, the worse the wound festers.
In summary, if you suffer from depression, i hope the article can help give some relief, in that, we don’t really understand all the factors that may be causing us to feel the way we do. And that any little productive thing that you do in your day is an accomplishment, even if you’re not running as efficiently as you would like.
