Who's tried Mindfulness Meditation for Depression?

Posted by Mtom on December 2, 2017, at 17:05:14

I believe my long term depression began due to endogenous (chemical) factors as it occurred simultaneously with a number of physical symptoms which were subsequently diagnosed as an autoimmune disorder. Doctors believed the depression was a separate issue and I could not convince them I had been feeling just fine before concurrent onset of all symptoms. These symptoms, physical & depression, were what sent me to the Doctors to figure out what was going on. My self esteem was good, life had been going well. Then suddenly an inexplicable plummet in mood plus increasing physical symptoms. Anxiety crept in subsequently.

In more recent years, ongoing situational stresses have deepened the depression. I cannot tolerate Antidepressants - hypersensitive to side effects.

I've taken Mindfulness programs and continue a group and personal practice for several years. It seemed to help at first, but once the situational stresses worsened, the improvement reversed. I continue to practice anyway.

I'm interested in hearing experiences of others who have tried Mindfulness or other forms of meditation.
